Erin and Matt’s wedding is best described as something akin to time travel. Their ceremony and reception were held at the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, California, and there are certain shots the photographers captured that make it seem as if this could not possibly have been a modern day wedding.

And that is very much what it felt like that day. The entire event took on the feel of another place and time, due in large part to the level of detail Erin and Matt worked hard to incorporate into their theme. From bridesmaids reminiscent of chic stewardesses of years gone by…

The general feel throughout their celebration was as if you had magically found yourself at a festive, 1940’s USO event.

And everywhere you turned there was a little something to remind you of the romance of history, aviation and travel.

Mutual interests and shared passions incorporated into a wedding really create something quite special, and that was certainly the case here.  Congratulations (and Happy Anniversary!) to Erin & Matt!
