This Couple “Flew” a Different Direction For Their Unique Wedding Location

Think Outside the Box with This Unique NC Wedding Venue

Heather and Joshua knew they wanted something totally different for their wedding. They had attended so many weddings in the past due to their photobooth company and wanted something far from the norm. With Josh’s sister owning a local Raleigh airport hanger, the idea of an aviation themed airport hanger wedding was one they just couldn’t pass up. This unique NC wedding venue was decorated in navy blue, blush, gold and ivory accents and aviation themed details, to create an incredibly cool and rare wedding experience.

In keeping with the theme, the bridesmaids wore navy long gowns. The groomsmen wore grey suits that corresponded to the groom’s suit with an added navy blazer. Heather, the bride, looked absolutely breathtaking in a traditional lace gown with a scoop neck neckline.

Heather & Josh’s Love Story

The couple met at a Midtown Beach Music event at North Hills and “it was love at first sight,” shared Heather. They are both avid CrossFit athletes and were participating in a Valentine’s Day workout event for couples. The couple, along with a group of friends, decided to take advantage of the photobooth at the event and pose for a group shot. After the second shot, Josh got down on one knee and held out a ring. The bride said, “we’re not sure if either of us actually said anything but I happily accepted the ring and we got a really great picture full of shocked faces all around!”

Aviation Themed Wedding Reception at Unique NC Wedding Venue

The groom’s sister, being in the aviation business, gave the couple a unique plan for their wedding. The aviation theme was put together through details like bottle opener wedding favors, name cards and a paper plane send off for the bride and groom. The airport hanger being used as a wedding venue in Raleigh gave guests a unique experience that they would surely never forget.

The couple topped off their untraditional NC wedding with a dessert bar display instead of the typical wedding cake.
