Emily Broadbent Photography: Megan-Tim Helicopters Hangar Wedding
There are weddings…and then there are airplane hangar weddings. I’ll be the first to admit, that when Megan told me her reception would be in an airplane hangar, I had no idea what to expect. I knew it would be awesome, and I was beyond excited about it, but that was about it! Then Megan and Tim’s wedding day came…and all the awesome and all the excitement, turned into one word: EPIC.
Megan and Tim’s airplane hangar wedding was nothing short of epic. The day started at Megan’s parents’ beautiful home where Megan and her girls got ready and prepared for her big day. Typical with Missouri in April, it was raining, but that did not damper the mood in the slightest. There was too much excitement for the day ahead. And the epic-ness began with Megan’s dress. THE dress.
The dress that no one would have ever guessed Megan would choose, but absolutely perfect for her nonetheless. Add in the gorgeous, cathedral length, beaded veil, and Megan’s turquoise stiletto heels, and perfection was an understatement. Then there were the bridesmaids, wearing the classiest black pant suits…things were shaping up to be classy AND epic.
And just like that, it was time. Time for Megan to walk down the aisle, arm in arm with her dad. St. Agatha’s Catholic church was full, and everyone stood and turned as the doors opened…and out walked a bagpiper and drummer! Epic. But everyone, Tim most of all, was anxiously waiting for Megan. Watching her walk down the aisle, minutes away from marrying her best friend, was magical.
During the ceremony, the rain cleared and sun filtered through the stained glass as Megan and Tim shared their first kiss as husband and wife. The perfect spring weather that greeted us all as we left the church, was just another glorious addition to this perfect day. Especially when we got to Tower Grove Park, and all the spring blooms were calling for us!
While the bride and groom and their wedding party were taking pictures, their guests began arriving at the Helicopter’s, Inc. They were greeted with a cocktail hour and then called to their seats in the massive airplane hangar. A small airplane, a helicopter, and two fancy cars made for the perfect backdrop. The only things missing were the bride and groom and their wedding party!
The guests eagerly waited as the hangar doors were opened wide. And down the runway came two horse-drawn stagecoaches, filled with the cowboy-hat-wearing wedding party! Megan grew up with horses, and wanted to include her love of horses in her wedding somehow. An epic stagecoach entrance was the perfect way!
The cake was cut, the toasts were toasted, and the party was underway. The airplane hangar was massive, but it was filled to the brim with love and happiness for the newly married couple. The epic day was the perfect start to the rest of their lives, and I am so grateful to have been just a small part of it!
How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.
We met at work and became friends that eventually morphed into a relationship. His proposal was classic down on one knee at my parents’ house with each of our families there to celebrate the good news.
Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
Get a good photographer! Emily was the BEST and looking back I am so happy we have such great pictures to remember the day. She knew just what to capture and was helpful in keeping everything on schedule as well. I’m so glad she was our photographer, I think that was the best decision we made!
