1940′s Hawaiian Flavor In This Aviation Dream Wisconsin Wedding
This wedding is so much fun for a variety of reasons! I dont want to double talk over the note from our wonderful photographer, but I will say the location for the reception is AMAZING! There are also little details about this wedding that are superb such as the thought & design behind all the printed material, the super fun idea of setting table names as debate topics and so much more! Do enjoy!
Note from Alex + Natalie Nelson Photography:
“What happens when you blend elements of aviation, Hawaii and the glamorous 1940′s in Wisconsin? You get a fantastic wedding full of life, color and personality…and SPAM! Hawaii wedding photography right here in the heart of Wisconsin. Their wedding was full of fantastic details including a decadent cake from The Cake Guru and delicious appetizers which included Spam sushi and other assortments of delicious Hawaiian inspired cuisine. The tropical flowers brought on the color wheel with blues, oranges, pinks and yellows! The ceremony was held in the backyard of Katie’s childhood home with impeccable landscaping done by her mother – the word amazing doesn’t really do the landscaping justice. Plus, the area was peppered with tropical plants and ferns that made it feel like you were experiencing the tropical atmosphere of Hawaii. And finally…The Reception! EAA was the perfect backdrop for a fantastic cocktail hour amidst the historic planes. Other than chatting with friends and family, the venue provided endless opportunities to walk around and explore the history of aviation. There was even a fantastic Flight Simulator for guests to experience…best before dinner! And…to share Katie and Kevin’s perfectly complimentary and happy blend of personalities, their first song was perfectly choreographed to “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off”! Now, we take you back to 1940′s Hawaii…”
Katie and Kevin met when they lived in Hawaii. Kevin was stationed with the Navy in Honolulu and Katie was going to school at the University of Hawaii working with WWII materials. Their first date was via Corvette to the North Shore where they stopped to see sea turtles before getting pizza. They watched the sunset behind surfers at the Turtle Bay Resort, before driving Katie home with the top down, listening to Elvis Costello on the iPod – dreamy right!?
