Romance Meets Modern In This Green Wedding Shoes Feature

Fruits and ferns dusted the industrial landscape of our Hangar 21 South Venue for a dramatic, whimsical ceremony. Amber Events designed the spot with a custom backdrop, handcrafted tables, and one-of-a-kind details that showcased a twist on the traditional black and white wedding. With a combination of clean lines and vintage touches, this shoot, as featured on Green Wedding Shoes, will leave you speechless.

A touch of romance decorates the tablescape with stone fruits and dried florals.

Our beautifully crafted cake is truly a feast for the eyes.

Fly Me to the Moon: Minimalist Wedding Inspiration | Featured on The Perfect Palette

As a helicopter tour company and venue, naturally the sky is our favorite place to be. Jessica Foster Planning and Peterson Design & Photo teamed up to bring that inspiration back down to the ground. With a less is more approach, this vendor team enhanced Hangar 21 North’s modern, whitewalls by bringing in hues of blue and hints of amber and gold.

The couple meet inside for a ceremony. The aisle accented with gold geometric terrariums that paired with a gold and geometric ceremony moon by Paper Moon Shoppe showered with flowers by Going Steady Studios.

Our bride dressed in a modern soft blue dress, and shining star pumps, while her groom complimented her with a dark steel grey from Stitch and Tie. A reception to follow with lounge and rentals by Sweet SalvageRentals.

Moon & Stars Baby Shower | Featured on 100 Layer Cakelet and 100 Layer Cake

There couldn’t be a more perfect combination than a sky-inspired baby shower and a venue that will take you there. Queue the Helicopter! It’s no wonder it was featured twice this week on 100 Layer Cakelet and 100 Layer Cake. (hyperlink below)

When you bring in the dynamic duo of planning, design, and perfecting all the details- Laura of Perfectly Poised Events and Candace of Candace Jollee Events-you can expect nothing less than an event this dreamy. We are thrilled to be a part of celebrating the arrival of Bennett James with some of our favorite vendors, including Mom, Aly, and Grandma, Theresa, of Sundrop Vintage. It was so special and fun to be celebrating their growing family. Check out some of our favorite details:


To Eat- A brunch assortment of colorful fruit, salads, breakfast quiches and a savory taco bar. YUM

To Drink- Served up from the Hello Penny bar rental, an assortment of beer, wine and bubbly.

Take Flight- Nothing about this baby shower was average, so naturally the prize for winning a game- a Helicopter Ride. With a gift like that, all the ladies and guys were competitive and eager to play!

We’re happy to share that sweet Bennett James was born on August 6. We can’t wait to meet you little guy!

Summer Wedding Inspiration: Jarryd + Kirstie

 Jarryd and Kirstie’s June wedding captured the romance of a tropical summer night with a color palette that rivaled the melting colors of a sunset- with green floral accents.

The evening began with an indoor ceremony-the stunning backdrop would be repurposed for their sweetheart table. I do’s were exchanged and their 120 guests were invited out to the Tarmac where they were greeted with a summer breeze, signature cocktails, and tray passed appetizers- crab cakes topped with a mango papaya salsa and crisp, cold vegetarian springs rolls. As they enjoyed the runway views with planes and helicopters in the background- the team inside worked to transform the space for reception. Viola!

They entered their reception in true Hangar 21 fashion with a helicopter grand entrance, but if you’re wondering what a grand entrance REALLY looks like on the other side. Here is the reaction from family and friends:

The tropical theme of the night carried on with a menu to match- beginning with a colorful Papaya salad, with an entrée choice of Kalua Pork with a Pineapple Brown Sugar glaze or Macadamia Mahi-Mahi served alongside candied sweet potatoes and a Hawaiian rice. For dessert, a cherry on top of a build-your-own sundae bar and fresh, warm cookies.

An Intimate Weekday Wedding: Princesa + Johnathon

On April 12, 2018, this couple celebrated their union with their closest family and friends- which began with an outdoor ceremony on the Tarmac, with an arch that the groom himself designed and created. For cocktail hour, a selection of tray passed appetizers including Jay’s famous Palm Sandwich. Dinner included an All-American buffet of Boneless BBQ Chicken, Smoked Beef Brisket, Mac and Cheese station plus fresh Cesar Salad, Potato Salad and Dinner Rolls.

The music flowed through the venue, and guests only left the dance floor to be whisked away for a helicopter ride or to refill their drink-both leaving guests buzzing. With a helicopter entrance, the Bride and Groom ended the night equally as grand with a sparkler exit. All captured beautifully captured by Christy Johnston.

Congratulations Princesa and Johnathon.
