Misty and Nando were married at the very cool Museum of Flight over Thanksgiving weekend. Misty wore a vintage-inspired off-the-shoulder gown, birdcage veil and sexy red satin heels. Her stylists did a beautiful job with her Marilyn-inspired curls and classic make up, and Nando was (as Nando always seems to be) all smiles. :)
We began with some fun at Alki and moved on to downtown Seattle before heading over to the Museum. Their ceremony was beautiful and fun. When asked for the ring, his bestman instead pulled out a remote control. Nando then drove the little car, equipped with a video camera, up the aisle to record the events. Such an awesome idea! The couple moved to Australia (back to where Nando is originally from) two weeks after the wedding and love to travel. To celebrate that, as a post ceremony send off, their guests threw paper airplanes made from world maps. So very clever. :)
There were many other travel inspired elements included in their wedding design. Each reception table included handmade velum lanterns with a different international cityscape motif as well as individual wedding glasses with the Chinese character for Double Happiness. Their cake was cleverly designed to look like vintage travel cases and their escort cards were luggage tags.
I had a wonderful time with these two and am so happy for them. Their love and joy is infectious, not to mention all the smiling! You simply cannot be around them without noticing a slight lift in your spirits. Best wishes Misty and Nando for a wonderful future full of exploring and lots and lots of smiles!!
