You'll be able to feel every single emotion Bernardo & Vidal felt during their Industrial wedding at an aeroplane hangar in Seattle, USA. Including the tears, the laughter and the pure joy as Beatrici Photography and second shooter Chris Barber have captured it all. They dine on McDonald's Big Macs, have a friend conduct their ceremony and Bernardo's father bakes their wedding cake. Plus, they look incredible in matching white tuxedo jackets and gold Cambodian outfits. What a couple, and what a wedding!

What Made Out Day Unique

A love for aviation and our collective obsession with older buildings led us to this former WW2 hangar. Seattle doesn’t have many historic venues, let alone ones that could fit our entire family. Finding ways to include our family through baking the cake, and our culture by hiring Ben to do our traditional Cambodian clothing, and bringing McDonald’s in at the end of the night definitely stuck with our guests. Thankfully the venue, our team of vendors, and planners, tied it all together to host an unforgettable night.

Industrial Wedding

When you have a large family and wedding party I might add. (Hello 11 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen!) Then you need a large wedding venue to accommodate everyone. Bernardo & Vidal's love of aviation lead them to a Seattle aeroplane hanger and thus their industrial wedding was born. They filled it with foliage, gold details and festoon lights, and looked like they loved. Every. Single. Minute!

Wedding Suppliers

We chose suppliers that felt at ease with the process. Choosing minority or female-owned businesses were also guiding factors. Additionally using wedding websites for some guidance in how to choose and for reviews. Several suppliers were found through Instagram like our photographer Alline! We met in London for our engagement shoot and fell in love with her, and had to have her do our wedding as well.
