Ever consider turning an airplane hangar into your wedding reception? Layce + Brandon did when they transformed his dad's corporate hangar at Mankato Regional Airport into an elegant wedding dream. 

Their day began with a traditional church ceremony and portraits in a nearby park, followed by their hangar celebration that even included an actual airplane.

Ah, just wait till you see these photos. We adore weddings that are creative, offbeat, and include a personalization of the bride + groom. Couple it with DIY projects and you have us flying over the moon.

We're guaranteeing you first class seats and a smooth flight into Layce + Brandon's beautiful day. Hurry up and grab your one-way ticket to see all the goodness Laura Robinson Photography captured.

Soft pink + white hues = simply elegant. Lynette's Touch of Design really worked their magic.

And of course you can't forget about the shoes. Layce wore Blue by Betsey Johnson and totally rocked it.
