Destination Wedding at Acre Resort

There are weddings, and then there are weddings that take your breath away. As a destination wedding photographer, I’ve seen my fair share of unique ceremonies, but this one was truly a flight above the rest. Imagine the romance of the open sky, the thrill of aviation, and a couple whose love is as boundless as the horizon. This is the story of a Petaluma airport elopement.

Nestled in the heart of Sonoma County, the Petaluma Municipal Airport was the perfect backdrop for this high-flying romance. With its sprawling runways and the gentle hum of planes in the background, it was a setting that spoke to the adventurous souls of our couple – two pilots who found love in the clouds.

What makes this elopement even more special is that both the bride and groom are pilots. Their shared passion for flying made the airfield more than just a venue; it was a symbol of their journey. Dressed in elegant attire, they contrasted beautifully against the rustic charm of the hangars and aircraft.

As a photographer, my aim was to capture the essence of their adventurous spirits and the depth of their love. The airfield provided a wealth of stunning backdrops, from the vintage planes to the open skies. The couple’s chemistry was undeniable, and their light-hearted, bearded joy made every shot a treasure.

After the ceremony, the celebration was equally unconventional. The couple’s shared love for flying was evident as they joyously explored the airfield, posing with aircrafts and celebrating their journey. The joy and love in their eyes were as clear as the blue sky above.

As a photographer, capturing such unique love stories is what fuels my passion for wedding photography. To the couple, thank you for letting Wild Love & Wanderlust Photography be a part of your beautiful journey. Here’s to love that knows no bounds and adventures that take you to the skies!
