Winnipeg Wedding Photographers | Throwback To Smoking & Drinking On Planes

This is a part two from a wedding from this summer. We were so lucky to have exclusive use of the hanger at the Royal Aviation Museum following this newlyweds ceremony! We boarded Air Canada flight 637 to Montreal round-trip. The bride and groom sipped their signature blueberry martinis and smoked cigarettes, as all passengers would have done circa 1955. Their wedding attire could not have been more perfect to take us back in time!

My mom told me a while back that when travel by plane first started it was a high class event. You made sure to wear your best outfits, hair was done with great care, and there were no limits to the number of bags you could take. Smoking aboard – you bet. It was like a social gathering where mingling was part of the experience.

I was so excited when this couple suggested we do some  “Mad Men” style shots on the plane. And you know me, this kind of vintage styled set is my jam! I was lucky enough to have my fellow photographer, Chenoa Walker pop by to collaborate on these shots. She has a real passion for lighting and it was exactly what was needed in the very dimly lit plane. Don’t worry, we didn’t actually light the cigarettes and no drinks were spilled. I believe that it is very important to respect venues when using them for photographs.

I wonder if Kara and Dave had this much fun on their plane ride for their honeymoon….
