We recently had the pleasure of having one of our weddings that was inspired by the couples’ love for vintage and travel featured on

Candice and Chris are both JAGs in the Air Force who share a love of travel. (They met in Italy!) and they decided to pay homage to their careers as attorneys by hosting their reception at the historic Old Dayton Courthouse after getting married at Holy Trinity Catholic Church.

Decor details included iconic European and travel elements such as postcards, luggage/travel stickers, suitcases, hotel keys, and an appetizer table depictive of a Parisian market. The centerpieces featured their collections of cobalt blue wine bottles, vintage tea cups/saucers, and old books with French, German, British, and American titles.

During the reception, Heidi with Paint Your Event captured the event on canvas, creating an incredible and unique keepsake that now hangs in their home.
