Emma + Bobby

March 25th, 2023

A Memorable Helicopter Wedding Exit

Can you envision a more unique wedding exit than the thrilling spectacle of a helicopter? While there are several trendy alternatives, such as the timeless horse and carriage or the chic vintage getaway car, Emma and Bobby took this tradition to unprecedented heights by opting for a grand helicopter getaway. They left Dover Hall, taking in the nighttime Virginia countryside views just outside of Richmond, VA.

But that wasn't the only imaginative touch at Bobby and Emma's wedding. Emma's mother infused her personal flair by monogramming each guest's dinner napkin, and by adding decorative elements like the sash on the trumpet during the couple's grand entrance into the Grand Ballroom as newlyweds. With the guidance of their wedding planner Melanie from Lane Stewart Events, Emma and Bobby hosted a truly timeless celebration, earning them a feature in the well-known Virginia Living Magazine.

What could rival a wedding send-off where you soar away in a helicopter? It's the epitome of a lavish fairy-tale wedding. Dare to be inventive with your distinctive wedding exit, leaving your guests with a lasting memory to cherish for years to come.
