It’s no secret that we here at ModCloth are mad about everything vintage, so when we received this #MarriedInModCloth submission from Katie, we just had to share. See why we’re swooning below, then be sure to submit your own #MarriedInModCloth tales here.

Newlyweds: Katie (bride) and Dalton (groom)

Date and location of your wedding: March 15, 2014 at the Asheboro Aviation Museum in Asheboro, NC.

We hear you have a shared passion?: We both have a love for the WWII era and Dalton loves planes. It was no surprise we wanted a 1940s-themed wedding. Securing our local aviation museum as our venue cinched it. Having our ceremony in an airplane hangar made for a beautiful, unique, and simply unforgettable wedding.

Tell us about what you chose to wear for your wedding day: I love lace and the 1940s look. I’m not a big fan of satin so I really wanted a dress that screamed vintage, but that was also modest. The Gilded Grace dress I bought was not only gorgeous, but fit perfectly with our theme.

What was your first dance song?: “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong and “In The Mood” by Glenn Miller.

Most memorable part of your big day: For me it was walking down the aisle, my nerves were all over the place and I literally thought I would fall. Seeing the look on Dalton’s face was everything I hoped it would be.

Any shopping tips to pass along for those who still haven’t said “yes!” to a dress?: Go with your gut. If you’ve fallen in love with a specific style of dress, just go for it. Too many choices can cause stress. No matter what, you’ll always look beautiful that day.

Any fun wedding day stories to share?: Well let’s see, I had purchased myself a lace garter for under my dress. As I came walking down the aisle, my mom mouthed to me that it fell. I was so scared of just everyone looking at me I didn’t think of it until my mom quickly came up to me and fixed it, haha. Pretty much the only mishap of our day.
