It poured the morning of Brandon Soto and Kayla Bond's wedding. The rain was so heavy that it ran in rivers down dirt driveways and washed across the country lanes that wind through the cornfields and farm stands of Pungo. They weren't worried one bit. Miraculously, the clouds parted and the sun streamed through in all of its golden glory just in time for the ceremony. The Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach seemed the only place fit for this wedding. The daughter of an F-14 Navy pilot, Kayla grew up around airplanes and traditions. Naturally, instead of walking down the aisle like a million other brides.....Kayla and her father rolled up to the ceremony in a red WWII era Waco biplane. Of course! The groom, with a smile from ear to ear, stood patiently waiting for his beautiful bride to step down out of the cockpit and into his open arms. At sunset they exchanged vows next to the runway.
Afterwards, they were all joined by family and friends overlooking the ceremony site to celebrate. Not to be outdone by an airplane, the mother of the bride, a mechanical engineer, also known for her magic in the kitchen, unveiled the Pittsburgh cookie table. Over 20 different kinds of cookies were spread from end to end on pedestals and trays....all baked lovingly by Kayla's mother, grandmother, aunts, and family friend. It was a sight to behold! The wedding party and guests danced the night away, a blur of deep plum satin and bowties. For the father-daughter dance, the bride and her very tall father walked somberly to the dance floor, only to surprise everyone with a perfectly choreographed Macarena. It was yet another surprise for this one of a kind wedding. What else would you expect from a bride and groom who met while operating a 30,000 pound vehicle? Nothing short of amazing! Congratulations to the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Soto!
