Unforgettable Wedding Location
Our daughter and now son-in-law's wedding at the New England Air Museum (NEAM) was the experience of a lifetime. Family members and friends all have said that this was truly a wedding to remember. Many of them have a background in aviation and everyone was thrilled at the opportunity to celebrate in the midst of "such cool airplanes!!". The staff at NEAM was incredibly supportive and we are so grateful to them for making this beautiful occasion possible - and for all their many kindnesses and help to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Sent on 10/15/2018
