California Wedding Day Spring/Summer 2023


At the Commemorative Air Force hangars in Camarillo, brides and grooms can tie the knot under the sun and among vintage planes to make for an unforgettable day. An entirely volunteer-run museum/facility dedicated to preserving the memory of those who fought in World War II, the hangar is filled with restored planes from that war. In this setting, a wedding in a CAF hangar is nothing short of cinematic, so it’s no wonder the property has been used in countless films and TV shows, including The Bachelorette, MasterChef and too many designer advertisements to name. The vintage airplanes can also be brought out during events to introduce a unique visual element. Ceremonies can take place out on the tarmac or inside the hangar, with the option to have the doors open to reveal unobstructed views of the Spanish Hills in the distance or closed to create a modern industrial look. 

With the capacity to accommodate as many as 1,000 guests and complimentary parking provided, the venue is well-equipped to make planning seamless for wedded couples to-be. The CAF hangars are also centrally located just about equidistant from Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, making it ideally situated for couples with loved ones scattered throughout Southern California.  

What’s more, all of the planes kept at the hangar are in flying condition, so couples not only can say “I do” on the runway, but also find themselves airborne in a once-in-a-lifetime joyride to commemorate their special day.
