The 1940 Air Terminal Museum would like to share a special thanks to Barry, Talia, and Karen with Smashing The Glass for featuring our venue.

In January, we had the honor of hosting these two special people’s wedding.  Smashing The Glass and Talia’s beautiful recollection of the event made for a wonderful article.

They were able to allow readers to get a true glimpse into the uniqueness and beauty of this wedding.

Thanks to the bride, groom, and all vendors involved, once again the 1940 Air Terminal Museum had an event for the ages.

Read all about it here!
