From Leslie Herring EventsWhen meeting Scott and Christine, it’s apparent that they behold a one-of-a-kind, lasting relationship. Through the entire planning process, they never lost focus of the significance of their wedding—each other. We knew that their genuine friendship and personalities had to shine through in every aspect of their wedding, and we constantly swoon over the gorgeous memories captured by Brett Heidebrecht Photography. The Oklahoma History Center’s natural light was the ideal venue for the couple’s simplistic, yet sophisticated reception. We began planning around the neutral, earth-toned color palette and added metallic accents. Blends of ivory, white and slate paired perfectly with the bridesmaids’ blush gowns and groomsmen’ navy suits. Thoughtful floral concepts by Juniper Design added a whimsical flair, using friendly anemones, dahlias, peonies and an assortment of greenery. Romantic, amber uplighting by Innovative Event Solutions paired with festive marquee lights set the mood for the evening. Thanks to Glorious Day Films, we can relive this magical evening over and over again.

Something Gold PhotographyI was thrilled when Katie and Taylor of Ever Something Event Styling were on board to collaborate on this shoot; their style is beautiful, precise and unique. We knew we wanted to do something romantic and feminine, and after discussing a few options for settings and style, we concluded that a natural, yet beautiful elopement would suit or desires perfectly

When we arrived to scope out the venue, my breath was taken away when I looked over the edge of the rooftop at the vast openness that lay before us. We loved this location because it seemed not to define a specific place, but to let the imagination decide the couple’s elopement destination.

Katie and Taylor brought our vision to life, creating the scene for an intimate and emotional elopement. I was honored when other amazing vendors came on board to help execute this shoot. From the beautiful furniture by Mood Party Rentals to the gorgeous invitations by Marisa Woolever, this shoot became an inspiring collaboration and was a joy to photograph!

Ever Something ….We started with the simplicity of overflowing eucalyptus and interesting stones. Paired with the white sweet peas and lavender the Eucalyptus created a natural theme to our table-scape. The linen runner was used to soften the bold look of the farmhouse table. We used textured plates with a polka dot napkin, mismatched silverware, and stunning glassware. The bridal bouquet was wild and unruly featuring a large airplant, anemones, dahlias, ranunculus, sweet peas, and sprigs of lavender tied together with velvet ribbon. The dress was the perfect color and texture next to her flowers and bold necklace. The dessert table made an elegant statement next to the simple concrete surrounding which held a variety of desserts such as berry pie, cream puffs, and cupcakes. We used glass bottles of all sizes holding single stems, a large potted succulent, and a glass box of stones to style. All of these elements combined created such a soft and elegant gathering for the bride and groom and their close friends.

Black + Gold Artwork Inspired Wedding Details

Simply put, if it’s gilded, I love it. And if it’s from Lindsay Letters? I have to have it. Her gorgeous lettering and prints always put a smile on my face. So when Gibson Events sent over this shoot inspired by her artwork, I immediately fell in love. From gold leaf treats to clean lines mixed with organic florals from Poppy Lane Design, it’s modern wedding goodness with a twist of chic. Head over to the gallery from Holli B Photography to see it all!

From Gibson Events… It’s amazing what a splash of gold metallic can do. Leave it to Lindsay Letters to find a way to make simplicity striking in her new collection of black and white prints and canvases, all readily available and freshly added to her online boutique this month. I don’t know about you, but there’s something so chic about infusing a mixture of clean lines and eclectic unpredictability, and that’s exactly what we set out to create for this shoot.

Inspired by young love, sweet romance, and the untraditional, we dreamt up a simple reception centered around the bride and groom, leaving room to focus on what matters most: their love for one another. And of course, Lindsay’s stunning artwork. Her pieces were undoubtedly the star of the show and we had such a wonderful time constructing a composited collection of prettiness for our bookshelf backdrop. We’ve put together a straightforward how-to for creating a similarly effortless look in your own home, and now all that’s left is for you to head over to Lindsay’s shop to purchase a few things for yourself.

Other additional elements for the day included fondue for two (complete with edible gold leaf treats), floral clad ladders, and a gallery wall set up by the bride herself, in a tulle skirt no less. We kept the color scheme light and natural, and chose to dress our couple in outfits that left room for the background to truly shine. Our bride wore a short, sheer white dress complete with crocodile embossed booties that had us swooning from the second we laid eyes on them (Rag + Bone can do no wrong in our books). Our groom was dashing in his linen jeans and knit waistcoat, achieving a perfected look of effortless cool.

Designing Your Bookshelves: A How To For The Distinguished Decorator

1. Pick a starting point. a piece you love, and go from there. big or small, this is the piece that holds it all together. From this comes your color scheme, mood, and feel.

2. Multiples. Adding multiples of items (in this case, glasses and cake stands) brings unity to keep from looking disheveled and unintentional.

3. Alternate useful things and pretty things. The shelf should serve as both a space for lovely things as well as a functional space to hold things you love and use.

4. Include items with meaning. Family photo, a cool souvenir from a past trip. Things that bring back good memories and make you happy.

5. Add little bits of life. Including flowers, air plants, and succulents is beautiful for your eye AND for the air.
