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.

Elegant and Colorful Wedding in Oklahoma City

Gibson Events never ceases to impress us. We see a lot of color schemes here, but the pops of crimson and green against the subdue blush tones is a new one, and we love it! The arrangements from Poppy Lane are also brilliant and give the overall event a feeling of jubilant loveliness (you can see what I mean in the full gallery). So sit back and enjoy Aaron Snow‘s beautiful photos from the day.

From Poppy Lane DesignOur favorite details are Katie’s blush wedding gown, an 1800′s original pine table for the altar table, and an intimate wedding of 75 guests, century-old landmark for the venue.

The tones were Indian summer inspired… Ivory, blush and light peach with a pop of crimson and greenery.

Rustic ballroom …a primitive farm table with stone urns inside a luxe downtown Oklahoma City landmark, antique mercury vases + gold candelabras with moss spheres and eucalyptus. Landon is a firefighter in Oklahoma City and the bride surprised him with this customized groom’s cake. Katie had a vision to bring new classics into the traditional space. The Venetian ballroom is the original ballroom of the 100 year old hotel. The couple carved aside a few short minutes to enjoy dinner together before heading into the reception… A really intimate detail that allows you special time with your new husband.

Oklahoma Winter Wedding Inspiration

Just when I think spring can’t come soon enough, I see a shoot like this one from Des Marie Photography and find myself raising a glass to all things winter yet again. It’s literally overflowing with all the little things I adore about the coldest season and topped off with some amazing blooms by Poppy Lane Design. It’s cozy, warm and super stylish – and you can cuddle up with every gorgeous image right here.

From Des Marie PhotographyI am seriously jumping out of my seat from excitement that I’m sharing this gorgeous styled shoot with you all! I had a vision of producing a wedding with mostly neutral color decor but pops of colors from the holiday season without screaming CHRISTMAS. I went with a few current fashions trends to make this shoot stand out. You will see that the bride is not wearing a white or ivory dress but a stunning gold dress. Lumberjack chic was the inspiration for the groom’s plaid shirt with a hunter green bow tie & navy blue suspenders. We carefully chose Express Clydesdale’s barn as our venue. Whenever I think of winter and the Christmas season I think of the ever so beautiful Clydesdale horses. I reached out to local vendors to make my vision come to life. I am so pleased to submit one of my dream shoots to such an amazing wedding blog. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
