  • Wedding Wednesday ~ White on White

    all white wedding design 

    Last Friday, we showed a preview of this amazing shoot which we were so happy to be a part of.  While we're always a big fan of color, this all white palette is pure perfection.  When only one color is used texture becomes a crucial element.  Our millwork panels, tufted seating, and flower wall filled the void and added just the right amount of contrast to this singular white motif.  

    You can see more photos in the Brides of Oklahoma Magazine and we must give a big thank you to all of the amazing vendors who helped create this modern and fresh look!

  • 3 Ways I Practice what I Preach ~

     

    3 Ways I Practice what I Preach as an Event Designer:

    As an event professional, people look to me to be their guide on the planning journey. I really try to put them on a path that leads to a party with fresh ideas and an alternate perception for their guests.

    1 – Gather Inspiration.

    Some days, my life revolves around logistics, but others…are pure inspiration! It might be something as simple as the glorious Oklahoma sunset or as exciting as a fashion runway in Paris, but no matter what is inspiring to me at the moment, I’m constantly in search of imagery that will translate into my everyday life.

    2 – Work Hard, Play Hard!

    I’m a true believer in hard work; it is how my parents raised me. If you’re truly motivated to have an event that goes off flawless, you have to put in plenty of prep time to make sure that you have every detail lined up prior to the day of the event. Even at parties I’m hosting in my home, I keep a detailed list of everything I want to accomplish…and I work hard to make sure everything is fully executed! Then, I kick back, relax and enjoy the party!

    3 – Dream Big!

    There is no limit to the creative level you can take your event to. I like to imagine the most out of this world concepts, that might not even be realistic at the moment. Then I challenge myself to make it into a process that is achievable. In my spare time, I’m designing a new home that my husband and I will break ground on later this year (Yes, I am doing this in our busy season…and yes, I am crazy!). I’ve thrown some crazy, off-the-wall ideas out there, and now we’re pairing those down to figure out what works within our budget and where we can splurge for some of those eccentric ideas! Never let someone shoot down your ideas too early in the process…live a little!

  • Be an It-Girl on your wedding day

     

    How to have the Wedding of an It-Girl

    Around here, we love weddings. We also love women who have a fearless and impeccable sense of style– also known as It Girls. When those two things mix…it’s a match made in wedding heaven.  Below are some tips on how to achieve an it-girl wedding – and have a blast while doing it.

    Get. Off. Pinterest.

    Seriously. Do it now. Pinterest should be the antonym to original in the dictionary. Think about it – if it’s popular on Pinterest, everyone is pinning it, and therefore everyone is doing it.  The fastest way to outdate your wedding is to style it off of Pinterest. Trust me on this. Just step away from the Wedding Board.

    Watch Haute Couture Fashion Shows.

    Now this, ladies…THIS is where you should be finding your inspiration. If you want to be ahead of the trends and have a one-of-a-kind wedding, start by looking to the high-fashion designers who are setting the trends for the season. Yes, these fashions are often over-the-top, but, if you can let your imagination run wild for a bit, the amount of inspiration available to you during these ten minute long designer dreams is incredible. Fashion isn’t just about the clothes we wear, and an it-girl takes that to heart.  Fashion translates into every aspect of our lives. Colors, textures, embellishments, sights, sounds…watch and you’ll be amazed.

    Figure out your Aesthetic…and Stick to It.

    What I mean is, pick a style direction and go with it. Figure out what you want your wedding to look like and what it is going to take to get it there. Don’t try to mix a million trends or styles together and expect a great outcome. Sometimes, less is more. Look at your personal style and think about the design you envision – if you’re rustic, classic, retro, glam, modern, bohemian…hone in on it. You will be so much happier with the result.

    Hire a Stylist.

    This is just the best tip I can give if you want your wedding to be unique and a true image of who you are. A stylist pinpoints your style and aesthetic, bringing your ideas to life.  She gently nudges you towards ideas that compliment your style, and helps eliminate the ones clouding the big picture. She does not create your style, she perfects it.  It-girls have great taste naturally, and they know when they need a helping hand. Hire a stylist. It will result in an enjoyable (and beautiful) wedding experience.

  • Engagements ~ take your time

      

    My advice – take your time.

    You only get to plan your wedding once! Don’t try to pack all the preparation into a couple of months. Giving yourself time to game plan really helps keep stress level down. Planning over a longer period of time also helps secure availability of the venue, photographer, stylist etc. that you desire to work with.

    After all, the process leading up to your wedding should be a fun time – not a stressful one!
