There is so much romance and vivid floral goodness in this colorful winter wedding planned by Embellished Weddings! Faith and Creed’s story began when they first met in sixth grade at Christian Heritage Academy where they went to school together until their high school graduation in 2015. Though they never dated, the pair were good friends and even attended their junior and senior banquets together, which were held in The Skirvin Hilton‘s Grand Ballroom – little did they know, they would get married in that same room almost five years later! The two went their separate ways at first. Faith went to the University of Oklahoma and Creed headed off for college in Mississippi, but eventually during their senior year of college, they reconnected. They began dating long-distance, and then got engaged after their graduations in May.
To kick off their colorful winter wedding weekend, Faith and Creed celebrated with friends and family through a rehearsal dinner and luxe accommodations offered by The Skirvin Hilton so you can reduce the stress of traveling, party on-site all night and enjoy their delicious venue catering, making this celebration a nearly all-inclusive affair. Mood Party Rentals supplies elegant gold accents like the chiavari ceremony and reception seating as well as clean, stately linens for every tablescape. Romance is in the air throughout every decorated scene, but the real punch in this wedding comes from its flowers. A fun take on winter wedding florals, this bright and cheery floral design from XO by Haleigh Kenney includes so many incredible blooms in a range of sweet berry tones to light peach and pale yellow stems – not to mention a staircase installation that left so many attendees speechless. Keeping with the whimsical floral trend, Faith looks absolutely radiant in her long-sleeved Willowby by Watters gown from Bella Rose Bridal – Edmond as well as a dreamy veil that seems to go on for miles. A decadent six-tiered design from Mishelle Handy Cakes is the perfect sweet to end the night with, and its alternating ribbed and smooth layers pair perfectly with the vivid florals that accent the rest of their colorful winter wedding. Read on for a note from the bride about one of her most favorite wedding vendors and what made them so special. Cheers to the Hendricksons!
From the bride: “My favorite wedding vendor was XO by Haleigh Kenney. Haleigh brought my colorful winter floral vision to life and it was better than I ever could have imagined! I knew I wanted to incorporate colorful florals, but I had a difficult time finding inspiration pictures from winter weddings that captured my vision. I took my ideas to Haleigh and told her that I trusted her completely and to design what she thought was best. Haleigh’s design on the Grand Ballroom Staircase was a showstopper and was my favorite detail from the wedding.”
