An Intimate Chapel Ceremony Followed by Speakeasy Style Reception
by Brides of Oklahoma August 25
Intimate ceremonies can still lead to larger, fun-filled celebrations afterward, and this chapel ceremony followed by a speakeasy style reception captured by KGC Photography does just that! Blaire and Nic started off with accommodations at the Renaissance Waterford Oklahoma City Hotel before smooth-sailing into their wedding weekend. They tied the knot with immediate family and full Catholic mass, had a private family lunch, then prepared for their evening, speakeasy-style cocktail hour and reception! Mood lighting and gorgeous pieces from Marianne’s Rentals as well as Mood Party Rentals worked to create a wedding space with the vibe of a vintage cigar lounge, showcasing heavy wood furniture and rich velvet couches. Their tented reception featured elegant hanging floral installations designed by The Fleuriste, low profile candles and table centerpieces to feel like you were at the newlyweds’ home for a luxe, private dinner party. Blaire looked like an absolute dream in her long-sleeved gown from Bella Rose Bridal featuring the most incredible illusion open-back while her bridesmaid coordinated perfectly with a gown from Bella Bridesmaids. Blaire and Nic’s guests never had a dull moment with Box Talent‘s professionals on the scene, and their DJ had the dance floor jumping all night long! Read on to hear from the bride about some of her most favorite wedding details found in this gorgeous wedding and its speakeasy style reception. Cheers to Blaire and Nic!

From the bride: “Our ceremony was immediate family only. It was incredibly intimate, private and so special. After the ceremony, we had a private family lunch with champagne, a cheese board and chips and dip (my favorite)! Our other guests arrived for a cocktail hour, which we designed to be like a cigar lounge/speakeasy with heavy wood furniture and rich velvet couches. Then we moved into the tent that had gorgeous hanging flowers, low profile candles and table floral arrangements to feel like you were at our home for an intimate private dinner.”
