The Best of Both Worlds – Reisig-Willett Destination Wedding
by Brides of Oklahoma June 11
Dressed in a stunning cream, mermaid-style, Alvina Valenta dress from J.J. Kelly Bridal, Oklahoma bride Misty Reisig married Justin Willett on the sandy beach in beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico. The bridesmaids wore apple-green, tea-length, tulle Vera Wang dresses also from J.J. Kelly. They carried bouquets of mango calla lilies, yellow kangaroo paws, with pink and green orchids.
The couple celebrated their marriage a week after they returned with a tropical-themed reception for family and friends at Gaillardia Golf and Country Club. Marianne’s Rentals provided lime green and magenta taffeta linens for the tables along with lime green taffeta cushions for the chairs. Tropical arrangements from Morrison Floral Company and custom pink, blue and green sago palm leaves illuminated on the walls reflected the recent beach wedding.
The bride’s cake, crafted by Mishelle Handy Cakes, was a four-tiered chocolate, square cake with lime green polka dots and green orchids with a pink Swarovski “W” on top. The University of Oklahoma themed groom’s cake was a tipsy-curvy, two-tiered white cake with raspberry filling, also by Mishelle Handy Cakes.
The beach wedding and the reception at Gaillardia Country Club was captured by Scott Laske Photography. More details from this wedding can be found on page A94 of the January 2008 issue of The Brides of Oklahoma magazine.
