Celebrate the special women in your wedding in style! In this modern bridal brunch editorial shoot, Oklahoma wedding planner Back Meadow Events is showing us how you can bring the wow factor to your luncheon. Kicking the styled shower off, the model bride was dressed in a delicate halter wedding gown from The Bridal Boutique and her maids wore mix-n-match green dresses from Prim, all while AnnElyse Salon and Spa set to working glamming the girls in pristine hair and makeup. The statement of the soiree is definitely the breakfast bar from Mood Party Rentals, adorned with a balloon garland installation and topped with an array of delicious brunch bites from Abbey Road Catering. Beyond the brunch bar, Mishelle Handy Cakes created a collection of modern cake designs featuring a gold, black and white color palette and marble details. Epic florals by Poppy Lane Design were seen throughout, from the pampas grass entry, complete with welcome signage by Hazel Paper Co., to the tablescape’s hanging floral wreaths and over-grown organic white centerpiece. This sweet soirée full of even sweeter decor was all captured by the fab Sarah Libby Photography.

Don’t settle for drab when you can have a fab modern bridal brunch like this one! Take a cue, and get even more inspiration from the mag’s all-new content, found here!

From the planner, Abby Walker of Back Meadow Events: “Like many wedding customs, the bridal brunch (also known as the ‘bridesmaids luncheon’) can be a bit drab and traditional. I wanted to show another side of this fun tradition – that it can feel bright and fresh and new all at the same time; a bride can host it herself for her ladies, it doesn’t have be given to her by a relative or family friend. So the colors of black, white and green (a more modern palette), along with the balloons, made the whole experience feel fun, fresh and new, which is exactly what I was going for!”

Are you searching for a modern feel for your wedding? Look no further! Today’s Modernity Abloom altar scene, styled by the talented duo behind Ever Something and captured by Modern Love Photography, is packed with contemporary inspo, and we are living for this wow-worthy setup! The Mayo Hotel‘s all-white art deco style ballroom was filled with an ombré effect of red and blush blooms, modern elements and the most stunning natural light. Acrylic chiavari chairs lined the aisle along with floor-lined greenery arrangements. Accenting the rich ruby blooms with hints of light pink, Celeste Paper Co.‘s blush-toned invitation suite was finished with a black bow giving a refined palette. Choosing the right dress to fit this fresh scene is a must, and this show-stopper of a gown from Chantilly Couture featuring an open back and illusion lace bodice is the perfect style for this contemporary look. Achieving a beauty look that feels effortless yet fashionable, Hannah Miller Hair and Makeup Artistry continues to amaze us with this simply timeless bridal glow and twisted updo she created for the model bride. Take a cue from this dramatic altar-scape and wow your guests with a bold palette and modernity abloom!

From the planners, Katie Carpenter and Taylor Fowler of Ever Something: “We wanted to create a ceremony space that allowed the flowers to be center stage and show how you can put a modern spin on something that might otherwise feel outdated…an arch. The Mayo was the best backdrop for the shoot because of the light, architecture and inherent beauty of the space. We also wanted a show-stopper dress and Chantilly Couture didn’t disappoint. Not to mention our stunning model, Aubree, who is a former bride of ours. The whole shoot came together in a beautiful and simple way; we were thrilled with it!”

We began our fabulous two-day celebration with a lovely brunch with our Oklahoma City partners at Gaillardia Country Club. The amazing chef’s at Gaillardia Country Club had us in awe of their delicious brunch food! The mini chicken and waffles were to-die-for, along with the much needed mimosa and Bloody Mary bar and doughnuts at your beck and call. This lovely ballroom space was decorated with beautifully arranged floral centerpieces by Bayly Blooms and matching luxe velvet linens from Mood Party Rentals, all captured by Andi Bravo Photography.

Day two was so fun getting to celebrate with our Tulsa area partners! We had tons of delicious options when it came to brunch food, provided by the hosting venue’s catering team at The Patriot Golf Club. Just look at the DIY mimosa station! Not only was the food out of this world, but their venue is for sure a show-stopper! Beautiful floral arrangements by The Flower Shop Pryor adorned the tables and the mantle, and Party Pro Rents provided pretty pink linens and napkins for the tables. Thanks to Andi Bravo Photography for capturing this beauty of a day!

Cheers to the new Spring/Summer 2019 issue! Haven’t gotten your copy yet? Order it here!
