Soft in nature, this Parisian wedding inspiration from the planners at Fête is the epitome of an elegant affair, captured in bright editorial scenes around The Baumberhof by the ever-so-talented Amanda Watson PhotographyDespite the venue’s Bavarian elements, a provincial color palette of lavender and sage brings us to the French countryside in the middle of Oklahoma. Delicate romance plays across a waterside tablescape right on a private dock, and pastel taper candles, opulent crystal, fine china and soft mauve linens from Marianne’s Rentals set the mood for an elegant al fresco affair. Floral design from XO by Haleigh Kenney brought the romance with budding blooms and big, baby pink roses that alike make for the sweetest centerpieces, combining their whimsy with the natural rustic feel of the scenery. This outdoor celebration is perfectly juxtaposed with a soft, pastel color palette, elegant furnishings and a royal-like bridal ensemble. A strapless ballgown from J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon is accented by the sweetest floral appliqué detailing as well as an ornate bridal tiara which only adds to the air of elegance in this styled shoot. The crown, fit for a queen, is secured by a timeless and elegant updo created by Profile Beauty Nook while Carolyn F. Beauty enhanced her already-gorgeous natural features with a rose gold eye and coordinating glossy lip. Talk about a killer bridal beauty look! We think her ritzy engagement ring from Naifeh Fine Jewelry is the cherry on top of it all. A khaki linen suit from EVERYMAN gives our groom an organic look and one we think would drop jaws in any decade! Setting the mood and carrying it out through paperie was The Letter Box, whose beautiful vow books, hand-lettering and even personalized champagne bottle with details of the couple’s wedding on it are all so artisanal and proper. Plentiful sweets make for a successful wedding, and we love the range Amy Cakes shows off with this delectable trio – a tower of donut holes, a floral cake covered in amazingly realistic detail, and a blue marble cake you may mistake for stone. The opportunities are truly endless when vendors as creative as these come together. Read on for a note from the planners at Fête about the vision and design behind this soft, Parisian wedding inspiration or watch the day through a different view – as captured on film by Transform Visuals. Cheers!

From the planners, Tara Towns, Haleigh Kenney and Alex Berry of Fête: “We wanted to create a beautiful and elegant ceremony backdrop for our Parisian-inspired fête. We were inspired by colors that aren’t normally used, such as the lavender and sage elements we brought in. Creating unique and one-of-a-kind color palettes is our specialty, and we take pride in never duplicating a design.”

We’re so incredibly excited to reveal this year’s fashion editorial, Modern March: the tale of a modern day bride with an ode to the past. Our unbeatable team of Oklahoma wedding vendors created a scene that Jo March herself would have wanted to exchange vows amidst. With blooming, over-the-top floral installations from Poppy Lane Design at every turn and stunning imagery from Tammy Odell Photography, it’s hard not to fall in love with each vignette as this romantic gallery unfolds. What better venue to host our period-drama-worthy shoot than the historic Tulsa Garden Center? The outdoor landscaping is ideal for any garden-lover with stone pathways, trickling creeks and Oklahoma forestry. The on-property mansion features timeless architecture in every light-flooded room. Our model bride was positively glowing in each gown from some of the finest bridal boutiques and custom designers in Oklahoma. The individual gown styles may vary, but they each carry the same timeless, feminine theme. Adorned in gems from one of our favorite local jewelers, Naifeh Fine Jewelry, she was certainly fit to “make her own way in this world.” Soft, tousled hairstyles with loose tendrils and incredible makeup artistry have our jaws on the floor! Tease to Please Hair and Makeup’s feminine hairstyles with MLB Artistry’s romantic makeup was an expert pairing that became the cherry on top of each bridal look. The oh-so-sweet picnic treats were the most delicious addition to our photoshoot – Sweet Devotion Cakery creates exquisite cakes, cookies and pastries that are worthy of a photoshoot of their own! It feels like we’ve been waiting our whole lives to share this beautiful day with you, so without further adieu, we present the full gallery for our Modern March fashion editorial below! If you’d like to see even more details, be sure to take a peek at Transform Visual’s cinematic take on the day, plus listen to our Modern March Spotify playlist shared below!

The Unveiling of Our New Spring/Summer 2021 Cover!

What better time to release a new issue than at the top of the New Year?! We’ve been dying to share every bit of wedding inspiration and information hidden inside the pages of the new issue alongside the shiny new Spring/Summer 2021 cover! Without further adieu, we’d like to introduce you to the team behind this oh-so-inviting cover image from our Modern March fashion editorial, captured by Tammy Odell Photography! The setting at Tulsa Garden Center‘s Mansion at Woodward Park was picture perfect for our Little Women inspired fashion shoot, and the garden’s cobblestone steps look as if they’ve jumped from the novel’s pages themselves thanks to the hundreds of blue and white delphinium stems arranged by Poppy Lane Design lining the stairway. The model bride’s exquisite Justin Alexander Signature lace fit-and-flare Tansy gown from Ellis Bridal features a Venice lace off-the-shoulder neckline, complemented by her BHLDN Gala back necklace of light blue stones. Naifeh Fine Jewelry added a bit more modernity to her look with surprise diamond solitaire earrings with gold fringe on the backs juxtaposed against her classic halo-circled oval-cut diamond ring with diamond lined double band – both total wow accessories. Her look was completed with a low tousled bun with a middle part and wispy face framing pieces thanks to Tease to Please Hair and Makeup, while her dewy, luminous skin, amplified by a rose-flushed cheek and lip for a monochromatic look, and bronzer-defined eyes were expertly applied by MLB Artistry. Can you believe this is just one of many stylish and feminine looks from the editorial?!

Congrats to Tammy Odell for capturing her second Brides of Oklahoma cover (see her first here)! Stay tuned for the complete Modern March editorial reveal tomorrow to see more gorgeous gowns from our local bridal boutiques and custom gown designers, a confectionary spread from Sweet Devotion Cakery and the can’t-miss behind the scenes video captured by Transform Visuals. And be sure to pre-order your copy of the SS21 issue to see it in print for yourself. Cheers!

Programs

Whether you choose to have individual programs printed, or a large sign with all the details for guests to read as they enter, wedding ceremony programs are a wonderful way to share all sorts of details. Keep it simple with just the order of events, add pizazz with an illustration or make it fun with a thank you note or even fun facts about your bridal party!

Place Cards

Place cards go hand-in-hand with your seating chart, denoting exactly where at the table each guest should sit and welcoming that person to their seat. A hand-calligraphed place card adds a touch of class!

Escort Cards

What’s the difference between place cards and escort cards? While place cards are found on the tables, escort cards are another kind of seating chart where guests find their name and pick up their own place card from the wall (to then escort them to their table). We love both options!

Koozies

To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold! Koozies put the fun in functionality, and your guests will appreciate both! An opportunity to carry on your wedding theme, emblem or monogram, koozies are one place where really anything goes, even if your event is more formal.

Ring Bearer + Flower Girl Signs

Watching the ring bearer and flower girl walk down the aisle is always an aww-inducing moment. Bring a little laughter to this moment with a cheeky sign for the little ones to carry – as seen in this example, it can still be beautiful and elegant!

 

Other Day-Of Wedding Essentials and Finishing Touches

Signage and stationery (more than just the invitation – anything involving words on display!) are often-overlooked but oh-so-important wedding day essentials and contribute to the overall hospitality your guests feel as part of your big day. It’s the little things that make an impression! Overwhelmed by the options and not sure exactly what you’ll need? Reach out to a professional Oklahoma calligrapher to assist and make the details of your dreams come true. Cheers!
