In the most elegant of evenings, we can’t get enough of childhood sweethearts Olivia and Brandon’s tradition-filled, glittering garden-inspired wedding! Aubrey Marie Photography perfectly captured the joyous ambiance of the long-anticipated matrimony, where friends and family from every stage of the couple’s story came together to celebrate! The Colcord Hotel hosted out-of-town guests who travelled to join in the special evening. The reception was filled with dreamy decor from Marianne’s Rentals, in everything from the luxe gold table settings to the sequin overlay table to display the cake. A fixture on its own, Amy Cakes created a beautiful floral-covered, four-hexagonal tiered wedding cake for the couple and their guests to enjoy! Coordinating florals from Tony Foss Flowers were used in table arrangements and varying displays, filled to the brim with ruby red, cream and pale pink blooms. The couple’s wedding was truly a dream brought to life! See the complete Vows that Wow editorial in print on pages 80-85 of the 10th Anniversary issue! Cheers!

Andi Bravo Photography perfectly captured the love between soon-to-be wedded couple Mackenzie and Andrew in this adorable Oklahoma engagement shoot. With a mix of backdrops from the buildings of downtown Tulsa to the charming woodsy setting, the happy couple is glowing from every angle.

Mackenzie and Andrew met at the University of Oklahoma during a campus wide community service day called Big Event. Although his fraternity and her sorority were paired together, they were not initially in the same small groups. In a twist of fate, they both got lost from their original groups and ended up at the same site on Lake Hefner. It was truly meant to be!

Andrew proposed to Mackenzie on the beach in her home state of California. Mackenzie was so surprised and overjoyed that she hardly remembers what he said during the proposal! The couple will tie the knot in June at Holy Family Cathedral with a reception to follow at Spain Ranch. Mackenzie can’t wait to continue her wedding planning journey and marry the man of her dreams! Enjoy!

Lindsay Gibson of Gibson Events‘ vision for this slice of Italy is a true dream! With such an incredible team to bring this to life, we could look at this dreamy inspiration all day! Josh McCullock Photography shot the scenes at this intimate, Italian-inspired chapel, and Pen Weddings caught some incredible behind the scenes footage. Dressed in a gown from Prescott Bridal, the model’s look was completed by hair and makeup from Chelsey Ann Artistry and jewels from Naifeh Fine Jewelry. Abbey Road Catering created the incredible spread of Italian dishes, from the cheese boards and espresso bar to the mussels-topped pasta. Brown Egg Bakery was also inspired by the Tuscan flair and created the sweetest gelato cones for dessert. The scene wouldn’t be complete without the incredible florals from Poppy Lane Design, who added a romantic and organic flair to the day with greenery and spring-hued blooms. Marianne’s Rentals Special Event Solutions set the scene providing the table, chairs, flatware, stemware and place settings. The custom calligraphy wedding invitation suite designed by Rachel Kathryn Designs was the finishing touch to this darling Italian fete. With so many wonderful Oklahoma wedding pros involved in this truly al fresco vision, it’s no wonder it was such a beauty! Enjoy!
