Erin Ames and Attila Balazs Natural Jewel Toned Oklahoma Wedding by Emerson Events
Erin and Attila met when Erin was singing with her band, Them Hounds, at their album release party. Attila happened to be there filming the show. A few weeks later, Attila joined them on tour, and the rest is history!
When Erin visited Attila in New Orleans while he was shooting a documentary, he knew it would be the perfect time to propose. They went out to the beach on the gulf of Mississippi, and Attila popped the question. Erin, of course, said yes!
Erin and Attila’s artsy and classic wedding consisted of a color palette of gold, sea foam green and burgundy, which was inspired by jewel tones and nature. The bride was escorted down the aisle by her mother and carried her father’s pocket watch and handkerchief on her bouquet who recently passed away. Erin looked radiant in her Maggie Sottero champagne silk gown with short sleeves, a fitted bodice with delicate beading, a plunging neckline and flowing skirt. She complemented the look with handmade topaz earrings. The couple incorporated vows from different parts of their world in their simple ceremony.
At their reception, Erin and Attila served delicious farm-to-table finger foods for their guests. The menu included fresh fruit, grilled fresh vegetables, gourmet cheese boards, fried chicken, beef brisket sliders, and homemade mac and cheese. For dessert, Twisted Sisters created a three-tier Neapolitan naked cake with light buttercream frosting. Flavors in the cake consisted of chocolate, berry and vanilla. The groom’s cake was a lavender vanilla crumb cake.
The bride and groom danced to “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros for their first dance. The most memorable moment for the couple was at the end of the evening when all of their guests danced with LED hoops! Their live band, Smooch, kept the dance floor packed all night long.
Erin and Attila currently reside in Oklahoma City, where Erin works as a barber, makeup artist and performer, and Attila works as a director, cinematographer and actor.
