  • Annie Oakley Society Luncheon ~

     

     

     

       

     

    Several weeks ago we were honored to style the Annie Oakley Society luncheon at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.  This year's awards went to U.S. Navy Admiral Michelle Howard as well as Josephine "Jose" Freede.  These women embody the pioneer spirit that Annie Oakley represented and we were so happy to be a part of it.

    We met with Morgan, Omar and the Byram family last August, and immediately fell in love with this fun and wonderful crew.  Morgan graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and fashion and design play a huge roll in her life.  She is the definition of an ‘it girl,’ and we were honored to help make Morgan’s dream of modern elegance a reality.  Every detail and wish was pored over to ensure that the big day would be nothing short of spectacular.  After months of planning and preparation, the day finally came when the couple would say “I do.”

    Morgan and Omar were married on August 1, 2015 at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. The pair arrived at the Club for a day of preparation with their wedding parties.  As the girls beautified, the boys relaxed and helped calm Omar’s nerves.  Before the ceremony, Omar and Morgan shared a special moment together.  The groom’s breath was taken away at the sight of his beautiful bride, and the couple shared personal notes with each other to prepare their hearts and minds for the special evening ahead of them.  Both the happy couple and their families were then treated to a private viewing of the ceremony and reception space prior to guests arrival, and were stunned by the design and vision produced by Eventures for their special day.  Some family members were even brought to tears by the beauty of the finished creation.

    Four hundred and fifty guests were ushered down a secret hallway of chiffons taking them from the front of the Club to the ceremony tent on the back lawn.  They witnessed the couple’s union in a breathtaking, fully draped tent dripping in ethereal orchids and greenery created by The Fleuriste.  Wearing a truly stunning Jenny Packham Dress and with crystal bodice embellishments and a dramatic open back, Morgan walked down the white carpeted aisle with her father to the song “A Thousand Years.” With friends and family there to witness, they said their vows in front of a custom backdrop of white tufted velvet that ran the length of the tent. After sealing their promise with a kiss, the celebration began.

    Guests were welcomed back into the Country Club for cocktails, where Harry’s Bar was transformed with white carpet, floor to ceiling white draping and a towering life-sized tree with cascading branches and ribbons, each holding escort cards with gold calligraphy on Galax leaves.  “Oohs” and “ahhs” were heard as guests continued to venture into the Great Hall where they were met with the sweet melody of a grand piano set in front of a dramatically draped stage.  Mirrored elements in the bars, stage and custom-built walls reflected from floor to ceiling, all architecturally designed and inspired by the Bride’s love for art and fashion.

    After cocktails, guests spilled into the adjoining rooms for dinner.  The dining room was breathtakingly stunning.  Eventures elegantly transformed the Country Club with slate-gray velvet draping, while oversized 10’ golden frames featuring stylish floral sculptures lined the walls.  The head table was a massive 40’ long glass top table supported by dreamlike gold tree stumps.  Floating over the head table was a gravity defying floral design created with orchids and mixed greenery that truly wowed everyone who laid eyes on it.  Each of the guest tables glowed with shimmering candles, white silk linens and elegant groupings of white floral with mixed metal Chameleon Chairs.  Amy Cullifer with Amy Cakes created the six-tier wedding cake with gold and cream glistening spheres placed between the layers, and it sat upon a glass and gold tree stump table to reflect the incredible design of the head table.  The room had never looked like this before, and guests felt as though they had been transported to another venue for the special occasion.

    After a fine dinner prepared by the Country Club’s professional chefs, the bride and her father amazed everyone with a secretly choreographed dance to “Brick House” which literally, brought the house down!  The party continued and the dance floor was packed as soon as The SoulSations took the stage, set beneath a crystal chandelier that glistened in front of volumes of white chiffons. Monogramed hats, glow sticks and sunglasses were distributed to the guests, a surprise everyone loved!  The amazing Brittany Stover Photography captured every incredible moment that evening and documented a night that the couple, their families and their guests would always remember.

    Though no one wanted the night to end, it came time for the bride and groom to make their departure. Wearing huge smiles and hats adorned with the couple’s initial, they walked through a cloud of confetti and climbed into a vintage Rolls Royce convertible as guests waved goodbye.  It had been the perfect day, one that Morgan would ask her dad (half jokingly) if they could recreate all over again.

  • Under the Big Top ~

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

      

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Transforming a venue is probably one of our favorite parts of the job.

     

    This year’s theme for the Starlight Ball was under the big top.  To create a circus tent indoors we started with the color palette of a classic carnival -- circus tent red, black, and white.  We then added oversized red draping to the entrance and plenty of smaller tents inside that each housed its own individual game venue.  There was even a fortune teller giving readings!

     

    The night began with rock candy martinis garnished with sticks of the colorful candy.  With drinks in hand, guests were greeted by our very own ring master dressed up in full costume.  Once inside, circus performers dazzled and amazed with hula hoop tricks, stilt walking, and even an aerial acrobatics show.   Afterwards, guests headed to the game tables to test their luck at plinko, bottle toss, mallet smash, spin the wheel and more.  In between the fun, guests had the opportunity to sample the food from the buffets featuring elevated fair classics like gyros, waffle fries, and plenty of candy.  There was even a candy station to allow guests to take home a treat, or two. As the night came to a close guests moved onto the dance floor where the DJ was perched above to keep the party going and everyone dancing.

     

    It was an honor to be a part of this wonderful fundraising event which helped raise donations for the Children's Hospital Foundation.  We hope you enjoyed this look at the party as much as we did creating the event!

  • 3 Ways I Practice what I Preach ~

     

    3 Ways I Practice what I Preach as an Event Designer:

    As an event professional, people look to me to be their guide on the planning journey. I really try to put them on a path that leads to a party with fresh ideas and an alternate perception for their guests.

    1 – Gather Inspiration.

    Some days, my life revolves around logistics, but others…are pure inspiration! It might be something as simple as the glorious Oklahoma sunset or as exciting as a fashion runway in Paris, but no matter what is inspiring to me at the moment, I’m constantly in search of imagery that will translate into my everyday life.

    2 – Work Hard, Play Hard!

    I’m a true believer in hard work; it is how my parents raised me. If you’re truly motivated to have an event that goes off flawless, you have to put in plenty of prep time to make sure that you have every detail lined up prior to the day of the event. Even at parties I’m hosting in my home, I keep a detailed list of everything I want to accomplish…and I work hard to make sure everything is fully executed! Then, I kick back, relax and enjoy the party!

    3 – Dream Big!

    There is no limit to the creative level you can take your event to. I like to imagine the most out of this world concepts, that might not even be realistic at the moment. Then I challenge myself to make it into a process that is achievable. In my spare time, I’m designing a new home that my husband and I will break ground on later this year (Yes, I am doing this in our busy season…and yes, I am crazy!). I’ve thrown some crazy, off-the-wall ideas out there, and now we’re pairing those down to figure out what works within our budget and where we can splurge for some of those eccentric ideas! Never let someone shoot down your ideas too early in the process…live a little!
