Sparkling Wedding at the Skirvin | Kristen + Aaron

Skirvin Wedding

The Skirvin Hilton was sparkling for Kristen & Aaron’s OKC Wedding. The ballroom was elegantly dressed in black, red along with some glamorous sparkle from Marianne’s Rentals for Special Events and sweet florals from Cole Dewey Designs. Mishelle Handy Cakes added to the elegance and bling with this exquisite wedding cake. Guests also enjoyed taking home a some sweet treats from 42nd Street Candy Co’s Candy Buffet.

Skirvin Hilton Wedding Reception

Kristen has an infectious smile and she was so happy to be marrying the love of her life. Aaron’s fraternity brothers made sure he got to do some crowd surfing at the reception. Dad’s toast was a highlight for all and we share a portion in this highlight. The entrance of the Bridal Party into the reception is a MUST SEE and was a crowd cheering moment during the Wedding Day Edit shown at the reception. All in all it was a great wedding we enjoyed capturing.

Wedding Video Invitation | Matt + Anna

Well, our son is tying the knot and we couldn’t be happier as we are gaining a wonderful daughter, Anna. We were excited when Anna said she was up for a wedding video invitation to invite guests to their wedding. Their guests have been a bit surprised receiving a DVD in their mailboxes rather than a traditional wedding invitation. We had a good time putting this one together as Matthew is quite the ham for the camera. We might be missing a few of his motor vehicles he regularly rides but not many. Click play to take a peek at their wedding “video” invitation.

We can now say, we have been the Bride, the Groom, Parents of the Bride and now Parents of the Groom! We can truly relate to our clients and all that goes into the wedding planning experience. It will be two married and one to go for our family! Mark jokingly told Megan we are on a three year plan and not to make any marriage plans until 2016. We will let you know how that goes.


2013 Linen Runway Show


Oh the fun things we get to do. Three years ago Marianne’s Rentals for Special Events, an OKC Party Rental company, came up with this clever idea for showcasing their latest table linens. Turn them into evening gowns and showcase them in a live runway show. There is one caveat, the gowns are not sown. They are pinned, tucked, & wrapped onto the runway models. It truly is an inspiration in color and texture!

Each year the Linen Runway Show has continued to grow and become quite the event. This year was no exception with Marianne’s Tabletops displayed in the cocktail area with beautiful florals from The Fleuriste, lighting from Innovative Event Solutions, paper from Paper8, coordination from OKC Perfect Wedding Guide, cupcakes from Gigi’s Cupcakes and h’orderves from Riverwind Hotel & Cassino.

This year the models were pageant winners in both the Miss America, Miss, Teen & Mrs. USA pageants from Oklahoma and four surrounding states. Styling for all the runway models was under the direction of Malorie Avaline Hair & Make Up. Little did these lovely pageant winners know they were competing for the crown of Miss Oklahoma Tabletop! And yes, we had a winner!

Marianne’s Rentals also teamed up with the Oklahoma Children’s Miracle Network Hospital as all the proceeds from the event were donated to this local charity. The absolute highlight of the evening was when each Miracle Child took a walk down the runway escorted by one of the pageant winners. To see the joy and excitement in their faces, moved us to tears.

Be inspired for your next event as you click play to preview Marianne’s 2013 collection of specialty linens! Linens so FABULOUS, you’ll want to WEAR them!

Depart In Style on Your Wedding Day

Wondering on how to depart your wedding? We thought we would share a few of our favorite past wedding exits.

An idea we often toss out for Brides to consider is having a grand departure following your ceremony at the church. It can make for great photos & video on your wedding day with your picturesque church as a backdrop. It also allows everyone who attends to your wedding to participate in your departure as you run through the crowd.

Very often, your car can circle around the block as guests depart for the reception and you can make your way back to the church to finish out the photos.

A limousine, classic car… For all our Oklahoma City Brides check out King’s Limousine. If you are in for having a classic car, they have the beautiful vintage white Jaguar (one of our favorites). They also have some great Limousine options as well. We have rented the Mercedes Limo bus decked with the big flat screen TV, great for transporting your Bridal Party. We love the fact that you can always count on them to be there with professional drivers ready to take you safely to your destination.

Wedding Idea with Vinyl Records

We recently came across a fun wedding idea at Megann & Troy’s Oklahoma City wedding. They are big music lovers, and wanted to incorporate that into their wedding day. So they put their engagement photos on the center of vinyl records and placed them on the guest book table with some gold & silver pens for guest to write their best wishes. What a clever wedding idea and oh so fun too. Guests had a great time giving their best wishes to the Bride & Groom.

After the wedding Megann & Troy plan to frame the vinyl records to display them in their home as a special remembrance of their wedding day. Hats off to Megann & Troy for this cool wedding idea. Check back tomorrow as we share their wedding highlight.
