2013 Linen Runway Show

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.

Coles Garden Wedding Day Edit | Azure + Mark

Cherry-Blossom-Wedding-Arch

Cherry blossoms were in full bloom for Azure & Mark’s spring wedding planned and designed by About Last Night Event Planning. Azure looked stunning as she slipped into her Jenny Packham wedding gown. Mark, with a little nervous anticipation, waited patiently for Azure to exchange wedding gifts just before their ceremony, separated only by a curtain. No peeking during this exchange.

New Leaf Florist did an amazing job on all the florals. The ceremony was simply a masterpiece with cherry blossom archways lining the Regency Room at Coles Garden. It was the perfect setting for making a life long commitment.

Guests were treated to the couple’s favorite drink, ice cold bottles of Dr. Pepper following the ceremony as well as an array of tasty buffet stations from the Catering Connection OKC. The Bride’s cake from Mishelle Handy Cakes took center stage in the ballroom on the dance floor beneath the chandelier. The Groom, an OSU grad was loving his Dr. Pete cake too!

Outdoor Romance | The Wedding Belle

Sharing some elegant wedding decor inspiration from Robyn Martin of The Wedding Belle at Coles Garden for her Brides of Oklahoma photo shoot. Robyn had so many elements to her shoot. From the outdoor ceremony, the charming cakes and catering, to the stunning tablescape Robyn’s flair for design was amazing.

We loved having a REAL Bride on this shoot to model her very own Lazaro wedding gown. She was awesome and looked fabulous! Click play to catch the beauty and romance of this outdoor wedding design!


Robyn gave us a little insight into the thoughts behind her design.

Theme: Outdoor Romance

Style: Traditional with a twist

Colors: Three shades of Blush & Gold

The Lazaro wedding gown inspired the color palette, style and the ambiance of the design. Inspiration also came from the challenge of how to use a serpentine table at a wedding as a guest table. This is four serpentine tables put together to form a circle which leaves a large opening in the center for an over-the-top centerpiece which seats 12!
