Maggie Sottero, you’ve just bowled me over. The search can end here. It’s just too lovely. But then, of course, there’s the veil. Which has gone and made matters much worse. But it doesn’t stop there because the getaway car is altogether perfection. With all the little details that add up in between, this wedding is an absolute favorite of my mine for this spring. Which brings me to the killer photographer behind it all: Justin DeMutiis. He’s really making it all look as editorial as possible. Jessica and Derek are such a gorgeous couple…so I think they might have made it just a bit easier on Justin.

It wouldn’t be just if we didn’t tip our hats (in a rather generous sway) to the creative talent that is responsible for all of today’s eye candy: Burkle Events. Many more lovely vendors to check out below.

Happy Monday.

We think you will too.

The holidays are upon us, so today, we thought it would be perfect to share with you some seasonal inspiration from designer, Elleson Events with gorg blooms by Isn’t She Lovely Florals. We love the beach setting at Casa Ybel Resort, which is an unexpected yet perfectly serene backdrop for a winter scene. Photographer Cody Hunter captured all the lovely details, and we’re especially smitten with the invitation suite by Elizabeth Porcher Jones.

Lacy and Mark were married in an intimate early evening ceremony held at the Chouse in Norman, Oklahoma.  The Chouse is now a privately owned home, but was originally the St. Thomas More University Parish attended by the groom as a boy. The highlight of the ceremony was the giving of rings, when the groom surprised the bride by presenting her with a beautiful and unexpected pear shaped diamond ring in addition to her channel set engagement band that she had intended to wear as her wedding ring.  Not a dry eye in the house and an audible gasp from the bride!

Lindsay, of Gibson Events and the bride Lacy worked together to design the reception in a working greenhouse. Guests were welcomed down a lantern lit path into the greenhouse.  A labyrinth like space that was filled to the brim with nooks and crannies of fountains, Koi ponds and romantic seating areas where guests could almost slip away unnoticed.  Of the approximately 5,000 square feet of indoor space only about 40% was usable for guest seating, food/bar service and dancing.  With a little ingenuity Lindsay and the vendor team made use of every available space! “The magical feeling was palpable,” said their photographer, Aaron Snow.

Tell us about your vision for the big day!

I had been introduced to Lindsay Gibson previously and knew I wanted her to be the director guiding our vision. Before meeting with her I looked on her blog and fell for a small scale promotional photo shoot she had done at an awesome old Greenhouse in Oklahoma City. Our meeting was simple, I showed her the pictures and said, “please make this happen for us.” We quickly began brainstorming over venues that would serve as our inspiration. After a trip to the Greenhouse in Norman, Lindsay’s wheels began spinning and soon she had us convinced. Lindsay pulled together vendors and resources from previous associations.

What was your most memorable part of the day?

Mark arranged a breakfast for all the women in both families on the morning of the wedding.  It was the perfect calming and peaceful experience I needed before the busyness of the day set in.
Lindsay and our photographer, Aaron, arranged for us to do our first look at the Greenhouse so that we could see it before the guests arrived and because it was an amazing backdrop for photos with not an ugly view in sight!  I was so nervous and second guessing the idea of slipping into my gown in the back room of a garden center, but the moment Mark turned around and I saw his reaction I thought, “Yes, this is right, this is awesome, this is exactly what we wanted, now let’s have a party!”.

What are some personal details you added to make the wedding unique?

Tons of heirlooms, including: The flower girl basket — same basket used at my parent’s wedding, handkerchief I carried–my grandmother’s “something old”, I wore my Grandmother’s wedding ring for “something borrowed”, and the earrings my parent’s gave me were my “something new”.

How did you meet and become engaged?

Our story starts in 2007 when I was an intern at the company that Mark worked for. As we reflect on our history together he shares how he was really impressed with my passion, enthusiasm, commitment, and drive to the job. Immediately after my internship I went abroad and studied in Italy. Due to the connection we made I frequently contacted Mark while overseas to share my experiences. When I came back to the United States I started working for the same company that Mark worked for in 2009. Within a year Mark decided to take a chance and ask me out on a date. I refused at first. However that did not diffuse Mark’s feelings he had developed for me. After a month of persistent romantic gestures I agreed to go on a date with him. We went to Othello’s in Norman and what I thought would be a quick dinner turned into a three hour intimate conversation. After that dinner Mark and I were inseparable. Before knew it the first chapter of our love story lasted 3 years. Mark proposed to me on the anniversary of our first date on a surprise trip to New York City. It wasn’t long before we settled on a wedding date and began the planning.
