Real Wedding: Sarahbeth & Taylor

Yesterday we posted THIS fun rehearsal dinner, and today is the long awaited wedding! You may remember THIS inspiration board for Sarahbeth and Taylor’s special day and today we get to show you to final product. If you have been following the blog you know that Sarahbeth is the perfect southern bride with soft, vintage taste. My first design meeting with her was quite funny now that I think about it; she was loving bright coral, lime green and purple. Needless to say we softened the colors and she loved it! Anne Marie Foy of THE FRENCH BOUQUET TULSA was great to work with for all of the florals. Sarahbeth’s bridal bouquet brought happy tears to eyes, and the bridesmaids bouquets were smaller versions of Sarahbeth’s. With soft grey and champagne colored bridal party dresses, and black tuxes for the gentlemen the wedding party was stunning. NIKKI OVERLAND with MAKEUP BY NICOLE did the girls makeup and they all looked gorgeous! OLD URBAN TROLLEY was the perfect form of transportation to get this large bridal party to the church on time, and we can’t forget WALT BEAZLEY of JAMES WALTON PHOTOGRAPHY. Thank you Walt for these incredible images. Also, we would like to thank the generous staff and officiant at FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, DOWNTOWN TULSA. With so many great photos this is only part 1 of this gorgeous wedding. We’ll be back this afternoon with part 2: the reception at THE MAYO HOTEL!

    Christina, thank you for doing an incredible job of coordinating and dreaming up the design of our wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect. We would not change a thing and I feel so blessed to have worked with Zinke and the other wonderful Tulsa vendors that you suggested. Everyone could not have been nicer or more helpful in the planning process and day of. Thank you for all you did to help make our most special day go beautifully!

    • Thank you for your sweet words, Sarahbeth! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you for your special day. I couldn’t be more happy that you loved every aspect, and loved the entire experience! I wish you and Taylor all the best as Mr. and Mrs.!
