Event Planning + Coordination

Jamie & Brad

I wanted to stop in and share a few photos from the Jamie and Brad’s wedding this past weekend! It was a beautiful rustic wedding held at the Riverwood Barn and Amphitheater in Durant, Oklahoma. It’s a brand new venue in the Southern Oklahoma area, there have only been  a few weddings held there so far and it is just beautiful! If you are looking for a rustic or barn venue, definitely check out Riverwood. I took quite a few photos on venue walkthrough’s so I’ll do a separate post on the venue! Back to Jamie & Brad, I assisted with the planning process, centerpieces, and flowers. The theme was rustic, and the colors were hot pink, purple, and blue. Here are a few photos I took that day. I’ll do another blog post when the professional photos arrive!

A combination of silk and fresh flowers for this wedding. All the guest table centerpieces and arrangements in the barn were made using silk flowers, which means they could be made weeks in advance. I love being able to do this, and it cuts down on the number of things that have to be done either the day before or the day of the wedding. Pop a plastic bag over the top (like a Wal-Mart sack) to protect the flowers from dust, and store them til you need them!

Fresh flowers were used for all ceremony flowers, including the bouquets, boutonnieres and wrist corsages, and altar and aisle arrangements. The flowers used in the bouquets were: white Carnations, blue Cornflowers, pink and purple Stock, and some Solidago, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Larkspur.

The bouquet transport box was made from an old box and several .97 vases from Wal-Mart. I outlined all the vases with pen on the box and then used a knife to cut the holes. This allows the bouquets to sit in water AND travel safely to the wedding venue.
