October has been such a busy month for us, but we are finally getting the pictures and videos from our first few events!

I met Ashley, Vince, and Ashley’s parents over Thanksgiving weekend last year, and it was a match from the start! Ashley and Vince live in Colorado, so we planned mostly via FaceTime and email. If you are planning from afar, pictures are definitely worth a 1,000 words. We had so much fun with this couple!

This stunning wedding at Gilcrease Museum was one for the record books: Drapery from floor to ceiling, lots of bling, candelabras, and tons of gorgeous flowers…and did you see that amazing cake?! Thank you to the entire design team for all of your hard work!

Weekend Recap / Greetings from Santa Fe

Hello friends!

I’m writing today’s blog from a Starbucks in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s nice to get away from Tulsa every now and then, and after last week’s events, it is much needed!

Two very cool events took place on Saturday: Global Table Experience at Philbrook Museum of Art and Jacky & Alex’s wedding at All Souls Unitarian Church.

Global Table Experience was a collaboration every step of the way. From the amazing staff at Philbrook, the 16 culinary geniuses that donated their time, talent, and food, Argie Lewis Flowers for their beautiful colorful floral creations, Eisenhower School for their culture boxes and globes, Restaurant Supply for their donation of servingware, and my amazing staff & the volunteers that invested their time and labor, this event was a massive undertaking, to say the least. Sasha Martin’s dream of a table filled with dishes from every country in the world came true on Saturday afternoon. The most difficult part of the whole event was coordinating 16 chefs through 2 small entrances to deliver over 175 dishes in under an hour, but it all happened beautifully and perfectly. With the public lining up and snaking around the entire main entrance of Philbrook, we were able to open exactly at 1PM with no issues. It. Was. Incredible. Over 375 people were able to sample (and some more than sampled…hahaha!) dishes from every part of the world. We color-coordinated the colors of the linens to the colors of the continents on the brochure, and then decorated with fun toys and figurines from different countries. Not one person was turned away, and everyone left happy. It was amazing.

The centerpieces from Signature Flowers were adorned with moss, candles, and delicate orchids. The earthy/fall colors were subtle, but very elegant. Everything flowed beautifully, and the weather was perfect!Concepts PR, Artworks Photography, Signature Flowers, All Souls Unitarian Church, Evoke Espresso Bar, ABCO Rents, Trimmins by Timmons

And now I sit in Santa Fe, about to head to an art gallery before another event tonight! Which brings up another point: I love technology!

As a business owner, traveling while 90% of your business is in one geographical location scares the crap out of me. I worry about everything. I worry about missing important calls, deliveries, meetings, etc. This morning, I was able to conduct a conference call via FaceTime from my hotel room while Kristy met with a potential new client in from California. Technology is awesome (although my hotel has really crappy wifi). In fact, we have planned several weddings and events with Skype and FaceTime. Last month’s birthday bash was primarily planned with texts, FaceTime, and pictures. We’ve had a number of couples from all over the US (and even other countries) that ask if it’s possible to plan an event from afar. The short answer is yes! We have done it and will continue to do it. Even our busy Oklahoma brides don’t always have time for a face-to-face, so we Skype. I even Skyped with a photographer 2 weeks ago…again, technology is awesome.

So, from 650 miles away, I sign off. Have a great day!
