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!

Last-Minute Summer Wedding Tips / Tulsa World Article

Happy Tuesday!

Concepts PR was part of 6 weddings this June…phew! So, as we patiently wait for photos from the photographers, I thought I would share an article from the Tulsa World about summer wedding tips.

Tulsa World’s Scene Writer, Bravetta Hassell, interviewed me last week to discuss the many different things a bride needs to prepare for if she chooses to have her wedding in the summer. It is always a great honor when the media calls to ask for an interview!

Here it is:

A couple of other quick notes: Photography is something you also need to consider when planning an outdoor wedding. If you want outdoor shots, you need to make sure your hair and makeup artist(s) know this. Oklahoma has a lot of wind and that beautiful ‘do can fly all over the place if not properly secured. With the heat index rising again (but hasn’t it been such a lovely summer in Oklahoma so far??), professional makeup artists come armed with the right equipment to make sure you and your girls are not shiny on your big day.

Also, make sure to sit down with your photographer to go over what you want for your photography. That may sound obvious, but photographers need to know where you want your shots taken. The heat, combined with the time of day, can really put a damper on your plans. A professional photographer will create a photography timeline that will work with the weather possibilities.

And a final note, make sure you and your wedding party have plenty of water on your big day. And if you are a rustic bride and have found an ideal rustic location but you have mosquitos the size of birds to deal with, don’t forget your insect repellent. There are wonderful organic DEET-free options out there that use herbal oils instead of chemicals (Burt’s Bees has a great option). Always test out new products before your wedding day to see if the smell and the consistency work for you.

Thanks again to Bravetta for this wonderful article! And to all those summer brides out there, Congrats!

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. McNeal!

Well, we did it! We are now through our first real test of the year with wedding season, and the McNeal wedding was the icing on the cake (so to speak!).

Chauntele & Xavier have been such a fun couple to plan with. We will miss them greatly, as we will miss Andrea & Justin and Kimberley & Jamaal. I’d love to say that we get a little break, but we are finalizing some details for a vintage wedding next month.

Here’s a little sneak peak of the awesome reception held at IDL Ballroom. Rentals are by and floral work is by us! Thanks to Zio’s Catering (Katrina is so awesome!) and Randy & Kena with for all your hard work during the reception. The wedding cake & groom’s cake were made by Weddings by Cupid…super yummy!

Congrats again to Mr. & Mrs. McNeal!
