Zucker + Henderson Fall Outdoor Wedding | Farthing Hills

The fall outdoor wedding of Amber Zucker and Matt Henderson is definitely marked as one of Oklahoma’s “Weddings of the Year”. Their awe inspiring outdoor ceremony and reception took place on the groom’s beautifully wooded hilltop location coined Farthing Hills. From this vantage point, wedding guests had a 270-degree view overlooking the beautiful rolling forests of the Osage Hills in full Autumn splendor and the glimmering lights of downtown Tulsa. Concepts Weddings & Events not only designed and coordinating this tastefully lavish wedding with vintage and rustic charm, but also contributed to developing Farthing Hills as Tulsa, Oklahoma’s newest, and most impressive, outdoor wedding venue.

Casino Birthday Party | Bartlesville Community

A 1940s-themed joint birthday party for an awesome couple held in the studio theatre at the Bartlesville Community Center.

CHALLENGE

– 1 hour from our offices

– 40 minutes to setup the entire party

– No event vendors in Bartlesville

SOLUTION

We brought in SRO Productions to handle the casino games while our team put together centerpieces ready to place when we arrived. Ludger’s Catering provided a fantastic spread that they had ready for us to pick up on disposable trays. We focused the decor on large eye-catching pieces, such as feather towers, balloons, drapery and crystals since we had little time to setup. Ann’s Bakery tied everything together with a gorgeous casino-themed birthday cake.

RESULT

A fantastic birthday party that nobody wanted to leave!

Global Table Experience | Philbrook Museum of Art

Chef and author Sasha Martin, along with Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Philbrook Museum of Art, enlisted event planner Meghan Hurley of Concepts Weddings & Events to coordinate the Global Table Experience, featuring 175 dishes from 175 countries, during the Philbrook Museum of Arts’ Annual Fall Fest, the museum’s free public event.

CHALLENGE

Coordinating 16 deliveries from local chefs, caterers, and culinary schools.

Food, prepared off-site, required immediate placement in chafing dishes minutes before opening, in order to maintain proper temperature.

Moving large amounts of people through a food tasting, without being hurried.

Planned to be held on the Philbrook Museum’s south garden, weather forecasts, as they do in Oklahoma, quickly changed to rain.

 

SOLUTION

A generous volunteer staff coordinated through Concepts Weddings & Events and the Philbrook Museum of Art ensured that all participants were served.

Fortunately when weather proves problematic, Meghan has a Plan B coordinated for all her events.  Working with the Philbrook, Meghan was able to reroute food vendor deliveries and create a pedestrian traffic plan utilizing the Philbrook’s Entry Foyer and Gallery spaces to showcase the tremendous labor of love by local chefs and food vendors.  Ultimately, the choice to move indoors proved to be a bigger success in terms of serving the large crowd gathered, by organizing and expediting people through the tasting.
