I can’t think of a better way to start off 2017 than with this Art Deco themed Oklahoma wedding from Fleckography Co.! Vintage glam lovers will absolutely fall for this stunning blue and gold Gatsby vibe fete. The reception venue is utterly breath-taking! I love how this couple chose to embrace their venue’s style and designed their day around the historic 1920’s building. Their sweetheart table is absolutely to die for!
Our venue was the building block for our wedding design and style. It was built in the late 1920’s and we wanted to capture the ambiance of the roaring 20’s/Art Deco period. We chose to have our colors be Navy and Gold as they fit beautifully together and complimented the venue.
My wedding bouquet was wrapped in lace from my mother’s wedding dress. I wanted to incorporate her dress in some fashion and it made the most beautiful wrap.
The most important while we were planning our wedding was that we wanted to have the best day of our lives and we wanted to share that with our friends and family. After we found our venue we started working on what needed to be done (prioritized) to make sure the best day would happen. We determined what was most important and made sure the budget covered that. Everything else really started to fall into place.
My absolute favorite part was the first look. Seeing my groom for the first time that day is a feeling that I will cherish for the rest of my life. He look absolutely so handsome standing at the base of the stairs waiting for me to come down.
The ceremony was another favorite. Looking out and seeing all the people who matter most in our world witnessing us profess our love for each other. I had managed to not cry up until our vows. But once I started stating my vows to my groom the tears started to roll.
We had a mixture of tall elegant center pieces and lower fuller centerpieces both of which we decorated with the most beautiful flowers and ostrich feathers. We wanted to have a little bit of the Great Gatsby feel when our guests entered the room and we felt that we met that desire. Our cake was designed in the Art Deco fashion as well and was accompanied with french macaroons.The centerpiece of the room was the “sweetheart table”. Our florist created the most beautiful and elegant floral arrangements sitting high on gold candelabras. It really was our dream wedding come to life.
We didn’t really have that many decorations outside the floral arrangements our florist created. The room was so extravagant that not much was needed. We did set up over sized martini glasses filled with fake pearls and fake large diamonds that were placed on the bar tables to keep with the Great Gatsby theme. We also decorated a bird cage to hold the wedding cards by painting it gold and adding a few feather and some fake pearls to it.
My favorite part of the reception, besides the entire reception, was singing/dancing in a group circle to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody with all of our wedding guests. Being among everyone who is most important in our lives at the same time is a blessing that we will cherish for ever.
