Taylor and Jason’s chic Oklahoma wedding took place in November, and the design is beautifully modern, yet completely classic and true to them – the best! Taylor loves Kate Spade, so naturally, the pair incorporated Kate Spade’s eponymous style (think: classic details, stripes, and gold confetti), but I love how they made their design their own too. The couple wanted their wedding to honor the fall season when their soiree took place, so they filled their palette with a bold color palette made up of shades of black, white, red, purple, green, and gold (of course!).
Taylor and Jason will also be the first to tell you how much they valued their event planner, Leslie Herring Events! We also have to note how much we love the emotion filled photos captured by Kristen Edwards Photography. The fact that Kristen and her husband were able to capture photos of the couple together prior to the ceremony without the couple actually seeing each other is brilliant and a serious feat (Jason didn’t want to do a first look because he wanted to see Taylor for the first time as she walked down the aisle)! Taylor is here with us today to share more about her wedding planning experience- we can’t wait for you to see all of the pretty! Welcome to Oklahoma City, y’all!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Our wedding planner, Leslie of Leslie Herring Events, was a complete life saver! My mom was also there to help every step of the way. We made a great team!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
Having Leslie as our wedding planner, really took the work out of finding the right vendors for our special day. By taking her advice, we trusted that she would only work with the best of the best and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
I LOVE Kate Spade, but her colors tend to be more suited for Spring and Summer weddings. My wedding took place in November so I took her black and white stripes and gold polka dot patterns and incorporated them with darker, more vibrant fall colors.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Aside from marrying my best friend, my favorite part of our wedding was being able to share it with all of our closest friends and family… especially my grandma. She passed away just a few short months after the wedding and I know that it meant the world to her to be there. We love and miss you Mem’l!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Getting a wedding planner is totally worth it! I don’t know how many times my mom and I said, “I don’t know how we could have done this without her!” It really took the stress out of everything from choosing the vendors to the flow of the day. It was also nice to have a professional to turn to when we had questions about anything. Also, make sure to invest in a great photographer. Kristen Edwards and her husband did a great job. I’m glad that we have such wonderful photos to look back on and cherish forever!
