After graduating from nursing school, Sara decided to treat herself to a new car. Upon arriving to the dealership, she was greeted by a charming salesman named Carson and instantly had a connection. After dating for 5 years, Carson decided to pop the question at a friend’s boutique while Sara modeled their new inventory. Once she chose her favorite dress, she went outside and was surprised to find Carson standing in front of a beautiful archway with a photographer and a recently snow covered ground.
When planning their wedding, the couple knew that they wanted to get out of Oklahoma’s cold weather and exchange vows somewhere warmer (and hopefully more tropical). After looking at countless venues, the two decided on Isla del Sol because it immediately checked all of their boxes.
Sara and Carson decided to hold their ceremony on Isla Del Sol’s private beach right before sunset. Although the area was already beautiful, Event Design enhanced the setting even more by adding drapery to the gazebo and chairs along with two massive flower arrangements comprised of their wedding colors – varying shades of pink, ivory, and white!
When deciding on the decor for the reception space, the couple wanted to make sure to compliment the already present deep hues of Isla Del Sol’s ballroom. They chose gold chiavari chairs and chargers for their accent piece which blended perfectly with the venue’s three brass chandeliers. Event Design accented the center lighting fixture with ceiling drapery which helped create the perfect first dance photograph.
Flowers were a really big necessity for Sara and Carson’s decor. Along with the ceremony arrangements (which was later reused on their sweetheart table), the two decided on mixing up the centerpieces by incorporating both tall and low ones on the tables. Event Design also created a dramatic and cascading bouquet for Sara while providing smaller round arrangements for her bridesmaids.
When it comes to planning a wedding, Sara wanted to make sure it was as stress free as possible. We asked her what her biggest advice to newly engaged couples is and she responded by saying “to invest into companies, like Even Design, that does absolutely everything on the day of! Event Design helped me plan my dream wedding because they took care of ALL the decor and flowers! Other vendors came up to me during hair and makeup time and commented on how impressive the decor was turning out! Event Design did all the ceremony and reception set up and breakdown. It truly was a beautiful and stress free day!”
