Sherree and Brad

August 16, 2013

People shouldn’t be allowed to be this good looking on the outside and this good hearted on the inside. These two are as good as they come.  Sherree is a teacher by day/singer-songwriter by passion, while Brad is the designer behind our Ball and Chain and Dutch brands (among the other goodness he produces at his day job).

It was truly a pleasure to be a part of their beautiful and very unique wedding day.  The ceremony was a surprise, and was held after the toasts at their rooftop reception.  It was VERY emotional.

Jackie and Ryan – engaged in paradise

July 25, 2013

We recently took a family vacation that included a stay in Carmel, California.  While there I had the awesome opportunity to style not one, but two photography sessions for this beautiful (inside and out) couple.  Working with a dear friend and crazy talented photographer Aaron Snow, I wish I could take more credit -  but mostly Jackie and Ryan were just fabulous, Aaron is a genius with the camera and, in Carmel, you could shoot in the parking lot of the gas station and it would look like a million bucks!  It was an honor to get to work with such a cast of characters.

Ball and Chain; a thoughtfully curated bridal show that doesn’t feel like torture

January 14, 2013

Coming to the Plaza District of Oklahoma City on January 24th, 2013, is this labor of love from the Gibson Events team.  All the info and tickets are available here.  But here’s a little backstory… we’ve been working on this concept for about two years now.  Traditional bridal shows aren’t generally a great fit for us, or our friends in the business.  We know we have a niche market, and we’re okay with it.  But wouldn’t it be fun to show what we can do to folks who DO want our aesthetic?  Um, yes.

So we figured we should do a little styled shoot to support our vision.  We are absolutely THRILLED that Southern Weddings are not only participating in the Ball and Chain, but are also blogging our shoot today!  You can see their post here.

Below are more of our favorite photos from the day.  The best part, oh the best part… is that these images were captured by not just one, but four of our favorite photographers.  Everyone brings their own perspective, and the result is GORGEOUS.  We hope you’ll agree.

Kirby and Lane

November 20, 2012

Could these two be ANY cuter?  No… is the answer.  Two more genuine and giving people you will never find.  We absolutely LOVED getting to work with Kirby and her mother (and often Lane and Cowboy, Kirby’s step dad) on their Dallas wedding. 

If you ever wondered how Gibson Events does a Ballroom wedding, here’s your answer.  It is GORGEOUS.

Thank you Kirby and Lane for letting us be a part of your big day!

Kristin and Cody

September 14, 2012

Kristin and Cody eloped in Yosemite.  You can see the fantastical images of their wedding here.  Because tradition isn’t really their thing, they bucked the system and had a send off party instead of a reception afterward.  I have to say, I was skeptical about how the event would feel.  The anticipation and happiness were electric and it made for a great party. 

The ask from Kristin was, “have you ever been to the East Side Showroom in Austin?”, our answer, “actually, we were there last week”.  We brought elements of the prohibition era feel of the Austin bar into the raw industrial space of RED, including a pair of mixologists who could not have been any cooler, slinging cocktails that would make grandma sit up and take notice. 

All in all, it was a total blast!  Thanks guys for letting us be a part of it!
