Evan and Rachel
Here’s a post from our very own Kathleen Burggren. She did such an amazing job working with Rachel and Evan to make their day spectacular!
When Lindsay presented me with the opportunity to design on a wedding of my own, I was excited, but after I met Rachel, I knew that we were going to have a fabulous time planning together. Rachel and Evan started dating in high school and after both graduated from the University of Oklahoma, their wedding was a much-anticipated celebration for their family and friends.
Creativity comes easily to Rachel, and every time we met she had a new idea for adding a uniquely personal touch to their wedding. From customized postcards for guests to mail, to wedding-themed “I Spy” games for attending children (complete with the cutest colored pencils in their wedding colors), every aspect of the wedding was a reflection of Rachel’s chic and creative style. Super sweet as well, she even brought gifts and thank-you notes for her vendors… on the day of her own wedding!
Although it was more than a little warm on the day of their outdoor wedding, Rachel remained completely calm and was probably one of the most serene and non-stressed brides I have had the pleasure of working with. After tying the knot on the beautiful grounds of the Gaillardia Country Club, their friends and family celebrated and danced the night away. Later, Rachel and Evan made a classy exit in a white 1958 Jaguar, as guests waved and tossed handfuls of confetti in the air.
Many thanks to all involved, including the many hours put in by our intern, Jayme Glover. Rachel and Evan had quite the vendor line-up, as Birdie transformed the ballroom with beautiful and romantic florals, Marianne’s brought in custom fabric and rentals, Sugar provided the cake and Oklahoma Photobooth provided entertainment for all involved.
