When a bride and groom are looking to plan their wedding day from the ground up, with every touch being custom designed, securing a dynamic duo such as our Luxe List partners Event Planner Jordan Payne and Revelry Event Designs is a must. Together they threaded Cameron and Winston’s vision and personality preferences into a dream-like setting. Their knowledge of floral design, décor, furnishing and lightening is unparalleled to anything we have seen. With this featured wedding from Midland, Texas we invite you to sit back and take in this custom designed wedding, impressive craftsmanship and photography of Thisbe Grace Photography.
Cameron and Winston’s fairy tale romance began when they met in high school and allowed their friendship to blossom until they began officially dating in college.
The proposal came the day after Thanksgiving at Cameron’s family ranch under a glass gazebo her father built. Winston presented her with a storybook brimming with photographs from their high school prom to special trips they had shared throughout the years. And if that was not special enough, he topped it off with a 110-year-old diamond ring that belonged to his great-great-grandfather!
As natives of Midland, Texas having their wedding in their hometown was an obvious choice, surrounded by family and friends. With gold being Cameron’s favorite color, she had an easy starting point for what she envisioned. She opted for less color and let the neutrals of creamy ivory, sophisticated hues of taupe and prominent gold take center stage for her color palate. Every element was designed from scratch. Both Jordan Payne and Revelry Event Designers executed the custom touches in the personalized ceremony and tented reception in a flawless manner. When Cameron would see a floral piece that inspired her, she would send it to Jordan who would interpret it into part of the overall design work. Clean lines, elegance and most of all – glamour – were the direction.
For ceremony Cameron and Winston chose to keep it simplistic with white floral arrangements incorporating nearly every blossom variety. Jordan utilized roses, hydrangeas and tulips to create lush floral garlands while she chose an abundance of baby’s breath to grace the tops of large golden urns. Bridesmaids wore floor-length dresses they designed through Synderela with sequin gold bodices and taupe skirts while carrying matching bouquets. Cameron looked like a Grecian goddess wearing a Kenneth Pool ball gown with princess ruffles. Her bejeweled bouquet that complimented the floral décor and her bridesmaids heightened her glowing appeal.
Cameron and Winston’s first look at the reception tent was one of complete awe and surprise. It was a moment for the couple when they realized all the planning and work had come full circle. The club was reimagined in a tenting of ivories and gold, taking a full week for the design team to make over. Creamy drapes of fabric recreated the environment forming a soft and airy ceiling and walls. They used the existing trees in the club and wrapped them luxurious floral garlands. The intermixing of sofas and ottomans with banquette and intimate tables created lounge areas all in shades of white, taupe and gold. Peppering the scene were tall cream-colored arrangements that overflowed with flowers and crystals. To add a sophisticated glow to the room, Jordan, Revelry Event Designs and Events Moderne hung chandeliers throughout. The focal point was the custom installation of hanging crystals in the shape of an oblong oval suspended above the dance floor!
The couple’s wedding cake design was inspired by Cameron’s gown, accented with pearly confection and golden geometric designs with plump golden roses. The groom’s cake paid homage to Winston’s alma mater and was a replica of the University of Oklahoma football stadium. Fancy Cakes by Lauren‘s work was the frosting on top, full of sugary delight for the 500 guests in attendance.
The entire soiree was filled with unforgettable and intimate memories. Truly a dream day for the bride and groom. Congratulations to the bride and groom, as well as a magnificent team of vendors!
