During their planning, Katty and Chris knew that the focus of their garden wedding in Oklahoma would be the experience of their guests. With a guest list of over 400 people and a bridal party of 34, it’s easy to imagine that any sense of personality or intimacy would be overlooked, but this was far from the case for their wedding. Katty hired creative director Ginny Au to create a day that allowed the newlyweds to celebrate in sophisticated style, at the same time as creating a welcoming atmosphere.
Despite the extensive guest list, the reception managed to feel intimate, with no detail overlooked. An inspiring space was designed, incorporating textured linen, plenty of candlelight, and fresh fruit mixed into the tablescapes…and, individual buttercream frosted cakes for each guest’s dessert.
The palette of Katty’s bouquet alone is just breathtaking: summery hues of pink, peach, and coral added to rich foliage and pale blue silk ribbon brings such a sense of life and vibrancy.
