Featured Photoshoot!

Here it is! As featured on Style Me Pretty!

White Wedding by Josh McCullock and Gibson Events: "

When I was little, my parents took me to visit my aunt, who happened to live in a perfect apartment right on the Boston Commons. An all white, absolutely perfect apartment right on the Boston Commons. I fell in love. Not with the apartment really, but with the idea of dressing my world in white. And ever since then, that is exactly what I have done. White winter coats, white furniture, white purses, shoes, pants, even white sofas. Gasp. So when I saw this white inspired wedding shoot sent to us by Oklahoma photographer Josh McCullock, with styling and design by Gibson Events, well…I swooned even harder than usual.

Inspiration: Wine glass terrariums, succulents, ferns and a vintage tandem bike

Some of the highlights of this shoot included locally made butcher block cutting board as cake plateau, succulents and ferns in a collection of milk glass compotes, vintage Schwinn tandem bike and custom menus and place cards designed by Kathleen Shannon for Gibson Events. They also had an Italian Soda bar featuring vinyl decal of tandem bike and a custom wedding cake by Sugar.

And if you didn’t think it could get any better…wrong! Here is a film of the shoot so you can really see it all come to life..

A Fairytale...

Jesse Lucas and Adam Butkus
October 24, 2009

My sweet little baby niece got married, and I was only too happy to help her realize her vision! Jesse and Adam make a perfect pair. She was totally calm, he was totally not. They were both stunning.

Saving the world, one wedding at a time...

This picture (by my 1708-mate, Josh McCullock) made me laugh. Then it made me think about how I work. Although I sit at this desk on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays looking at least halfway decent, I spend much more time standing with a cup of coffee in my kitchen - laptop on the counter and my toddler playing with her dolly, or more likely ripping up a newspaper that she found in the living room.

I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, an entrepreneur, a volunteer and a friend making a go of having it all.

Speaking of being a mom, here are some of Daltrey's one year photos by the ever talented Brandi Traina of Traina Photography. Just realized I never posted them!

British Glam, thank you ma'am!

We are so proud of the Gibson Events tabletop design spread on pages 88 and 89 of the brand new issue of the Brides of Oklahoma! The title of this year's submission is British Glam. I imagined it as the reception for a couple of really hip Londoners.

Event design is pretty much one of my favorite things in the whole world. I really get into the creative process. This year my submission came complete with a playlist, that although not in the magazine, I feel enhances the visual experience. So... if you don't mind, please amass the selections below before viewing either the spread, the video or the additional photos from the shoot featured here. Just kidding - I thought it was a cool idea though.

Sugar and Spice

We were honored to be asked by one of our favorite bakers, Sugar, in Norman to design their Valentine's window display. Christie and Dennis are incredibly talented cake artists. If you are looking for a cake that looks fabulous and tastes delicious, they should be your first call!

Hot Off the Press!

With the start of the New Year comes exciting press exposure for Gibson Events that we would love to share with everyone (just in case you missed it!).

If you happened to pick up the January/February edition of Silk Magazine, published by the Norman Transcript, you were bound to notice Lindsay's interview on wedding trends for 2010,
entitled "Here Come the Changes". Over the beautiful two-page spread featuring Gibson Events weddings, she dishes her wisdom and insight in wedding inspiration, photography and colors, as well as helpful tips on how to save money yet still create your dream wedding. Pick up a copy and check it out!

Also, a huge thanks to the photographers who provided photos for the article: Charles Samples, Evan James French, Photos by Esther and Traina Photography. They are so very talented and made the article look FABULOUS!

We are also proud to announce that for the second year in a row, Gibson Events has been chosen to receive the 2010 Brides Choice Award from the WeddingWire Network, which is associated with Martha Stewart Weddings. This award, recognizing the top 5 percent of local wedding professionals who "demonstrate excellence in quality, service, and professionalism", is determined solely by extensive surveys and reviews from recent brides and grooms, so we would like to thank all our wonderful couples from 2009 for honoring us with this award. We are blessed with great clients!
