Movin' on up!

Well, the time has come.  Gibson Events is leaping with both feet into a new era.  I am proud to announce that Gibson Events, along with Josh McCullock Photography and Cafe Evoke are the founding members of "1708" a coop of creative professionals based in the Plaza District in OKC.  1708 is a storefront property located in an historic building in the buzzing district along 16th Street; 1708 NW 16th Street to be specific. We signed the lease yesterday and hope to host you and all your friends at an opening in early April.  

The biggest part of my job is ensuring that each event is produced using reputable, creative vendors of the highest quality.  Josh McCullock Photography and Cafe Evoke, a specialty coffee catering company headed by Jason Duncan, are two of the most innovative professionals I could have dreamed to share a space and an ideal with.  I think you will agree, their work is top notch!

Here are a few photos of the space, taken last week by Josh (of course).  The space has come a long way since then- they'll be painting next week!

We look forward to welcoming you into our new space soon.

Our bundle

If you're reading this blog, you probably know... or maybe you don't ?... that Andy and I welcomed our first baby, Daltrey, last August.  In 6 short months she has managed to change our lives so profoundly for the better.  So clients, if you hear a little one exploring her vocal range in the background when you call, here she is.

Brandi Traina of Traina Photography was too kind to take these amazing photos both of the pregnancy and of our beautiful Daltrey.  Many of these shots now adorn our family photo wall and touch me every time I see them.

Brides of Oklahoma Tabletop Design Shoot

Gibson Events was honored to be selected for the "9 Designers and Their Tabletop Decor" feature in the latest issue of the Brides of Oklahoma Magazine.  I had a blast working with Tulips, B.C. Clark, Poppy Lane Design, Coles Garden and Tara Lokey to bring together my submitted design.  

I really love a simple and well put together table.  My personal design aesthetic is more restrained than busy.  I can appreciate the quality of the pieces on this table, but I love that it looks inviting.  Don't you just want to sit down and have a drink?

A special thanks to Tara Lokey for the beautiful photos!

... and the award goes to...

Woo Hoo!  I just received word that Gibson Events has been honored with a "Brides Choice Award" from  That means that Gibson Events scored in the top 3% of vendors in the entire nation, based on client reviews.  Thanks so much to the former clients who have been so generous. and (who use the weddingwire vendor network) are excellent resources for brides to gain inspiration, hone ideas and find the vendors to execute their dream event!
