Gibson Events is now booking for 2010. Book soon to reserve your date! We are offering a 10% discount on planning and coordination services booked before October 15th so call or email today!

Below are some reasons that we feel like hiring an event designer and coordinator is a logical step in the planning of your unique and wonderful wedding! We hope you'll agree!


  • Event design from concept to completion

  • Relationships with top-notch vendors

  • Keeping you on track

  • Day-of implementation

  • Enjoying your fun (and awesome) wedding day

Think of it this way, you could: do your own taxes, sell your own house, cut your own hair or remodel your own kitchen. Its not that you can’t do these things, but if you think of your wedding as an investment (the most expensive party you’ll ever throw) – hiring a professional to guide you through the experience seems pretty logical!

The investment made in hiring an event planner can come back to you many fold in avoiding lost time, irresponsible vendors and the added stress and headaches that can come with making sure all bases are covered.

A wedding should be the happiest day of your life. Trust Gibson Events to make sure the day runs smoothly!

Erica and Anders

Erica and Anders

Erica knows what she wants and works until she gets it... just my kind of gal! She nabbed Anders while studying abroad, and managed to get the native of Denmark to move to Oklahoma. Every detail of this stunning wedding was attended to with decisiveness and care. Above all, Erica and Anders are a chilled out couple with a fantastic attitude toward life.

Esther Gutman of Photos By Esther took these creative and emotive photos.

For their sit down dinner for 225 we created escort cards and personalized menus with a fantastic deco font. In order to alphabetize the escort cards and have them look fabulous on the table, my assistant Mallory reset this table four times. Good thing I was at the church at the time, I bet she said some not so nice words!

Simply stunning in her gown, Erica posed for photos in several locations on the OU campus.

A room wash, dramatic uplights and a custom dancefloor monagram from IES kept the guests, Danish and American alike, dancing late into the night.

Seriously, have you ever seen anything so cool? Centerpieces by Poppy Lane Design.

Erica's bouquet looked straight out of a magazine. The juxtaposition of cymbidium orchids and pheasant feathers was tres chic, just like the bride!

Emily and Russ

Emily and Russ were meant to be or, "Kismet", but because they do things their own way, they prefer "KI'Z'MET". I had the pleasure of working with Emily (and sometimes Russ) throughout the planning process. They decided to get married at home, in this case a FANTASTIC house in Norman that they finished renovating only 48 hours before the ceremony! The intimate ceremony and seated dinner for 40 was decorated beautifully in shades of crimson and cream.

Farmhouse tables, leaded crystal candelabras and ghost chairs from Mood party rentals set the tone for dinner by candlelight.

Emily and Russ are fantastic hosts and wanted to be sure all of their guests needs were seen to. We ensured that each guest would have a full tummy and happy memories of the wedding by sending them home with a breakfast of cinnamon rolls and juice from one of their favorite Norman eateries, Fancy That. For a little extra fun we created a word search using words significant to their swift but meaningful courtship.

Emily and I worked with Lorie Samples of Red Bud Floral to create a ravishing, and delicious smelling, bouquet that while full, wasn't overpowering of Emily's petite frame.

Charley Samples, of Charles Samples Photograpy, is a master at capturing the emotion of a moment. Here we see Emily descending the stairs to meet her dad, only seconds before she walked down the aisle!

The 100 square foot tree house in the backyard was built by a previous owner. The romantic site served as the scene of Russ' over the top candle lit proposal.

If I were to describe Emily in one word, I'd have to choose "fun". I think the above photo pretty much sums it up.

The giddy couple moments after saying, "I do".
