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.
