Oklahoma Elegant Vintage Outdoor Wedding

When you peruse through our next feature, you might be surprised that it rained almost the entire day at Lauren and Justin’s wedding. The skies cleared just long enough for Lauren and Justin to say their “I Dos,” before it started to sprinkle again. Despite the bad weather the day went perfectly, just they as they planned. Lauren explains in detail all about their elegant vintage outdoor wedding. Of course as always there is so much more to see in the full wedding gallery by clicking here. All captured by Amanda Watson Photography.

From The Bride:
I carried a vintage locket attached to my bouquet. It contained pictures of the two couples that meant the most to me, and had shown me how to make a marriage last; my parents and my dad’s parents.

The historical hunting lodge is set in the middle of an expanse of green lawn, lush woods and huge rock outcroppings that overlook a valley. The sounds of the breeze, trickling water and bird song filled the air.

Even the onset of bad weather couldn’t break the calm relaxing feeling that engulfs Skelly Lodge. Rain clouds seemed to be playing hide and seek with the sun. Occasional sprinkles kissed the vegetation but didn’t dampen our spirits. Umbrellas and a contingency plan were ready.

Details & Decor
The best description of our theme is Eclectic Vintage. I had collected milk glass for a long time. So, many of the pieces we used were mine; some were gifts to my collection from family and friends. And during the months preceding the wedding Justin and I spent many hours looking through local thrift and vintage shops to find more. Doilies were gotten in the same way. We both had a hand in planning every detail. Our coordinator Renee, was amazing. She made sure that that everything came together just as we had planned. There was nothing for us to do on “the day of” but relax and get ourselves ready to walk down the aisle.

I wanted all of the details to flow together, creating a soft romantic pallet that melted into the rustic setting of the lodge itself. Using natural colors and gold accents heightened the vintage feeling I was trying to capture. Clusters of lush flowers in milk glass, set on doilies and place settings that looked as if they came from grandma’s table mixed with the warm glow of candles to add a vintage feel to the reception.
