JX Event Center

I have so much love for this family its hard to even think of where to begin!! I have known the Roberts Family for three years now and it all began when I had the honor of planning Emily and Jay’s wedding in 2016. It was a beautiful event and my favorite part of planning was getting to know both Emily and Jay’s family and seeing the tight knit bond that they all had!

Fast forward to the summer of 2017… I woke up one morning to a text from Dave Roberts. He had sent the text late at night letting me know that Libbie and Matt had gotten engaged. You know that the planning process is going to be fun when on the night of the engagement you get a text!!

Luckily for me, I was open for the date they were hoping to get married and Libbie had already been in super planning mode locking down the Basilica and JX Event Center for their wedding date. With all of the plans starting to come together we focused on the decor, which is always my favorite part of the planning process. The Roberts family are experts at planning decor and always know exactly what they want. We combined elements of a classic wedding with fun and unique details such as gingham patterns, greenery and elegant white floral.

The bridesmaids wore custom made dresses by Camilynbeth (And they are even named the “Libbie”). Libbie incorporated many sentimental elements into her wedding day including a monogram on her veil, photo charms on her bouquet, and custom made cuff links.

We used Libbie and Matt’s monogram to really “brand” the wedding decor. The monogram was included on the day of stationery, favors and We even hung a 3ft monogram above the dance floor!

Just when I did not think the wedding could get any better, Matt’s bar was onsite to cook late night Juicy Lucys for all of the wedding guests… Talk about the perfect end to a great wedding!

Bright, Beautiful and SO Summery… Just looking at Dana and Brandon’s Wedding photos makes me want to go back to this PERFECT June Day in Stillwater!! I am the type of person that is a little intimidated with color. I tend to live in a pewter world; but when it is peony season I can COMPLETELY get behind lots of bold and bright colors and it was SO much fun to get to help Dana and Brandon design and plan their big day!!!

When we toured JX Event Venue it was still a construction site, but we knew from the minute we walked in that it was perfect for the fun and festive feel that Dana and Brandon wanted for their big day.  Sadie’s Couture Flowers and Events spent at least NINE long hours hanging floral pieces and designs from all of the exposed beams to add a whimsy element to an already lovely space!! The staff at JX Event Venue was unbelievable! I am so happy that we have a few more weddings booked there next year!

I have had the pleasure of knowing the wonderful CLARK family for years and I am so honored to plan all 3 of their daughters weddings! They are a FUN family that not only has great style, but they really trust all of their vendors to make their vision come together!  There are plenty of times that I am describing “fun ideas” and I realize that clients have no idea what I am envisioning, until they see it on their wedding day and luckily for me.. they are always very happy with the finished product!!!  Thank you for always trusting me and for letting me be apart of your family!! XOXOX
