There is no denying that Judy Lehmbeck is Oklahoma City’s society planner. Her decades of experience have earned her a stellar reputation for being client focused and able to consistently produce unique statement events. We have the privilege of working with her over and over - and it’s a privilege every time!

We loved working on her vendor team for Caroline and Gabe’s unique wedding at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club in March 2018. This client had an incredibly unique vision and Judy expertly managed it’s execution with design help from Greg at New Leaf Florist. The couple wanted a real party atmosphere for a large number of guests and we collectively faced unique space planning challenges that led to some cool and creative solutions which totally transformed a space all of us are very familiar with working in. It was truly a creative collaboration! We’re using these fabulous images by Perez Photography to help illustrate Judy’s beautiful work.

We draped the Club’s portico in custom panels with specialty rigging for the tricky outdoor installation. This set a fun and colorful vibe as guests entered this unique wedding. Judy places a signature emphasis on creating an impactful “wow factor” that will impress guests. This was just the first of several at this event! Our full service lighting team illuminated the outdoor entrance both for dramatic effect of New Leaf’s unique floral installation as well as the guests experience during their evening arrival.

Our team provided a full range of custom linens throughout the large space. A mixed metal, neutral scheme full of playful, modern patterns was a creative backdrop for brilliant pops of creative florals illuminated by our event lighting.

Judy is an expert at facilitating unique experiences for guests. Besides all the creative space planning that intrigued guests, she brought in Meredith Piper, a live event paper who created this stunning painting during the event. We were so excited to see our linens featured! Guests could enjoy watching her painting develop over the evening and later, the couple has a unique art keepsake to commemorate their wedding day. Here is a picture of her painting in progress:

 

 

 

Another creative application that Judy included with this event was the use of our popular Avenue Bar with a custom overlay. When illuminated by our full service lighting team, these turned out very cool inside Harry’s Bar. We paired the bars with our popular Ghost Bar Stools to finish off the look.

We’ve saved the best for last because we weren’t kidding when we said Caroline & Gabe wanted a party! After dinner, the guests found the party and dancing underneath our clear top tent to the musical stylings of Party on the Moon. You can experience the whole beautiful story by watching the full Pen Weddings Video HERE. But we were honored to have them make us a special edit highlighting the our new clear top tent! We might be a little biased, but having this item to offer our customers thanks to this event is truly one of Judy’s great contributions to our industry this year!
