A BRIDAL FASHION DAY
The perfect scenario
The Monastery at Forest Lake was the perfect frame for the last Blac Box Collective´s event last Saturday night. The Matrimony Project was a successful Bridal Fashion Show featuring gowns & dresses from The Formal Niche; a bridal and formal boutique who offers consigned bridal, bridesmaids, prom & other accessories.
This beautiful Venue has also a Wedding Chapel; this is an historic chapel from 1928 with vaulted cross-timber ceiling, reception hall, and overlooks to a beautiful 4 acre lake.
At the time of our arrival, the ambiance was already set for a great evening; the DJ music was surrounding the whole place providing a pleasant chic experience; parking lot arrangements were made to accommodate everybody without setbacks; refreshments & drinks were set up on beautiful tables linen and a nice host was ready to receive us with a pleasant smile.
All the models were in one of the beautiful rooms of the facility getting ready while the guests were assigned a seat by the red carpet. Of course we did not miss the chance to take some pictures by the beautiful landscape and the lake. The ambiance and the warmth of the summer days wrapped us in a flowery atmosphere and lot of natural light.
Right on 7:30 pm the show started with fabulous Bridal Gowns & Bridesmaids dresses. The pale rose, off-white, ivory and white pearl were the tones of this runway. For sure on her wedding day, any bride desires a dress that totally wows and any of the ones we watched here could work like a winner. While the trends change all the time, there is one that keeps coming back: the classic strapless princess wedding dress that Our Friend For Life™ Theresa Bui (on the second photo of this post) wore beautifully.
Even when the path was a little rough, the models made a great effort to walk glamorously without stumbling. There is no doubt that they all looked spectacular, although we would have liked to see more dresses. The show just lasted a few minutes because the fun was not ending up yet; The Blac Box Collective had a surprise for all the guests; the golden clasp to close the event in an emotionally, loving & unforgettable way.
THE REAL WEDDING FINALE!
Price & Robyn Sonkarley were friends for a while. After they met for lunch for first time; they found out that there was more in common between them than their taste for sports; so at Robyn´s next bday celebration, Price planned to give her a surprise proposing at the stage of the venue infront of all their family and friends. The rest is history…
Not only family and friends were witnesses of this magic event but also all the fashion show´s guests were kindly invited to be present at the ceremony that was surprisingly short and concise but very emotive and full of love.
Usually people who do not belong to family or friends are not invited to your wedding, but in this case all of us were fortunate to be part of this heartwarming event. Whether it’s a lounge party, a nightly fashion show with a recognized designer, a mixed customized branding event or creating memorable connections with the audience; our Friends For Life™ of Blac Box Collective are always creating experiences that engage spectators during and even before the events happen. So Thank you Blac Box & Theresa Bui for always keeping Kalidy involved in this kind of events. Without a doubt it was a unique event that is creating something good to talk about in the beautiful Oklahoma City, that seems keep bringing up more entertainment and good stuff, turning it into a great city to live in.
