swoon worthy venues

Say yes to the perfect venue.

Maybe you are recently engaged or deciding to start the planning process and you aren't sure where to start for venues. The venue is huge. It is where you will say your vows and tell your love story so you want to make sure the aesthetic is swoon worthy. Whether you want something casual and low key or a formal affair I want to give you my top venues. 

First, let me tell you a perk to having a wedding planner. 

When you hire a coordinator they will help you with picking our and finding the venue. As a planner I want to make sure I help my brides and grooms find a venue they will fall in love with and want to have their wedding celebration at. Picking a venue is something you should do at least 9 to 12 months in advance depending on the time of your wedding and the demand of the venue. 

Oklahoma is truly blooming with new and innovative venue spaces + we have some great historic landmark locations that would be perfect to say I do. There is so many venues in Oklahoma to choose from, but I want to tell you my personal favorites. 

1. The Rooftop at Plenty Mercantile

So see this eclectic rooftop click here

So not only should you check out Plenty Mercantile for their shopping, but also for their venue space. This eclectic and one of a kind rooftop & warehouse is perfect for the couple who is down to have a good time while having a killer view. Don't worry they have a backup option if the crazy Oklahoma weather acts up (fingers crossed it doesn't though). The rooftop has great scenery and decorates itself + they have one of a kind furniture you can rent to complete your laid back + stylish look.

2. Spain Ranch

Click here to see this all white barn

Fresh + clean + romantic are all words that I think of when describing Spain Ranch. When you visit Spain Ranch be prepared to fall in love. The barn is all white and clean lines. They have a space for you to have your ceremony inside or out and a reception inside or out as well. It is great for options so you can decide based off your style and the weather if necessary. While on the ranch you will see some furry creatures and may even want to take one..or two home with you.

3. Ed Lycan Conservatory

Clean lines, cactuses, and nature. What more could you ask for? Oh wait! The venue is full of history as well. There is a rotating botanical exhibits so you are guaranteed fresh scenery when you visit and for you big day. This space could be used for an engagement party, rehearsal dinner space, ceremony, or reception OR all of the above. The venue is easy on the eyes and a photographer's dream for the lighting of the space.

Laid back & rustic yet elegant is how I would describe this barn venue. The barn is an exact replica from the original that was built on the land decades ago by James and Sarah McGranahan. The venue owner's now are carrying on the family heritage the right way and are the sweetest people btw. The venue has options for an indoor or outdoor ceremony and reception along with several areas for candid photos. The venue also has a list of preferred vendors to help make the day easier + some decor rental options {umm... yes please}. 

A few other worthy venues worth mentioning would be..

The Magnolia Room • Blueberry Hill • Cole's Garden • Rosemary Ridge • The Skirvin 


Now that I have shared just a few of my swoon worthy venues it is time to start planning. Like I mentioned earlier it is part of my job as a wedding planner to help clients find their perfect venue with a swoon worthy view. I listen to what you are looking for, your budget, and your style and start planning.
