If you tell me there’s going to be pizza and tacos involved in your wedding day, then say no more—I’m automatically in and I’m going to make you look like the most attractive pizza-eating couple there ever was. Not only did Bailey and Blake have the all-time best street food and the most mouthwatering dessert at their OKC wedding at P. Alice; but they also had the most charming vintage decor, a jewel-toned color palette, an abundance of small touches that showcased their unique love story, AND a killer group of guests that was ready to love & support them so hard. Oh, and I can’t forget about the massive charcuterie platter full of cheese, crackers, sausage, and veggies, because you know I love some good cheese 😉
Bailey + Blake’s Vintage OKC Wedding at P. Alice
An intentional day brimming with personal touches
Weddings are automatically just beautiful and oh-so-special on their own, but when a couple takes the time to incorporate personal, meaningful touches that reflect their unique personalities & relationship, it really kicks the emotions up a notch. Bailey and Blake went into their day knowing they wanted it to feel so wholly, undeniably them, and it showed through every little detail they put their time & energy into.
One of the pieces I loved most from Bailey and Blake’s wedding day was the ceiling display of hanging flowers that she and Blake literally DIY’ed—I mean, do you see those adorable stems hanging down over them as they made their grand entrance?! It was such a simple way to add extra florals into the space without it being overwhelming, or clashing with any of the other decor/floral arrangements. I’m such a fan of hiring planners and expert vendors to help you create your dream day, but who says you can’t also add a little DIY in the mix to save some dough?
And another fun idea that these two came up with: these two literally brought their own house plants to decorate the space! This was honestly so genius; P. Alice is a stunner of a space on its own, but Bailey and Blake brought a little more life to it with the vibrant greenery from their own home.
Bailey also had a very personal, special touch added to her bouquet: a charm that held some of her dad’s ashes. This was a really beautiful and simple way to honor her dad’s memory throughout the day and to have him close to her heart while they celebrated.
We can all go to Pinterest and save hundreds of inspo pics to our wedding boards, but it’s just different when little touches like these are spread throughout the day to add another level of meaning, you know?
Vintage charm & eclectic decor galore
Let’s dig into one of my favorite aspects of Bailey and Blake’s P. Alice wedding: the vintage theme and unique, eclectic details + decor that they had spread out throughout the space. Their vision for the day was for it to be warm, lively, and stylish, featuring a color palette of navy and terracotta with touches of dusty blue and baby blush pink. They incorporated these colors into every detail of their outfits as well as their ceremony and reception, with Blake sporting a deep navy suit + a pink floral bowtie, and Bailey carrying around a bouquet bursting with shades of pink & orange.
And whew, did these two put together the most fire details I’ve ever seen! Brimming with blues & oranges, and accented by velvet and chiffon textures, it was wayyy too easy for me to create a gorgeous setup with their stationery, rings & ring boxes, jewelry, florals, and extra vintage touches such as an old camera plus a lace handkerchief. Every little detail was so elegant and graceful, especially the chunky jewelry Bailey wore to go with her velvet blue shoes, and I was also obsessed with her gorgeous beaded pearl veil.
Now to gush over the charming vintage elements that Bailey and Blake added into their day, starting with a pair of old viewfinders. Blake took these viewfinders and retrofitted them with slides that showed photos of him & Bailey together so that guests could go through some of their favorite memories during the reception! He also took an old rotary phone and made it so that guests would be able to pick up the phone and record a message for them to listen to later. Seriously, these two are so creative and crafty and I loved how they invited their guests to celebrate them in such unique ways!

A day full of smiles, good food, and stunning views
Alright, enough about the fabulous decor and details for now—let’s talk about the day itself! After getting ready and putting on their wedding attire, Bailey and Blake had the most amazingly sweet first look together, in front of a wall of massive paned windows that let in some soft, gorgeous natural light as these two stood on a gorgeous red & blue rug. First looks are always the part of the day that makes couples really realize that the day is finally here, and gives them a sweet, private moment to bask in allll the emotions before meeting back up with loved ones.
They moved up to the top of the venue for a rooftop ceremony, ready to tie the knot beneath the sunny blue sky and with absolutely beautiful views of Oklahoma City behind them. I fell in love with the wooden arbor they chose to serve as their altar, covered in asymmetrical floral arrangements that took my breath away. Those massive yet soft pink roses paired with that lush greenery draping down so elegantly? Obsessed. Even as the clouds rolled in during their ceremony, Bailey and Blake excitedly exchanged their vows and officially became Mr. and Mrs. Stejskal.
The reception that followed was one of the most killer parties I’ve seen yet: not one, but TWO food trucks (tacos and pizza!), cupcakes, and a hot dance floor—what more could you ask for? I loved getting to see everybody enjoying themselves with the newlyweds, from the dinner tables to the dance floor and all the way to the sparkler exit at the end of the night! Oh, and those pizza portraits of Blake and Bailey (who was rocking the cutest heart-shaped sunglasses)? My faves. I’m still in love with this day and am so glad I got to be a small part of it.
