I’ll Never Desert You…

An Editorial Collaboration,

Featured in the latest Southern Celebrations Magazine!


You don’t have to cross the desert to find to the beautiful chromatic desert setting here in Oklahoma; we found it nestled in a sweet little restaurant in Midtown, Oklahoma City called Barrios.



Behind a modern glass atmosphere and edgy over the top bar, the sophisticated, yet quaint patio was an unexpected surprise almost like stepping into old world history.


Large and modern, their impeccably eclectic environment was just the place where boho chic could thrive against modern desert vibes.

Barrio’s massive pink fireplace provided a sensational backdrop for our beautiful color palette of rich amber, copper, coral, cactus greens and sandy neutral chosen for our tablespace.



It was the perfect place to create a romantic at ease atmosphere in the midst of a thriving busy city. Terracotta place settings, alluring floral touches and Underwood Sparkling Rose, provided a natural base for

flanking peacock chairs and Kiah Bailey‘s meticulously written cacti place cards. Who wouldn’t want to sit down here and share a laid back, intimate dinner with their nearest and dearest?



Our Azahara lounge collection and Moroccan Poufs provided a place to kick back and stay all night chatting with your friends surrounded by succulents or if the mood hit,

you could wander deeper into Barrios huge patio to celebrate an intimate evening for two alone in the corner.



From to the perfect hand-lettered touches “I prick you!” by Kiah Bailey to the flawless natural look provided by Virgie Mae Hair & Make Up, no detail was missed. Everywhere you looked touches reminiscent of Santa Fe or Palm Springs made you feel miles away from Oklahoma.

Cacti, succulents, wood, steel, and striking black walls created the perfect backdrop for the spectacular modern cake display created by cake extraordinaire Amy Cakes.

This breath-taking cake display was a montage of elements from hand painted terracotta tiles, and real cacti to barite rose rock details.





Breath-taking in so many simple ways, Rootstock Floral took it to the next level with whimsical floral rich in texture yet seamless enough to not overpower the beautiful

gown from Chantilly Couture that was comfortable to kick it around midtown in booties, but also elegant enough for the romantic elopement awaiting. Rosie Cheeks Photography
