Bold Disco-Inspired Garden Party Baumberhof Wedding

May 15, 2024 | justine

Tyle and Austin had big dreams for their wedding day. They didn’t want just any other celebration; they wanted something unforgettable. So, they devised a brilliant idea–a mix of disco vibes and laid-back garden charm. Their aim? To throw a bash where everyone could let loose and have a blast. They wanted their special day to be one-of-a-kind, leaving a lasting impression on their guests. With a unique venue, bold color palette, and show-stopping flowers and decor—that vision came to life at their Baumberhof wedding.

The couple chose a truly stunning location for their ceremony. Picture this: intricate vaulted ceilings, elegant wrought iron details, and a charming cupola made entirely of windows. To enhance the venue’s charm, they created a pathway lined with flowers leading to the altar, where they exchanged vows surrounded by love. And when it was time to party, the barn transformed into the ultimate reception space. Think vibrant pink tables, funky accents, and a dazzling disco ball installation above a checkered dance floor.

If you’re looking for inspiration to infuse your celebration with fun and personal touches, you’ve hit the jackpot with this one! Prepare to be wowed by every detail expertly of this Baumberhof wedding captured by Kelsey Justice Photography.

Colorful, Funky, Chic: Their Baumberhof Wedding Vibe

We knew we wanted our wedding to be colorful, funky, and chic, so we chose a disco-inspired garden party vibe. We gave our wedding party our vibrant, sunset-y color palette and let them have free reign with their color and silhouette. Everyone in our wedding party was the coolest, so we wanted their personalities to shine! We had our suits tailor-made at the Tailory in NYC. Austin wore an auburn suit in a retro-inspired silhouette, and I wore a black silk jumpsuit. We wanted our wedding to feel bespoke, one-of-a-kind, and intimate but also be the party of the year for our guests to enjoy. All of this came together thanks to beautiful details like our florals, custom tapestries, and dance floor, and even a London-style double-decker bus that served coffee and affogatos.

Reliving the Best Parts of Their Baumberhof Wedding Day

The rain that we were so nervous about made only a brief appearance in the morning to green the grass and give us a little luck. Our entire day was filled with music and laughter while we got ready with our family and best friends. The sun was shining, and the vibes were high. Our ceremony started at 5 pm, and our circular seating chart made everyone a part of that moment. We even had our guests say a communal vow with us. After the ceremony wrapped, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour while we wandered the Baumberhof’s stunning land to get the perfect sunset shots. Then, the reception began with our grand entrance, heartfelt speeches, and mother/son dances. We wasted no time hitting the dance floor. Our song is upbeat, so instead of the traditional first dance, we invited our guests to join us for a group dance to get the night started. We wanted our day to feel like a celebration of our love and all of the people who have loved us along the way.

Advice from the Heart: Putting Yourselves First on Your Special Day

We have so many little “favorites” from the day, but our private dance at the end of the night really stands out. It was low on our priority list. We wanted to be with our guests, so neither of us was prepared for the impact it ended up having. The last moments before our day was gone were spent with us alone in the space we had been obsessing over for more than a year, taking in all of the love in the air one more time. As two known people pleasers, we were fully prepared for wedding planning to be an anxiety-inducing nightmare. How large should it be? Will our guests like it? How will it feel to plan a wedding as a gay couple in Oklahoma? Luckily, we found our incredible planner early on, and she gave us the best advice — the day is about you, do it for yourself. When we shifted our mindset from hosting a party to being the guests of honor, everything suddenly felt so much more exciting! Our biggest takeaway is that your wedding is about your story, so you should write the pages that you would want to read. It was important that people left saying, “That felt like Tyle and Austin!” and not just that it was a fun night! We were beyond intentional when it came to colors, fabrics, looks, rentals, and so much more to ensure that we pumped as much of our personality into our day as possible.

Why the Baumberhoff Was the Ultimate Wedding Venue

We live in Chicago, but we knew we wanted to get married where our roots started, so we decided to get married in Oklahoma! After looking at several venues, The Baumberhoff was the easiest yes. The Baumberhof’s space gave us a private feel on 450 acres with two indoor options that alone are beautiful but are easily transformed into the exact look you want. Not to mention the ability to protect you from that scorching Oklahoma sun. Their team, estate, and various options made Baumberhoff a no-brainer and the venue of our dreams.
