Annie Atkinson and Henry Bodmer were born worlds apart – Annie in Tulsa and Henry in Zurich, Switzerland – but they both found themselves in New York City in the spring of 2013. A mutual friend introduced them, and their love story developed from there.
Following a year-long engagement, the couple was married at Philbrook Museum in Tulsa on Sept. 17. Friends and family from New York, Zurich and Annie’s hometown attended the elegant event. Annie looked like the essence of effortless beauty in her white gown adorned with ostrich feathers as Henry waited down the aisle. There were 12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen, and everyone watched with excitement as the bride and groom sperry-tent-and-balloonswere surprised with a Swiss alphorn. It was played on that beautiful autumn night on the lawn of the museum.
The florals throughout the occasion were done in Dutch masters style, with a pink ombre effect carried from the bridesmaids’ dresses at the ceremony to the pink cotton candy served to guests at the end of the night. Fresh flowers were used as the final garnish on the dinner plates, and annie2even some of the museum’s statues were decorated in pink flowers. The museum was washed in a vivid pink light that made for a dramatic, elegant setting.

After the band played its final song, the guests were taken to a private venue that had been transformed for the newlywed’s after party. The couple celebrated with their friends and family until the early hours of the morning.
The Bodmers honeymooned in Chile, and they plan to establish their new home in Zurich, Switzerland.

Ambience was important to the couple, who chose to hold the reception in a tent with a ceiling decorated in oversized pastel balloons. A pink ombre style tied the wedding together in every aspect – from the floral arrangements to the bridesmaids’ gowns.
