Fairytale of OKC

Designing a dream date



 


 

Typically, a gentleman might send flowers, make reservations and pick her up at 8 p.m. Or maybe, in an attempt to be creative, he’ll purchase plane tickets for an extended weekend. While potentially delightful, that’s rather unoriginal and effort-free in terms of thoughtful planning.

This Oklahoma City couple, who actually is a couple and not merely playing the made-for-print role, helped us put a more personal take on how to spend an enchanted Valentine’s Day.

Instead of dining out, Kris Murray hires chef Andon Whitehorn to create a culinary delight for Jessi Chapman in the comforts of a downtown venue he rents for the evening.

And since pictures are worth a thousand words, the story goes a little like this …

 



The couple arrives at The Caliber. Kris is wearing a CORSO denim tweed jacket; Jessi is wearing a mink fur from Koslow’s and hat from Stella Thomas Designs. Bodyguard Evan Dowers is wearing a suit by Hans Herman Tailors.
 



Kris has a drink while getting ready; he’s wearing a suit and bow tie from Hans Herman Tailors.
 



Jessi touches up her makeup; her black custom dress is by Stella Thomas Designs.
 



An intimate dinner for two is served; Jessi is wearing a Stella Thomas Designs black custom dress and Kris’ white shirt is from Ty Hirtzel.
 



This gorgeous Swarovski crystal pendant on a delicate chain is from BC Clark Jewelers.
 


The sun sets on a thoroughly enchanting evening. Jessi’s dress and fox collar are by CORSO and her horn bracelet is by Stella Thomas Designs; Kris is wearing a custom suit from Hans Herman Tailors and scarf by Ermenegildo Zegna.
