If it happened that Patrick and Chandler didn’t choose us as their photographers, we would totally still want to be their friends…they are that cool! Patrick is so funny, full of energy, and a total romantic at heart. Chandler is outgoing but down to earth and an absolutely beautiful person inside and out. Seven groomsmen, seven bridesmaids, ushers, attendants, more friends, and every single one of them was as genuine and kind as this amazing couple. Seeing them surrounded by their wonderful families and by so many caring hearts was testimony to how fabulous Patrick and Chandler are. These people were the ingredients for this epic wedding! Chandler started the day off in the town of Enid where she grew up and met Patrick. The morning was spent prettying up with her girls trying not to mess up her make-up as she cried over letters they wrote for her. The day went into high gear as everyone traveled to the historical Dominion House in Guthrie, OK to finish getting ready. Chandler looked so stunning in her laced Morilee dress and I loved the long marsala dresses for her bridesmaids. They were perfect for an autumn wedding. I felt like I was on a movie set when the guys appeared in their handsome Michael Kors tuxes. The day quickly became real when these two saw each other for the first time that day. I can barely imagine the ocean of emotions that must have been washing over them. The ground was firm beneath Chandler’s feet as she took each barefoot step down the aisle. Their ceremony was definitely not just a formality. The immense significance of the day fell upon everyone in that courtyard as Patrick and Chandler in their finest dress got down on their knees and washed each other’s feet. Words cannot express the humility, service, and love they show each other. The reception in the ballroom was classy with a generous helping of a rockin’ wicked-fun dance fest. Patrick and his boys sure can dance!

    Bob Rogers - Really Great Photos of the Wedding! These really capture the ambiance of the event!

Joe and Carol are avid bicyclists and their story has always revolved around their love of biking and the outdoors. It all started when Carol bought a bike from Joe’s friend. Since Carol was new to cycling he suggested she meet up with Joe who knew all the best bike routes in Tulsa. Soon enough they had their first official date…a bike ride to dinner of course! Their love of cycling and each other continued to grow. When the time came, Joe thought the obvious spot to propose would be during a leisurely bike ride but it kept raining every day. One night they had a dinner reservation and Joe was hoping they could bike there where he could find just the right spot. Again, it was raining! The big question had been lingering in Carol’s mind too and she finally couldn’t wait anymore and asked Joe point blank why they weren’t engaged yet. Joe replied “Do you want the ring now or later?” She thought of course that he was joking but sure enough Joe dug a ring out of his pocket. He asked her to marry him and through tears she said “Yes, of course!”

Joe and Carol tied the knot at the beautiful historical Dresser Mansion in Tulsa, OK. Their whole wedding was inspired by the Art Deco era and the whole day was nothing short of glamorous. I love Carol’s Sue Wong dress and her sister’s bridesmaid dresses were so much fun too. They drew upon their engineering background for the unique Art Deco lanterns. Every table had a beautiful custom made lantern that they designed and cut at a local laser shop. The lovely ceremony backdrop was also another DIY project. The gorgeous cakes from Ann’s Bakery fit in perfectly with the decor and were as delicious as they looked. Joe and Carol are such an amazing and genuine couple. Carol is actually a good friend and old classmate from our college days so it was extra special being a part of their day. Joe is also such a kind and gentle soul and looked very sharp in his custom tailored blue suit. It was an intimate love-filled celebration with supportive family and friends followed with a killer dance party and a bicycle-bell-ringing going away.

Congrats Joe & Carol! You two are freaking awesome! Your wedding was amazing and so are your fun friends and families! I hope we see you all again soon. Thank you all for stopping by and make sure to hit ‘Like’ or leave some Love {aka comments}.

    Joan Freese Vanderbilt - These photographs are fabulous, and do a wonderful job of capturing the beauty, love and fun of the wedding. Thanks for sharing!

Ardmore is one of those quaint towns in Oklahoma where people smile at each other on street corners and wave at each other as they drive by. This friendly place was the perfect location for the wedding of such a sweet couple like Josh and Erin. After shooting their engagement photos and doing a bridal session with Erin, I was looking forward to their big day. Erin is always fun and bubbly and Josh is a laid back gentleman, a wonderful couple to spend the day with. In the morning, the girls got ready at Maria’s Garden which also provided all the flowers for the day. After getting all dolled up, Erin headed to a nearby park to see Josh for the first time that day. As Josh waited anxiously he mentioned to me how he remembered walking through that exact spot after school growing up. The whole day had that warm familiar feeling that just felt right. Soon the rest of their wedding party including their cute dog Maynard, joined in before heading downtown. I love the character of the old buildings and the Harper and Copper Rooms on Caddo Street, where the ceremony took place, embody all of that historical flair. It was a beautiful ceremony dimly lit by candles and strings of light followed by an unforgettable dance party.

Congrats Josh & Erin! You two are so kind and you had a rockin’ wedding party! Your friends and family are amazing and I hope we see you all again soon. Thank you all for stopping by and make sure to hit ‘Like’ or leave some Love {aka comments}.
