Wil ♥ Amber | Stillwater Wedding Photography

Sneak peek time! Wil & Amber have this wonderful confident playful attitude that spills into everything they do and the world simply brightens up around them. At the start of their wedding day, I was quickly brought back to their adorable engagement session. I remember Wil had lost his keys during the session. They could have been anywhere but we backtracked as expected and quickly found them laying in the grass. Such luck! And that same feeling constantly surrounds these two. Their love for one another seems to ripple out into the universe and everything just falls into place. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for a wedding.

Dutch ♥ Lauren | Oklahoma Wedding Photography

Lauren and Dutch had such a beautiful wedding. Yes, they are an undeniably handsome couple but it was the simple things that made it so special. They wanted to get married at a beautiful church, which happened to be the one they normally attend, First United Methodist in Cushing. They kept it a close-knit affair surrounding themselves with the most important people in their lives. And the reception at Cushing Country Club was laid-back and pleasant with everyone mingling since they all know each other. From the beginning to the end, you could tell how important family and friends are to Lauren and Dutch. Before they left, it was so sweet how they offered to open any of the guest’s gifts so that they could thank them in person.

Jarrod ♥ Kayla | Oklahoma Wedding Photography

We always look forward to weddings out in Woodward, OK. The drive out towards the Oklahoma panhandle is always pleasant. The land flattens out and you can see otherworldly land formations just out in the distance. The landscape is beautiful, the air seems a little fresher, and the people seem a bit friendlier and laid-back. It was the perfect place for the close-knit wedding of this kind-hearted couple, Jarrod & Kayla. I love that the wedding party was small, a maid-of-honor, a best man, a flower girl, and a ring bearer…a careful selection of the important people in their lives. The morning started off at Reflections Salon with all the girls including mom. Erica and Whitney Long did a fabulous job with hair and make-up respectively. After getting ready, we all headed out to Boiling Springs State Park with the wedding party for their first glance and some portraits in the park.

I will admit that I can’t forget the heat that day, it was a scorcher. I’m sure everyone was happy that Kayla picked out light airy tones of ivory, mint, and coral. The bouquets from The Bloom were just as bright and happy with fun additions of succulents. I love Kayla’s lacy Mori Lee dress, a perfect summer wedding gown in my opinion. She looked absolutely radiant!

Logan ♥ Molly | Guthrie Wedding Photography

We have a lovely wedding sneak peek to share! This past weekend, rain showers greeted the wedding party as they started their day but you would never have known it from their chipper faces. And no rain cloud could dull the beautiful old world charm of the historical Sand Plum Event Center in Guthrie, Oklahoma’s original capital city. The wedding day details would not have been this perfect without their stellar pick of vendors including hair and make-up in the morning by Artistic Glam, all the whimsical florals by Cole Dewey Designs, a delicious towering cake by Rosebeary’s Designs, killer beats by M&M Productions {I actually really liked the music at this wedding}, and video expertise from Jantzen Gray at Gray Matter Film Co. Here’s a snapshot of this kind couple, Molly and Logan, on their fabulous wedding day.

Richard ♥ Ruby | Tulsa Wedding Photography

Sneeeeak peeeeek! This past weekend we shot the most perfect Labor Day weekend wedding we could have possibly asked for. From the very beginning to the very end, it was a heart-squeezing, moving celebration! We showed up early that morning at the house that Ruby grew up in to watch her get ready with all the girls. Even just entering the house made my heart melt. Every corner was stuffed with memories, and knick-knacks, and handmade art. I felt like Alice in Photographerland. The whole day just got better from there. There was no drama. It was just pure joy and relaxation. Ruby obviously put a lot of careful thought into each detail of the wedding keeping everything simple, beautiful, and meaningful but it was the genuine caring looks on everyone’s faces that made the day so very special. Ruby and Richard, we will never forget your wedding day.

Jarrod ♥ Kayla | Oklahoma Wedding Photography

From the girls getting ready at Reflections Salon to the beautiful sunny ceremony and soon-to-follow dance party at Woodward Conference Center, Jarrod and Kayla were cool-headed and simply enjoying the day. It was definitely a hot August day in Oklahoma but the sunshine was beautiful and the brightly coloured bouquets from The Bloom and ivory tuxes for the boys kept the wedding party looking lively. Kayla looked absolutely radiant in her Mori Lee dress along with hair and make-up by Erica and Whitney Long. There were so many fun little details, a delicious cake by The Cake Lady, and rockin’ jams thanks to Jamie Green kept guests dancin’ late into the night.

Brent ♥ Rachel | Tulsa Wedding Photography

The day started early at Beyond Salon in Tulsa with just Rachel and her Mom. It’s actually one of my favourite parts of the day. You can feel an energetic hum building in the air as the universe waits in anticipation for this very special day. But at the same time a calmness {possibly the calm before the storm, lol} where you can just enjoy the feelings surrounding the day. And it was wonderful seeing how close Rachel is with her mother. After Lindsey Donahue did a fabulous job with their hair, we left to meet up with everyone at the Dresser Mansion. Her Maggie Sottero gown was absolutely gorgeous and I love love her Tom wedges! You get both the height and comfort.

Rachel was so lucky to have such a talented group of bridesmaids. Ashley Dee Davidson did a beautiful job doing make-up for all the girls in the morning. On top of that she created all the neat chalkboard signs for the wedding. And she’s actually able to to rent the boards out to other brides. How cool!

One of the highlights of the night was what best can be described as “the shoe game”. They took off their shoes and while sitting back to back they each exchanged one shoe with the other. They were asked questions that best describes one of them and they answered either “Brent” or “Rachel” by lifting up the corresponding person’s shoes to see how well their answers matched. It was fun to watch especially since Rachel wore a stellar pair of cowboy boots!

Emily | Stillwater Portrait Photography

Happy Monday friends! We just recently posted Jake & Emily’s lovely wedding on the blog this past Friday, so I’m way beyond excited to be posting her Bridals today. Weeeee! ♥ From the very first moment that we met Emily a few years back when she was a bridesmaid for a wedding we were shooting, we saw how awesome of a person she was. She was doing bridesmaid duties at its best, all smiles and keeping everything in its place and everyone on schedule. We kept in touch after that day and she told us that she was getting married in two years time and would love to use us for her wedding. And sure enough she did! I love everything about Emily…the spark of happiness in her eyes, her contagious laughter, her kind heart, her gracefulness, and her full trust with us on capturing her beauty and most of all her special day. Such a beauty, inside and out. She’s definitely one of my favourite people to photograph.

Jake ♥ Emily | Stillwater Wedding Photography

The morning was fun and leisurely with all the girls getting ready at University Heights Baptist Church here in Stillwater, OK. There were lots of delicious goodies and even more laughter to go around. I’d seen Emily’s Mori Lee wedding dress previously during her bridal session {posting soon!} but it’s always a delight to see. Light and airy, perfect for a princess which Emily easily looked the part. And her Antonio Melani bejeweled sandals were so cute. I love it when a bride picks out a pair of flats for her wedding cuz you know she’ll be able to party through the whole day. And for something blue…a pack full of blue Skittles!

Chelsie Klein from Salon Lakota styled up some amazing dos and Sarah Breshears did a marvelous job on make-up. The day looked pleasant with a few clouds rolling in. However, it was about halfway through the morning that one of her bridesmaid’s tapped me on the shoulder and showed me a radar image on her phone. It was a mother of a storm coming in fast. So, we planned the morning to keep the wedding party close to the church. The funny thing is that I remembered dodging rain storms during their engagement session as well. The coolest part is that both times Jake and Emily trusted that everything would work out fine. With that attitude, it would.

Such a pretty bouquet by Toni’s Bloomers. I love how Emily’s yellow flowers with that hint of purple looked so happy, almost as happy as Emily. Those billy balls always make me smile.

There were some pretty trees outside the church, so I’m so glad were were able to do their first glance outside. But halfway into their couple photos the sky opened up and we were hit by the most terrific rainstorm. We moved everything inside. Thunder shook the building and even the lights flickered a bit. I looked at Jake and Emily and they were all smiles. It was obvious they had already decided it was going to be a good day.

When people harken back to Jake and Emily’s wedding there will be one very special moment that will stand out among the rest. During the ceremony Emily’s dad took the stage and sang the most touching song to his daughter. Truthfully, I was fighting to keep my eyes from welling up so that I could capture those moments. And then soon after, still getting over that emotional moment, one of Emily’s bridesmaid’s excused the pianist and she played and sang the most beautiful song to the newlyweds. It was a truly wonderful ceremony to attend.

My jaw dropped and my mouth started watering as soon as I saw her table of wedding cakes {yes, plural!} at their reception at the Wes Watkins Center. Such a cute and rustic spread and the cakes themselves by Amy Cakes were moist and delicious. Mmmmm…goblets filled with melt in your mouth wedding mints! Almost reason alone to attend a wedding. Then the groom’s cake…I saw some people raise an eyebrow at it. Really? Never heard of Dr. Who? Kudos to Jake as it’s one of Scott’s favourite shows growing up. It was a grand reception bursting with guests, lots of dancing, and games for the kids.
