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.
