Worth More Than Gold Music Video

Marianne’s Rentals for Special Events wanted to do a little something special to assist in raising awareness and funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation associated with The Children’s Hospital at the OU Medical Center, so they approached us about making a video to do so. We suggested the music video concept similar to the Dartmouth Children’s Hospital music video. Brent Patterson from Marianne’s came up with Britt Nicole’s Gold for the song. I must say, I watched her music video of the song once and thought how are we going to turn a song about bullying into something about a children’s hospital.


I listened and listened and a storyline began to evolve. I decided to take on the story of a child receiving a bad diagnosis, showing her and other kids in the hospital, she then gets a clean bill of health to leave the hospital, we throw a party celebrating her leaving the hospital. Event pros love to throw parties you know. Mark came up with the idea of her passing off her crown to another little girl just entering the hospital. That idea brought some tears to our eyes.


Oh, did I mention I had to use Miss Oklahoma local title holders in the video too. Luckily the lyrics helped me out on that one and the title holders were GREAT with the kids. The kids loved the pageant girls and the pageant girls added a lot to the video.

Mark and I love kids and this project was such a labor of love of us. Thank you goes out to the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Children’s Hospital and staff for allowing us the opportunity to create this video. A BIG THANK YOU to all the parents, Miracle Kids, patients, pageant girls and their parents for taking the day to film the video. And special thanks to Brent Patterson of Marianne’s Rentals for dreaming up this wonderful project and for all the organization of this huge project. Keep dreaming Brent!


When all is said and done, I think we accomplished what we set out to do. To bring an awareness to what a great job The Children’s Hospital does caring for children battling illness and celebrating kids getting to leave the hospital. And no matter what they are battling, kids are worth way more than GOLD! They are our future. Whether you can give financially or give of your time to volunteer at Children’s Hospital, make a difference in the life of a child. In doing so, I can assure you it will be a life changing experience. It was for us! Mark + Trisha

OKC Wedding at the Skirvin | Scott + Tara

OKC Wedding Film

It was a pleasure to capture Tara & Scott beautiful Skirvin wedding. We showcased their Wedding Day Edit on the blog some time ago. We couldn’t resist adding their Wedding Film Highlight to the video gallery.

Click play to watch their fairy tale wedding film highlight.

So many great moments from their wedding day from the first look to all the excitement at the reception. Scott is quite the fisherman and marrying his best friend’s sister, he got a great catch in Tara. Her sister referred to her as a Disney princess. We are pretty sure Scott kissed his “Disney princess” just about every chance he got on their wedding day.

Skirvin Hilton Wedding

We pray God’s greatest blessings on their life together has Mr. & Mrs. and somehow we think that will include a few lil ones in their future years together, at least Tara’s Dad is hoping so. Wishing you a lifetime of kisses! ~Mark + Trisha
