OKC Wedding Day Edit | Rachel + Carson


It’s funny how we never tire of filming weddings. It is such a privilege to witness two becoming one in marriage. Rachel & Carson had a beautiful wedding day that began at Crossings surrounded by family and friends.

Every wedding has a first and this was the first wedding we ever saw all the guys crowd in front of a mirror to pose for a selfie. They said it was a wedding tradition they had to keep going. Rachel was all smiles before the ceremony. She and her Bridesmaids squeaked out some time to put a 500 piece puzzle together while getting ready. They said I had to film it. I recall hearing some cheers when it showed up in the Wedding Day Edit.

While Rachel and Carson chose not to see one another before Rachel walked the aisle to meet Carson, they did exchange notes with one another. Rachel eye’s did swell with a few tears after reading Carson’s note. Rachel’s smile never dimmed the entire day, it truly is something special about her. We loved Carson’s reaction to his Bride as the doors opened for her during the ceremony. He took some deep breaths as she and her Dad made their way down the aisle.

Carson’s Father had the honor of officiating their wedding ceremony adding a very personal touch to their wedding day. Rachel and Carson come from wonderful families and share a deep faith in God. May their faith continue to guide them throughout their lives as they journey as husband and wife.

Gaillardia Wedding Day Edit | Abby + Brian

Click play to share in Abby & Brian’s Gaillardia Wedding Day Edit shown at their reception!

When it is 90 plus degrees and the humidity is running high, we do a little happy dance when a Gaillardia Bride wants to get married indoors. I think the guests really enjoyed the cool comfort while celebrating indoors. We weren’t the only ones happy at Abby & Brian’s wedding. Abby & her Mom had a little surprise for everyone once the Minister pronounced Abby & Brian man and wife. The wall behind the couple opened with a gospel choir dressed in white robes singing “Happy”. With the sun rays beaming in through the windows behind the choir, they had an angelic glow about them. It was a great surprise and it definitely had everyone’s attention.

As guests sipped on cocktails following the ceremony, The Wedding Belle and her team of wedding pros flipped the Gaillardia ballroom from a ceremony setting to an elegant reception for dinner and dancing in record time. Check it out in the Wedding Day Edit, I promise they really do move just that fast.

A few of our favorite things from Abby & Brian’s Gaillardia Wedding

Abby’s lace gown and her bridesmaids gowns. Abby had a rememberance from her deceased Father sewn into her wedding gown close to her.

We loved her Bridal bouquet by Tony Foss Flowers. Abby is a cat lover, her cat cut out escort cards were just too cute!

Abby & Brian, we wish you a lifetime of “Happy” songs as you enjoy life as Mr. & Mrs! ~Mark + Trisha

Love is | Kristen + Doug

Love is…

I Corinthians 13 is one of the most popular wedding scriptures. It was among the scriptures read at Kristen & Doug’s wedding. But there was an overwhelming thought conveyed regrading what love is. Love is a choice. Love is not based on how your are feeling or your emotions, but a choice. A choice to love one another each and every day of your marriage. It isn’t always easy to be patient, kind, to consider your spouse or not be easily angered when they do something that irritates you. But when we do, we will be protecting our marriage for a lifetime. This message came through loud and clear on their wedding day. God’s love is always a strong foundation from which to build a life long marriage. So when the storms of life come, we can be firmly committed to one another in love.

I Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is

Kristen & Doug, We loved capturing your wedding day, it was inspiring. As we re watched your Wedding Day Edit, Mark and I were both moved. God has a plan and it is bigger and better than you two could ever dream. We look forward to watching it unfold in your lives. True love is something to be cherished, may you remain forever in perfect love.

Family Traditions | Emmalee + Ben

Groom Gives Bridal Bouquet

It was just a year ago to the day, we were capturing Emmalee and Ben’s engagement party. And now a year later, it is their wedding day. Their wedding day steeped in their heritage and family traditions designed and orchestrated by The Wedding Belle. They were both so excited to marry one another. Emmalee and Ben put so much thought into the details of their wedding day. While their love for one another shown through, it was their thoughtfulness and compassion for others that captured our hearts.

Emmalee’s Dad could hardly wait to see his sweet daughter in her wedding gown. He had purchased her an heirloom to wear on her wedding day, a pearl bracelet. He was so excited to give it to her. As a child Emmalee’s Dad always sang the song Edelweiss to her. Well Edelweiss is also a very delicate flower. Emmalee asked The Fleuriste to make her Father a special boutonniere from Edelweiss. As she gave him the boutonniere, she shared the memory of him singing to her as a child. As she spoke the words, he said maybe we could dance to that this evening. And yes, Wade Tower sang it beautifully as they waltzed for their Father Daughter Dance to Eldelweiss.

Father of the Bride and Bride exchange gifts on daughter's wedding day

Mark was quick to share how Ben distributed his gifts to all ten of his Groomsmen and shared something special about each one of them in the Groom’s room. But the single yellow rose in every floral arrangement caught our eye and had us asking why the single yellow rose. It was in honor of Ben’s late Father, who always included a rose in every bouquet of flowers he had given to Ben’s Mother. He must have been smiling from heaven at Ben’s thoughtfulness to carry on his tradition on his wedding day with the single yellow rose in his memory.


Ben you are the handsome prince, who married your one and only princess, Emmalee. May your love and thoughtfulness grow and flourish with each passing year as you & Emmalee carry on your family traditions and values. We hope the two of you will also add a few new family traditions as well. Wishing you nothing but lots of love and kisses! ~Mark + Trisha
