wedding-reception-surprise-spoof

We had to share a bit of wedding reception inspiration. Jasmine and Brian went to great lengths to put their wedding reception over the top! Not only was the Skyloft beautiful, their Wedding guests enjoyed a few surprises throughout the evening. Jasmine surprised her Groom with a barbershop quartet performance of Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back, taken from a Jimmy Fallon spoof. You have to watch to see the Groom’s response. It was priceless.

Wedding dreams do come true in many ways. Click play to share in Kimberly and Kyle’s romantic Gaillardia wedding, flawlessly orchestrated by Bea Penhall from About Last Night Event Planning.

ShoemakerWDEVon

A girl dreams of getting married, having a family and living happily ever after. Kimberly had all those dreams. It was just a matter of finding the man to share those life experiences. Kimberly might say it took a bit longer than she would have planned, but she would also say, Kyle was well worth the wait. She might call him her knight and shining armor or the guy who stole her heart. Either one fits him to a tee. One thing is for sure their wedding was a dream come true.

cufflinks-bridal-bouquet-bride-groom-Gaillardia-Wedding

Kimberly’s love language is gift giving. She gave Kyle heartfelt cuff links as a wedding gift (above). For their first touch prior to the ceremony, (above) they exchanged notes and wedding gifts. Kevin Paul suggested the Groom kiss the Bride’s hand before departing. Kevin is a master at photography and always a pleasure to work with on weddings. Kimberly’s Bridal bouquet (above) from New Leaf Florist was just beautiful. New Leaf has such a way with flowers (below), not only are they beautiful, but they always have a way of making the room smell amazing.

Love is in the air for Taylor and Jackson’s lovely summer evening at the McGranahan Barn as they said, “I do!” Click play to view their Wedding Day Edit, everyone enjoyed viewing at their reception.

WilkinsWDEVon-1

The McGranahan Barn was the perfect setting for Taylor and Jackson’s vintage inspired wedding day. Jackson is a country boy at heart who found himself a beautiful girl who loves to do life with him. They both come from great families. There was a lot of love and anticipation in the air as Taylor and Jackson got ready on their wedding day. They choose to keep that first glimpse of one another for the walk down the aisle. Taylor looked amazing as she graced the aisle on her Father’s arm as Jackson ever so patiently waited to see his Bride. A big smile came across his face as he caught a glimpse of Taylor coming down the aisle.

McGranahan-Barn-Wedding-Aisle-Walk-Love-in-the-Air

There is something so special about weddings as two people surrounded themselves with their closest family and friends to commit their lives to one another. We loved this birds eye view of the wedding party during the ceremony at the McGranahan Barn.

McGranahan-Barn-Wedding-Ceremony-Love-in-the-Air

Amy Ray Events did a wonderful job of orchestrating every detail of this charming country wedding. We loved the whimsical florals from Birdie Blooms. Taylor and Jackson’s custom cake topper was just about as cute as them feeding one another that first bite of wedding cake. Let’s just say, Jackson got the first bite of cake and might not live that one down for a while.

All About Family | Katie + Nick

There are so many things I could share about Katie & Nick’s wedding weekend celebration that was truly all about family. Both of their families, bleed OSU orange in a BIG way! Did we mention everyone, (except us) wore OSU orange for the rehearsal dinner. We didn’t get that memo. At their rehearsal dinner, they shared their story of how they met while at OSU and since we caught it on film, we just had to work it into their Wedding Day Edit. Click play to catch a glimpse of Nick & Katie’s memorable wedding day!

WoodruffWDEVon
 

Once Katie got engaged and began to plan her wedding, she had a wedding wish… Yes, she wanted a beautiful wedding gown and it had to be dancing friendly for their surprise first dance. She also wanted a sparkly pair of wedding shoes by Jimmy Choo. And sparkle they did!

Jimmy-Choo-Cinderella-Slipper

But her greatest wedding wish, was that she and Nick’s family could travel from near and far to share in their wedding day. You see only Katie’s parents lived in OKC, everyone else would be traveling to OKC to attend their nuptials. So you might say OKC Destination Wedding. They had shared with us the importance of family and how the marriages of their parents and grandparents were such an inspiration to them. Katie got her wedding wish. Because their beloved family and friends came from near and far to share in their wedding celebration filled with happy tears, a few surprises, and lots of dancing.

Its-all-about-Family-Wedding

Katie & Nick, you are off to a great start and oh, they places you will go. We can’t wait to see. May you two enjoy dancing through life as Mr. & Mrs. as much as you enjoyed your surprise first dance!

Surprise-First-Dance-Katie-Nick

There will be good times and a few bumps along the way but one day may your marriage be the inspiration to your children and grandchildren of what it looks like to be married for a lifetime as all those in your family have done for you. Hugs to you both! ~Mark + Trisha

Fun, Family & Love | Jasmine + Brian

Jasmine & Brian’s wedding day was filled fun, family and a lot of love. Click play to view their Wedding Day Edit that left guests in awe at their downtown Tulsa reception.

DanielsWDEVonWeb

It isn’t often we do a wedding of someone we know. Or in Jasmine’s case, we have known her since she was a little girl. She was a spunky, outgoing little girl too who liked to sing. As she grew a little older, she liked to dance and that love of dance has definitely carried over into her adult years. She and Brian’s first dance was quite impressive and had wedding guests cheering, yes it will be a must share in the future. Jasmine also surprised her Groom with a barbershop quartet & herself singing Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back let’s just say, he loved it!

Just a few special moments and pretty things to inspire…

Jasmine entered the church alone, her biological father is deceased. It was a sweet moment when the doors opened to see her their alone with her blusher in place. She was met part way down the aisle by her Mom and step Dad to give her away at the end of the aisle.
Trinity-Episcapol-Tulsa-Wedding HUGE florals lined the aisle of the church it was beautiful. Did I mention Jasmine’s Mom does floral and catering for weddings and events and she did a wonderful job pulling all this off while being Mother of the Bride. Emeline, I salute you.

Every napkin was embroider with the guest’s initials, such a nice personal touch.

The cake made for a part of the reception decor and was displayed in the center of the dance floor for guests to swoon.

Jasmine & Brian it was such a joy to capture your wedding day filled with fun, lots of family, a whole lot of love and maybe a lil food & drink in there. May your love for fun, family and one another grow with each passing year. ~Mark + Trisha

Beautiful Moments |#abeyewedding day edit

first-dance-okc-wedding

Moments come and go, but beautiful moments remain with us for a lifetime. Wedding days are filled with beautiful moments. Moments shared with whom a couple holds most dear. We love capturing these special memories and our clients love reliving them again and again. April & Shehan’s wedding day was filled with laughter, fun, excitement, beauty and most importantly love. Love of life shared with family and friends.

We thought we would share a few images from some special moments we captured that pulled on our heartstrings. April shared a private moment with her parents on her wedding day after she had slipped into her wedding gown. Their reactions to seeing April in her gown left them all smiles to begin celebrating her wedding day.
First-Look-with-parents-on-your-wedding-day

April was so happy to be marrying the love of her life. Shehan was so nervous but also thrilled to have April at his side. They exchanged notes and the Groom presented his Bride with her Bridal bouquet with a sightless first touch. Tears were flowing freely for this beautiful moment and April’s expression when she first saw her bouquet was priceless.
sightless-note-exchange-on-your-wedding-day

There is something special about parent dances on a wedding day. It is a time set aside to honor your parents and also show them appreciation for all they have sown into your life. These images of April with her Father and Shehan with his Mother are reminder of the love shared with a Father and his daughter and a Mother and her son.

Parent-Dances-Gaillardia-Wedding

April & Shehan, may you make many more beautiful memories as Mr. & Mrs. and look back one day when you are maybe old and gray with a fondness in your heart of the beautiful moments you made on your wedding day and how you shared it with the ones you love and hold so dear. ~with a few tears, Mark + Trisha

For all of Your Tomorrows | Julia + Jiss

no-peeking-first-touch-wedding-day

Julia and Jiss’s Wedding Day Edit is for the romantic at heart. Jiss proposed at a castle. Julia looked like a princess in her ballroom gown. They had a special sightless moment. They said their I Dos on the Gaillardia lawn at the foot of a gazebo draped in gold fabric. OKC Wedding Planner, Robyn Martin, of The Wedding Belle had every detail taken care of to give Julia and Jiss the wedding of their dreams. As the minister asked the Groom, “Jiss, do you promise Julia, that you will love her today and for all of your tomorrows?”, what a wonderful way to phrase that question. All of your tomorrows. Who are you giving all of your tomorrows?

Click play to watch their Wedding Day Edit that left their guests in awe filled with elegance, fun and romance.

 

Just a few of things we loved about Julia & Jiss’s romantic Gaillardia wedding day.
Every guy wants to be a superhero, especially on their wedding day. The Groom and his Groomsmen had some fun with their superhero t-shirts and cufflinks.

Groom-Groomsmen-Superheroes

Everyone enjoyed watching the portrait artist, Kelly Kimbrough work his magic through his painting of the couple’s first dance at their wedding reception. The painting came to life throughout the evening as he added more and more details from their reception.

OKC Rooftop Wedding Day Edit | Amber + Prentice

Click play to catch a glimpse of Amber & Prentice’s OKC Rooftop Wedding Day Edit.


Yes, it was a room with a view, or should we say a rooftop room with a view for Amber and Prentice’s OKC wedding designed by The Wedding Belle. The rooftop was the perfect ceremony location with a gorgeous view of downtown OKC. Due to the size of the ceremony venue, they had to limit their guest list for the ceremony, but friends joined them for cocktails, dinner and dancing at their elegant Sheraton Atrium Ballroom reception in downtown OKC. Which made their Rooftop Wedding Day Edit, a great bonus for all the guests who could not get to attend the ceremony to catch a glimpse of their heartfelt wedding vows.

Rooftop-Wedding-With-A-View-of-Downtown-OKC

The Atrium Ballroom was glistening with silver metallics, a touch of gold and crystal trees. It was amazing. Gold chiavari hairs with silver bows accented with sequin broaches. The Wedding Belle never ceases to amaze us with exquisite wedding decor. The Bride and Groom had a sweetheart table facing their guests to take it all in.

OKC-Wedding-Reception-Sheraton-Downtown-The-Wedding-Belle

While both the Bride and Groom shed a few happy tears throughout their wedding day, as they danced their first dance as husband and wife, they were in their happy place, in one another’s arms. May that always be a place of strength, peace and love throughout their marriage.

Devon Tower Wedding Day Edit | Rodney + Kristin

It isn’t often we have a couple who have known one another for twenty-five years. They dated a bit back then and then went their separate ways. But somehow their paths crossed again. Rodney had some concert tickets, invited Kristin to go. Well, let’s just say love has blossomed this time. Music concerts have played quite a role in their budding relationship, thus a proposal at a concert. Rodney on one knee asking Kristin to be his lifelong partner as they journey through life. And she said, “YES!” So where else better to seal the deal than at the Devon Tower, with their ceremony in the garden at sunset and the reception fifty stories up overlooking the lights of Oklahoma City.

Devon-Tower-Wedding-First-Look

Rodney and Kristin exchanged letters just before their special first look on the staircase in The Devon Tower rotunda on their wedding day. Truly a special moment.

Click play to view Kristin & Rodney’s Devon Tower Wedding Day Edit that had guests cheering at their reception.

The sun was just setting on this fall evening for this Devon Tower Wedding in the garden as Rodney & Kristin committed their lives to one another before family and friends. Rather than your typical Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, Kristin had her brother and two nephews stand up with her and Rodney had his two brothers and two nieces stand up with him. Making it very much a family affair.

Devon-Tower-Wedding-Rodney-Kristin

Rodney & Kristin, what a fabulous Devon Tower Wedding! As you begin this adventure as Mr. & Mrs. Lipe, we wish you a lifetime of beautiful music together. May you always enjoy the journey! ~Mark + Trisha

Romantic-Gaillardia-Outdoor-Wedding
Surrounded by family and friends, Kelley and Garret had a beautiful wedding day orchestrated by OKC Wedding Planner, Robyn Martin of the The Wedding Belle. The Gaillardia Country Club looked simply romantic adorned in gold, ivory and a touch of blush. Their romantic wedding day edit is filled with touching moments from throughout their wedding day, from Kelley’s first look with her Dad and Brother, she and Garret’s sightless first look and note exchange, to her walk down the aisle to meet the love of her life.

Just a few things we loved about Kelley & Garret’s wedding day.
Something old something new, something borrowed… Kelley borrowed her Mother’s sixpence she wore in her shoe on her wedding day.

Family-Memories-on-your-wedding-day

A wedding day is about joining two families to make a new one. Both Kelley and Garret come from strong families who have set a wonderful example for them to follow. It was so special to see the Bride’s family circle in prayer on their daughter’s wedding day one last time before Dad walked Kelley down the aisle.

Kelley & Garret, as you begin your happily ever after, may you cherish the memories you share together as husband and wife and always enjoy looking back on the day you became Mr. & Mrs. Gann. Here’s to building a long and happy marriage one day at a time! ~Mark + Trisha
