Marriage for a Lifetime | Katie + Nick

Reminiscing about Katie and Nick’s OKC Wedding, a few things stood out…

The Importance of Marriage for a Lifetime

First of all, Katie & Nick come from families steeped in the tradition of marriage for a lifetime. They too want to follow in their families footsteps of marriage for a lifetime. So much so, each set of Grandparents share a bit of marital advice at the close of their anniversary dance.

Celebrating the marriages of their grandparents, Katie presented each Grandma with a bouquet of flowers and asked each Grandparent for word of marital advice. They get to hear all of their wise words in their wedding film, but we chose Nick’s Grandfather’s advice for the highlight. It is sure to make you smile.

We salute Katie and Nick for the value and love they place on their family relationships. The appreciation and love expressed to their families was quite impressive.

 
 

Surprise First Dance

Katie & Nick plotted, schemed and choreographed one of the most extensive first dances’ we have seen in over twenty one years of filming weddings. To keep their first dance a surprise, while staying with Katie’s parents the month prior to the wedding, this dancing couple would practice after her parents went to bed. The surprise first dance was quite a success. Everyone loved it! Click play to see these two are quite the dancers.

Since the first dance was going to be the big event, they actually did their parent dances first. Then, followed it up with this amazing surprise first dance.

If the Shoe Fits

Lastly, Katie is a girl who loves glamour and shoes. We know a lot of girls have a love affair with Jimmy Choo, shoes. Katie wins the prize for her Jimmy Choo Cinderella Heels. They were magical! The glitz and glamour of these Cinderella Heels were the perfect fit for Katie to wear down the aisle to say her I Dos.

Jimmy-Choo-Cinderella-Slipper

Katie and her Mom made a trip to the Jimmy Choo salon in San Francisco where she discovered these stunning wedding shoes of her dreams. These sparkling gems were handmade just to size for Katie. They were quite the WOW! First pair of Bride’s shoes we have seen displayed in a glass case at the wedding reception. Her Mom says Jimmy Choo still sends her Christmas cards. Katie plans to get them out and wear them each year on their wedding anniversary. She will be walking in style for a lifetime of Wedding Anniversaries.

Gaillardia Wedding Day Edit | Sam + Jordan

As Sam and Jordan return home from honeymooning on sandy beaches with stunning sunsets, we thought it was time to share their Gaillardia Wedding Day Edit that left their guests in awe at their fabulous reception.

Sam-Jordan-Gaillardia-Wedding-Day-Edit

Sam & Jordan’s Gaillardia wedding was simply one we won’t forget. The Wedding Belle truly knocked this one out of the park. OKC had an abundance of rain the week of their wedding. It was questionable as to whether the Gaillardia Lawn would be one large puddle of water for their outdoor ceremony. But, with a lot of help from a Norman grounds crew and some water evacuating equipment, the ceremony was on their lush green lawn. And no girls lost their shoes going down the aisle. Whew!

Click play to have a peek at this sweet couple having a whole lot of fun while making some beautiful memories on their wedding day.

A Wedding Day Edit Experience

Sometimes we just get so in the routine of pulling off these wedding day edits, we forget they are such a “WOW” moment for the Bride and Groom and all their wedding guests.

As we were departing Gaillardia following the wedding, a couple waiting for their Uber ride, shared with us they had been to twelve to fifteen weddings over the past two years and had never seen a Wedding Day Edit shown at a reception. The wife began to share with us, her husband has a GoPro and does a little video editing, so he truly had an understanding of what it took to produce the Wedding Day Edit just shown and was just floored we could pull that off so fast.

We love producing them just as much as everyone loves watching them at the reception. Wedding Day Edits are just a “WOW” you have to experience to appreciate.

Just a few things worth noting.

Their love and respect for their families…

WOW Wedding Reception | Jasmine + Daniel

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.

Here a just a few of their wedding details we loved. Their Gaillardia Wedding planned by The Wedding Belle was simply luxurious. Not to mention all the Storm Trooper touches to their wedding day, cuff links, Groom’s cake and then… Who has Star Wars Storm Troopers show up to serve Gigi’s Cupcakes for a late night snack for their Wedding Day Edit preview? Just a little surprise for Shane from Natasha. And his reaction was just a priceless! Maybe just as good as his reaction to seeing Natasha come down the aisle. #tohinzandtohold
