Guthrie Scottish Rite Wedding | Marlee + Francis

This spring wedding season has been a whirlwind of Weddings Day Edits for us. Each having a flair of its own. Let us introduce you to Marlee + Francis with their Guthrie Scottish Rite Wedding.

Guthrie Scottish Rite Wedding Marlee and Francis

Marlee and Francis’ Guthrie Scottish Rite Wedding was simply lovely. The Guthrie Scottish Rite has such grandeur with its stately columns, sweeping archways and classic chandeliers. The Guthrie Scottish Rite Temple has a character not found in other Oklahoma wedding venues. It was the perfect setting for this elegant wedding coordinated by Gibson Events.

There was a lot of hustle and bustle prior to the ceremony as the wedding party collaborated to assemble the altar for this Guthrie Scottish Rite Wedding in the Atrium. The Maid of Honor had the honor of designing the florals for the altarpiece. Everyone pitched in and it looked beautiful for the ceremony.

The Bride & Groom had a fun surprise for their little one year old ring bearer. He was to go down the aisle in a remote controlled little red Ferrari sports car. It was oh so cute. They did a practice ride before the ceremony and all went well. The little guy wasn’t too happy about his ride in his little red sports car when the ceremony time came around, but it was an adorable wedding idea for sure.

The Guthrie Scottish Rite Ballroom looked fabulous lined with banquet style seating for the 200 plus wedding guests. All the tables lined with beautiful florals by Poppy Lane Design and their gold chargers awaited guests following the cocktail hour. The wedding cake by Amy Cakes added such charm to the overall décor with its delicate details and gold flowers.

Garden Wedding Day Edit | Haley + James

Garden Wedding at the Dallas Aboretum

Haley & James had a beautiful Garden Wedding at the Dallas Aboretum coordinated by After Yes Weddings. With all the spring flowers in full bloom, it was the perfect setting for their garden wedding. Haley & James exchanged their vows in Crape Myrtle Allee with its sweeping archway of crape myrtles and the long stone pathway for an aisle. James added a very personal touch to their garden wedding by building the magnificent arbor adorned with florals by Bows & Arrows for their ceremony. They hosted their outdoor reception at the DeGolyer Loggia at the Aboretum as guests enjoyed dinner and dancing.

While their wedding cake was amazing, we loved the Groom’s chocolate naked cake. Not to mention the cool cake topper with their names.

We were so impressed with Haley & James heartfelt letter on their wedding program to their parents, we had to share it with you. It put the wedding day in a great perspective. We so admire the love and value they place on their families.

Bookout Wedding Day Edit | Kevin + Sheri

#Bookout Wedding

Click play to have a peek at Kevin & Sheri’s Bookout Wedding Day Edit guests enjoyed viewing at their reception.


It is was my responsibility to fill Mark in on the Bookout wedding details, well I guess, I forgot to mention the Groom was a former OU Basketball player and a well-known Oklahoma athlete. Google pretty much filled in those details for Mark after someone coming for Mass asked if it was Kevin Bookout’s wedding, the OU basketball star. I also forgot to mention, Sheri was a former Thunder cheerleader too. But I must say, both Kevin and Sheri are two of the nicest, most down to earth people you will ever meet.

Bookout Wedding Day Edit

The Bookout wedding day wasn’t about basketball or all their athletic accomplishments, although his Brothers did mention them in their toasts. Their wedding day was about this special couple committing their lives to one another for the rest of their lives. The photos of their parents and grandparents displayed for their reception were representative of their two families’ commitment to lifelong marriages. Kevin and Sheri also share that same commitment.

The Bookout Wedding was filled with lots of great moments. I think both the Bride and the Groom were a bit nervous, but after they first look, a sweet calm began to rest on each one of them. This is just one of the many weddings we so loved being a part of and so appreciate their love of God, family and friends.

Kevin & Sheri, as you begin this great adventure called marriage, may you enjoy each and every day being Mr. & Mrs. Bookout! ~Mark + Trisha

Gaillardia Wedding Day Edit | Abby + Miles

Bride and Groom Gaillardia Wedding

Abby & Miles became Mr.& Mrs H this past weekend at their Gaillardia Wedding. It was simply beautiful. They choose to celebrate their wedding and reception in the Gaillardia ballroom. It looked oh so lovely dressed with organza laced chiavari chairs and charming forals by Emerson Events.

Gaillardia Wedding in the Ballroom

As guests made their way to the patio following the ceremony for a short cocktail hour, The Wedding Belle orchestrated a quick transformation of the ballroom for their elegant wedding reception. The reception décor looked amazing. We loved the Bride & Groom’s sweet heart table. Watch the amazing ballroom transformation in the Wedding Day Edit.

Gaillardia Wedding Reception

Abby shares a special bond with her parents. After slipping into her wedding gown, she shared a special first look with her Dad. Tissues were needed as they shed a few happy tears. Abby and Miles chose to save the first look for her walk down the aisle, as Miles passed Abby her bridal bouquet without seeing her.

Father of the Bride's first look

The ceremony has some fun moments as Abby’s bubbly personality came through. The kids were pretty cute too. Abby was one happy Bride to be marrying the man of her dreams. The Bride and Groom along with their friends and family so enjoyed viewing their wedding day edit shown at the reception, we couldn’t resist including their reaction to their Wedding Day Edit.

OKC Wedding Day Edit | Jami + Shane

Jami & Shane
Jami & Shane’s love story began while working at Devon. It was love after the first date. Later, Shane proposed at the Devon Tower. So when it came to selecting an OKC wedding venue, the 50th floor of the Devon Tower seemed to like the perfect choice to commit their lives to one another. It was a match made at Devon.

Their OKC wedding day was magical. Jami looked amazing in her wedding gown from Meg Guess Couture. Shane presented Jami with her bridal bouquet without seeing one another before they met at the alter. Jami’s bridal bouquet had a photo of her late Grandma attached to her flowers in remembrance of her Gram. Jami’s son, Wesley, had the honor of walking his Mom down the aisle and giving her away to Shane. He did awesome. The cutest moment of the wedding day was when Shane turn went to kiss Jami, he quickly had Wesley turn around while he kissed his Mom. Don’t miss it in the Wedding Day Edit. It was sweet and everyone had a good laugh.

The Wedding Belle had the reception sparkling in decor while guests enjoyed looking out over the night lights of Oklahoma City. Jami’s gown was made for dancing and she and Shane made a great impression with their first dance as husband and wife. Jami also shared a special dance with her son. The couple also had a room set up with games for guests to enjoy through out the evening. We closed out their reception with their Wedding Day Edit, that left their guests cheering.

Valentines Wedding Day Edit | Whitney + Trip

Trinity Episcopal Tulsa Wedding

Whitney & Trip’s Valentines Wedding was for the romantic at heart. Their romance began while attending OSU, in a writing class. So for these two OSU alums, their alma mater played a big role in their wedding day. A Pistol Pete ice sculpture and large photo of Boone Pickens stadium dressed in OSU orange was displayed on the Groom’s cake table.
When Pistol Pete arrived with guns blazing the fun really began for their Mayo Reception. The Pistol Pete appearance was a big hit for wedding guests to get a photo op with the OSU mascot.

Pistol Pete Makes Tulsa Wedding Appearance

Whitney’s love language is gift giving. She is so thoughtful of others. How fitting for a Valentines Wedding but to send those you love a special Valentine. She delivered heartfelt cards to many special people in her life on her wedding day. Trip even sent her one as well, bringing a few tears to her eyes.

When it came time for the ceremony, Trip took a deep breath as Whitney and her Dad appeared to grace the aisle at Trinity Episcopal. This was his first opportunity to see his Bride on their wedding day. I don’t think he was disappointed. She looked stunning in her ballroom gown with its sparkling bodice.

A Birth Story | Isabella Kate

Birth-Announcement

Oh, how we love weddings, but lately several of our couples have come back asking for us to capture the birth of their new arrivals. Kati and Orie are one of those couples. Well, I, Trisha film the births, and I must say it is an awesome experience to share with a family.

Happy Birthday, Isabella Kate! A year ago today, I filmed your wonderful birth story. Your Mommy was a trooper delivering you with no epidural. Breathing through all those hard contractions, of which there were many, with your Daddy right their by her side encouraging her all the way. When you appeared, she and your Daddy were all smiles and your Gema was cheering too. They were so excited to see their little girl, their princess Bella. The room quickly filled with family to catch a glimpse of you. Your big Brother, Hudson was so excited to meet you, he quickly leaned over and gave you a kiss. I get a little teary eyed watching this video of all your family coming to meet you for the first time, thinking of what a treasure this will be to you over the course of your lifetime. Your Mommy so thoughtfully had the cutest girly gift bags to give all your visitors thanking them for coming to welcome your arrival.

Your birth was filled with wonder and lots of love for you little princess Bella! Click play to view Isabella Kate’s birth story…


Snow for a Winter Wedding | Mellisa + Matthew

Bride & Groom Winter Wedding

When you plan for a winter wedding, snow can be a great addition. Mellisa said she shed a few tears of joy when she woke up to snowflakes falling for her winter wedding day. Mellisa & Matthew’s wedding holds a special place in our hearts as Mellisa has filmed a fair amount of weddings with our crew. She is a wonderful person and we are so excited for her to take this next step in life with Matthew. We have to admit we were a bit teary eyed as her Dad walked her down the aisle. She was a beautiful Bride as she and Matthew committed to love, honor and cherish one another for the rest of their lives.

When she reserved us for her wedding date, she knew without a doubt she wanted a Wedding Day Edit. She has had the joy of seeing many others relive their wedding memories at their reception and she too wanted to have that same experience. Click play to catch a glimpse of their Wedding Day Edit shown at their reception.


Just had to share a few of our favorite things… They had a Hot Cocoa Bar with lots of topping choices! Loved the pine cones on the cake! The fur stole was the perfect addition to your gown for the outside shots in the snow. It was brr…cold, but oh so worth it! Mellisa and Matthew we pray God’s blessings over your marriage as you begin your journey as Mr. & Mrs! ~Mark & Trisha

Mayo Wedding Day Edit | Sarah + Chris

Mayo Hotel Wedding Day Edit Video Tulsa OKlahoma

Sarah & Chris had a wonderful day celebrating their nuptials at the Mayo Hotel. While the guys enjoyed the OU football game, the girls enjoyed a little pampering from Glamor Artz Studio. Sarah was such a gift giver on her wedding day. Giving gifts to her parents, Mother in Law and then her Groom. She shared special moments with everyone. The Father of the Bride gave an heirloom pocket watch, given to him by his Father on his wedding day, to his Son in Law… what a special gift. Sarah and her sister jumping on the bed had to be a first. While we have put many kids on the bed to jump a Bride and her sister was a first. They had a good time for sure. When the two Mom’s missed the cake cutting at the reception, the Bride quickly assured them they could see it in the Wedding Day Edit to be shown that evening. Everyone had a great time reliving Sarah & Chris’s treasured wedding day when the big screen went up.
