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.

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.

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

McGranahan Barn Wedding | Emily + Chance

Click play to relive Emily & Chance’s McGranahan Barn Wedding day in the country. Guaranteed to warm your heart…


Emily and Chance are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. Emily has a smile that can light up a room and she was so excited to marry Chance. Chance is a cotton farmer from Altus thus the cotton boutonniere and he got bit teary as Emily made her way to the alter to meet him. They both enjoy living in a small town, their families and they really love one another. They make the cutest couple. We loved capturing their wedding day filled with so many special moments.

Bride and Groom and Wedding Cake Topper

Emily had such a vision for her wedding day. From getting ready with just her Mom and a little reveal with her Bridesmaids to the ceremony seating in a pasture, a processional that will go down in our record books. She and all her Bridesmaids walked past every wedding guest for their entrance into the ceremony. We could do a blog post on just the processional, but I will leave that for The Wedding Belle who flawlessly orchestrated this one of kind McGrahanan Barn Wedding for Emily & Chance. Their romantic Wedding Day Edit will always be one our personal favorites.

Spiral Seating for an outdoor wedding

Emily & Chance, we wish you a lifetime of adventures as you laugh with one another during the good times and even shed a tear or two through those bumps that sometimes appear in life’s journey as husband and wife. But most of all may you cherish these memories of the day you committed your lives to one another for many years to come. ~Mark + Trisha

Love is | Kristen + Doug

Love is Kristen and Doug's Wedding Film

Click play to view Kristen & Doug’s wedding film of their beautiful wedding day designed and planned by Emerson Events.

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.
~Mark + Trisha
