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

Marriage-for-a-lifetime-Katie-Nick

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.

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

OKC Wedding Celebration | Carly + Shawn

Bride-Groom-OKC-Wedding

Carly & Shawn’s OKC Wedding was one to remember. Carly was so laid back and easy going and always does life smiling. Shawn loves to smile at Carly, has quite the personality and can dance like no other Groom we have seen. Carly looked like a princess in her stunning wedding gown from Warren Barron in Dallas. Shawn didn’t look too shabby either decked in with his dark suit. There are some fun moments in the ceremony with Shawn’s personality shining through, especially when the Minister asked if anyone had just cause why these two should not be married, Shawn had his dukes up. There was no stopping him from marrying the woman of his dreams.

Bride and Groom at an OKC Wedding

This OKC Wedding was beautifully designed and carried out by OKC Wedding Planner, Robyn Martin of The Wedding Belle. The Great Banking Hall at Frist National looked so enchanting. The exquisite table tops, stunning floral from The Fleuriste, all lit to perfection by Innovative Event Solutions. Guests enjoyed a plated dinner, dancing and they were wowed with a Wedding Day Edit to close out the evening. It was a Bride’s dream wedding day.

Mayo Wedding Highlight | Regan + Steven

Mayo Hotel Wedding Tulsa, OK
Regan and Steven’s Mayo Wedding was one of classic black tie elegance. They exchanged their vows in the Mayo Hotel Grand Hall and then is was off to the Crystal Ballroom for dinner and dancing. Click play to have a peek of their documentary style wedding highlight.


Our Favorite Things from this Elegant Mayo Wedding

The Groom’s cake with its black tie flair and the Bride’s cake designed to reflect her wedding gown both designed by Icing on the Top were great additions to the reception decor. The Bride & Groom’s chairs added a nice touch to their head table for their Mayo reception.

Bride's Cake and Groom's Cake

The florals for this Mayo Wedding were so eloquently done by The French Bouquet, we loved the ceremony backdrop and this statement piece at the Mayo entry was simply beautiful. We were most impressed with Regan’s thoughtful and giving heart.
It was her wedding day, but she always seemed to have the thought of others in her mind. We thought we would share a little of her thoughtfulness with this handkerchief she had made for her Mom. She also had one for her Father too. It is that character quality that will be such a wonderful compliment to her marriage.

We wish Regan and Steven a lifetime of wonderful memories as husband and wife! ~Mark + Trisha

Marland Mansion Wedding

The Wedding Belle did an amazing job designing Alison & Jason’s elegant wedding at the Marland Mansion. There was rain in the forecast for this couple’s wedding day, so they opted to move their ceremony inside to keep everyone nice and dry. Ali shared a special first look with her Dad with lots of smiles, hugs and a few happy tears. Allison & Jason chose to save their first glimpse of one another for the ceremony and it was indeed very special.

Father of the Bride First Look on the Wedding Day

Following the ceremony guests made their way downstairs to the ballroom for an elegant reception setting that fit the Marland Mansion perfectly. It looked like a banquet set for the King’s palace, with a charming sweetheart table in the middle for the Bride & Groom. The floral, décor, and cakes were all amazingly beautiful. The heartfelt toasts shared after dinner were so will be cherished memories of this special wedding day for years to come.
