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.

Surprise First Dance Katie Nick

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.


Katie & Nick, may your home be filled with beautiful memories… and a few kids, as you live to love, honor and cherish one another in your marriage for a lifetime! ~Mark & Trisha VL

Lace & Love | Allison + Phillip


When you have a beautiful bride in a lace gown marrying the man she loves, you have a storybook wedding. To make the story even more complete both Allison & Phillip wrote each other a heartfelt note they each read before their ceremony. Tony Foss Flowers had the Palace Event Center dressed in blue florals to compliment Marianne’s burlap linens to give that touch of vintage chic. After dinner guests filled the dance floor strung in lights to celebrate the night away. We wish Allison & Phillip a lifetime of love and laughter as they begin their journey as husband & wife!

Five Oaks Lodge Wedding Highlight | Carolyn + Lee

Friends and family gathered at Holy Family Cathedral to share in Carolyn & Lee’s life long commitment to love, honor and cherish one another in marriage. Lee had the sweetest smile when he saw Carolyn come down the aisle on her Father’s arm. We loved the florals in all shades of pink from Toni’s Flowers.

Following their ceremony they departed with bells ringing for a fun filled reception at Five Oaks Lodge. Carolyn’s sister shared in her toast, she knew it must be love when Carolyn traded in her high heels for hunting boots. We produced a wedding day edit to share with guests at their reception. Hit play to share in their beautiful wedding day.

We wish Carolyn & Lee a lifetime of love, laughter and lots of hunting adventures. ~Mark + Trisha

Southern Hills Black Tie Wedding

Event Designer Talmadge Powell does nothing less than spectacular on his black tie weddings. He and his team did a fabulous job combining beauty, elegance and style into a marvelous wedding experience.  Lauren & Austin committed their lives to one another at Holy Family Cathedral and then were off to an awesome reception at Tulsa’s Southern Hills Country Club. Toni’s Flowers graced Southern Hills with an array of pink, mint green & off white florals. Everyone danced the night away to the sounds of the Soulsations from Memphis, TN. We had a great time working with Dallas photographer Stephen Karlisch. We wish Lauren & Austin a life filled with love, laughter, and great golfing as they embark upon this journey of marriage.
