Weddings

Tyler & Victoria {Tulsa St. Henry’s Catholic Church Wedding}

About a year ago now, I shot this cute little engagement session with Tyler and Vicky.  Back then, I kind of knew Tyler through my husband Matt, and just barely knew Vicky because she played soccer at NSU.  Since then, Matt and I moved down to the north Dallas area just 20 minutes from where Tyler and Vicky lived and they have become some of our funnest, closest friends here.  Over the last 9 months, we’ve hung out with them numerous times and they even visited us in the hospital when sweet little Naomi was born.  Having become such good friends, I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding last October!  Vicky had all along been sharing with me all the fun details about their day and I was so excited to get to be a part of it all.  T & V – I absolutely love hanging out with you two! You all complement each other so well and your wedding day was nothing short of amazing and beautiful, not to mention extremely fun! Seriously, BEST. WEDDING. PARTY. EVER.  I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard shooting the wedding party portraits before!  So glad we’ve become such good friends :)  Enjoy the favorites from your day!

This is Tyler surprising Vicky with the stunning diamond wedding band..

Husband and Wife!

Funnest. Reception. EVER.


Cody & Lacey {Skiatook Wedding}

This little wedding happened back in June last year, and frankly, I forgot to get it up here on the blog.  So here are my favorites from Cody and Lacey’s big day!


Seth & Mandy {Tahlequah Grace Baptist Church Wedding}

Remember Seth & Mandy? Well, a couple months back they finally tied the knot.  Their day was beautiful and full of smiles.  Seriously, one of the funnest (is that even a word?), laid back couples I’ve ever worked with.  Thank you guys for putting your complete trust in me for all your photos.  You and your families ROCK!  Here are my favorites from their day…

Seth and Mandy opted to see each other before the ceremony and planned in lots of time for photos of just the two of them…


Michael & Lauren {Tulsa McBirney Mansion Wedding}

Michael and Lauren go way back. I mean, waaaaay back.  To, like, elementary school.  He played soccer with her older brother all the way through high school, but as far as Lauren was concerned, boys were gross.  And especially her brother’s friends.  It wasn’t until they reconnected during college at the University of Tulsa that they saw something special in each other.  For Lauren, all of a sudden Michael had become this tall, dark, and handsome guy she couldn’t take her eyes off of.  And according to Michael, seeing Lauren in a TU cheerleading uniform was all it took. Oh, and he liked the fact that she loved animals :).  After dating for 4.5 years, they finally said ”I do” in front of their closest friends and family at the beautiful McBirney Mansion in Tulsa. Thank you all so much for allowing me to capture one of the best days of your lives!  Enjoy the favorites… Lauren, you look stunning in this set! Michael and Lauren were all smiles for their first look! And even though it was blazing hot outside, we got some great shots of just the two of them.. Oh my goodness, the ring bearer and flower girl were just too cute! One of Lauren’s brothers played and sang as their father walked her down the aisle…how sweet is that?! Love this photo of them after they are announced husband and wife!



Wyatt & Brittany {Tahlequah Eagle Bluff Wedding}

Just a couple weeks ago I posted the awesome bridal session I had with Brittany.  And when it came to the wedding, this girl went above and beyond!

 As she got ready in the girls cottage…

Wyatt goofed around with his groomsmen.  And to be honest, I think it took him longer to get ready… :)

They opted for a First Look which gave us plenty of time for photos around the Eagle Bluff resort..

The labels, invitations, and programs were all custom designed by the bride herself!  I was completely blown away by how amazing they all looked…

 


I loooved all the different center pieces Brittany had put together.  Each table was different, but all had a vintage flair…

She even had a kids table!  Who even thinks of that?!  Brilliant…


Christ the King Tulsa Wedding: Tom & Krisa

Tom and Krisa’a wedding was absolutely gorgeous, from the venue, to the dress, to all the little details in between.  It was my last wedding of 2010 and one of the best!  Here are my favorites from their big day…

As Krisa and her bridesmaids got ready at the church…

Tom and his groomsmen had a couple drinks at Kilkenny’s across the street…

Tom and Krisa chose to do a First Look, so we ventured around the church to find this gorgeous courtyard location…

I loved Krisa’s classic vintage look, and Tom looked quite handsome as well…

The reception took place at the German American Society, quite fitting since Krisa is part German…

Their first dance as husband and wife…

I’ll end with a photo from the toasts, which were heartfelt and obviously hilarious!


NSU Seminary Hall Wedding: Sam & Amber

Sam & Amber had a gorgeous wedding in front of one of the famous landmarks here in Tahlequah, OK, Seminary Hall at NSU.  The weather was perfect, the ceremony was short and sweet (more on that later), and the reception ended with fireworks!  I had a blast capturing their big day and here are the favorites…

I joined Amber as she got ready at her home…

Later, I caught up with the guys as they prepared…more like goofed around :)

Sam waited anxiously to see Amber for their First Look…which I LOVE!!!

I had so much fun with Sam and his groomsmen…they were hilarious!!

And Amber and her bridesmaids looked radiant…

As the ceremony was about to begin, I noticed Sam taking deep breaths and making faces like the one below.  It was pretty funny at the time how nervous he looked, and as I found out later, the officiant actually cut the ceremony extremely short because they really thought Sam was going to faint!  It was too funny!!

Another hilarious face from Sam…and I’m pretty sure Amber thought it was funny too :)

They’re married!!!
