Rustic Chic Oklahoma Wedding // Abby & Cooper

Let me start off by saying this wedding was an absolute DREAM. A couple months back I blogged about their engagement and now I get to blog about their sweetest wedding day! There are certain weddings I just know will be one of my favorites for the rest of my career, this was one of those weddings! My dream one day is to travel to weddings and elopements across the world, but Oklahoma weddings will always be near and dear to my heart. October weddings are some of my very favorite to capture! The weather was great also (such a plus). Their style was rustic with a bit of chic also. Everything flowed together so well and was just F U N. This day was full of tons of laughs, tears and ice cream! The bridal party was so sweet to Abby the entire day, and it was so neat witnessing all of their friendships on such a special day! These two got married at the most beautiful new wedding venue in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma at The Reserve at Emerald Falls! The flowers were done by her now mother-in-law Mindy and they were BEAUTIFUL! I love all the pops of red! The had a intimate first look alone, and it put all of Abby’s nerves to rest! (Have I ever mentioned first looks are my FAVORITE!) Such a sweet moment between your soon to be groom (or bride). If you’re getting married and thinking about doing a first look, i’d definitely suggest it! The night ended with a sparkler send off and leaving in a vintage car. Below are some of my most favorite images from the night! Congrats Abby & Cooper! So much love for my bride and grooms! XOXO

Fall Inspired Styled Shoot

Is anyone else as ready for fall as I am?! Basic girl here… I’m already lighting all the fall candles! Lol. I got the AWESOME opportunity to work with some of my awesome friends and throw together a bridal/small wedding styled shoot and it did not disappoint. We did it at Tried & True located in Tulsa, Oklahoma and used some of their awesome rentals! Big shout out to local Tulsa vendors! My sweet friend Lauren did the amazing florals, and our awesome model Alaska KILLED IT! I also found the amazing Annie May Write Calligraphy, she is so amazing at what she does! Lauren did a bridal bouquet and arrangement, and the colors are seriously speaking my love language. The dress is from Forever 21 (crazy right?!) and fit our bohemian theme perfectly! I am so stinking excited to share these photos with you that have inspired me so much for the 2019 wedding season. Feel free to share with other creatives!

Hidden Porch Oklahoma Wedding// Seth & Amy

These sweet friends of mine got married on a hot June day at the Hidden Porch in Catoosa, Oklahoma. It is the most beautiful wedding venue! It was a dream, and the sun shined so brightly on them as they said "I do". I met these two at my job, and i'm so glad they found their forever in one another. Amy was such a gorgeous bride, and has the sweetest spirit. Couples like them make me love my job, and find so much pride in shooting photos that they will have for the rest of their lives.
