Since I’m obsessed with bridals (obsessed isn’t even close)…expect to see more bridals on the blog. I’m going to start off with some of my favorites from Rebecca’s beautiful bridal session that was done last February. Wow, I can’t believe its been almost a year and they will be celebrating their wedding March 16th! I have really enjoyed getting to know this beautiful girl and her family. We had so much fun at her session. I love it when brides trust me on some things; like posing and adding in the occasional fur. A week after the session I met Rebecca and her parents to view the photos from her bridal session. This will be a memory (a good one for sure) that will forever be embedded in my brain. So we were going through her photos oooing and awing….then all of sudden her Dad shouts out, “Oh that one…that one!” (his hand flies up with excitement…a cup of water flies towards my computer – I grab it…all is good). I could not stop giggling and smiling. It was seriously the sweetest thing. He was so excited about this photo of his beautiful daughter in her wedding dress (the one of her on the stairs – I also have the same photo of me at my parents house; great parents think alike). He apologized for  spilling the water…I said “I don’t care about the water, I’m more excited about how excited you are about her photos!” It was awesome to see someone so excited! I seriously love her parents, her and Joe, and their wedding! So enough rambling…here are some of my favs!

Location: Tulsa Rose Garden

Bouquet: Divine Designs by Mandy (love her)

May kicked off our crazy wedding season (we shot 14 weddings in 13 weeks from May to July). This was the last wedding of the month. We drove to the beautiful town of Ponca City. I really like this couple…maybe because we now all share the last name with no relation ;) No, they are just super cool and they are my kinda people. Their wedding was just perfect; I started off at Marland Mansion where the girls got ready and Ryan went to the chapel to be with the guys. I really enjoyed photographing Sarah with her bridesmaids. You will see below that we did the infamous “Bridesmaid’s” photo. This was my 1st time to do it so we had a lot of fun laughing and working on getting “the shot”. I went ahead and added in to try and make it look like a movie poster, haha – think I’ll just stick to photography. I loved doing their photos at the mansion, its just a stunning venue. After their ceremony at the chapel we were getting ready to head back to the mansion and it started raining while the sun was shining (rain is supposed to be good luck on your wedding day). Go figure its Oklahoma. I told Ryan to go get our umbrella out of the truck because we couldn’t let Sarah get wet (Ryan got a funny pic of that below). We finished up photos at mansion and then headed into the reception. They had a yummy cookie bar, a wooden bench for guests to sign, food, drinks, music, dancing, and a beautiful cake! This couple really likes to dance and I’m glad they did because the room was just stunning. We did the bouquet toss off the balcony which made for some interesting and fun photos. Then their family and friends sent them off for their honeymoon!

Rob and Sarah, I really enjoyed getting to know you both! You are such a sweet and beautiful couple! I wish you all the best and many blessings on all the years to come!
