Gold accents, blush hued florals, and lots of sweetness made up Kaleigh and Ethan’s engagement session with us. They wanted to have it reflect the theme of their wedding, and they did a perfect job finding the ideal decor to do so! Not only did Kaleigh look absolutely gorgeous in her outfits, but Kaleigh’s lovely and stunning floral arrangement by Ever Something was a wonderful addition to an already beautifully themed session. We loved how Kaleigh and Ethan would laugh with each other throughout the session, whether it was from silliness, being in front of the camera, or being lost in their own world. We look forward to capturing their special day next June!
Exquisite art deco themes, lush cream hued roses, a vintage 1958 Jaguar, Great Gatsby blue and gold tinged accents, all of these things were the essence of Courtney and Max’s elegant and stunning black tie wedding. It was truly a gorgeous affair, aptly set at the historic Meinders Hall of Mirrors, with its floor to ceiling gold gilded walls, magnificent chandeliers, and an one-of-a-kind view of the downtown skyline. The Bicentennial Garden also made a perfect pairing for where Courtney and Max made their vows to each other, with its endless greenery and the Oklahoma City Civic Center serving as a backdrop. Courtney as always looked absolutely extraordinary in her stunning wedding dress that looked seemingly made just for her, and Max was handsome in his classic tuxedo and custom cuff links. No one could have looked more beautiful and dapper than those two on that day.
Courtney and Max’s special day was the result of a chance encounter while Max was in town to train for the U.S. men’s rowing team. After meeting and then arguing over college football, the attraction was evident as Max decided to give Courtney a kiss. Their relationship blossomed from there and almost four years later Max proposed to Courtney during a surprise visit from winter training.
Words cannot express how wonderful a couple Courtney and Max are. We love the way Max looks at Courtney with endearment, how they love to do their special dip after dancing, and how Courtney lights up with a beautiful smile at the sight of Max. Throughout their wedding day, there were so many moments that proved how perfect they were together and how their loved ones would agree on that. Moments like their first look session, when Courtney received surprise wedding gifts from Max, the kisses they stole in between moments during their bride and groom portraits, their first dance, and the list goes on. Courtney and Max are truly one of the kindest and sweetest couples we know, and we cannot wait to see what many adventures and happiness their married life together will bring to them.
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Goff! (and just for them, #goffnation!)
Everything about Abbe and Cory’s wedding was breathtaking – the way Abbe looked in her dazzling custom made wedding dress, Abbe’s Jimmy Choo heels as a surprise gift from her mother, Cory looking dapper in his attire, the grand ballroom of the Mayo Hotel, and the vivid colors of their wedding party and floral design. We could go on and on.
The beauty of it all was Abbe and Cory’s love story and just how they are meant to be. They went to the same high school but did not actually get to know each other better until during college. From there the spark turned into a flame. Their love story demonstrates most of all their strong commitment to each other. Abbe had always wanted to be a professional dancer ever since she was young. However, several years ago a massive surgery did not allow her to continue that dream. With Cory by her side and the help of the local Cross Fit community, Abbe was able to regain the strength and confidence that was always within her. Abbe’s determination and Cory’s unwavering love made them even stronger together. Last year, Abbe accepted a job out of state, seemingly turning her relationship with Cory into a long distance one. However, just as they were meant to be together, Cory was able to move shortly after and be reunited with Abbe. For their special day, they were able to travel back and be married in the city where they met and that held so many wonderful memories for them.
We were so honored to document their love story from their engagement session all the way to their wedding. We loved all the laughter and smiles that Abbe and Cory’s family and friends had for them for their marriage. So many moments were beautiful and heartfelt, such as Abbe’s father getting to see her for the first time in her wedding dress, Cory and Abbe tearfully saying their vows to each other, the unique and fun parent dances, and Abbe having the time of her life at the reception, doing what she loves most, dancing. The wedding was an elegant, lively celebration of unforgettable devotion, dancing, and happiness. We wish Abbe and Cory a life full of joy and adventure!
Imagine a day filled with gold accents, lush ivory flowers, dapper suits, vintage pieces, and beautiful tributes. Caitlin and Zarquis’ wedding was an epitome of all those things. From the magnificent architecture and awe-inspiring hues of the Holy Family Cathedral, to the resounding dance floor in the dark, industrial halls of The Broadway, their special day was full of laughter, tears of joy, and sweet moments with those they loved. Caitlin was a classic beauty with her brooch crafted bouquet and moccasins. Both accessories were adorned with special memories. Zarquis looked exquisite in his cummerbund and suit. The bridesmaids dazzled in their sequined gold dresses and with the smiles they had for the bride and groom.
We loved seeing the sweet looks that Caitlin and Zarquis would steal from each other during the ceremony, as they grew excited at the idea of becoming husband and wife. Even though the rain came pouring down right after their ceremony and all throughout the evening, it didn’t damper the guests’ spirits. Creative treats for their loved ones such as a coffee bar and a doughnut stand added to the festivities. The heartfelt toasts that Caitlin’s best friend and Zarquis’ sister gave brought tears to many guests’ eyes. Caitlin and Zarquis danced and danced with their friends and family like there was no tomorrow. It was a beautiful, vintage, and eventful celebration that they will cherish.
We thank Caitlin and Zarquis for the honor to have documented their lovely engagement session last spring and then being able to capture their special day.
