LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT Rachel and Bobby met through one of Rachel’s bridesmaids who was dating Bobby’s best friend. When they met, they both had just gotten out of serious relationships, but their connection was something you couldn’t deny. Rachel and Bobby they’ve been dating ever since the day they met, because they were absolutely inseparable from that day on.

BOSTON BOUND As Rachel and Bobby began dating, they started to realize lots of strange coincidences the two shared. One of the

biggest ones they found was that they could both trace their ancestry back to colonial times in Boston. Last Fourth of July, Bobby took Rachel on a trip to celebrate America at the famous Boston harbor. Excited to go, Rachel had no idea that Bobby was planning his own fireworks for the trip. They spent one of their days strolling through the Boston Common, and as the enjoyed the scenery, he got down on one knee and asked Rachel to be his wife. In their engaged bliss, the two even found a local artist selling original watercolor paintings of the exact spot where Bobby had proposed, so they purchased it to forever commemorate the moment. www.okcweddingideas.com

GRANDMA’S RING While trying to throw Rachel off of his proposal track, Bobby had convinced Rachel that her grandmother’s wedding ring had been lost. All along, Bobby was having it completely redone to create something unique and with tons of sentimental meaning for Rachel.

SOMETHING BLUE Being a lover of heels and Sex and the City, Rachel knew that she wanted a real showstopper for her wedding shoes. While searching for another pair of heels, this spectacular pair of beaded Badgley Mischka heels in the most vibrant shade of cobalt blue caught her eye, and she knew they had to be the ones.

STORMY WEATHER On the day of their wedding, in true Oklahoma fashion, the state was plagued by tornadoes. Not wanting to worry or take away from the couple’s big moment, both families made sure to keep an eye on the weather and ensure that the bride and groom were none the wiser. 18

always ALWAYS FEELING LIKE she was born in the wrong decade, Amanda has always admired the beautiful and sweet style of the 50s and 60s, so when it came time to choose a style for the wedding day, it was a no-brainer. Wanting to incorporate both the glam and classic chic of that era, Amanda looked to find unique details that embodied the time period. Not only did she want the décor to be reminiscent of that time, she also wanted to look the part. Wearing a perfect little white dress, paired with white floral heels, she looked just the part. Amanda met Tim through her roommate, and when she first laid eyes on him she knew it was something special. Making sure she was always around when Tim came by, Amanda began to get to know him and their friendship bloomed. After a year of friendship, the two realized their feelings were something stronger and they began to finally date. In six short months, Tim knew this was more than the average relationship, and he was ready to pop the big question. On a night of a meteor shower, Amanda and Tim made plans to head out on his family farm and enjoy the stars. As they got ready to leave, Tim was insistent that he needed to change into pants that had pockets, which Amanda thought was odd, but she brushed it off and the two headed out into the night. As they laid in Tim’s truck

bed watching the meteors fly by, Tim asked Amanda to be his wife and pulled out a beautiful engagement ring from the pockets that he absolutely needed for the night. As the day approached, the couple wanted to create a party environment where everyone could have a great time and really celebrate. Every moment was perfectly captured by BBP Studios, who took away all the stress of posing for professional pictures, and made each smile and picture seem effortless. The entire wedding day was executed by family and friends of the bride and groom, making each and every detail the perfect personal touch. The theme of family was really important to Amanda and Tim, so Amanda surprised her husbandto-be with a locket to wear with his boutonniere. Inside the locket was a picture of Tim’s mother who lost her battle to cancer six years before the wedding, so Tim could walk down the aisle with his mother still right by his side. As the day drew to a close, the two encouraged each guest to leave special notes of marriage advice in a darling flamingo piñata, which the two planned to open on their one year anniversary, so that they could have memories, images, and notes of love that would last well past their “I Do’s.” www.okcweddingideas.com

Tight Knit

Tiffany and Daniel wanted their wedding to be about the people that have really impacted their life as a couple, so they chose to really narrow their guest list to only include those key family members and friends.

Traditions

Daniel is Cherokee Native American and it was really important to both him and Tiffany that they honored his heritage in their wedding ceremony. Traditionally, at the time of the ceremony, the Cherokee couple is each individually covered with a blue blanket by their mother. The blue blanket is later removed, and the couple is then draped together in a white blanket signifying the beginning of their new life together. The couple chose to use this unity ceremony over the traditional sand, candle lighting, or rope braiding ceremony, because this held so much more meaning to them.

Cheers To The Bride & Groom

At the reception, Tiffany and Daniel chose to forgo the traditional champagne toast and again incorporated Daniel’s Cherokee tradition into the wedding. Both Tiffany and Daniel individually drank from different sides of a traditional Cherokee wedding jug. After they had both drank, the two drank from their respective side at the same time, because Cherokee tradition says that if they can drink from each side at the same time, their marriage will be one of unity and they will share a long life together. 48

Academy Romance

Shasta and Hayden met while attending Oklahoma City’s Police Department academy. The two were both training to be officers when fate sat them next to each other for a four-week course in the academy. Immediately the two hit it off, and it wasn’t hard to see that they were quickly falling in love.

Family Affair

Hayden and Shasta truly value the importance of family in their lives, so when Hayden was ready to pop the question he knew he had to get the entire family in on the plan. He brought Shasta to his parent’s property, which has a darling pond where the two loved to walk. On this day, as Hayden and Shasta were walking around the pond, the two turned to head back towards the house and there stood Hayden’s family holding a big sign that said “Shasta will you marry me?” As Shasta turned around, she found Hayden on one knee and said yes to forever by his side. www.okcweddingideas.com

Memories for a Lifetime

Working with Whitney from Red Stiletto Photography was the easiest decision Shasta and Hayden made. Not only did they love her gorgeous work, but also the three easily hit it off, and were more like friends than clients. She was everything they were looking for in a photographer, and she perfectly captured the wedding of their dreams.

All Together Now

Shasta’s vision for the perfect wedding wasn’t easily executed, but with the help of all her family and in-laws Shasta was able to perfectly recreate the vision for her dream day. Starting a week before 64

Be Inspired. Be Beautiful. Be Wed.

the wedding, her family began to help decorate and put together all the details for the big day. From helping decorate to even officiating the ceremony, family played a huge role throughout the day and made for a feeling of love and closeness throughout the entire wedding.

From One Bride To Another

Try to enjoy the engagement process, because it’s something that you only get to experience once. Also, remember that not everything on your wedding day is within your control. Just know that the most important thing is that you are marrying the man of your dreams, and no matter what else goes wrong, you will still have the most perfect day.
