ARIEL & BRADLEY

WEDDING at a GLANCE "It did not rain during the wedding or reception, but it was very muddy out. Ariel was not able to wear shoes down the aisle. The girls climbed into the tub to wash their feet after the ceremony except Ariel. Her maid of honor washed Ariel’s feet for her. What I remember most was that Ariel was completely unfazed and was totally focused on what was important: marrying Brad, becoming Mrs. Anglin, and becoming a sweet family of 4. Her daughter Ella and Brad’s son, Kasen, participated in the ceremony. There was a lot of hugging and smiling that day!"

MIRANDA & BJ

WEDDING at a GLANCE "Like 90% of the weddings I've shot in my career, it was supposed to rain the day of Miranda and BJ's wedding, but somehow luck was on our side and the clouds cleared for most of the day. The weather and lighting were magnificent! There was a cool breeze, the air smelled of wildflowers and sunshine, and the song of the cicadas was all you could hear. Miranda and BJ ordered a ton of used saris from Etsy and that's how they made the majority of their decor, which turned out so beautifully. I got to spend most of the day with them and watched as their closest friends and family readied the entire space for them-it was so lovely."

A RICH HISTORY Before the Dominion House became the event center, hotel and restaurant it is today, in 1923, it originally was the Masonic Children's Home. It was one of the largest children's facilities built in Oklahoma at the time. The home was designed by architects Hawk and Parr and constructed by Campbell and Price. It's an example of a classical Revival design. Today, the Dominion House, equipped for the 28

WOODSY SCENERY

Adding "woodsy" elements can be a great tool to subtly increase the romance and showcase a love that's natural, wild, and constantly growing. Incorporating nature while keeping other details more formal and refined can add a unique splendor and style to a wedding.  Eleven Oaks Ranch, situated among some of Oklahoma's most lovely scenery, provided the perfect backdrop for our shoot and allowed us to create passionate, intimate moments that were full of springtime bliss.  The mature trees throughout the venue added an air of seclusion and organic charm, and the pergola nestled perfectly within the natural landscape was the ideal setting for a bold romantic statement.

TEXTURE

A big trend I'm noticing right now is working interesting textures into various details of the wedding. We played up this trend by including a lot of dimension and layering elements in our tablescape, as well as showcasing an all-lace wedding dress.  We wanted to include texture in a way that was still light and airy and reminiscent of spring romance, so we combined heavier pieces like vintage furniture with light fabrics with lots of movement.  My favorite example of texture from the shoot was the breathtaking cake by Signature Bakery.  The meringue shards, gold accents, and textured buttercream frosting added richness and depth to this gorgeous dessert. www.weddingideasok.com

37


MOODY FLORALS

Another trend that seems to have some serious staying power is beautiful, overgrown floral arrangements. Lately I've noticed that the newest spin on this trend is to amplify the drama through bold, deep colors and soft neutrals.  We wanted to find a way to adapt this floral trend to a spring wedding by bringing to light floral arrangements that capture the elegance of the season while still adding that dramatic flair.  Trochta's brought this vision to life with gorgeous floral design that incorporated both the softness of spring and the glamour of this trend.  Lots of lush greenery and full flowers defined the arrangements for the shoot. 38

Be Inspired. Be Beautiful. Be Wed.


STATIONERY TRENDS: ENVELOPE LINERS & BOTANICAL ACCENTS

Couples are making more and more adventurous choices with their invitation suites. For this shoot, we wanted to illustrate ways to add interest to invitations while still reflecting romance and vintage charm.  One major trend that we definitely wanted to incorporate was the use of envelope liners.  Liners are a fun way to add a pop of color and and personality without making the invitation itself too busy.  The invitation suite by Hazel Paper Co. demonstrated a simple, easy elegance with its modern brush script, botanical accents, and gorgeous spring colors. Matching menus and place cards completed the wedding stationery for the shoot.

MIXING THE OLD & NEW Throughout this shoot, we cultivated a vintage vibe with modern accents. This was visible in many aspects of the shoot, such as the architectural lines and elegant chandeliers of the venue.  This was especially evident in the menswear as well as the place settings.  The wardrobe created a traditional yet trendy look for the menswear by contrasting the simple linear pattern on the groom's suit with the suit's classic colors and floral tie.  On the head table, the clean, modern lines of the menu beautifully played off the vintage plates and stemware from Grassroots Vintage.  All of these elements came together to create an updated look for captivating vintage romance. www.weddingideasok.com

HOW TO GET THE pinterest-esque

engagement SHOOT OF YOUR

DREAMS – WITHOUT STRESSING Style Guide

Use the style guide I provide to get specific ideas on what looks best in photos. Soak it all in. Ask me for advice! My joy and passion (not to mention my job) is to serve and deliver you the best photographs possible. I love helping build your vision.

Choosing your Wardrobe

My camera loves pastels! They give a bright, airy, and dreamy quality. This is your time to shine. Go all out! Buy that flowy, beautiful dress that you might not have a use for in your day to day life. Convince your fiance to wear a blazer and some slacks. Talk him out of jeans! You only get one set of engagement photos, and they will be heirlooms for your family for generations to come. Keep your clothes cohesive and coordinating while avoiding being too matchy-matchy. Think of complementary colors and textures that mesh well together. Look for what looks good as a whole vision rather than dressing alike.

Hair and Makeup

Consider hiring someone to do your hair and makeup the day of the shoot. I know outsourcing your beauty routine might sound like a luxury, but you’re worth it! This will take an incredible amount of stress off your plate and make you feel more pampered. It will aid in giving you the Pinterest-styled gallery you were dreaming of. This is a special time in your life and you want to look back and remember not only how in love you are, but how beautiful you felt. Happy Engagement Season! With love,

Sierra

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO DO AN

engagement session

WITH YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

You need AWESOME engagement pictures for your walls, save the dates, invitations, and pictures around the reception. They will beautifully showcase the love you two share. During your session you will see if our personalities mesh well together. Definitely prep yourself for your big day, because this is YOUR day and it only happens once! I promise it’ll be something you won’t regret and might even thank me for later! 50

The couple was so relaxed and ideal to work with. They had a short and sweet vow and wine box ceremony. They choose to do a first look outside of The Springs with some additional couple’s portraits. Their wedding was definitely one to remember. They sure know how to party!"

KENNEDY & BRADEN

Wedding at a Glance "Braden & Kennedy's Idea of a March wedding was ethereal & romantic. The soft touches of pink & green floral arrangements, the draped reception lighting, and the joyous guests made this an unforgettable wedding. I was honored to also capture the beautiful, private moments of the blind first look & letter reading. This was a great way the sweet couple could spend a few moments together before the long awaited true first look at the ceremony. I love photographing these precious moments for couples as they exchange vows, gifts or letters and pray together before standing before their family & friends. The most touching moment, I know I was crying, was as the guests exited to send the bride & groom on their way. Braden & Kennedy, serenaded by Full Circle Melody, enjoyed a private last dance together, just the two of them, as man & wife. Truly a match blessed by God & living their happily ever after."

THE GRAND BALLROOM As one of the larger wedding ballrooms, the Skirvin HIlton's Grand Ballroom is 6,120 square feet of expansive opulence. Though most people will point to the magnificent marble staircase, it's the versatility that makes this space one of our most popular venues. Depending on the size and needs of your celebration, the Grand Ballroom can be divided and arranged to perfectly accommodate you and your guests.

THE CENTENNIAL BALLROOM At 2,048 square feet, the Centennial Ballroom can be divided into three separate sound proof rooms. This classically adorned celebration ballroom commemorated the Skirvin Hilton's 100th birthday, which was celebrated in October 2011.

THE CRYSTAL ROOM The Skirvin is one of the few wedding venues in Oklahoma City that can showcase historical luxury in a smaller space. The Crystal Room preserves the Skirvin Hilton's historic 80

grandeur! With originally restored hanging chandeliers, this intimate hotel ballroom setting is 1,722 square feet.

THE VENETIAN ROOM The Venetian Room is quite possibly the Skirvin Hilton's most storied venue. Once a hotspot for live orchestras and vaudeville acts, today's 2,600 square foot Venetian Room has been restored to the splendor of its 1930's heyday.

THE CONTINENTAL ROOM The Continental Room occupies a quaint 1,444 square feet of the Skirvin Hilton's 14th floor. This hotel ballroom rental features a breathtaking view of Oklahoma City's downtown skyline.

THE FOUNDERS ROOM Located adjacent to the Continental and Venetian Rooms, the Founders Room is the ideal space for prefunction receptions and cocktail hours. This room alone is a coveted favorite amongst wedding venues in Oklahoma City.
