A few weeks ago, I posted about how important the details are in telling a couple’s story on their wedding day. Had I been able to look forward to Stephanie and Mike’s wedding, I would have saved that post and just directed you to this one instead as an example of just how exquisite attention to detail can be!
I was totally blown away by the attention paid to each and every aspect of this celebration, from the gorgeous blues and blush colors that prevailed to the overarching modern farmhouse feel that was executed flawlessly. Amazing!
Stephanie and Mike were married in Tulsa at the lovely Willow Creek Mansion, on a warm, breezy and humid evening. Stephanie wore an elegant and timeless gown, and was led down the aisle by her father. Her bridesmaids were in the most delightful muted tones of blue, blush and taupe. Mike and his groomsmen alike were dapper in slacks and blush suspenders with blush bow ties.
What set Mike apart, though, was his pair of custom cufflinks. Mike and his grandmother were remarkably close and after her passing, a friend of the couple’s created these from the flowers from her funeral. Not only were they incredibly personal, they are truly stunning works of art. I loved that they were able to include someone so special to them on their big day in this way!
Another special detail about this day was that Stephanie’s father was also the officiant of the wedding. When they were ready to begin and he held the microphone up to start, the emotion overcame him and he had to collect himself for a moment before going on. Stephanie’s dad wasn’t’ the only one who was a part of the ceremony though! Her grandfather led the attendees in prayer before the ceremony began. The love for their girl was evident from both her father and grandpa.
After the ceremony, the best man and maid of honor (a married couple, how fun is that?!?) gave toasts to the couple that were so touching. They spoke of what wonderful friends both Mike and Stephanie are, and how they have been so excited to see this day come for the happy couple.
The evening closed out with a dance, and let me tell you – the DJ kept the party going! I also have to mention that their wedding cake was one of the best I’ve tasted.
This wedding was just such a joy. I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to witness and capture it for this sweet couple.
