Rylee & Colton | The Pointe | McAlester, Oklahoma | October 2018

Okay, first things first. Is there anything better than a fall wedding? Definitely not, right? Until this weekend, that was my default. I now have to change my answer! What’s better than a fall wedding? A fall wedding that is styled to perfection, my friends. I got to shoot exactly that over the weekend it was glorious!


Rylee and Colton were married at The Pointe in McAlester in the early evening. The weather was perfect! When I arrived, excited to capture the day, and was greeted by a member of the bridal party with a “Heeeeeeey Sierrrrra!” I knew it was going to be my kind of wedding and bridal party! I wasn’t disappointed. This group was hilarious, calm, and clearly close knit and it made the entire day fly by.



The attire for this wedding. You guys. The bridesmaids wore stunning, long, grey, flowing dresses and baby’s breath crowns and it was everything. Not to be outdone, the bride wore a stunning, flawless white gown with a scalloped neckline that fit her to a tee. To make the whole thing cohesive, the bride wore a similar headpiece to the bridesmaids. The men wore vests in the same shade as the bridesmaids gown, dark slacks and ties. The groom was set apart by wearing a grey suit and white tie. The overall look was just perfect!



The couple chose to do a first look outside at the venue, on the edge of the treeline. The scenery was just as breathtaking as the couple! Before the first look, Colton told me that he’s not a super emotional guy, to prepare me that I might not catch much emotion on his face when he saw Rylee even though he was excited. I have to say that the photos show that the emotion was there on his face, unexpected as it might have been! Watching these two greet each other in their laid back way and quietly chat as they prepared for the big day ahead was so touching.



The ceremony and reception were executed impeccably, with the couples touch on each part. The minimalist vibe fit the venue perfectly! There was white on white on white, with touches of grey and a lot of gorgeous, lush greenery adorning every corner. Every detail was attended to, from the light and bright tablescapes to the elegant and on trend gold flatware. The bride’s brother walked her down the aisle, and the two also shared a special dance during the reception. Colton and his mom also hit the dance floor, which was so sweet.



This wedding was one that makes me love what I do. Colton and Rylee, thank you again for allowing me the honor of documenting your wedding! It’s something I won’t forget.
