It was such an honor and a joy to come out of maternity leave for such a beautiful wedding. Bryan and Ali tied the knot at Five Oaks Lodge and the day could not have been more perfect. There was an 80 or 90 percent chance of thunderstorms all day and the good Lord smiled upon us and held back the storms until after the wedding. The storms brewed in the distance which made for unseasonably cool temperatures for an outdoor June wedding in Oklahoma.
Anne Marie at The French Bouquet brought Ali's vision of a dream wedding to life with her amazing talent. I mean come on, would you just look at this perfect bouquet?!
Bryan and Ali decided to do a first look which gave of lots of time for portraits before the ceremony.
They read each other letters and exchanged gifts. You guessed it, I was crying just watching their faces as they read.
Bryan gave Ali the most amazing piece of artwork. It was a map of Tulsa with special marks on the places they met, got engaged and got married.
Good luck was in the air.
Ali's Dad brought out a book that Ali wrote when she was a little girl as part of his toast. It was one of the most thoughtful and memorable speeches I have ever seen at a wedding.
Congratulations Ali and Bryan! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day. I loved every single moment of it.
