James and Amanda had a simply beautiful country wedding at Bridle Creek Ranch in Oklahoma. They are true cowboys and cowgirls. ;) In fact James is a professional bull rider. I absolutely loved shooting this wedding. It was so laid back and fun and the bride worked so hard putting lots of sweet details into the day.
Such an adorable ring box.
I know I say this a lot but I feel like I cannot say it enough. I LOVE when my clients decide to do a first look. It means they get to spend the majority of the day together and they get lots of time for bride and groom portraits without the stress of rushing to get to the reception.
I did not tell James to do this. He hates having his picture taken but was such a trooper for Amanda all day long. He kept saying "She only gets one wedding day so, I'll do whatever she wants." I just love how this turned out. It cracks me up.
I want these in my size.
I love how they displayed their engagement photos at the ceremony site.
Instead of doing a unity candle, they did a branding of their initials during the ceremony.
I have to give props to my second shooter Jessie on so many of the shots I included in this post. She is amazing.
Girlfriend did LOTS of twirling in that pretty dress of hers.
This was the first wedding I shot where they did the shoe game. It was so cute!
Congratulations James and Amanda! Thank you so very much for having us capture your day. I pray that your marriage will be full of more joy and love than you know what to do with.
