Last year we had the privilege of working with a precious couple that culminated in a beautiful wedding between Laura and Jonathan at the end of January. The couple met at OU…and Jonathan knew he wanted to marry Laura the night he met her! (We heart those stories!)
A few short years later the couple was celebrating their love through an elegant wedding ceremony at the classic Perkins Chapel and a color- and music-drenched reception at the incomparable Ritz Carlton! We adored the color palate of hot pink, gold and cream – fresh AND elegant! This sweet couple is really into music and they had it woven throughout the night, from the unexpected twist in their ceremony processional and incredible piano tunes during cocktails to the amazing Emerald City during the reception and a dance-till-you-drop after party.
Some of our favorite special touches from this beautiful and fun event include:
• bagpiper Don Shannon escorting the groom and his gents into the chapel
• the display at the reception of the bride’s new cowboy boots engraved with her married monogram and wedding date
• the entrance of guests (many from New York and Jersey) into the ballroom to the tune of New York, New York, and
• the awesome after party in “Club One Twenty-Two” with the remarkable Tommy Evans.
Here a just a few shots capturing the memorable evening from one of our fave photographers, Vim Studios!
