Mat {+} Kelsi | Tulsa Wedding Video | Vesica Piscis Chapel

Owen - Highlight from Slow Fade Media and Weddings on Vimeo.

Mat and Kelsi Owen were married on October 28, 2017 at Vesica Piscis Chapel in Catoosa, OK.

Kelsi and Mat met during nursing school. They had a lot of their prerequisite classes together. "We passed our classes together and began nursing school together." While they were in nursing school, they experienced some of the hardest times they had ever been through. So many emotions and situations made them lean on each other. Kelsi says "I think we fell in love while seeing each other progress and grow, and helping each other progress and grow."

Kelsi and Mat's favorite meal is breakfast, so Mat took Kelsi to a new breakfast place in OKC, Hatch, on her birthday. He had planned a secret photographer to capture their proposal!

When thinking about their wedding day, Kelsi and Mat envisioned a big party with all their family and friends. Kelsi wanted a rustic theme, and used Navy, Ivory, Burlap and Burgundy.

Kelsi's advice to other brides is "Be prepared to make most of the decisions. Men really don't care that much about the planning, even if you think they do."

Lawrence {+} Christina | Oklahoma City Wedding Video | The Montellano

Lawrence and Christina Sanders were married on September 23, 2017 at the Montellano in Oklahoma City. This beautiful wedding captured the love of this couple perfectly.

Lawrence and Christina met via mutual friends in 2014 at St. Patrick's Day weekend festivities. She loved his sense of humor and his kind heart. He fell in love with her benevolence, compassion, honesty, loyalty and unconditional love. Lawrence proposed to Christina in 2015 on Christmas Eve. It was just the two of them, and felt so intimate and perfect.

When Christina began planning their big day, it all began with the dress. The gown she found has a wonderful vintage romantic look, and that became the theme for the wedding. Christina really wanted her wedding day to feel intimate, but a big party for her family and friends.

Christina's advice to other brides is "Don't sweat the small stuff. It's your wedding, make it what YOU. Incorporate the things that you both love."

Russell {+} Moriah | Oklahoma City Wedding Video | Clauren Ridge Winery

Story - Feature from Slow Fade Media and Weddings on Vimeo.

Russell & Moriah were married on August 26, 2017 at Clauren Ridge Winery in Edmond, OK.

Russell and Moriah has incredibly joyful personalities. When we met them for the first time, we just sat with them and talked and laughed. Their joy is so infectious, you can't help but laugh and smile with them!

Russell and Moriah met on a dating app. Russell's profile picture was him with a giraffe, which is Moriah's favorite animal. She messaged him asking how he managed to get so close to a giraffe, and they just hit it off!

Moriah fell in love with so many of Russell's qualities. "He is incredibly patient with me, he always gives me space when I need it (I'm an introvert, so sometimes I need space to energize). He is amazing with Zeke, he's the best dad I could have ever dreamed of for him. He's such a great communicator, and he's handsome! He is such a great leader for us in our relationship with God. It wasn't one thing that made me fall for him, but so many qualities that made me fall in love with Russell."

Russell said he fell for Moriah because of her love for people, and her relationship with God. "She was always real with me, just who she is. Plus, I thought she was cute!"

Russell & Moriah were planning a day at the zoo with Zeke and Russell's niece and nephew. They all stopped to feed the giraffes. After they got finished feeding them, Russell asked Moriah to take a look at the photos he'd taken. The very last photo in the group was of Russell holding a sign that said "Will you marry me?". When Moriah turned to him, he was down on one knee.

When planning their wedding, Russell and Moriah wanted a day filled with much fun as possible. They were inspired by their love for one another, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Moriah chose a hot pink and kelly green color palette to reflect their fun atmosphere, and just wanted everyone to dance and celebrate!

Moriah's advice to bride's planning their wedding is just to relax, and not sweat the small stuff! Do as much as possible ahead of time. Just remember, at the end of the day, your get to marry the love of your life, and that is what it is about!

Preston {+} Rachel | Tulsa Wedding Video | The Springs Tulsa

Olmstead Feature from Slow Fade Media and Weddings on Vimeo.

Preston & Rachel were married on August 6, 2017 at the Springs Event Venue near Tulsa, OK.

We met Rachel about 3 weeks before her wedding day. She had hired another videography company, and they went out of business. We were available on her date, and things just fell into place. Rachel was so calm and easy going about the whole situation, I know I wouldn't have been. We knew instantly that it was going to be a great day.

Preston and Rachel met in college. Rachel played softball and Preston played baseball. Rachel was drawn to Preston because of his huge, caring heart and his Godliness.

 

Preston took Rachel out to dinner at Red Lobster on October 21, 2016. After dinner, he drove Rachel out by the lake, to their favorite picnic spot. Rachel said "That simple Friday suddenly became the moment that I have been dreaming about since the first day I met Preston."

Rachel says "Preston compliments me in every aspect of my life. I am so so blessed to have him in my life. He is the most hard working, selfless, and kind person I have ever met. I have been praying for the man that would one day be my husband since I was a little girl, and Preston is so much more than I could have ever imagined. He pushes me to be a better person, he chooses to love me, even when it's not easy. He is my favorite forever."

Rachel envisioned a day that was full of family and fun! They were drawn to the Springs in Tulsa because of it's location overlooking the Skiatook Lake. Preston and Rachel love being on the water, so this location was a perfect spot.

The only thing Rachel says she would have done differently is ask for more help. But, she wanted to remind other brides that things are going to happen that are out of your control. Such as losing your videographer 3 weeks before the wedding! "Don't sweat those things because at the end of the day, all that matters is that you married the love of your life!"
