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!"

Austin {+} Julie| OKC Wedding Video | Petroleum Club

Austin and Julie were married on June 11, 2016 at First Church in Downtown Oklahoma City. Their reception was at the Petroleum Club of Oklahoma City. When we met Julie and Austin, we knew this wedding would be one for the books. They both has so much style! And we could just tell how much they loved each other.

Julie and Austin were introduced by Julie's "Little" in her sorority, Madison. Julie needed a date for the spring formal in 2014. Austin was in Madison's sociology class. Madison gave Julie's number to Austin, and they started texting and making plans for the formal. (There might have been some Facebook stalking too!) When Austin finally met Julie for the first time the night of the formal, he knew he wanted to spend more time with her. They talked non-stop on the way to the formal, and by the time they arrived, Julie knew Austin was special. For two weeks, they spent a lot of time studying and hanging out. Austin knew he couldn't let Julie go, so he took her on a date and he asked her to be his girlfriend. Julie and Austin really bonded over their passion for Soonerthon, benefitting Oklahoma City Children's Hospital. Austin proposed by at Vast, on the 49th floor of the Devon town in downtown Oklahoma City. After Julie said yes, Austin had 50 friends and family waiting to celebrate with them at Julie's parent's house.

When Julie started planning their wedding, she started with her flowers. She picked her favorite ones, and then built the rest of her day around that. She wanted the day to be passionate, blissful and romantic. She was inspired by Kate Spade and used stripes and pinks, but also wanted dark red and gold mixed in for a timeless feel.

Julie's advice to future brides would be to hire a planner and know how to use spreadsheets! She and her planner had a Google Doc they shared that covered her budget, guest tracker, and ALL her details. Organization is key! Julie said "don't be afraid to meet with as many vendors as you need to. Compare prices and make sure your personalities mesh well!"

Don't miss Austin's adorable reaction when he sees Julie for the first time as she's coming down the aisle. Talk about a man in love, he couldn't take his eyes off of her all day. They also had a live band at the reception- what a treat! Keep an eye out for the pink, sparkly guitar!

We absolutely loved capturing all the moments of Julie and Austin's day, and we hope you love their video.
