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!

Kyle {+} Kayla | Oklahoma City Wedding Video | The Grand Canadian Theatre

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

Kyle & Kayla were married on July 3, 2017 at the Grand Canadian Theatre in Purcell, OK.

Kyle and Kayla met when his family moved to town when Kayla was in 8th grade. Kayla and Allyson, Kyle's sister, became best friends almost instantly. Since Kayla and Allyson were best friends, Kyle and Kayla ended up spending a lot of time together, and she always thought he was cute, but Kyle was older, and wasn't interested in his little sister's friend.

Around the time that Kayla was deciding where to go to college, she and Kyle had been texting and chatting on Facebook off and on. However, Kayla decided to play college softball in Omaha, NE, and she had no interest in dating someone long distance. Throughout that year, she came home several times, and each time, found herself hanging out with Kyle.

After Kayla's freshman year was over, she felt like Omaha was not the right place for her, and wanted to move back home to play for SNU. With this move, it allowed Kyle and Kayla to spend more time together, and before they knew it, they were going on lots of dates. Pretty soon, Kyle asked Kayla to officially be his girlfriend, and she, of course, said yes.

Their first official date after Kyle asked her to be his girlfriend, he picked her up from her parent's house, and instead of just sending her a text to come outside, he actually walked to the front door to get her. That was the first moment Kayla thought to herself "I love him."

For Valentine's Day, Kyle planned a date in Bricktown: a nice dinner at KD's. They weren't hungry yet when they got to Bricktown, so they decided to wander around Bass Pro Shops and the Bricktown canal. They stopped to sit down several times, since Kayla's shoes were making her feet hurt. At one of their stops, Kyle slid down on one knee and asked Kayla to spend the rest of her life with him. She was so suprised that she cried and hugged him so tight. That moment was such a blur, that neither are certain if she actually said yes!

Kayla has envisioned wearing cowboy boots with her wedding dress since she was old enough to realize that she would grow up and get married some day. She wanted to show off her girly side, but also wear her boots- a little bit rustic, but not too country, "boots & bling" was her inspiration. She wanted a fun, special and beautiful day filled with family and friends celebrating with her and Kyle. She used navy, dark red and shiny neutrals (gold, rose gold, etc.)

Kayla's advice to other brides is to have fun during the planning process! Make memories from every second that you spend on your special day. Don't worry or be anxious about it. She said her favorite bible verse has guided her through this process: "Do not be anxious about anything." -Philippians 4:6

Jacob {+} Megan | Tulsa Wedding Video

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

Jake and Megan were married on June 10, 2017 at his family's home in Catoosa, OK. Jake and Megan are made for each other. Their love for each other and for God is so apparent.

Megan and Jake met when they were freshman in college. She played softball for Southern Nazarene University. He played baseball at Mid America Christian University. They had many mutual friends, and their paths had crossed through sports, but had never truly met or gotten to know each other.
Jake and Megan's birthdays are 2 days apart, and their 19th birthday celebrations happened to be at the same location. Megan's cousin was attending Jake's party, when he suggested Megan and her friends combine their celebration with Jake's. They made eye contact and flirted a little that night, but the night ended in a sweet "Happy Birthday."
For a month after their first meeting, Jake asked Megan on date after date. But, Megan always had a reason why she wouldn't be able to make it. Finally, she agreed to go out with him, and their first date was April 29, 2013. Jake picked her up after her morning classes and took her to Raising Cane's for lunch. They talked, and enjoyed each other's company. The date was cut short because they both had to get back to school for their respective sports practices. But, after practice, Jake and Megan went out again. They shared snow cones on the tailgate of his truck while watching the sunset. Megan says "While lost in laughter and conversation this was the night I knew Jake was going to be around for a while. It was that night that I regretted not going on a date sooner. Jake was everything & more that I prayed for in a man. He was charming, handsome, witty, full of cute smirks, godly, respectful, he was simply wonderful. Falling for him was so easy + loving him was so simple."

Megan fell for Jake's selflessness. She says "As I met Jake's family and friends, I listened to them share their favorite memories of Jake. Usually, they begin with Jake being ornery or pulling a prank, but there was so much more to him. Every person would talk about how Jake cares for others, how he was present in their life at a difficult time, or how he keeps up with their life after weeks of not talking." Megan and Jake have been together just over 4 years, before their wedding day, and Jake has continuously put God first in their relationship. Megan loves that he doesn't need material things, he would rather see his friends and family happy and well.

Jake proposed to Megan on May 7, 2016. Jake's family had come to Oklahoma City to celebrate his college graduation. All of Megan's family came up from Norman to celebrate Jake as well. Being so family focused, having everyone there was special for both Jake and Megan. After the graduation ceremony, there was a party for Jake. Jake opened all his cards and gifts, and his grandfather asked everyone to go outside for a group picture. As everyone gathered, Jake's mom suggested Megan stand in the middle with Jake. As she approached him, she noticed "Marry Me" by Train playing in the background. She hands started to shake, her heart was racing, and her eyes began to fill with tears. Jake took her hand, and got down on one knee. Megan said yes, jumped into Jake's arms, and the rest is history! Meg says "Jake made his day, our day. He continues to make his dreams, our dreams and is now making his life, our life. I am so ready for a lifetime of marriage with this sweet man!"

Megan wanted a romantic, dreamy, elegant day filled with love, fun and celebration with the people they love. She used teal, soft pink and gold tones to bring her vision to life. Megan said "I pray my wedding is a day that feels like a glimpse of heaven, filled with that much love and happiness in the air. I picture a ceremony that as I walk down the aisle I am completely breath taken by the love and support J and I will have in our sweet marriage, we are truly blessed. I imagine seeing the arch in front of the green woods, decorated with bright flowers a chandelier hanging, surrounded by our dearest friends, and then my handsome J waiting for me. I picture shaky hands, tear filled eyes, and teary words as we say our vows. I see simple elegance with soft pinks, teal and gold. I picture our unity being intimate in Christ. I envision a day that screams love; through our smiles, our eyes, our words, our family and friends. I envision an abundant amount of love."

Megan want other bride's planning their day to get caught up in it, enjoy it! Don't focus on what other people are doing. "Be consumed by your story, your love, your marriage. Don't worry what other people have done or are doing. This is your moment and it is going to be absolutely beautiful! Choose people in your bridal party who want to celebrate your marriage now and in twenty, thirty, forty years. This is your foundation of support for the future. Do not stress the small moments or hurt feelings, because ultimately it is your day and you should enjoy every moment of it from the engagement to the wedding day. This is such a special and exciting time in life; embrace, indulge, and be consumed in YOUR wedding, your love for one another, and your marriage. Your wedding is going to be a dream."
