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

Jared {+} Caitlyn | Guthrie Wedding Video | Guthrie Scottish Rite

Jared & Caitlyn were married on November 19, 2016 at the Guthrie Scottish Rite Temple. Jared and Caitlyn are so well matched for each other, their love radiates out of them! Also, this venue is an absolute treat for anyone who appreciates historic architecture.

Caitlyn and Jared originally met through a previous job that Caitlyn had. They lost contact for quite a while, but then he suddenly came back into her life. It was clearly meant to be!

Caitlyn says it was effortless for her to fall for Jared. "He makes me a better person, he's my puzzle piece."

Jared proposed at a quiet corner table at Vito's Italian Restaurant. He made Caitlyn think it was just a normal date. They had talked about engagement, and were discussing how long she wanted to be engaged. He pulled out the ring and asked her. She was speechless!

When planning their wedding, Caitlyn was inspired by fall and Oklahoma sunsets. So, naturally, she used tones of plum, gold, deep orange and Ivory. She wanted to have a romantic and soft atmosphere.

Caitlyn's advice to other brides is to not procrastinate! Have your plan, and know what you want. "This is your day, so do what makes you and your honey happy. Enjoy the process."

Be sure and look for Jared & Caitlyn's sweet children in the video, they had a great time on the dance floor at the reception!
