Chris {+} Alex | Oklahoma City Wedding Video | The Montellano

Chris and Alex were married on June 9, 2018 at St. Eugene Catholic Church in Oklahoma City, OK. A reception followed at The Montellano.

Chris and Alex met while they worked for a daycare in college. Chris would throw balls at Alex on the playground, and tell all the kids she was his girlfriend. (Even though she wasn't...yet!) Alex said "It was the classic case of a playground crush."

Eventually his persistence paid off, and Alex went out with him. Over time, she fell for his kind heart, his humor and his mad dance skills. "He's always told me that his one goal is to make me happy. He's done that since day one."

When it came time to propose, Chris took Alex back to the site of their first date- the Sushi Bar. After lunch, they went home, and Alex fell asleep on the couch. She woke up to the sound of their doorbell ringing. When she answered the door, she found her family had made a surprise trip to Oklahoma! When she ushered them inside, she turned around to find Chris down on one knee. She, of course, said yes! Her family had champagne, and they celebrated.

When it came time to plan her wedding day, Alex wanted her day to feel summery. She chose blush, gold and sky blue to bring her vision to life. She wanted her day to reflect feelings of fun and romance, and create an atmosphere that her loved ones could enjoy themselves.

Her advice to other brides is "Get as much done as early as possible. Enjoy every moment and don't stress about the little things!"

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."

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
