When I met with Laura and Stuart last year to talk about being their wedding photographer, I knew immediately that I wanted to work with them. They are fun, laid-back, smart, and totally beautiful to boot. When we talked about their wedding, they mentioned food trucks, cupcakes, a band, Plenty Mercantile, and a big ole party for their friends and family. Oh, yeah…and that the wedding was going to be a surprise!!! That’s right. Laura, Stuart, and I were the only three souls who knew they’d be getting married in front of their friends and family on a late May evening on a rooftop the Oklahoma City.
Since booking me, L + S made a big move to Denver, Colorado and have been enjoying life there. When they traveled back for their wedding, they were playing it off as though they already got married and were having a big reception back in OKC. Clever.
This day was endless fun and was filled with lots and lots of goodness: a pizza party catered by Halls Pizza Kitchen (with flossing following–Laura is a dentist, so clean teeth are a must), cupcakes, goldfish and Chex mix (people after my own heart), beautiful florals from Cole Dewey, live music and tons of dancing, twinkle lights and bare feet, so much laughter, and one surprise that left the crowd speechless, overjoyed, and teary-eyed and a bride and groom/best friends married and together fo-eva. Pretty great day if you ask me.
Parties like this, with people like this, never get old.
The night ended with a last call and a huge sparkler send off before L + S headed out in preparation to their honeymoon to Italy. Swoon.
Congratulations to Laura and Stuart! You two are awesome.
Many thanks to my second shooter, AJ, for snagging a few of the above shots.
