Alexis and Andrew were married at Castle Falls in Oklahoma City, Okla. on December 21. “Andrew and I are always laughing together and couldn’t imagine spending our lives without each other,” Alexis said. “We have been so blessed that we have been able to grow up together, and even more blessed that we get to continue growing together.” The bride wore a sweetheart mermaid wedding gown with a beaded bodice, accessorized with a faux fur bolero, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with velvet bow tie. “I wanted something classy and vintage-inspired, and I wanted my bouquet to look as though I went outside and picked the flowers out of a field,” she said. Despite a massive ice storm the morning of the wedding, all of 70 guests arrived safe and sound to see the couple say, “I do” in front of a fireplace. “After the ceremony, we went outside and took pictures,” Alexis said. “The freeze made them absolutely that much more stunning.” Cocktail hour began with a hot chocolate stand complete with peppermints, marshmallows, whipped cream, and cinnamon. Plus, customized cup holders! “Andrew and I wanted pictures displayed, so my grandpa built a frame, and we put our baby pictures on it.,” she said. “He put so much time into it, and it is something I will have forever.” Tables were decorated with all-white linens, tall mercury glass candelabra centerpieces, and “anything that revolved around natural colors and a winter theme,” Alexis said. Thought grandpa was the only one to make something? Wrong. Grandma made the naked cake decorated with fresh fruits. The Mr. and Mrs. “happily ever after” ended with a birdseed toss send-off. “It was such a perfect and special day,” she said. “We wanted to stay and spend time with our family, but our honeymoon in Washington D.C. awaited.” See the full board here.

Kelsey and Carder were married at The Sheerar Museum of Stillwater History followed by a reception at Stillwater Community Center in Stillwater, Okla. on April 13. “Choosing to have our wedding in April in Oklahoma was a huge risk,” Kelsey said. “It’s known to pour in April, but it’s also known to be beautiful. I was so worried it was going to rain, and we would have to take all our pictures inside, but I woke up to the most beautiful day. It was sunny and 75 degrees. The weather was perfect, I couldn’t have asked for a better day.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with a pearl necklace and shoulder-length veil, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a feather boutonniere. Guests were greeted to the ceremony with a chalkboard sign and were asked to grab paper cones of confetti to throw during the recessional. The backdrop was vintage door panels! “I wanted my wedding to be very personal and intimate,” she said. “I visited my favorite shops in town and antique stores to get ideas. I loved the idea of hand making decorations.” Family photos were displayed on shutters, and items including a ribbon writer, telephone, and video camera decorated tables. The favors? CDs!

Laurel and Kevin were married in the bride’s parent’s backyard in Edmonton, Okla. on June 29. “Kevin has been studying movement theater and clowning for some time, and I have always loved old film clowns like Charlie Chaplin, so the vintage circus idea seemed perfect,” Laurel said. The bride wore Claire Pettibone’s “Midnight” antique embroidered sheath dress with amethyst jewels on the straps, while the groom wore a white button-up, kahki pants, suspenders, cap, and purple tie. Notice the clown? “The morning of the wedding, it rained (which I hear is good luck!),” she said. “It made the rest of the day cooler, and by the afternoon, the sky was perfectly clear.” Amidst the trees were hanging umbrellas and twinkling cafe lights, showcased on the fence were posters of Ringling Bros. and Barnun & Bailey, and lining the gazebo were paper flowers.”We had a short and simple ceremony, and the guests were not seated according to the bride or groom’s side but wherever they wanted,” Laurel said. The reception followed with foods such as hot dogs, hamburgers, cotton candy, and peanuts, and a photo booth with red foam nose props. There even was a performer, who did stunts on a unicycle and juggled pins! See the full board here.
