Oklahoma Winter Wedding Inspiration

Just when I think spring can’t come soon enough, I see a shoot like this one from Des Marie Photography and find myself raising a glass to all things winter yet again. It’s literally overflowing with all the little things I adore about the coldest season and topped off with some amazing blooms by Poppy Lane Design. It’s cozy, warm and super stylish – and you can cuddle up with every gorgeous image right here.

From Des Marie PhotographyI am seriously jumping out of my seat from excitement that I’m sharing this gorgeous styled shoot with you all! I had a vision of producing a wedding with mostly neutral color decor but pops of colors from the holiday season without screaming CHRISTMAS. I went with a few current fashions trends to make this shoot stand out. You will see that the bride is not wearing a white or ivory dress but a stunning gold dress. Lumberjack chic was the inspiration for the groom’s plaid shirt with a hunter green bow tie & navy blue suspenders. We carefully chose Express Clydesdale’s barn as our venue. Whenever I think of winter and the Christmas season I think of the ever so beautiful Clydesdale horses. I reached out to local vendors to make my vision come to life. I am so pleased to submit one of my dream shoots to such an amazing wedding blog. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

The Exchange Christmas Dinner Party Shoot

There’s nothing like the magic in the air the night before Christmas. It’s a special kind of magic that gets us giddy unlike anything else. So when Something Gold PhotographyJuniper DesignsLeslie Herring Events and a crew of fabulous vendors sent over this shoot celebrating the spirit of the season, we knew I’d be just the thing to kick your Christmas Eve off right. Get ready, SMPers. It’s about to get very merry up in here.

Something Gold Photography… This all began when a gorgeous, red velvet, tea-length dress in a magazine caught my eye. It was so elegant, yet trendy. My mind took off and created an elaborate story, and I knew then I had to execute it.

The story is about a stylish couple getting ready to have an intimate Christmas dinner with their close friends. As they finish the beautiful tablescape and place the last few ornaments on the tree, the young man surprises his girl by getting down on one knee for an early Christmas gift. He does so knowing that their closest friends will arrive shortly to celebrate!

When I proposed the idea to Leslie, of Leslie Herring Events, she jumped from her chair and instantly suggested this shoot take place at The Exchange. I could not have imagined a better backdrop to this couple’s urban, yet elegant Christmas dinner party. Leslie brought together some outstanding vendors, giving her styling expertise to help tell the story.

I felt honored as other amazing vendors came on board to help execute this shoot. IES nailed the ambiance with their magical lighting, while Running Wild Catering made a fantastic meal I wanted to eat myself! Leslie and Kelsey at Touies Design created perfection for the wine labels, invitations, gift tags, place settings and so much more!

While I wanted the scene to have an urban feel, I also wanted to showcase the couple’s love for traditional holiday decorations. Allison, owner of Juniper Designs, exactly understood my vision and created a sumptuous tablescape draped with beautiful greenery, which perfectly highlighted the Christmas spirit. I am so honored to have worked with such talented vendors who came together to tell this story perfectly. Now I’m counting down the days to Christmas!

WIUP + Oklahoma City Wedding from Brett Heidebrecht + Winners!

At the end of the day, my heart lies with the classics. There’s something about the pomp and circumstance of a traditional wedding that truly can’t compare. And when it’s all planned by Embellished Wedding and put to film by Brett Heidebrecht, I’m a total goner. Wrap up your week with a little trip to the full gallery, and keep an eye out for winners below!


From Brett Heidebrecht… Kelby’s style is so elegant. She is one of the most classic brides that I have had the pleasure of working with. She chose everything from the venues to the colors to the details to be classic and timeless. She hired Leslie of Embellished Weddings to help with the planning and design of the wedding day and they worked really well together.

From the beautiful, naturally lit room with lots of marble where she put her dress on, to the perfect light that we had after the wedding for portraits…we were really blessed with a beautiful day.

The day was filled with so many special moments. As a photographer you see so many of these things, but something about the way that Jeff & Kelby shared their first look as she walked down the staircase. It was filled with emotion and that love was so obvious throughout the day including anytime I was reloading film or setting up. I also witnessed one of the best father/daughter dances I have ever seen. So polished and they smiled the whole time.

It was a beautiful day and I hope that it is one that sets itself apart from the average Midwest wedding.
