It’s official. I want to steal everything about the bride, Britta’s style. The Gossamer blush gown. The Miu Miu peep-toe shoes. And the vintage gold crown fit for a princess. “Obsessed” is putting it lightly and thanks to the dream team of Lindsey Brunk on design and Brett Heidebrecht behind the lens, we have the entire celebration right at your fingertips.

From Lindsey Brunk…Britta and Reeve’s intimate backyard wedding was held at their home in Oklahoma City on a perfect summer evening. They wanted a simple wedding with live music, delicious drinks and personal details.
Guests were invited to gather for pre ceremony cocktails while the bride and groom enjoyed a first look and a private toast of their own upstairs, overlooking the festivities. The band paused and Reeve walked his bride down the aisle to exchange their vows under a gorgeous tree adorned with string lights. The ceremony was framed by fresh lavender bushes the bride and groom had planted with their wedding in mind, and after saying “I do” guests tossed fresh lavender in celebration.
Britta wore a blush vintage gown and crown by Gossamer and carried a stunning bouquet created by Yellow Rose Co. Other details of the day included a whimsical Rifle Paper Co. Invitation suite, elegant Anthropologie glassware and an after party at the nearby Aloft hotel.

Randy and Joi hosted a lovely garden wedding that was welcoming to guests at every turn. The details of entertainment and gifts for all ages made guests feel like they were the most important part of the night. An open bar for drinks for the adults, and even a separate classy cigar bar with some of the finest cigars were available to guests. This was a family event, so kids were also included in the surprises. Fun packets to keep the kids busy with crayons and other goodies were at the kids table with a sign saying these items were for when the adults got boring.
The ceremony was shaded with gigantic shrubs all around the gorgeous aisle at Cole’s Garden. Tony Foss created stunning floral pieces to garnish the outdoor event. Navy bridesmaids dresses paired with soft touches of pink in the floral created a beautiful contrast. The bride specifically asked for peonies in her bouquet with navy in them to tie the romantic look together.
Just as the couple said I do, they walked down the aisle for the first time as Mr. And Mrs right as the sun was setting. This was not by chance. Randy and Joi planned every detail, right down to the timing of the ceremony with their photographer, Little Black Book member, Sheradee Hurst Photography. Sheradee advised them on the best time for the ceremony for the best light for their photography. This is a great tip for brides planning their wedding, be sure to talk with your photographer about ceremony time and be open to their suggestions for the best lighting.
The couple cut a piece of their soft grey and ivory cake and danced the night away with guests.

It’s a little ironic that a wedding nearly ruined this Groom’s proposal. Originally planning on taking his Bride for a walk out to a scenic lighthouse, he was forced to stall his plan when the path to the lighthouse was obstructed by a wedding. As soon as it ended, though, the plan was back on and he led his future bride to the lighthouse where he got down on one knee before they literally sailed off into the sunset. See every sweet moment, captured by Sheradee Hurst Photography, in The Vault!

From The Bride…Although Kevin and I had several mutual friends, our paths never crossed until two summers ago. He was interning with a friend of mine at an oil company when they came across my Facebook page. He became very adamant about getting my Snapchat name. She, knowing that I was not interested in a relationship, denied him the information. He decided to take matters into his own hands. He eventually found my username and added me immediately. We began snapchatting, the newest form of communication at the time. After weeks of sending pictures of our daily lives, we decided to go to a movie. We continued to hang out, after all, there were only a few more weeks of summer and life would soon go back to normal. Those few weeks ended, but we weren’t ready to. Going to rival schools, the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, we parted ways for the school year, meeting up on weekends, having daily Skype dates, and very quickly falling for each other. This past year I graduated and began teaching third grade, and impatiently waited for him to get down on one knee, something I had been dreaming of since the very beginning.
As spring break approached, I became very suspicious. I just knew he was going to propose that Friday. Everything was lining up perfectly, until he showed up in sweatpants. I was so disappointed. If it didn’t happen Friday, I couldn’t figure out when it was going to. It was definitely not the following night due to a double date we had planned. Once we arrived to our planned double date, Kevin began walking in the complete opposite direction of the restaurant. Evidently he had no intentions of actually going inside. I insisted that we go check in for our reservation and he finally obliged. After listing every possible name that the reservations could be under, with a line forming behind me, we left. Our friends were running late, but that was nothing out of the ordinary. Kevin decided that we should go walk around the lake to the lighthouse while we waited on them. To his surprise, there was a wedding going on, altering his entire plan. We began aimlessly walking in circles and he became glued to his phone, trying to figure out a quick backup plan. Eventually, the wedding ended and we made our way down the to the lighthouse where he asked me marry him, making me the absolute happiest girl in the world. Just when I thought the moment could not get any better, he pointed across the cove of the lake where a sailboat stood, awaiting us. We sailed around the lake on what could have easily been the coldest and windiest day of the year, drinking champagne, cuddled up in blankets. I could not have asked for a more perfect day in the world.
Kevin is currently finishing up school at Oklahoma State University and will be getting degrees in both mechanical and aerospace engineering. We plan on moving to Edmond, Oklahoma and are ready for whatever life brings. June 10th, 2017 cannot come soon enough!
