Travel Themed Outdoor Engagement

I adore a good love story, and this one reads like a rom-com brought to life. After locking eyes these two lovebirds began a long distance romance that traversed the globe. Incorporating their love for travel this e-sesh wows with a stunning backdrop and a vintage plane to boot, and Bcreative Tulsa was there to capture every spark. Let their whirlwind romance carry you away here.

From Bcreative TulsaDave and Loree have far from the traditional love story – instead it feels like something of a rom-com come to life. Loree, a Tulsa native, worked at a software company in Boston, MA when she met Dave, a Dublin native, working at the same company’s Ireland office. Like something out of a movie, they first met while Dave was over for training and Loree walked into the room. Cue the romantic music: but when their eyes locked – both felt an instant electricity. 

After a few dates in Boston, countless conversations, and a surprise Tiffany necklace for Loree’s birthday – their feelings for each other were not only becoming undeniable, but their futures were becoming intertwined. They traversed the globe back and forth to be with one another in the months following – and on a particular vacation to Italy in the Spring, Dave proposed and Loree happily accepted. They spent the week traveling around Rome and seeing the sights, happily in love, before returning home and celebrating with their families. 

Because Dave and Loree’s relationship has been so based on travel – and they happened to have access to a vintage plane – they decided to do a travel-themed engagement shoot. Giving tribute to their traveling lifestyle was a great reflection of their history, and a great foreshadowing onto their adventures to come as well. Their wedding will be at Tulsa Garden Center in December of this year – in which they will welcome guests from all over the US and Ireland. They are looking forward to combining their families and cultures into an exciting new adventure, and celebrating their first Christmas together as a new couple.

Classic Wedding by Christina Leigh Events

Take it from this bride, a great wedding is one where the newlyweds can relax and have fun. I can only assume that was thanks in part to the perfect planning of Christina Leigh Events. As for the other parts? Like the classic florals and lace back gown? The French Bouquet and Claire Pettibone can take credit there. Check out ALL the reasons why this is one for the blogs in a gallery by Ely Fair Photography.


From the Bride… When Jody and I started talking about our wedding the only thing we were sure of was that we wanted it to be fun. Realizing that this was probably the only time that everyone we loved from all aspects of our lives would be with us in the same room, we were determined to enjoy our wedding. Things were also pretty hectic leading up to the wedding, we graduated law school, moved to Tulsa, adopted a puppy, took the bar exam, and found jobs. By the time our wedding came we were ready to celebrate and relax!

Our ceremony was simple, but incorporated things that were important to both of us. I had asked a close family friend to marry me long before I met Jody, so having him preform the ceremony was really special. Jody’s brother went to juliard and is an amazing singer, so having him sing at the wedding was both sentimental and amazing. We also asked our pianist to play songs were special to each of us instead of traditional aisle music.

Our reception came together better than what I had dreamed up. The tables and chairs were dressed in the linens my grandmother made and the flowers by the French bouquet pulled the little details together. After seeing all the little details come together, there was nothing left to do but enjoy our being with our loved ones and dance the night away. During the last song, Jody picked me up and spun me around the dance floor. We were not ready for the night to end! The night was a total success because we were able to relax and truly enjoy our wedding.”

Tulsa Wedding from PenWeddings

Here’s the thing. Every day I fall in love with weddings. It’s literally my job. But every so often a very special wedding comes along, and I fall so hard for it, I can’t stop thinking about it. They are usually emotional weddings. Beautiful weddings. With a very special couple at the center. And after spending time with these weddings, I am filled with a urgent need to kiss my husband. Because the love from these nuptials, which every single one of PenWeddings affairs are, is so strong that can’t help but reminisce about my own wedding day and the kind of love that filled that barn. This wedding is a very special wedding. It’s filled with emotion and beauty, and the couple at the center is absolutely amazing.


Country Club

From the beautiful bride… We were engaged on May 10, 2012 and it was the best day of our lives. This is when we knew for sure that we were starting a new chapter in our lives. We fell in love fast and haven’t stopped loving each other since then. There are still occasional ups and downs, but we do a great job of forgiving and forgetting. Those ups and downs make you stronger every day and that materialistic ring on our fingers is a constant reminder that we were going to get through each tiff whether it was big or little.

Our wedding was exactly what a girl dreams of her whole life. We had our family and friends from all over the country in one room to celebrate with us. That was the most important thing to both of us to have each and every person that we love in one room. That’s what makes the whole experience so special.

I believe that our favorite memory of the wedding weekend and all the planning up to the big day would be the love that we were able to show each other. It is obviously apparent from our wedding video that we are emotional people and we aren’t afraid to show it… well maybe a little, but those tears were truly tears of joy. We love that PenWeddings caught all of these moments for us to remember forever.

If we can give engaged couples any advice it would be to love each other every day and to remember that this is a new chapter for each party involved. Remember that the family traditions of one family will be different from your family and learn to love them for that. Always have patience with one another and help the other one through the tough times. Oh and the biggest thing is to enjoy every minute of this time and don’t let the details creep in and take away your joy. At the end of the day they are just details and loving your significant other and family is the biggest thing and why we are all here in the first place.

Thank you for letting us share our story with you.

From the cinematographer… Brooke and Alex had a beautiful wedding on the golf course at Southern Hills Country Club, followed by a crazy rockin’ reception back inside.  But more important than all of that was the emotion felt and expressed throughout the entire weekend. At their rehearsal dinner at the Tulsa Historical Society we learned that this bunch is not afraid to shed a tear or two… or fifty. And admittedly, I love that! When we’re shooting a wedding I can’t help but get excited when you can feel and see the love in a room. So Alex, I’m sorry we didn’t edit out all of the crying. But I just couldn’t help myself. I couldn’t help but show how fun and loving and emotional and crazy all of you are, because that’s what makes a wedding like this so special.
