I've never ventured to Oklahoma but after pouring over the images from today's wedding, I think I am in need of a visit. The fields alone are enough to make me book a ticket. They definitely don't make them like that in Southern California. Do we even have fields?
Aaron Snow was the man behind the camera and managed to capture all of the lovely, lovely details of Melissa and TD's day. To say the wedding is gorgeous is an understatement; it is simple, elegant, rustic and modern all rolled up into quite the stunning package. Who knew that a cotton farm and modern lounge furniture could be such a wonderful combo? Throw in loads of moss pomanders hanging from the trees and you have a drool worthy wedding in the making.
From the Bride:
I grew up on the farm where I was married and my husband grew up in the next town over. We now live a few hours away, but both thought it would be a wonderful place to get hitched. Neither one of us is very fussy, we just wanted to have a good time with lots of great food, drink, music, friends and family. The setting was beautiful, so we didn't need a lot of embellishment.
The day was perfect, if you discount the rain and ominous clouds that gathered right before the ceremony. Luckily, they cleared before the band fired up! I loved my caterer's suggestion to serve family style. It fit right into the mood we were hoping for. I strayed a little from some of the usual traditions (no cake, no garter toss, etc) but added in a few things we both love: smores over an open fire and a gaggle of nieces under the age of seven, all dolled up to steal the show at the ceremony were just a few.
I also am overjoyed with how Aaron, the photographer, captured our day. I feel like I am back at the wedding every time I look at the pictures. They are so natural and spot on.
More in a bit from Melissa and TD's day. Lets just say this party is about to get reallly good.
