From Amanda Watson Photographers... Krystal and TJ's wedding was nothing short of perfect! They had specifically chosen the first week in July so that the weather would be warm, but pleasant. Well, if anyone has ever been to Oklahoma...they know the weather is totally unpredictable so it was hot! The hottest day in the state so far, but that didn't hinder their spirits! They each got ready at The Mayo Hotel in downtown Tulsa -- what better place? Krystal's bridesmaids slipped into their floor length, strapless navy gowns and headed off to the ceremony at Holy Family Cathedral. Krystal's dress was waiting for her there and paired it off with a beautifully beaded bolero and cathedral veil.
The ceremony was early in the afternoon and we had quite a delay before the reception, so we took the bridal party around downtown to get some fun shots of them just having fun and getting to spend some time together. When we arrived at Southern Hills Country Club the bridal party was tucked away in a private room for a quick bite before cocktail hour and the bride and groom got to see their gorgeous room before the guests entered. Anne Marie of The French Bouquet did a fabulous job executing Krystal's idea of the perfect reception: white and fluffy! Hydrangea's covered the room and the acrylic chairs on the head table topped off the effect! The room simply glowed -- as did Krystal when she got to see her wedding dreams come to fruition.
They danced the night away to the IJ Ganem band and at 10:00pm sliders were served for a quick pick-me-up for their guests! Their family and friends sent them off right; lighting wish lanterns which floated over the Tulsa night sky as they went off to their honeymoon in Hawaii!
