Morgan & Micah | The Pointe Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Around six years ago, I shot one of my very first weddings. Kaylie was my one of my best childhood friends. (ahem.. note trendy, matte, vsco edit)

Last year, Kaylie’s sister, Morgan got engaged. Cue Ashley creeper mode. I may have stalked her Facebook until she finally contacted me about her wedding photos. Kaylie and Morgan’s family are near and dear to my heart and I was so excited not only to get to capture this special event for them, but to also be there to celebrate with them, too.

Morgan and Micah said their I dos at The Pointe in McAlester and the day could not have been more perfect. Sometimes things don’t go exactly how you had planned, and sometimes that’s just perfectly great. It rained. It was cold. I got a little lost and was a tiny bit late. And I lost Morgan’s wedding band for a good 45 minutes. (It was fine, it fell into the box of flowers). At the end of the night, these two were married and celebrated with their closest friends and family and there were tears and emotions and joy and happiness and it was glorious (and upon Morgan’s request: keep all the weird faces). <3

Rylee & Taylor | Quartz Mountain Wedding | Oklahoma Weddings

Rylee and Taylor’s wedding was a big ol’ surprise for me. I hadn’t met them before their big day and I had no idea where this place called Quartz Mountain was or what it looked like. While Kelsi and I were driving up that morning, the entire place was covered in fog, so I didn’t really get a good look at the landscape until the fog cleared, and boy was I pleasantly surprised.

The biggest surprise of the day, though, was how absolutely smitten I became with Rylee & Taylor. I don’t know that Rylee ever stopped smiling all day long, and the way Taylor looks at that girl is just heart melting. Everything about this day was just absolutely perfect, the weather, the company, the location, all of it. Now, enjoy the photos. :)

Christiona + Zac | Clauren Ridge Wedding | Edmond Wedding Photographer

Most of you guys know I’m a newly single gal; so, sometimes I’m pretty bitter about love. Then I photograph weddings like these and I bawl like a baby and realize that yes, I am a hopeless romantic after all.

Holly & Ezra | Wildwood Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

I’m not sure I’ve enjoyed a wedding more than I have this one. I honestly wasn’t quite ready to go home when I was off the clock and would have totally stayed to party with these AMAZING people if I hadn’t have been cranky and tired. These two were so excited to get married. Their friends were so excited for them to be married. Everyone was just so happy that Holly & Ezra were getting married. I might have maybe shed a tear or two but don’t tell anyone because I’m a bitter single lady in her thirties right now.

Emilie + Chris | Southwind Hills Enchanted Forest Wedding | Norman, Oklahoma Wedding Photographers

I hadn't met Emilie or Chris before their wedding day, and to say I was pleasantly surprised by this entire day would be an understatement. This wedding was not only one of the most gorgeous weddings I've attended (who could expect any less at Southwind Hills?) but it was also a friggin' blast. Weddings like these always remind me why I do what I do because at the end of the day my mouth hurts from smiling and laughing.

Malcolm & Angelica | Norman Backyard Wedding

Malcolm & Angelica | Norman Backyard Wedding

Last July, on a warm, sunny day, Malcolm and Angelica said their "I dos" on the top of a hill at sunset in her sister's backyard surrounded by their entire family and all of their closest friends. The night ended with tacos, tequila and toasts (at least two of the best things that start with Ts) cartwheels, laughter, hugs, and tears. I couldn not think of a more perfectly planned wedding for these two. <3

Amanda & Kate | Oklahoma City Wedding Photographer | Mayflower Congregational Church

After fifteen years of friendship, six years of dating, and two proposals, Amanda and Kate were married on one of the hottest days of the summer in early September. Their ceremony was held indoor at the Mayflower Congregational Church in Oklahoma City so we didn't have to bear the heat too much; and considering how photogenic Mayflower is and how wonderful the lighting was, I was not disappointed. Their ceremony was complete with tears and laughter following a ring warming when all of their closest friends and family (and Sharky!) conveyed well wishes, prayers and blessings onto their wedding bands. After a grand silly string exit, the two were off to Europe for a honeymoon in Paris. Congratulations Kate & Amanda!

kelly + blake | Old Trinity of Paseo | oklahoma wedding photographer

Ashley Porton Photography

I absolutely fell in love with Kelly & Blake from the moment I met these two.  Even if you took away their gorgeous floral arrangements, perfect decor and attention to detail, super tasty cake from Amy Cakes in Norman and their beautiful venue at Old Trinity of Paseo, their wedding still would have been perfect because of the love between them and their amazing family and friends. These two are beyond perfect for each other and I'm so happy I got to be a part of their big day. Oh, did I mention this is also one of the most fun weddings I've ever gotten to attend? These folks know how to party, y'all!
