Cora + Justin Armstrong | Hillside Manor Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

A month ago, these two weirdos got married! Now before you’re all like, “Ashley, you can’t just call your clients weirdos,” know this: weirdo is probably the highest compliment I will ever give a person. Plus, life and love are just a little bit (lot a bit) weird, wouldn’t you agree?

“We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” Robert Fulghum

Theirs was one of those weddings where I sort of fall in love with the idea of love all over again. Seeing them together makes you feel something otherworldly: magic and stardust and all those feelings you get when you read a really great poem about love and forever. And their first dance, y’all, I might have gotten teary eyed a few times (and for the first time in my life, wished I knew anything about videography). When the wedding reception begins with salsa lessons, you know it’s gonna be a fun night.

Bailey & Luke | Thunderbird Chapel Wedding Photographer

Bailey & Luke exchanged vows at Thunderbird Chapel in Norman right at the beginning of fall. Bailey is pretty special because she was actually a senior client of mine basically one hundred or so years ago and I just feel like all of my senior babies are growing up and I can’t even handle it. The day was cool and overcast and it was the perfect backdrop to their fall color pallet. And y’all. Y’ALL. Bailey’s dress had POCKETS. Now adore them. :)

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.

Elissa & Jay | Winter Creek Golf Course Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Elissa & Jay were wed on a beautiful day in May. Their wedding took place at the gorgeous Winter Creek Golf and Country Club in Blanchard, Oklahoma. As I was driving in, the fields were covered in wild flowers and I immediately got googly eyed.  When it came time for the ceremony, the blue sky was filled with white fluffy clouds that created an absolutely perfect backdrop for their "I dos." They danced the night away surrounded by their friends and family and became the most adorable family of three. Congratulations, Elissa & Jay!

Hayley & Saben | The Pasture at Willows Ranch | Broken Bow, Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to share this wedding with you guys. Hayley and Saben got married in my hometown of Broken Bow at one of my favorite venues, The Pasture at Willows Ranch.  They said their vows surrounded by giants pine trees with the twinkling sun setting behind them. The day was filled with so much love and laughter and the weather could not have been more perfect.

Their details were the perfect blend of traditional and rustic with pink peonies (my FAVORITE) and cream roses and lots and lots of sparkles! I really wish Hayley didn't live all the way in Dallas, because if she lived closer I would force her to be my new bff.

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!

Renee & Andy | Oklahoma Hall of Fame Gaylord-Pickens Museum Wedding |OKC Wedding Photographer

Renee & Andy had a fabulous wedding at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum back in June. Right as the processional started, a huge cloud covered the sun and lasted throughout the entire ceremony.  Then they danced the night away to all the songs I grew up singing. Perfection.

Kayla & Londan | Chickasha, OK Backyard Wedding

I have so many thoughts  I'd love to share about this wedding, but putting thoughts into words has never been my strongest skill. This day was so full of love, laughter and joy, there's not way I could accurately portray all the emotions of the day with just words. I instantly adored Kayla & Londan when I met them and when they told me they were having a backyard wedding, this is absolutely not what I expected. The Phillips' backyard looked as if it had been designed just for this day. The details were breathtaking and perfectly put together. And since, as I said before, words are not my thing, here are the pictures of Kayla & Londan's fair
