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.

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. :)
