Wow, this month has been crazy! I have tried to figure out the best way to get all caught up here, but really the only way to do it is to start at the beginning and work my way through.

A few weeks ago, I made my way to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for Thea and Nilsson's wedding extravaganza! I've actually been looking forward to this wedding all year, because I knew that it would be an absolutely beautiful event and I could not wait to work with this couple. I was certainly not disappointed.

The morning of the wedding, Thea kicked it off early with her hair and makeup, but she was in amazing spirits all day. There's nothing better than a bride that is genuinely happy and excited to be getting married!

We headed back to Thea's parents' beautiful home so she could put on her gown. Fun fact about the gown--it was designed by Austin Scarlet from Project Runway for Kenneth Pool

Getting a little help from Mom, Gail and Sis, Isabel:

Is she stunning or what? Seriously, she belongs on the cover of a bridal magazine:

I LOVED this bouquet! The sparkle, the purple...yum!

The contrast of the girls dresses and those flowers made the colors POP:

After spending all morning with the girls, I headed over to the guys. Let's face it, they're really, really, ridiculously good looking:

And funny!

One cool thing about the ceremony was the choir that came down the aisle singing. It added a touch of drama!

The light as the girls were about to walk down was so beautiful:

I love this moment between Thea and her dad:

First kiss!

Again, that beautiful light...

Woo hoo!

Thea & Nilsson have a classic look. I loved this shot in BW:

Talk about location! The museum where the reception was held was absolutely killer. How many people can say a giant plane hung above their dance floor? Plus, check out the capitol building lit up outside:

The coolest element of the wedding--not one but TWO Sylvia Weinstock cakes. Every element of both of these cakes is edible. Those flowers are made of sugar and are so incredibly detailed:

Everything from the flags to the rocks and shells on this grooms cake was made of sugar also:

It was a shame to cut it but it was GOOD!

The first dance was fabulous. Thea is a star dancer, dancing her way on the dance team all through college. I was very impressed with Nilsson's skills too!

That dress just floated:

This couple is just so in love and happy to be together. Getting to spend the whole weekend with them, their friends, and family was an experience I will never forget. One of my favorite moments was listening to the toasts at the rehearsal dinner and getting to know this couple through the eyes of their closest relatives and friends.

Thea & Nilsson, thank you SO much for allowing me to be a part of your day!

I have to give a special thanks to my friend Kyle Barnes for coming to shoot this wedding with me. I love this shot he got of me--thanks Kyle!!
