Beginning Our Forever&Always: US

Miraculously, the rain cleared just in time for us to take a few pictures outside! I couldn't believe it! We couldn't do our original plan due to wet grass but I still so love the pictures we got. The sky cleared, and we were so incredibly happy just to be there, together in our wedding attire, taking pictures, getting minutes closer to our forever commitment.

Some of our bride and groom pics:

Whew! And that was just a portion of them! It'd incredibly difficult to narrow down to my absolute favorites. Hope you enjoyed! Next week I'll post about our bridal party pictures, our ceremony, our reception, and details.

Again, thank you TONS to our wonderful photographer at Birds & Coffee!

ps; today I'm at a bagel joint here in Norman, as I walk around looking for a place to sit I spot a group of young boys, probably high school age, gathered around a young man talking the Bible, in the corner booth is a mom and her daughter praying, and behind my booth are a couple of men chatting about the journey of Paul in the Bible...what a great way to start my morning, reminded of the community of the Lord once again, love living in Oklahoma.

Beginning Our Forever & Always: FIRST LOOK

Our First Look! This decision came out of much debate. I was fairly set about not doing it while Kevin was adamant about having it, he even got one of his photographer friends to chime in on how it's the best thing ever (if you're in AR you should check out him and his wife out, they just started their own company together but he's been at the wedding photography business for a while, he photographs and she designs and people they are stinkin' talented! We had the pleasure of witnessing their beautiful wedding last summer). Anyway, it came down to if we did the first look then I got to choose our honeymoon location.I chose the honeymoon location SO we did and we both are SO glad we did, so if you're trying to decide, go for it!

It was so exciting and full of such joy, here's our first look:


I am so glad we did our first look! It gave me greater peace and gave us a sweet moment together. It was wonderful to get to see the man I was going to marry in literally hours, to get to hold his hands, to pray with him, to share our first kiss, to see each other in our wedding attire, and to soak up the moment. Our family and friends plus photographer ended up being there but we felt like non one else was there. BEST MOMENT! Plus we were so ready to get out and get on to our reception after the ceremony, I can't imagine doing all kinds of pretty photos after the ceremony.

 Check back tomorrow for what I'm going to call our model pictures! ;)

Of course all credit and many many thanks to our wonderful photographer at Birds & Coffee!

Forever & Always: Make-Up And DRESS!

Here they are! The professional pictures!! Hooray!!! Today I am sharing with you some of my favorites for while we were getting ready for the big day. I loved, loved, loved being around all these beautiful women, smiling and laughing. They made my morning, as you read here, and they were the ones who calmed me minutes before walking the aisle.

Without further ado, here are some of my favs:
Kevin's gift from me were OU Cufflinks. He gave me a bride tank.
I adore/d my shoes and still wear them on a weekly basis. They are BCBG with a
brooch I attached to them.
Much thanks to Miss Emily for creating this for my dress, and a similar one for Kevin under his tie.
Their prayers gave me the peace I needed
Much thanks and appreciation and of course ALL credit goes to Anna Burrell with Birds & Coffee Designs. If you live anywhere around Norman/Moore/OKC area, we highly recommend her!

Check back tomorrow for the First Look!
