Chelsea & Devin - Wedding Day!

Devin & Chelsea had a beautifully-simple wedding at the stunning Belvedere Mansion in Claremore, Oklahoma. I was honored to be able to fly in & shoot their event. These two have been together for one million years & it was about time they finally tied the knot :o) Okay, maybe not a million years... but close enough!

Chelsea & her bridesmaids, and her mom were so fun to hang with before the wedding... They chatted about all of Chelsea & Devin's years together, had some wine & smiled lots.... I love to see the friends of the bride before the wedding. Their joy for their friend in this new time of her life is one of those things you can't live without in this world.

The rain came early that morning and we were all a little nervous about what would happen to their outdoor ceremony. The gentleman working at the mansion said to me that in something like 50-years that they had been having weddings there, that a wedding had never been rained out. And he was right. The sun came out, the ground dried up and they were able to proceed with their classic outdoor ceremony as hoped. The rain even stayed away long enough for us to spend some time shooting outdoors after the ceremony. Just when I was thinking we were about wrapped up portrait wise, the rain began to fall. Perfect timing :o)

Congrats to you, C & D.... You know that I am so stoked for you!!!

I just love this shot of Chelsea & her mom before the ceremony.... a classic mother/daughter moment...

Moments before the ceremony....

I am really impressed with the photos you took of my nephew Devin and his bride Chelsea. In fact, from what I've seen of all your work, you have a very talented eye.

Although I wasn't able to attend, your photos make me feel as though I had been there. Thank you so much!
