How did you meet? “My stepdad introduced us. My now husband was best friends with my stepbrother, so my stepdad has known Colby since he was four years old. My mom and stepdad own a western store in Ardmore, and Colby came into the store one day to pick his boots up that he was getting repaired. At the time, my mom and stepdad were looking at houses to buy and didn’t know the exact location of one of the houses, but Colby did, so my stepdad talked him into going with us to look at it. That was really just my stepdad’s way of getting us together, and ever since that day we have been inseparable! We started dating in May of 2018, were engaged in December of 2018, and married by June of 2019!”

How did he propose? “He proposed in front of both of our families on December 23rd! He invited our families over for lunch at our house. We were all opening Christmas presents and he wanted me to open mine in front of everyone, so I opened one and it was a box of nails. I was so shocked because I had no idea why in the world he was giving me a box of nails and then next thing I knew he was pulling the ring out of his pocket and was down on one knee!”

From the bride on how they met: “We met in December of 2016 through mutual friends! Scott had just moved to Claremore and met a couple and became friends with them. Shortly after, the wife was getting her hair done by me and mentioned that they were going to dinner with a new guy in town and that I should come. So I did. I love making new friends! As soon as I walked into the restaurant, turned the corner and saw Scott for the first time, I was hooked. I told myself, ‘Oh boy, this is what everyone was talking about when they’d say you know when you know.’ I just knew from the moment I saw his face and smile that he was going to be mine forever! After about a month, we saw each other again. We started to chat, and before we knew it, it was time to go home. Neither one of us wanted to make the first move. But, shortly after leaving I decided to send him, ‘I think were going to be great friends…’ His response? ‘We’re going to be a lot more than friends!’ We’ve been together ever since.”

Lovely Orange and Blue Wedding Inspiration from Hilary Tailored Events

Certain color combinations can be intimidating, but in this lovely orange and blue styled shoot, Hilary Tailored Events proves two bold colors don’t have to be a sight for sore eyes. In fact, quite the opposite is true here! With bright light pouring into Park House from floor to ceiling and a bright, contemporary tablescape, the orange and blue blooms from Poppy Lane Design really stand out, but at the same time, work so well together softened with floral texture and by incorporating other bold aspects into the aesthetic, like wood accents. Luxurious linens from Marianne’s Rentals Special Event Solutions help again to brighten and soften the space and create a beautiful backdrop for the place settings and daintily calligraphed stationery. Sophisticated glassware and other acrylic elements mirror the walls of glass Park House is known for. We love how Hilary Tailored Events took a risk with colors here, but by knowing how to give other elements the spotlight, lovely orange shades and bold blue tones work together in a vibrant yet understated perfect harmony. Cheers!

From the planner: “I wanted to use a color combination that people can be a little scared of: orange and blue. I wanted to soften it up and show just how beautiful it can be if done right. I also wanted to incorporate multiple wooden textures to show that wooden does not have to mean rustic. The natural lighting of Park House pulled it all together.”

Not sure what’s melting faster – the ice cream or our hearts looking through these darling colorful ice cream shop engagement photos from Lauren Beauregard Photography! Lauren took longtime friends and now fiancés Josie and Koby to an Oklahoma staple, Andy’s Frozen Custard, to kick off their session in the most fun of ways. After cooling off with some custard, Josie and Koby heated things up in a secluded, natural spot as Lauren captured romantic images of these two oh-so-in-love. We love their bold, colorful outfit choices and their sweet, tender smiles. Raise your ice cream cone and cheers to Josie and Koby!

From the photographer: “Oklahoma is H-O-T right now, so what better way to cool down that with your love at Andy’s Frozen Custard? Josie and Koby were easy going, fun, and down for anything. They loved being playful with each other as well as snuggling up close and snagging a kiss or two (or five). I’m not sure which was hotter, the weather or the couple!”

From the bride on how they met: “Koby and I met in the eighth grade while attending a college day at NWOSU in Alva, Oklahoma. We parted ways in high school due to Koby moving to Edmond. But it must have been fate because right before our freshman year of college, Koby’s dad moved to Weatherford, Oklahoma, where I would be attending college. Our paths crossed again, and the rest is history!”
