This traditional affair with it’s classic elegance and picturesque country club setting is as lovely as they come. And with HolliB Photography behind the lens, we feel like we’re right there on the guest list!
Cody and I met at the University of Oklahoma during Christmas Break in 2006. We dated for 4 years when Cody popped the question while we were on vacation in Galveston, TX.
I found the perfect wedding gown- in ivory, a Torina taffeta dress with a fit-n-flare silhouette designed by Pronovias. I fell in love with the pick-ups on the skirt and the asymmetrical ruching on the dress.
I chose cherry-colored strapless Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dresses made of taffeta, which perfectly complemented my gown. In order to compliment the bridesmaids’ dresses, I chose purple as one of the wedding colors.
My bouquet was filled with a variety of purple flowers such as Hawaiian dendrobium orchids, hydrangeas, sweet peas and mokara orchids. My bridesmaids carried bouquets of roses with orchids.
Ceremony & Reception
The outdoor ceremony at Gaillardia Country Club was held during of the hottest summers ever recorded in the state, but had no affect on our picture perfect day. After the ceremony, the couple and their guests escaped the heat and moved to the indoor reception. We enjoyed a magical evening with our family and friends, relishing the feeling of finally being husband and wife.
