KATIE & GARRETT
TULSA, OK // APRIL 13, 2019
Katie & Garrett’s wedding may have started out not going exactly as planned, but it ended up being an absolute dream of a wedding day, as their family & friends surrounded them & supported them & had one of the best parties I’ve been lucky enough to capture to date. It was awesome.
It. rained. all. day. And not only did it rain, but the storm had brought a cold front in that had dropped temperatures from where they’d been in the 60’s & 70’s all week, down to the 30’s & 40’s. It was windy, wet, & freezing, but sometimes, the unfortunate things that happen end up making the day more special, because the bad weather did not stop Katie & Garrett from having the best wedding day. That’s because, at the end of the day, this wasn’t about the wedding - it was about the fact that they were getting married! And nothing could rain (yes, pun intended) on their parade because these two love. each. other. so. much.
I met Katie back in college (boomer sooner!). We were in the same sorority (shoutout to AXO!) and we became good friends. College feels like a million years ago and life gets crazy, so I’d fallen out of touch with a lot of the girls I had become close with during college. I was so excited when Katie reached out to me about her wedding video because honestly, I’ve missed this girl. She is kind, patient, absolutely hilarious, and genuine. Garrett got himself a good one in Katie. And, Katie got herself a good one in Garrett! Even though I hadn’t known Garrett long, that didn’t stop him from treating me like he’d known me for years. He’s one of those people who you meet & instantly he becomes your friend. This couple is full of genuine kindness & love for their people. They’re also the couple who never ceases to have fun together & I love that about them.
So, despite the rain, this day was perfect, and I really believe that’s because of who Katie & Garrett are. As Katie’s dad said during his speech, “You two, you came up with a challenge of not only preparing the wedding, and you’ve done a fantastic job at that, both of you, but you know, marriage is about being a team. It’s about pushing through and making it happen. And that is the reason why I know your marriage is going to be special, and it’s going to last”, which I find to be a perfect statement to sum up Katie & Garrett’s strength as a couple. They’re certainly inspiring, as everyone can see how much love and respect they have for each other clearly, and they’re definitely a team, built on that strong foundation of love and respect. They are truly a special couple & I feel ridiculously honored that they allowed me to capture their wedding day.
Thank you to all the vendors who made this day incredible!
