Blake + Victoria Bugg
December 31, 2015 // Norman, OK
I first met Victoria at Anthropologie in OKC about 6 months before her wedding. She was shopping and I was working and she came up to me and said, "I'm sorry if this is weird, but are you Kristen Leach?" I instantly loved her.
She had seen a video I had made for my old roommate, Madison, and had messaged me prior to that day at Anthro about doing her wedding video. She and Madison had gone to high school together so she recognized me from Facebook. I was initially excited about her wedding because it was set for New Year's Eve! What better way to spend NYE than to dress up and go to a wedding? After meeting Vicky and spending more time with her (including a cupcake date at Green Goodies :) ), I felt like I had known her for years. I later found out during her rehearsal dinner that this is one of her greatest character traits - befriending people and making them feel very loved.
About a month before Vicky and Blake's wedding, Blake's mom called me wondering if I could help with a photo slide show for their rehearsal dinner. We decided it would be more fun to do a "Love Story" of how the two met and became engaged. This meant I got to meet Blake prior to the wedding and hear their story in depth. I learned that they met in Spanish class 10 years ago and the rest is history!
I could go on and on about how great I think this couple is! It was such an honor to get to be part of this couple's day. It's obvious the love they have for each other and I loved getting to document all of the special moments they shared! Cheers to you, Blake and Victoria Bugg!
