Summer in Oklahoma is rarely rainy – in fact, usually we’re in a drought by July – so I believe it was a sign of good luck when we had a light refreshing rain shortly before Caroline and Danner’s afternoon “I do’s” at the Dominion House in Guthrie, OK this summer. I love afternoon weddings. There is something very laid back and intimate feeling about them regardless of the guest count. It was the perfect atmosphere for this couple’s indoor summer wedding. Their floral by Uptown Florist in Enid featured blush and cream arrangements with pops of pink. Caroline was absolutely stunning in her wedding gown, a 3/4 sleeve sparkly beaded bodice with a gorgeous full tulle skirt. That skirt was a lot of fun to use for her bridal portraits!
Another reason I love afternoon weddings is that it gives the couple and photographer the opportunity to spend time AFTER the wedding taking plenty of beautiful creative bride and groom portraits rather than relying on the 15 or fewer minutes we might have to take couple’s portraits between the ceremony and reception. Normally, in my wedding blog posts, I like to showcase select photos from the entire wedding, but I’m so obsessed with Caroline’s bridal session portraits and the couple’s bride and groom portraits from their wedding day that I’ve featured many of my favorites from those sets of photos below. But if you’d like to see more photos from their wedding day, I’ve created a fun video slideshow below.
