What a lovely wedding day with Angela & Nick in downtown Stillwater at The Loft at Studio J! I’ve known Angela’s family for the majority of my life, so it was so much fun to catch up with the entire family and capture this day! What a joy getting to know Nick and his family too! Such a great family! Fun fact: Nick’s sister is married to Angela’s brother!
The day began with preparations at the venue. Angela was getting her hair & makeup done by Creative Beaute Agency while I took detail photos of the couple’s things. While I was prepping the flat-lays, the florist was working on the arbor for the ceremony. So I asked if I could borrow some florals and it was just want to was looking for! A huge thanks to Studio Louise Flowers for being so awesome! And check out her bouquet! Nick got in his suit from The Black Tux and it looked so good on him! After Angela was all ready, her mom and sister helped her into her beautiful lace dress from The Wedding Shoppe! Look at the sleeves!
The couple shared their first look by the windows upstairs at the venue and it was so sweet! They are so calm and tender together! We then did couple’s photos around the venue and downtown Stillwater. We then took wedding party photos outside on the streets of Stillwater as well! All of Angela’s bridesmaids were sisters or sister-in-laws! Nick’s crew was made up of all family as well – his best man was his brother-in-law along with his wife (Nick’s sister), and two brother-in-laws! We finished up formal photos with family photos in the ceremony space.
The ceremony was meaningful and Paster Sam from The North Church did such a great job as always. The couple exchanged vows, lit a unity candle, and were pronounced husband & wife! Guests enjoyed a social hour while the venue flipped the space. Such a great set up for the reception! Look at the couch for the couple! We did a few sunset photos as well before the reception seating! A lovely golden sunset on their wedding day! Bella Vida Catering served a great meal before everyone enjoyed cake from Queen of Cakes. After the couple greeted and visited with guests, they did a fun bubble send-off! The wedding party had decorated the car – complete with tin cans tided to the back! Congrats Angela & Nick!
