Courtney + Ryan = Forever
How else can I say it? Courtney and Ryan are two individuals that make the cutest and sweetest couple there is. They said their vows and had a beautiful reception at the picture perfect venue- The Legacy at MK Ranch in Tahlequah, OK.
Courtney had so much fun getting ready with her entire 7 bridesmaid crew. They were in the fabulous bridal suite getting hair and makeup done while enjoying refreshments that calmed all the nerves.
Don't worry, the groom and his 7 groomsman had their own fun too! The groom is a huge baseball fan and purchased baseball bat tumblers for each of the guys as gifts. I'm not sure the cups ever ran empty. :)
The first look was an intimate moment solely between the bride and groom. Ryan waited outside while the photographer brought Courtney to meet him. She tapped him on the shoulder and when he turned around he definitely had tears of joy. I love how sweet and intimate this first look was.
Courtney and Ryan were fun but then you add in the entire wedding party and they were a force to be reckoned with. I never saw them not smiling, making jokes, laughing or not having fun. This was truly #weddingpartygoals
The wedding took place in January so the bride wanted both the ceremony and reception indoors. Can you blame her? It was cold! This idea involved some planning and logistics since she essentially wanted two completely separated spaces in one location. We worked together and came up with the idea to pipe and drape half-way across the venue space. On one half of the pipe and drape we had the ceremony set-up with white Chiavari chairs, a wooden arbor and some greenery with decor. On the other side we had all her reception tables set up and ready to be relocated. As soon as the ceremony was over, guests were invited outside to a heated cocktail hour while the ceremony space was flipped to the reception. The pipe and drape came down, the tables were moved and the reception space was ready for the party! The transformation:
Everything turned out exactly the way Courtney and Ryan had envisioned and they couldn't have been happier. What a wonderful and beautiful day spent with all those they loved the most.
The newlyweds shared one final dance alone to, I Don't Dance by Lee Brice. It was such a romantic way to end their wedding day.
I am so incredibly happy for Courtney and Ryan. They had a beautiful ceremony full of love, happiness and memories they will cherish forever. Thank you for allowing The Moment By Casey to assist you in planning the most wonderful day. It was truly an honor!
And so their journey of marriage begins!
