Brides of Oklahoma {Wedding Wednesday #1}

I've decided to start a new segment on the blog called "Wedding Wednesday" where rather than doing one giant post or a 3-part post about my wedding, I'll be breaking it down in smaller segments every Wednesday. Even when I run out of material from my own wedding, I'm the maid of honor in one of my best friends' weddings later this year, so hopefully I will have plenty of material for a while.

It's hard to believe that Reed and I got married almost 5 months ago! I can't help but smile every time I look at our wedding photos because the overwhelming joy felt on that day comes rushing back! Photography was pretty much at the top of my "wedding priority list" because, let's face it, the photos are the only aspect of weddings that live on when it's all over...well, besides the marriage of course! :)

I was super thankful we snagged our favorite photographer, Derek Green, for the wedding! Derek is incredibly talented, down to earth, and has the cutest family! You can check out his blog here. I was also super thankful that we had the opportunity to take many of our photos outside, even though our ceremony and reception were indoors (I'll expound more about this in later posts).

Today's post is focused on the special feature we were blessed with in the July 2013 issue of the Brides of Oklahoma magazine. One of our friends who works for the magazine was so kind to make this happen for us - it's such a special keepsake! This magazine is truly a stunning work of art in the bridal industry. Many of us Oklahoma girls anticipate its release twice a year. In this post I've included the photos we submitted for our feature. Choosing six photos was nearly impossible because we loved all of them so much!

I look forward to sharing more details of our wedding in future "Wedding Wednesday" posts! Thanks for reading and giving your feedback!
