Happiness!  Excitement!  Loved!  This is how Michele describes her feelings of that amazing moment as she walked down the aisle. The seeds of that moment were planted and started to grow back in 2007; when she met Rusty at a happy hour event at Deep Deuce Grill.  The two had rowed for Devon in the Fall Regatta and met while celebrating that night.  The two hit it off!
Four years would go by of “making memories” as Michelle puts it, and the time would come for one of the greatest memories of all to be made.  The day Rusty would ask Michele to be his bride. Rusty took Michele out to a very special place.  A place that she calls her “safe haven, my home and where the people I loved most in the world had once lived.”  Her grandparent’s home.  There, surrounded by the beauty of nature, nestled amongst the trees, accompanied by their 2 dogs, Rusty would drop to one knee in a very special spot.  Michele tells us that this spot was where her grandfather had always chosen to pick wild flowers for her grandmother.  “I tackled him on the spot and the rest is history.”
One of Michele’s favorite times of the year is Fall.  She just always loved the feeling this time of year brings with mildly warm temperatures and the beautiful, changing trees, this to her is simply a magnificent time of year.  Interestingly, before a wedding was really even much of a thought, she had found what would become the perfect Fall location for her wedding.  “I discovered Rosebrook Vineyards before I was even engaged.  I was immediately enamored with the beauty and rustic feel of its barn and property.”  She adds,  “I knew then it would be the place I got married.”The vision for the wedding day was coming to life.  A day filled with pumpkins and gourds along with very personal touches from the history of both families, this wedding day would prove to be as much of a celebration of family history and love as it would be of the couple’s new lives together. Michele tells us that “I have been lucky enough to inherit my grandmother’s love of antiques and family heirlooms, so it was important to me to incorporate those pieces into our special day.”  But it doesn’t stop there.  She adds, “What wasn’t already handed down, my father built for Rusty and me as a wedding gift.”   Both Michele and Rusty know they are truly “blessed with amazing families.”
Michele’s wedding day was amazing.  Filled with the happiness, love and excitement she so hoped for.  Through her wedding planning she found that you need to “do your research.  Be upfront with everyone involved about what is important to you and your fiancé.” Of her wedding day, she adds, “I can honestly say that standing before all of our friends and family, and saying our vows before God in a beautiful vineyard on a warm fall evening, with the Oklahoma sun setting behind us, and standing under an arbor that my father built with his own two hands, was by far the most magical and simply perfect moment of my life.”
One last piece of advice Michele offers to anyone getting married is to “Spend as much time as you can soaking in every last moment of this time in your life.”

This is such a gorgeous style shoot design by Sharon Holm with Tulsa Weddings & Design, along with super talented local, Oklahoma wedding experts and designers, a beautiful vision came to life. It always makes a design more interesting when you play with contrast. Whether in colors or even concepts. Here the design take on a very posh and opulent look and juxtapose it with the brick walls of the venue created a very interesting feel and texture.
To achieve the opulent look and feel, the designer used metal tones like the gold in the vases and candle holders, and the silver in the beaded chargers. Adding luxurious elements wherever possible like the frame for the table number and the crystal chandelier. It’s important to carry the theme through to all areas of the event. The use of sequin table linens for the bistro tables at the cigar lounge and the overlay with jewel toned floral embellishments for the cake table, all help tie the design together.
The floral design added a dose of romance with the use of color. It also adds to the opulent feel with the volume of the arrangement. ” Nothing succeeds like excess.” as Lady Grantham would say.
