A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing my cousin Tiffany’s wedding in Tulsa, OK. Over the course of the last year, Billy & Tiffany spent countless hours planning their intimate country wedding. The day was filled with little details that perfectly reflected their personalities and story from the mudding themed cake to the minion popcorn favors.
In the days leading up the wedding, my uncle had kept a close eye on the weather. All week, there had been a slight chance of rain and all we could do was cross our fingers that it would hold out till the outdoor reception was over. The day of the wedding arrived and the skies were overcast, but to everyone’s surprise there was 0% chance of precipitation. The ceremony and cake reception took place at their local church, followed by dinner and lawn games out at my aunt and uncle’s newly built house.
Once the festivities at the church were finished, Billy, Tiffany and I headed to my aunt and uncle’s property and snuck away to take some portraits. The pond behind the house served as the perfect backdrop. Before dinner was served, guests conversed under the tents and played yard games.
Everything was going great until right before the first dances when a torrential downpour started out of nowhere sending guests running back to the house for cover. Luckily, we were able to get everything under the tents and out of the rain and moved the dances to the front porch. Billy and Tiffany could not have handled the unexpected downpour with more grace. I think that the photos on the porch were some of the sweetest of the whole day. While the day may not have ended the way that they hoped, Tiffany and Billy’s intimate country wedding was still wonderful and they will have quite the story to tell their kids and grandkids one day.
Congratulations Billy & Tiffany!
