When you come right down to it, I’m a sentimental fool. I simply LOVE Tulsa weddings that are filled with meaning for the bride and groom. Last weekend was a perfect example. We took our inspiration from items that Susannah treasures and then incorporated them into the wedding and reception.
Our bride and groom have families rich with Native American heritage and they could not have chosen a more appropriate site to repeat their vows.
The Cherokee Heritage Center located in Park Hill, Oklahoma, is a testament to the culture and life ways of the Cherokee people. Located on the original site of the first female Indian seminary, the grounds feature a fountain and three of the remaining columns from the original site. Susannah and Dustin said their “I do’s” in front of those columns.
It was the culmination of a journey for these two and the joining of two families who believe that family really matters. Susannah’s 96 year old great grandmother gave the prayer before dinner and when the toasting began, all of the parents joined together to welcome the Bride and Groom into their respective families.
Later the evening took a more modern turn, as guests dined and danced at NSU Tahlequah. We decorated the room in Susannah’s colors of slate blue and plum and accented tables with Victorian cloches, potted tulips and hundreds of hydrangeas surrounded by seashells and candles.
A night to remember . . .
