Intimate Tulsa Home Wedding | Kendal + Tyler

The day of Kendal + Tyler’s wedding day it POURED rain — an absolute downpour. Kendal and Tyler had planned to be married at Tyler’s family property under two pines, which by this point were soaked. When I met Kendal and her family getting ready at the hotel however, I found everyone collected, calm, and totally stress free, just happy to be starting the day together. This was refreshing. Luckily, Tyler’s parents have a beautiful, covered porch which their immediate family gathered to see them married. I am happy it worked out this way. Something about the sound of rain falling in the background and family gathered close made this very intimate, emotional and memorable. Afterwards, family gathered around Kendal and Tyler to share toasts, stories, and well wishes, followed by dinner together as the sun went down with the sound of rainfall. Kendal, Tyler and both of their families welcomed me in the kindest way, and being around them and the loving energy they had all day was just so wonderful.

On day 2, Kendal and Tyler celebrated at The Bond in downtown Tulsa with even more of their family and all of their friends. There’s a funny story about day 2 — you see, I was pretty much left to my own devices for most of the day, as my coverage didn’t start until 6:00 pm. So, I bounced around a few Tulsa bars, reading a book and relaxing until I began. I had been sitting at Hodges Bend, a bar about a block from where I needed to be in an hour and a half. I was debating on ordering another cocktail when Kendal and Tyler walk in, already dressed in their wedding reception clothes, wanting a cocktail before things began. It was perfect and at that point I knew we were set to be friends.

Weddings like these really reaffirm why I love what I’m doing. When two people surround themselves with family and radiate so much welcoming and kindness, it’s infectious. Seeing Kendal and Tyler focus their energy on marrying each other and spending time with their family really made me remember what these things are all about. Enjoy my favorites from their weekend below.
