Oklahoma!



here are some of my favourite photos i took on my trip to Oklahoma last week!  a bunch of friends and family from all over flew to Oklahoma for our best friends wedding.  it was such a warm and beautiful gathering, where we met a lot of new faces that we are happy to call family now.  

Oklahoma was more beautiful that i ever imagined.  the wide open lands filled with farms and animals was so relaxing and calming.  compared to all the city life i am used to, these vast spaces really opened up my mind into a more freeing state... it was quite therapeutic actually.  and not to mention the people there have so much southern hospitality.  everyone was so kind and welcoming to us.

apart from staying one night near the city, we drove to Elgin where her family house is.  they own 40 acres of land and have their own ranch with 4 horses and like 7 dogs!  it was absolutely amazing!  on the last night, we all had a party on their huge patio deck where we drank wine, listened to music, danced under the moonlight (it was also a super-moon that night!), caught fire flies, and just talked the night away enjoying everyones company and love...

as fast as this trip was, everyday was filled with things to do.  so we were non-stop, from morning till late at night helping with wedding arrangements, doing rehearsal lunches and dinners, running flower errands, bridal party photo shoots, and fitting in as much sight-seeing as we could between those times. also, at the very last minute (literally on our drive to their home town, 2 days before the wedding) i was asked to become the wedding coordinator at the church!  so as crazy and stressed as everyone was, the end result was just perfect... watching my best friend in the entire world, walk down the isle with her knight in shining armor was more than magical to see.  i will never forget that moment.
