Carrie and Daniel’s wedding took place in front of a roaring fire at the Southern Hills Country Club. With a brisk breeze outside, and the warm glow of the fire inside, Carrie and Daniel were surrounded by love and peace as they took place in a breathtakingly beautiful ceremony.

Daniel had recently made it back from his missionary work in South Sudan. When we first spoke, he was very excited for the memories to come, and was fantastic to photograph with during his groom photos.

With Carrie and Emily just down the hall, Em was able to capture photos with Carrie and some of the cutest flower girls EVER.

Following detail shots for this beautiful Southern Hills Country Club wedding, Em and I gathered lighting for what would become an unforgettable ceremony. With pianist, Dale Powell, providing the relaxing ambiance, rich hard woods adding to the rooms luxury, and every seat accounted for, it’s no surprise that they were loved by everyone in the room.

During the ceremony, Emily and I knew it was going to be wonderful when we caught reference to the book, The Meaning of Marriage, by Timothy Keller.

“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” ― Timothy J. Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

As Tulsa wedding photographers, it’s hard to get enough time with the bride and groom by themselves. Fortunately for us, we had a fantastic caddy who helped us find several amazing locations.

From the majestic stand of trees to the stone bridge — straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel, there were several captivating locales to enjoy.

It is easy to see how much fun we were all having with the creatives for this Southern Hills Country Club Wedding. Just before entering the reception hall, our driver took us to one more location, and I am so glad he did!

In the time we spent with creatives, the amazing team at Southern Hills completely transformed the ceremony room into an amazing reception hall.
