No Fuss Semi Traditional Wedding

Brett Heidebrecht Photography

When Matthew and Jessica began envisioning their wedding, they knew they wanted it to reflect them, and everything they loved, but most of all they wanted a no-fuss, semi-traditional wedding. They both planned the entire event, from invitations, to linens, to songs, which ended up making the day that much more special. You can see more of this no-fuss semi traditional wedding in the full gallery here. All captured by Brett Heidebrecht.

From Jessica-
We had the bridesmaids choose their own dresses (as close to mint as possible) in order to show each of their personal styles as well as to give the bridal party a more relaxed feel. We wanted the details to mix a rustic, vintage vibe and the use of iron bird cages, wood slabs, vintage books and a lot of lace helped achieve just that.

Thankfully, my florist had most of the vintage items available for my use, so scouring at antique stores and flea markets was one less hassle, especially since I was studying for my nursing boards at the same time as wedding planning! I knew I wanted the flowers to be colorful with a lot of different textures and personality and was blown away by the final product. They really helped put the final touches on the whole day and set the tone for a happy, playful wedding.

Camp Loughridge is a Christian summer camp in west Tulsa with a beautiful chapel that sits inside the woods beside a lake. We knew it was the perfect venue because not only was it right down the road from the home I grew up in, it encompassed our love for the outdoors as well as the importance of our faith. Everything else sort of developed from there. We wanted the aesthetic to feel natural and have the main feature be our love for each other and the commitment we were making.

Leading up to the day of the wedding I was a bit weary of what the weather may bring especially for August in Oklahoma. To our surprise, the whole day was a beautiful mid-80’s, as opposed to the usual 110’s, which made the day even more perfect than I had imagined. We had been worried for our guests that would be sitting on the outdoor patio section at the reception so we had invested in fans to surround the area, but by the time the sun had set, most people wanted to turn them off!

Looking back I can honestly say it was the best day of my life and I’m so thankful to have such beautiful photographs from Brett Heidebrecht Photography that enable me to relive every moment. The entire day was a dream and I wouldn’t have changed a single thing about it.

    certainly like your web site however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find
    it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I will
    certainly come back again.

    The online world rules. Let’s face it. The internet showed up
    some years back, and it’s right here to stay. Who would have
    envisioned 10 years ago how far we have come now?

    When speaking with a pal face-to-face in a country halfway throughout the world was unheard of, there was a time.

    Now, we have videophones and webcams that make this possible.
    Our modern-day lives have actually progressed to move around the virtual.
    Gone are the pen and paper days, when possessing a company
    suggested files to be processed and submitted manually, paper copies of business licenses had to exist and you had to have actual
    workplace to be able to work. These days, we can begin an online business without the inconvenience of standing in line or pulling filing
    cabinets open.
    It is really difficult to leave the security of a routine income and browse out something various.
    I took that gigantic leap of faith and I do not regret it at all.
    In reality, I wonder why I didn’t state, “Enough is enough” a long period of
    time back.

    Put your major keyword in the resource box and link it to your site where you have set up your opt-in page once you are done with
    the writing short articles. Here the main thing is to write and send
    mass of posts, so that you get mass of visitors to develop
    the larger email list. Researches show that the majority of the internet marketing specialists sell their products through their email
    The marketing rule Comcast is breaking is this.
    Otherwise happy clients who opt to do nothing will lose channels.
    Customers should have the ability to decide out of the changes and keep their
    existing service. A minimum of for a change period.
    Cellular phone have actually become extremely appealing as advertising tools likewise;
    a current Harris study reports that the cellular phone use
    is increasing while the conventional landline telephone is quick
    losing clients. The reality is 20 % of the adults
    in the United States do not have a landline. The very same portion now utilize only cell phones, and the number is growing very fast.
    Furthermore, while cell phones amongst the more youthful generation have actually been widely reported, they
    are likewise becoming really popular amongst older populations
    as well. For the under 30 crowd, practically 40 % of them use
    absolutely nothing however a cellular phone or
    the web for interaction. This means that over 80 % of your clients possess a
    mobile phone and you can reach them at any time 24/7 in your home, at the workplace or on the roadway;
    all you require is a computer system and an ISP.

    Remember, Viral internet marketing Videos are unpredictable.but that belongs to exactly what makes them
    so effective! Take the Old Spice Commercial for
    example.that went Viral on YouTube and on Facebook!
    And why ?? Because it was hilarious and initial!!
    So the common theme will usually either be clever originality, humor or both!
    Creativity that is based on the current pop culture– what is popular and big
    TODAY! Or that is simply so creative and wise that it will certainly then simply BECOME our popular culture!!

    The other advantage of concentrating on service and not sales,
    is that you are more in positioning with yourself.
    You most likely investigated the property business since you like assistance people and it’s distasteful
    to you when you turn individuals into dollar signs.

    I am included with marketing on-line and I likewise recently began my own vending business in Ottawa called “Food For Thought Beverage Service.” I was as soon as where you might really well be right now in your very own life.
    All I can say is have a little faith in yourself.
