First Christian Church Wedding Photos || Poteau, OK || Laura & Rob
Rob & Laura:
Rob & Laura met through a mutual friend & classmate at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK. At the time, they were both studying hard for finals. Needless to say, they were a little preoccupied. Laura confesses she had no idea that they would end up married & spending the rest of their lives together which makes their story all the more romantic! Rob & Laura are the perfect picture of romance, love & especially commitment. Being several towns away while in school, Rob & Laura committed to each other & their careers to make sure they both followed the path God Had for them.
Though Rob & Laura were busy when they met, it didn’t take long for God to bring their destinies together! Laura says, “I knew Rob was the one for me fairly soon after we started dating. He had to move away for school, & we had only been dating for a few months. We sat down to talk about what was going to happen in terms of our relationship once he moved away, & I remember feeling so relieved when he said that he was 100% willing to make a long-distance relationship work. Since we had only been dating for a short time, I was flattered that he saw something in me worth investing his time & effort into.”
Rob recalls, “I knew Laura was the one approximately 2 months into the relationship. The moment I knew was when I was talking to my best man Blake. We both had got into a relationship at about the same time & one day as we were talking back & forth about them I told him ‘I’m done looking’. I think it shocked the both of us that I said those words, but I haven’t looked back since!”
Rob & Laura took great care & interest in decorating their church with color & items that were special to them. Laura said that she really likes when couples dare to be different & incorporate little bits of themselves into the wedding. It’s fun to learn about their personalities from all the extra details. Every table had a little bit of information about Rob & Laura, every detail told a little about their style & personality, & every person in the bridal party carried a black to marble to symbolize……well, you will have to comment below to find out from Rob & Laura yourself!
Though the couple chose to not see each other before their ceremony, the anticipation in Rob’s face said he was ready to see his bride! Numerous times he literally told us we’d have to blindfold him, because he’s definitely look at Laura if he got the chance!!
Laura & Rob believe in family & friends! They live for their family! So many friends & family came from all over to be a part of Laura & Rob’s special day! Not big on following the normal wedding schedule, Laura & Rob decided to have an intimate rehearsal at First Christian Church immediately following their ceremony where they could mingle with friends & share a moment. Later that evening, family & super close friends gathered at the Hotel where most were staying for the Holliday Party! Dj’d by Laura’s close friend & bridesman Colten, the party kept jumping as everyone danced, laughed, shared, & celebrated the new couple!
