St James Catholic Church:
St James Catholic Church was an elegant choice for Jenny & Kevin’s Wedding ceremony. Located in Oklahoma City, it’s majestic architecture, columns, & colors added such grace to the couple’s day. The bright blue sky wrapped around the couple as they kissed in front of the historic bell tower. As the couple exchanged their vows, the organ rang out from the choir loft welcoming the new marriage & blessing the couple in the name of the Lord. We have captured many weddings in different churches, but St Jame Catholic Church is now one of our favorites. Everyone in the Parish was welcoming & accommodating to the couple’s needs. This truly was a place of love & sanctuary; a place for Jenny & Kevin to come before God & commit their lives to Him & each other. If you’re looking for an elegant church to have your ceremony, then St James Catholic Church is on the top of our list.
The Bride & Groom:
Jenny & Kevin are the picture of love & happiness. When you listen to the story of how they fell in love, you see why their day was so special:
“Kevin and I both attended the same church, along with our families. I think we’d admired each other from afar since most of high school. We’d occasionally see each other at church events, and smile. I finally worked up the nerve to ask Kevin out when he was getting ready to head up to the University of Tulsa for college. I said something coy about long distance relationships, and how Stillwater wasn’t that far away (I was already attending OSU at the time). Our first date was going to get snow cones and it ended up turning into a supply run for camping equipment, for a trip Kevin was going on. Our first “date” date was an evening in Bricktown.“
They have both faced events in their life that have caused them to lean on God & each other. Their relationship has grown through the struggles. Kevin notes:
“I think I knew that Jenny was right for me when she helped me get through the death of my grandpa and my academic struggles that first spring we were dating. I’d done similar for her the previous autumn when she had a relative pass away, and there was something strangely symmetrical to it all, and there was beauty in that symmetry, like halves coming together to make whole.”
The 2 lovebirds joined hearts & hands on Saturday, September 10th in front of lots of friends & family. The ceremony at St James Catholic Church was very elegant & Jenny couldn’t remove the smile from her face. The joy & emotion Jenny & Kevin expressed during their vows is reminiscent of how special Kevin’s Proposal was:
“We first started talking about marriage after we’d been together about 18 months. We looked at rings a few months after that. I rode the bus from Stillwater to Tulsa to visit Kevin for Valentine’s Day, in 2013. He picked me up at the bus station. We had previously planned on eating at one of our favorite restaurants on Cherry Street, my. I could tell Kevin was nervous for some reason, but I couldn’t tell why. When Kevin parked the car, he said he had a surprise for me and pulled an engagement ring out of his pocket. I immediately started crying tears of joy; Kevin started crying too. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but afterwards we went inside to eat a delicious Irish meal in a restaurant almost completely to ourselves.“
Embassy Suites in Norman, OK. was the perfect choice for the reception! Guests arrived to a beautiful cocktail hour including wine, different choices of select beer, & a buffet style hors d’oeuvres line. Guests gathered & talked about the couple while signing their guestbook as they waited for the couple to arrive.
Inside the grand ballroom, the tables were decorated with beautiful flowers & gifts for the guests. You can tell pink is one of Jenny’s favorite colors. The head table was placed at the front of the dance floor so the couple could enjoy their guests & be a part of the night’s festivities.
DJ Connections provided the romantic music as the guests were treated to a delicious three course meal of salad, their choice of Beef or Chicken Marsala, & finally a strawberry parfait.
Lastly, the coupled danced the night away with their friends as everyone celebrated this new union. Words cannot describe the beauty & love of their day. We pray Jenny & Kevin will have many years of joy & laughter as they walk this path of life together.
