Rebekah + Brett | Oklahoma City Wedding

Groom caressing bride's cheek

Being back for another Apostolic Oklahoma City Wedding was such a joy! I had so much fun at Brittney & Caleb’s wedding and I was so excited to return!

I have known Rebekah for many years and she was also a bridesmaid in Brittney’s wedding. Once Rebekah knew her engagement was coming soon, she contacted me right away to make sure she could get on my calendar before it filled up!

I can’t even express enough how sweet Rebekah & Brett are. They were so amazing to work with from beginning to end. My favorite part was watching and seeing how much Brett absolutely adores Rebekah. is love and care is so evident, and I can definitely see why! Rebekah is one of the easiest people to love! Her sweet sweet personality is so pleasant to be around and her gorgeous smile will light up any room!

Rebekah invited me to capture their Nigerian reception on Friday night, the night before the wedding. Wow! So much fun!! I really could not stop laughing the entire time I was behind the camera! It was so neat to see both of their cultures come together in both Nigerian and American traditions!

It was the perfect leading into their wedding day on Saturday. There were so many sweet moments that I loved being a part of. Rebekah gifted her parents and Brett’s mom with a personalized handkerchief and even I was having a hard time keeping the tears at bay!

Their reception was filled with tons and love and laughter! Brett’s best man told the beautiful story of Brett’s testimony and how it brought him to where he is today – marrying the love of his life! It was so neat to see the room filled with so many friends and family of Rebekah and Brett’s and it was just so telling of this sweet, precious couple!

We then headed to downtown Oklahoma City to capture their bride and groom portraits at Frontline Church. It was the perfect setting to end the day. The lighting was beautiful and the couple so in love – what more could I ask for!

Rebekah and Brett, thank you SO much for allowing me to be a part of your special day! I still smile when I remember all of the sweet moments that were experienced!

I hope you enjoy these favorites from their Apostolic Oklahoma City Wedding! Also, stay tuned at the end to see some incredibly fun pictures from their Nigerian reception the night before their wedding!
