We are thrilled to be sharing all of the details from Jessica and Bryan’s wedding in Oklahoma today—it’s hard to believe they will be celebrating their first anniversary in just two short days!

The couple’s beautiful ceremony took place at Saint Elijah Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church and was rich with symbolism and tradition. Following the bridal procession a series of meaningful rituals commenced: The Crowning, a centerpiece of the Eastern Orthodox marriage ceremony, The Common Cup, which symbolizes the joys and sorrows shared throughout marriage, and The Ceremonial Walk, which signifies the first steps taken together as husband and wife. We love that Jessica and Bryan chose to include descriptions in their wedding program so that guests could fully grasp the symbolism and significance of each aspect of the ceremony!
Lavish blooms, magenta lighting, touches of gold and greenery, and plenty of texture comprised the glamorous reception decor at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. The couple’s custom logo embellished everything from matchboxes, to spotlights, to koozies, to the dance floor, which lent a personalized touch to the “Enchanted Garden” event atmosphere.
It was a pleasure to work with The Fleuriste and Eventures to achieve such a luxe and layered look—catch even more details in Jessica and Bryan’s Belle the Magazine feature, and don’t miss the incredible short film from Waterloo below!
Cheers to a beautiful beginning, Jessica and Bryan—wishing you two the happiest anniversary this weekend!
