Planning your wedding?

Choosing your photographer is going to be the most important part of your wedding day. As my mom said,
"Your bouquet is wilted and dusty.
The dress is boxed or hanging in storage.
The cake is long gone, down the drain.
But your pictures will be something you keep
and remember forever,
taking you back to every detail
of your special day."
Hearing from clients who made the decision to invest in photography is always way better than hearing it from me. Here are some interviews I did of some of my past brides & grooms & their experience. 
Thank you all for your help in making this happen, I would love for you to share this on your facebook page & anyone planning their wedding.

I Cross My Heart Wedding Chapel Open House - Oklahoma Wedding Venue

I Cross My Heart Wedding Chapel opened the same year I photographed my first wedding, 2004.  This is I Cross My Hearts 10 year in business.   Jean, the owner of the chapel told me the idea started as a dream or a fairy tail to open a chapel someday.  She started helping brides & grooms in her church first until the idea became reality.  They bought the land and started from scratch - she didn't even look ant any plans - she knew exactly what she wanted. 

July 17, 2004 the doors opened & I Cross My Heart Wedding Chapel was born.

Jean grew up in Sentinel, Oklahoma & her best friend Pat, who also helps her run the chapel, also grew up in Sentinel Oklahoma.  I grew up in a small town close to there & I think that is how we really connected - a place that feels like family.   I photographed my first wedding at I Cross My Heart Wedding Chapel in 2011 & every time I am able to be there it is such a great environment - they make everyone feel welcome and at home - which is exactly how you want to feel on your wedding day.

They have been apart of over 1,000 weddings & they do everything possible to make their bride & grooms have the perfect fairy tail to look back on.  The brothers, sisters, family & friends of their  past bride and grooms continue to book the venue as their location to get married because they see how great of an experience it is and how accommodating they are to everyone.

I would like to invite all of you out to the chapel for their open house this coming weekend.

1-4pm (come & go)
16786 N.E. 23RD ST.

I will be there booking weddings! I hope to see you there!!

 All of these images were taken at I Cross My Heart Wedding Chapel & their gorgeous gardens.

"I had an outdoor wedding at I cross my heart chapel and the staff really made sure that everything flowed smoothly, even though there was a mild mix up with the groom men's suits on the rehearsal, Jacob, Pat and Jean made sure that the wedding day was perfect for me and my husband. The garden at I cross my heart chapel is beautiful and would make an amazing setting for wedding or for engagement pictures. I love that they took care of everything, setting up, food, and packing things up for us." -  Rachel & Daniel, married 2013.

"They are amazing!!! Jean, Pat, and Jacob made my day absolutely perfect. Jean worked with me personally, and answered every single question I threw at her!
