Donald + Kate | Loughridge | Wedding Highlight
Donald and Katherine’s wedding day was an excellent example of what we live to capture. We were able to do both photography and videography for them, which we absolutely love! It was so full of personal and emotional moments! They spent the afternoon getting ready at the Mayo, which is personal to them because it’s their last name. One of our favorite things to film is the first look between the bride and the groom. It’s different every time, but each one is so memorable. Kate walked down the marble staircase in the lobby of the hotel, and Donald was amazed when he turned around to see her for the first time as his bride. We couldn’t blame him, she looked gorgeous!
Kate was so thoughtful and made sure everyone felt included and loved. She gave the sweetest handkerchief to her mother, just before she laced her dress up. Moments between a mother and daughter are one of our favorite things to film!
Kate has two great father-figures in her life, and was able to share a first look with them. They were both blown away by how beautiful she looked! She handed them both a handwritten card and it got pretty emotional at that time. Another great moment was during the ceremony when her grandfather prayed a blessing upon Donald and Kate. They both have so many great people in her life, and we could see that clearly on their wedding day.
The reception was beautifully decorated with colored bistro lights and gorgeous centerpieces. Everyone had glow sticks for the dance floor, which they had a lot of fun with! Our team had so much fun at Kate and Donald’s wedding, and by the end of the night, they truly made us feel like guests. That’s definitely a quality that we really appreciate in all of our couples!

Micheal + Sydney | Tahlequah Wedding Videography
When we met Micheal and Sydney, we knew they would fit perfectly as a couple for RP. These guys are so laid back, and such a breeze to work with. Over the years, we have filmed hundreds of weddings, and we have realized that the ones that are easiest for us to get great footage are the ones where the bride and groom let us do our jobs, and trust us with their film. Micheal and Sydney completely trusted us to make this film, and we think it shows on the edit. They just did what we want our couples to do, enjoy the wedding! You’d be so surprised to see how many brides are so worried about the details that they forget to stop, take a deep breath, and just enjoy the moment. This was definitely not the case for Sydney and Micheal.
From the moment we arrived, until we said good-bye, we had a blast. Such an emotional day, filled with tears of happiness and joy. Moments like the first look where Micheal couldn’t hold in his tears, to the reading of the letters each had written to one another make us love what we do. We were honored to be a part of this day.
Sydney lost her father unexpectedly about a year before the wedding, and we were all in tears when her close family friend Scott stepped in to dance with her to a song that Micheal had recorded for her. We have so many nice things to say about this couple, and can’t wait for their friends and family to enjoy this video with them!

Cody + Teresa | Christ the King and Tulsa Country Club | Feature Film
Cody and Teresa were so much fun to work with. They were just filled with energy the entire day! Teresa and her girls had so much fun dancing and getting ready in the Mayo Hotel’s Celebrity Suite. We were laughing and having a great time right along with them. Teresa is the type of girl whose happiness is contagious, but she also has a very tender heart and can get emotional pretty quickly. One of those moments was her first look with her dad and brothers. They were all so happy to see each other, but when her dad opened up a personalized handkerchief from Teresa, the tears came flowing as he tried to read what it said. It was such an amazing moment to be a part of, and there definitely wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
Teresa’s great uncle spoke a great message to Cody and Teresa during the ceremony and we could tell that meant the world to them. After the ceremony, the bridal party rode the Old Urban Trolley to the Tulsa Country Club where Pistol Pete even made an appearance! The reception was so much fun. Friends and family danced, laughed, and sat around the fire on the back patio. Cody and Teresa are perfect for each other and we are so happy that we were a part of their beautiful day!

Grant + Kyra | Fairview Community Center | Fairview, Oklahoma
Grant and Kyra’s wedding was definitely one to remember! The entire day was such a big celebration and they made us feel like family right away. It seemed like the whole town gathered in the Fairview Community Center to celebrate Grant and Kyra’s union. There were so many loving and caring people surrounding them. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, which is one of the reasons why we LOVE small town weddings.
Every detail of the day was incredible, from the personalized newspapers at each seat, to the cakes used as centerpieces for every table. Kyra’s sister, Rylie, was actually an RP bride too, and she did such a beautiful job of planning their big day. We had so much fun catching up with familiar faces, as well as capturing the most important day of their lives. Grant and Kyra definitely rang in the New Year with a party that no one will forget!
Allysa + Sam | Snowy Wedding | Vesica Piscis Chapel, Catoosa, OK
Allysa and Sam mean a whole lot to us here at Redeemed Productions. Over the last year, we have really come to love this couple. They were always so respectful of our work, and so easy to get along with. As luck would have it, their wedding day was in the middle of a beautiful Oklahoma snow storm. For us, it was like a dream come true! The snow flakes were falling all day long, which made a beautiful backdrop at Vesica Piscis. We were able to capture some amazing footage from above of the chapel covered in a blanket of snow.
This wedding was pretty difficult for us to edit, as Allysa’s father passed away a few months after the wedding. They didn’t even know if he was going to make it to the wedding. Not only did he make it to the wedding, he was able to walk his little girl down the aisle and hand her off to Sam. They shared several special moments together that day. We know how important these memories of her father are, and the responsibility that comes along with presenting the footage in a way that will show honor to her father for the years to come. There were several times where we just had to stop editing, cry for a bit, come back, edit some more, and repeat. Such an amazing day, filled with memories that they will never forget, and never stop cherishing. So glad we could be a small part of this story.

Melissa + Bill | Mayo Hotel Wedding | Downtown Tulsa, OK
When we first met Melissa we instantly knew that we liked her. Not only was she hilarious, but she knew what she wanted for her wedding day. When we arrived at The Mayo Hotel, the girls were relaxing in their room, while the crew from Primp Hair and Makeup were getting them all dolled up. The guys were relaxing and enjoying some time as well. Bill, and his son Jackson (Jack) spent some time getting ready for the big ceremony. It was so sweet to see how Bill interacted with his son, and how much care they had for one another. Another fun aspect of the day is that we were shooting alongside our good pal Andrea Murphy (be sure to check her work out, it is fabulous!).
The timeline was a bit spread out so we had some time to just chill and enjoy the company of Melissa before the wedding. Tons of fun in that hotel room. We couldn’t stop laughing! After all the girls and guys got ready, it was time for the first look. Side note, first looks are AWESOME! They not only alleviate any pressure the couple is feeling, but they give you time to just say hey to one another before the ceremony. Think about it. Most of the time a bride and groom don’t get to be alone until they are driving away from their wedding. The first look allows you to just take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy your day. You can get your pictures all out of the way, and the list continues. Okay, rant over! Back to this awesome couple…
The ceremony was filled with laughs and tears. Melissa’s ring was only dropped twice, and she made it up the stairs successfully. One of our favorite moments was when Melissa and Bill both said vows to Jackson, Bill’s son. Such an emotional moment, and so sweet! The evening was filled with dancing, a photo wall, and some great times between the new family. All in all, this wedding was awesome. We have since kept in touch with Melissa, and she has continued to make us laugh every time we see her. Congrats you two! We had such a great time!

Nathan + Laura | Asbury United Methodist Church | Tulsa, OK
Nathan and Laura were married at Asbury Methodist Church in Tulsa, OK. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! There was a slight breeze and the sun was shining bright. When Laura arrived that morning, she was glowing with happiness. She spent time with her bridesmaids applying final touch-ups before the first look. Moments later, Nathan was waiting anxiously outside for his soon-to-be bride. Laura tapped him on his shoulder and he turned around, speechless. Laura held back her tears, and they spent the next few minutes laughing and holding onto one another. Friends and families filled the room for their ceremony. It began with a sweet slideshow, displaying Laura and Nathan’s younger years as well as their lives together. Soon after, Laura’s dad walked her down the aisle and gave her hand to Nathan. The ceremony was really special to them, as Laura’s dad also officiated the wedding. After he pronounced them husband and wife, guests celebrated by cheering and showering them with bubbles outside of the church. The rest of the day was so relaxing. Friends and family visited with the newlyweds, took silly pictures in front of the photo wall, and enjoyed the candy bar. Laura and Nathan were so delightful to work with. We hope you enjoy their wedding film as much as we enjoyed capturing it!

Jordan + Sterling | October 25, 2014 | The Mayo Hotel
Jordan and Sterling were such a pleasure to work with. The entire day was filled with emotion, as everyone cried tears of joy and laughter. Hours before the ceremony, the couple read a letter from one another. Sterling held back the tears as she read the sweetest words from her soon-to-be groom. Just moments later, Sterling’s dad waited to see his baby girl for the first time that day. When he turned around, he couldn’t stop saying how gorgeous she looked. They spent the next few minutes preparing and talking about the big day. It was such an emotional experience that they will be able to cherish for a lifetime.
Just as Sterling held back the tears while reading the letter, Jordan held his back as he saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle. He was in awe! The ceremony was amazing. Hundreds of friends and family members filled the room. After they recited their vows to each other, they made their way up to the Crystal Ballroom to dance the night away and celebrate the new beginning of their lives. From the custom ice sculptures to the centerpieces, the entire day was so elegant and we are so happy to have been a part of it. We wish nothing but the best to this fun couple!

Paige + Brandon | Bridle Creek | Wedding Videography
Paige + Brandon were married at Bridle Creek in Sperry, OK. This November wedding was one of our favorites, because the bride Paige actually works for Redeemed Productions. We spent the day laughing and having a great time as Paige got ready. This wedding looked like it could be in a magazine. The greatest part is that Paige’s family basically put the entire wedding together on their own. It looked like they hired some of the best vendors in town, but they seriously made it look incredible themselves. From the homemade sweets stand, to the cake, they did it all.
Paige is one of those people that can get super emotional, and very quickly. So there were definitely some moments during the day where there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. One of those moments was the first look with Brandon. It is such an amazing moment to watch as the bride and groom see each other for the first time. Another moment was the girls prayer right before the ceremony. That was such a beautiful moment to be a part of.
The ceremony was filled with laughs, and a few tears as the two became one. The reception was filled with laughing and dancing and ended with a sparkler send off!

Tommy + Jessica | First United Methodist Church | Sky Loft Tulsa, OK
Tommy and Jessica were married at the First United Methodist Church in Tulsa, OK and every moment of their wedding day was perfect. They were so happy and anxious while they got ready in their rooms at The Mayo Hotel. Jessica’s sister helped her with some finishing touches as they listened to music and drank champagne. Tommy relaxed with his parents and groomsmen upstairs. Before they left for the church, Jessica shared a very special moment with her dad when he saw her for the first time that day. The room filled with tears and laughter over the next few minutes. Jessica then gave her dad the cutest photo collage that read, “Today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your little girl.” We love filming father-daughter first looks because we get to witness the true friendship that has developed between them over the years.
After taking a few photos, Jessica and the girls made their way to the church where Jessica prepared for the first look. Just outside the church, Tommy waited anxiously. He was amazed when he turned around to see her standing there. He was so in love with her gorgeous princess-cut dress! They were the best of friends, and we could see it clearly in that moment. Just a couple hours later, the ceremony began. The pastor, a close family friend, did a wonderful job and spoke the most beautiful words about Tommy and Jessica. The ceremony was very emotional at times, but he lightened up the mood by cracking a few jokes every now and then. After they exchanged vows, the newlyweds jumped on the trolly to head to the reception at The Sky Loft just down the road. They celebrated for hours while they danced with glow sticks and confetti canons. We had so much fun capturing these moments, and we will always remember Tommy and Jessica’s special day.
