Kirby & Samantha's Wedding at the Railhouse

Posted by Marshall Hawkins on 01/17/2016

Last month a very special marriage was celebrated and we were lucky enough to get to photograph it. Kirby and Samantha said "I Do" at Alameda Church of Christ in Norman and held the reception at The Hall at the Railhouse.

We (Sundance Photography) are so very lucky. I don't know of any other photographers that are able to attract the kinds of couples that we do. We have heard horror stories about bridezillas, wretched mothers of the brides, drunk and degenerate grooms and groomsmen, but as of right now - January, 2016, we are proud to say we have never experienced those types of nightmares. In fact, we have been able to attract the polar opposite… brides who sing and dance in their bridal suite. Brides who realize a wedding is a celebration and enjoys every second of it. Grooms who are with you every step of the way, who take care of business because they know that is exactly what they need to do to make their bride happy, all the while trying to hold back tears of joy and contain their excitement. That’s Kirby and Samantha… the perfect Bride and Groom.

I have thoroughly enjoyed Kirby and Samantha since our first photography consultation. I immediately saw them as a kind, compassionate, fun loving couple. I especially enjoyed our engagement session and I am extremely proud of the results. Take a look:

Wedding day came and they were just as cool, collected, and fun as I remembered. Their families and wedding party were wonderful as well. They were the caliber expected to accompany a couple as special as Kirby and Samantha. I can’t say enough about Kirby and Samantha or their wedding and I won’t even try. After all, you are just here to see the pictures. One quick shout out to Kacee’s Creations and Bakery – Kacee did their cakes and cupcakes… check out the Xbox Groom's cake! Incredible! She has done all of our birthday cakes the last couple of years and she always does incredible work (and we have her husband to thank for introducing us to Samantha).  Okay, so here they are... our early favorites:
