The words to their first dance echoed as Blessid Union of Souls sang,  "We've taken our time and for this I'm so glad. Now we can be sure that this moment will last." Kendall and Blake have known each other since childhood. They've grown up in the same hometown. Norman, Oklahoma. They've had many a Saturday listening to the Sooner Schooner blast victory into the sky.  They've waited patiently for the day to marry, each knowing all along, that day would come. It was only appropriate that they marry in that hometown, with all their friends and family in attendance at McFarlin United Methodist Church with a reception at the OU Stadium Club with the rockin' I.J.Ganem band serving up all the beat they could handle. These two LOVE to dance! That love made the reception so much fun! So contagious! Love birds were scattered throughout the OU skybox.  I loved all the bird nests and cages! So cute!  Trees and nests, great food and cups that turned pink when the bar filled them up!   Amy Cakes of OKC made the cake and THE MOST SPECTACULAR BROWNIES for the groom's cake that I have EVER eaten! I'm NOT kidding. And, of course, they had these darling little bluebirds in coconut nests on top!  Kendall was a gorgeous bride! (She always has great shoes and matching glasses! Her wedding day was no exception.)   Meg Guess Couture had a special "something blue" put in Kendall's dress - her new monogram and her wedding date! A Date with Iris created the florals and we always love working with Von Wedding Films who create the most wonderful video!  I hope these two OU Alumns will watch it again and again, and look through their photographs for many years, remembering this wonderful day and all their friends and family that celebrated this blessed union of souls and wished them well as they trade their crimson and cream in for the crimson tide of Alabama!  Congratulations!  Here's a few highlights of their wedding day (they had a "first look" so there's a few more!)
