when i asked samantha to describe the style of her wedding, she said: “gothic, different and romantic.” and so it was, perfectly. the ceremony was held at the Old Trinity of Paseo, a gothic church that was dismantled in new brunswick, canada, delivered via two flatbed trucks to oklahoma city at the behest of the recently-departed and much-loved local photographer, Tom Lee, who bought the church on the internet, site unseen. sam and mike fit so perfectly in the gothic revival-style building, they may have very well been designed by the same architect. “gothic”: CHECK. after ripping out of the ceremony in a (literally) smokin’ low-rise truck, the couple and their friends and family enjoyed an intimate and casual reception dinner at tapwerks in bricktown, so casual that samantha danced in her blue jeans. “different”: CHECK. on the following morning we returned to paseo, my little pocket of inspiring art and colorful architecture in oklahoma city, for a day-after session. sam and mike opted not to wear their wedding attire, but kept the black and white colors in their outfits. we can let the images below speak for themselves, but i’d venture to say, “romantic”: CHECK.
