A classic and timeless wedding with a nod to the couple’s Western ranching style, Jaci and Levi’s special day is one you don’t want to miss. Jaci and Levi both grew up in Northwest Oklahoma but only knew of each other in high school. However, it wasn’t until Jaci’s older sister went to college at Oklahoma State and became friends with Levi that the two were introduced. When Jaci visited Stillwater, Levi was always around, and she became smitten with his laid-back, fun-loving personality. Two years later, Jaci ended up at Oklahoma State for college, and Levi quickly swooped in with Jaci’s older sister’s permission. After dating for seven years, Levi finally popped the question in Aspen, Colorado, on a snowy bridge with the mountains in the background. The following weekend the two returned to OKC to celebrate with friends and began planning their dream wedding at Aspen Ranch.

 

Jaci and Levi’s beautiful May wedding began Friday at Aspen Ranch with a western American barbeque rehearsal dinner– how fun! The following morning, Jaci woke up at the beautiful Aspen Ranch venue with all of her best friends and got ready for the special day ahead. Once all glammed up, Jaci slipped into her classic gown from Chantilly Bridal Studio and met Levi for their first look. After capturing photos all over the ranch, the couple headed to the church to say their “I do’s.” Jaci and Levi exchanged rings from BC Clark Jewelers and sealed their love with a kiss as they were pronounced Mr. & Mrs. Levi Gray! The couple exited the church in style with a vintage blue car.

 

Once the couple and guests arrived back at Aspen Ranch, the cocktail hour began with a live champagne wall. During that time, Jaci and Levi snuck inside the reception hall to catch a glimpse before their guests headed inside. The couple was blown away by all the beautiful florals, rentals from Marianne’s Rentals, and of course, Amy Cakes‘ creation of a life-size saddle as the groom’s cake. In addition, Eros Studios and Wooden Hearts Boutique created a seating chart using mini horseshoes with the guests’ names, making a great party favor as well. Jaci and Levi danced the night away with their guests enjoying every moment of their big day after months of planning. The two shared a final private dance before making their grand exit. If you’re not ready for this stunning wedding to end, check out the full gallery below. Cheers!

 

 

Jaci and Levi’s Favorite Detail:

“We loved our seating chart created by Eros Studios and Wooden Hearts Boutique! Mini horseshoes with the guests name attached for a cute little party favor made up the seating chart. These paired so well with our table numbers that were also gold horseshoes. It turned out exactly how I envisioned it.”
