For March, we’re showcasing a classic wedding with Italian inspiration. Keep scrolling to discover Lauren and TJ’s green, white and desert brown affair.


How the Couple Met

Before they started dating, Lauren and TJ met at the gym. “We played it cool at first, just saying hi and interacting only a little bit,” writes the bride. A few weeks later, the two went out with a group of friends and have been attached at the hip ever since!

From that day forward, the couple has spent countless hours in each other’s presence. “We can’t think of a day that we didn’t spend together after the first night we went out,” Lauren writes. On February 3, 2024, the couple tied the knot, looking forward to an eternity together.


The Wedding Day

Before the festivities of their big day, Lauren and TJ hosted a rehearsal dinner at their venue, Aspen Ranch, and spent the night there as well. “Our bridesmaids and groomsmen stayed on-site in the Aspen Manor, so the night before felt like a giant sleepover with our best friends,” writes the bride. “Aspen Ranch as a whole is incredible. The property is stunning, and the level of luxury is unparalleled.” The event came together beautifully thanks to Bailey Kubicek, who made sure every detail was pure perfection. 

With the arrival of the wedding day came getting ready. Plenty of champagne, vow-practicing and hand-holding marked the morning. The couple was dressed to the nines with Lauren in her stunning bridal gown and TJ rocking a suit from William & Lauren Custom Clothier.

 Oklahannah Plays Harp accompanied the couple’s ceremony, where not a dry eye was found. After an emotional ceremony, the couple and their loved ones headed to the reception. Thanks to decor from Mood Party Rentals, floral arrangements from XO by Haleigh Kenney and signage from Eros Studios, the space exuded a timeless elegance.

After enjoying a delicious dinner from Kam’s Kookery and a cake made by Mishelle Handy Cakes, the party began. OKC Entertainment and Events brought the beats until it was time for Lauren and TJ’s grand exit.


Lauren & TJ’s Favorite Moment

“A favorite moment was when the kids were getting ready to walk down the aisle to see their dad. Voice recordings of each of them played over the loudspeaker for TJ to hear. The whole place was sobbing, it was so emotional.”
