How the Couple Met

Macey and Nicholas first met in high school at a student council camp. At the time, they had no idea what the future held for their love story. Acquainted the summer before their senior year of high school, the two eventually drifted apart before heading off to college. Some time later, both attending Oklahoma State University, the pair reconnected at the President’s Leadership Council (PLC). As divine providence would have it, Macey’s parents also met at PLC!

Soon after, Macey brought Nicholas to her first college date party as a friend. Hitting it off, it wasn’t long before Nic asked Macey on a date. Incorporating that first date into their wedding day, Macey recalls that “the dance floor and napkins had the phrase ‘you’re a gem’ on them because those were the words Nic texted me after our first date.” The couple wed on October 15, 2023, incorporating countless details that pointed back to their love story.

 

The Wedding Day

The night before the big day, Macey and Nic’s loved ones enjoyed a stay in Tulsa’s Brut Hotel. The brutalist architecture makes this boutique hotel standout from the rest, giving guests a one-of-a-kind experience.

Come the day of, Macey spent the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids before slipping into her custom gown from Valentine Bridal. She adorned herself with accessories from the same shop to complete her look! “Sonni is a wedding dress designer whose skills are as technical as they are creative,” writes Macey. “She helped me dream up two different wedding day looks with the same dress and made all my bridal wedding day dreams come true.”

After an intimate first look, Macey and Nic said “I do” during a heartfelt ceremony. “I remember holding hands with mom walking down the aisle and making eye contact with Nic and smiling with pure joy and tears in my eyes,” the bride recalls. “It was so special walking past our family and friends who have been our greatest support system in every season of life as we stepped into a new one.”

Nic kissed his bride and the two stepped into their reception tent for the first time. Surprise and delight filled the couple as their vision was brought to life, thanks to decor and rentals from Marianne’s Rentals and Party Pro Rents.

The rest of the evening was spent mingling, eating and dancing! The reception had no shortage of personal details that shared the milestones of Macey and Nic’s relationship. “From the lanterns over the dance floor to the food served to every guest, we wanted every detail to feel like ‘us’ as a couple and tell our love story,” writes the bride.

The entire day was captured by Lauren Rader Photography. “Lauren captured every moment of our wedding day with detail and intentionality. She captured the emotion and overall feel of our wedding day in such an authentic way through every photo. I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life,” says Macey. 

Thanks to NB Productions, Macey and Nic also have a beautiful wedding video to reminisce on. “Noah captured our special day through video in a true documentary style that makes us feel like we are able to relive this day over and over again,” says Macey. “We are so thankful for his attention to detail and the moments that mean the most to us.”

After all was said and done, the couple retreated to The Mayo Hotel, where they enjoyed some much needed rest and alone time in a luxurious and historic setting.

 

Macey & Nicholas’s Favorite Moment

“One of my favorite moments would have to be our first look. Nic and I are both huge extroverts and love being surrounded by our people; however, this moment was one that was just us, which was really special. We wrote each other personal vows that we read to each other. We laughed, cried and hugged one another with pure joy, knowing that we were about to step into a lifetime together that we prayed for for so long.”
