Talk about breathtaking! These stunning shots from Peyton Rainey Photography are nothing short of perfection.

The couple met through mutual friends in college, but it wasn’t until years later on their first day of PA school that Alex finally took notice of a certain bald man with a beard walking in late to class, looking for a seat. From there, the rest is history! When Mitch finally decided to pop the question, he lead Alex on a romantic scavenger hunt full of meaningful places in their relationship, with friends planted along the way to deliver clues. Alex found Mitch at her last destination, the PA classroom where their relationship first began! Mitch had transformed the dingy classroom with candles, twinkly lights, rose petals and live music. He got down on one knee, and of course, Alex said yes, only to be surprised yet again by her entire family and closest friends coming together for an engagement party!

Alex and Mitch will say their “I do’s” on January 27, 2018 at The Springs in Norman. Orchestrated by Back Meadow Events, their big day will take on a winter desert theme.We can’t wait to see Alex and Mitch’s wedding dreams become a reality! Cheers to this beautiful couple!

The Mayo Hotel – When this first class, 19-story hotel opened in 1925, The Mayo Hotel quickly became a social hub of high society. Fast forward to 2001, when after being long-abandoned and destined for the wrecking-ball, it was purchased by the Snyder family and renovated into the luxurious hotel it is today. It continues to be one of Tulsa’s premiere event spaces.
