Introducing a love story between two childhood friends who became husband and wife.
Coordinated by Wedding Planner Mellie Bee, we’re excited to share Ann and Ricky’s beautifully rustic and elegant Oak Canyon Nature Center wedding ceremony and their modern chic FUN Mon Amour Banquet wedding reception!
their love story
Ann and Ricky were childhood friends!
Having met in 6th grade, they started dating in junior high. JUNIOR HIGH SWEETHEARTS! How romantic is that?
After moving away and back again, their relationship grew ’til they became husband and wife.
his romantic proposal (from the groom)
Ann went on a trip to Vietnam with her family for 2 weeks. I planned a welcome home/Christmas party (because she had to miss Christmas with everyone). On the day that she flew back, we all surprised her and that’s when I got down on one knee and proposed!
the wedding day
It was a gorgeous morning ceremony at the beautiful Oak Canyon Nature Center.
The details were SOOOO ADORABLE!
Ann designed this adorable purple heart board and placed a card and gift for each of her lovely bridesmaids. It greeted them as they got up during their getting ready for the wedding day. What a perfect gift for the bridesmaids!
Beautiful rings designed by Mimi’s Jewelry!
Ann, seriously, you were GORGEOUS!
Loved hanging out with these awesome ladies! They were seriously SO much fun. And all of them beautiful!
Ah, the card from Ricky – SOOO sweet! Love the cover <3
The beautiful flowers were by KC Floral Designs!

Grand purple wedding reception
What a great and fun night!
The bridal party had to guess which question was referring to the bride or the groom. They each had blown up photos to show off their vote. So much fun to watch.
These ADORABLE flower girls sang, “Let It Go” to the bride + groom!!! SOOOO cute!
A wonderful celebration
Ann and Ricky, so much love surrounded you both on your wedding day. You two are the reason we love what we do. It is a blessing to be able to witness your love and the love you have for others. There were so many amazing moments and details on your wedding day. We had an absolute blast being there to capture you two. We pray God richly blesses you both in your love and life together <3
