When a pair of wedding photographers get hitched, it’s finally their opportunity to show off their personal style in a wedding day that is completely their own. Melissa and Josh of Melissa Green Photography threw a totally chic woodland wedding in Oklahoma City at The Stone Barn at Blueberry Hill. With organic styling in mind, the pair achieved a naturally elegant outdoor wedding complete with farm tables, sophisticated black candlesticks, and plenty of greenery.

Simply put, I wanted to look chic, modern, and cool. I love gold and sequins, so I incorporated that with my bridesmaids dresses. We all kept it simple, other than that. I was open to my bridesmaids accessorizing however they felt prettiest, and to wear shoes they felt good in. I loved that my dress fit me so well and was easy to move in. I felt relaxed in it. My hair was up for the ceremony, down for the reception. I desired for the reception to be full on party mode, so I added a flower crown and bright neon lipstick as well.
The moments leading up to the ceremony are most vivid. The anticipation, the butterflies, the mind-blowing-realization that we’re about to get friggin’ married…something we’ve waited so long for and have been dreaming about since Day 11 together. It was so surreal, overwhelmed with joy, anxiousness, and love from Jesus.
Being wedding photographers, we’ve really seen it all. I think that helped us decide that we wanted it to be natural and organic, with good vibes all around. We wanted the wedding to have a laid-back feel because we’re very laid back people, while at the same time feeling classy and community-driven.

Wow! Wonderful wedding photography. I love all the pictures.
My wife often comments we need to get married again because of all the cool new ideas. And now that I’ve seen the donut wall in convinced she’s right.
Would love to know where the display for the S’mores came from.
