How do I explain the fact that I get to work with some of THE COOLEST couples on earth?  I can’t.  I’m just so thankful.  Case in point…Micha & Brent.  These two are AWESOME!  They are two of the most laid back people around.  Both were cool calm and collected throughout their entire wedding day.  The first phrase I can think of to explain them would totally be amazing friends.  The fact that they are amazing friends to everyone around them.  People LOVE them and they adore those invested in their lives.  Heck even the moments I got to work with them I felt so appreciated and loved.  I seriously adore that about them.

The whole day was glorious.  Sunny, breezy, just perfect.  Brent held it together, just barely, as his bride walked down towards him.  Both sets of parents could not hide their happiness.  It was beautiful.  Claire and I were so thankful to be a part of it all.  Thank you Micha & Brent for being so AWESOME!

Some of Micha & Brent’s memories from the day:
Q. What was your favorite part about the wedding?

A. My favorite part of the wedding was seeing Brent for the very first time when the doors opened. When my dad and I started to walk down the aisle I became speechless and extremely calm. If you know me, you know I am NEVER speechless or calm!!!

Q. What was one quirky of crazy thing that happened on your wedding day?

A. I was told after the ceremony that when the shuttle left the hotel to take the guys to Briscoe (Brent, groomensmen, ring barers, and dads), they accidently left my dad at the hotel!!! Brent told the shuttle driver they left without my dad and needed to turn around to get him. The shuttle driver told him he couldn’t turn around because they were already running late. Brent said, “The man we forgot is the one running the show, so I suggest you turn around to get him.” So…the shuttle turned around and my dad was waiting outside. If you know my daddy this is no surprise that he was left behind.

Q. What was the most special moment on your wedding day?

A. It’s hard to pick the most special moment, because I look back and can think of quite a few. A special moment was when I put on my Oma’s (dad’s mom) amethyst ring and seeing her corsage attached to my bouquet meant the absolute world to me. Our wedding day marked a week from her passing, but I knew I had a piece of her with me and it reminded me she had the best seat in the house.  Also talking with my dad during our father/daughter dance about my Oma, how beautiful the day had turned out, and how many people had traveled to be with us for our wedding day.

Q. Any special details you would like to tell us about?

A. I did indeed do quite a bit myself and loved every bit of it!!!! I made the girls’ (bridesmaids, house party, and flowergirls) necklaces and bracelets they wore for the wedding. I added the embellishments (burlap ribbon, brooches, and jute rope) to all the mason jar that were used for the aisle markers during the ceremony and the medium centerpieces for the reception. I made the “And they lived happily ever after” canvas that sat on a table in the main foyer. I put together the bride and groom “Mason Jar Flutes” and added some SASSINESS more to mine than Brent’s!! I decorated the “M” and “B” with jute rope and flowers that sat in the bar area (I think??) I also made my throw garter. I’m not sure if all of our groomsmen used their mugs during the reception, but I made their mason jar mugs.

Q. Where will you be as a couple in five years? Hopes, dreams, kids, etc.?

A. We hope to have a couple of kiddos, with Brent being a twin, maybe we will be blessede with twins!!!! I (Micha) also hope to be in a masters program to become a family nurse practitioner. Brent hopes to continue to grow in his position with Sooner Pipe. We also have a dream to own a few acres to build a home on. Hopefully by this time we will be able to finally start the process of searching for the perfect piece of land!

Q. What do you look forward to the most about being married?

A. Brent would say he looks forward to being that old married couple having dinner and drinks at the end of the bar in a restaurant. We both look forward to growing old and strong together and building a family. We are excited to see what the future holds for raising children. We know we are in for a treat, because we were quite the characters for our parents.
