Kristin + Gabriel | The Springs Events Skiatook Winter Wedding

Kristin and Gabe got married last December on a chilly day at the beautiful Springs Events in Skiatook near Tulsa. These two met through volleyball and I loved how they incorporated personal touches throughout their wedding. 

Gabe's three children were a big part of the day and were so happy for Gabe and Kristin. The photo of them grinning at each other walking back down the aisle right after the ceremony will forever be one of my favorites. 

A few weeks before the wedding, Kristin's stepdad was in a bad accident while doing a firefighting drill. He broke his back and his ankle and required several weeks in the hospital and multiple surgeries. They didn't know if he would be able to walk Kristin down the aisle or dance with her at her wedding. Two of his fellow firefighters walked her down the stairs and he took her the rest of the way. Tears leaked out of the corners of my eyes as they made their journey toward Gabriel and I was so thankful for autofocus! At the reception he ditched his crutches for a quick minute to dance with her and I was so honored to document that special time for their family. 

Kristin picked a great team of vendors to work with. Her dress was one of my favorite ever and she was actually able to ditch the sleeves when she got hot tearing it up on the dance floor!
