This fall we traveled west to Tulsa, OK for one of Jeremy’s childhood friends wedding. Since we were only going to be a few hours from Dallas, we flew there first to see BFF Karen & her hubby Paul. They picked us up from the airport and we headed out to Southfork to sight see…. too bad it was pouring, so we opted to skip the tour and went out to lunch and check in our hotel, NYLO Plano. We tend to pick boutique hotels from places like Groupon & RueLaLa to avoid the monotony of chain hotels. Last time we stayed in La Meridian Stoneleigh and the Adolphus… both far from boring… just as NYLO proved to be as well. With it’s minimal interior and frosted shower…. we were glad we were all close friends, because the bathroom provided minimal privacy (which I suppose fit the rest of the room’s aesthetic) …. bottom line, the hotel was very cool, but don’t pile into one room with a bunch of people!
That night we attended a Rangers baseball game, and the next morning we were off to get a rental car and drive to Tulsa. Al & Jenna’s wedding was at the Tulsa Historical Society, a crazy beautiful building and garden. We pulled up to the wedding and realized I’d left my camera in our hotel room!! So, the next morning we drove back over so I could take a few photos, it was so pretty. We hit Tallgrass for brunch (OMG, so good!!!) and then boarded our plane home. A quick trip, but a great one! While we were out there, one of my friends also tied the knot back here in NC. I hated we had already committed to go to Tulsa and had to miss their wedding on the same day… so I photographed their beautiful invitation!! I asked Kristin who did them, and she said she did!!! Aren’t they gorgeous!?
*REMINDER* I’m still hoping to shoot in the Waco/Dallas/Austin area in 2015!
