the grass prairie paradise.

are you ready for one of the most beautiful blasts from the past? this wedding is reminiscent of albums i look through with my mom yet it is one of the most memorable and stunning weddings i have seen in awhile. their amazing details and crazy cool vintage finds will leave your mind spinning with ideas for your own special day. we dare you to look at their vendor list, these two made sure their wedding had the most unique and authentic vintage touches at a budget price!  mark + lindsey’s vintage oklahoma wedding captured by chelsea diane photography is pretty much awesome… we may be more than just mildly obsessed with their vibe.

peace + love, j

“As I’ve said before, Mark + Lindsey are a one-of-a-kind couple. I flew out to Oklahoma to shoot this big day and was lucky to get to spend an entire week with this amazing musical crew of people. We drove out to pawhuska (an hour away from Tulsa). Pawkhuska was an itty western city. We got to stay at an amazing vintage, rustic, slightly haunted ranch, the Xube Ranch (thanks Grant for letting us stay). It was a dream. When you walked outside at night, you could see every single star in the sky. There were 10,000 acres of prairie waiting for us outside the doors.

The wedding was at this amazing theatre. You walked in and it was like walking into a time capsule. The wedding + the reception did not let us down, everyone boogied to MJ + our big group went out to the Tall Grass Prairie after + had a mini shoot.
Important note : Mark+ Lindsey are very much family people. In memory of Mark’s late mother, Lindsey wore her wedding gown. It fit like a glove + she looked remarkable in it. It was a very sweet moment for Mark to see his bride in his mothers dress.”
