Laken & Cody Married! 5.9.09 {norman wedding photographers}

From the first time Christian met Laken and Cody, he knew their relationship was special.  Getting to know the both of them, and their friends and family has been very meaningful for us.

Laken’s AMAZING flowers were created by the very talented Tony Foss. Beautiful cake made by Deborah of Fancy cakes etc.  The wedding and reception was held at Thunderbird Chapel in Norman.

We thought we would do something a little different on the blog. Instead of us telling the story, we thought we would ask our bride and groom to tell us about their day in their own eyes.

Their Story

“First of all we would like to thank everyone for taking the time to view the moments captured on mine and Cody’s day. For those of you who were able to attend our wedding, we hope you enjoy reminiscing as much as we have; for those who were unable to attend, we hope the captured moments translate into the beautiful memories you were unable to experience at the time!

We would like to thank our parents; the greatest gift you have given to both of us is making us who we are so we could become what we are…for each other. If not for you we would merely be working towards all that was so graciously handed to us rather than looking back at all the remarkable memories with such love and appreciation!

Though words cannot describe the joy and love shared with our friends and family on May 9, 2009, the images speak for themselves very clearly. We were blessed to not only share our most exciting & intimate moments with Christian and Brandi Traina, but to build an amazing friendship in the process…having a total blast doing so!!!

Love and thanks to all,
Cody & Laken Crawford ; )”
