Alison & Kody’s summer wedding - Marland Mansion in Ponca City, Oklahoma.
It was very special to capture the love between this couple!
Their sweet love story..
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” –Lao Tzu
“Ever since the beginning of our friendship I’ve always known Al to be different.
She doesn’t follow the crowd just because that’s what everyone is doing or that’s the way everyone else is acting.
She has a uniqueness about her that shines bright amongst a crowd of people.
She’s a beautiful young woman who respects herself and takes pride in what she involves herself in.” – Kody
“ Kody always can make me laugh. No matter what’s going on. I’ll laugh until I cry. I love his zany sense of humor ”
( Zany – comical because of strangeness; bizarre; ludicrously and imaginatively comical; clownish in an endearing way ) – Alison
“One of the things I like the most about Al is her laugh.
And when I can get her to laugh the way she does when she’s completely and totally comfortable and having an awesome time sharing life with each other.
Making her laugh like that gives me butterflies.” – Kody
“ One of the things I found out about Kody right off, and LOVED, was that he’s a ‘handy man’.
Like, knows how to do those things guys aren’t getting taught how to do anymore such as not having to get with a mechanic
because he knows how to fix it himself. Or a plumber. Or making a storage shed. Jack of all trades. ” – Alison
“My favorite memory from our wedding day is when we did our private ring exchange and Al sang to me.
When she sings to me my world stands still for the time being.” – Kody
Kody and I had a long and very special friendship before I was ever able to open up and wholly let him in as more than just a friend.
He never strained my “strength” to love above what I was able and his “deeply loving” and coaxing me out of my cocoon,
gave me that strength to finally let myself love him in return. Kody doesn’t fit into that “all men are the same” category.
He was/is different. Everything that I never knew that I always needed/wanted
– and proof that there really are a few good men left out there – and I married the BEST one .
