Real weddings: February 2015
Tulsa couples tie the knot
Holly Drewry and Chase Turner
Sept. 13, 2014
Tulsans Turner and Drewry first met in 2001 at The University of Tulsa, but it took a second encounter at the school’s 2010 homecoming for the pair to begin dating.
After three years, Turner, a distribution scheduler for NGL Energy Partners, proposed to Drewry, director of account management at People Strategy, at Christmas in front of many friends. TU’s Sharp Chapel was the ceremony venue, and a reception followed at the Mayo Hotel. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, followed by a plated dinner and dancing.
Paige Jones and Keith Moore
Dec. 13, 2014
Jones and Moore met at Oklahoma State University, fell in love and moved to Tulsa after graduation to begin their careers.
Moore surprised Jones with a breakfast proposal on Sept. 28, 2013.
“We then went to celebrate,” Jones says. “I found that Keith had planned a surprise engagement party with all our closest family and friends.”
The couple, who both work for Bank of Oklahoma, married at First Presbyterian Church. A reception followed at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame.
Lesley Patterson and Kris Stone
June 7, 2014
In 2004, Bishop Kelley High School students Stone and Patterson met in speech class. Five years later, the pair reconnected at a tailgate party. (Score one for love.)
Stone popped the question after the couple’s fourth anniversary. He planned to propose in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, but once he had the ring, he couldn’t wait two weeks. As Patterson came home from work, Stone was on bended knee with flowers and Champagne.
Lindsey Lancaster and Boz Cannon
Nov. 1, 2014
For Cannon and Lancaster, a blind date turned out to be true love. Cannon, originally from Allen, Texas, fell for the Broken Arrow native and, after a three-year courtship, proposed on the couple’s anniversary.
Cannon is an oil, sales and service representative for Safety Kleen. Lancaster is a hairdresser at Casey Winner Salon.
The couple wed in front of approximately 200 guests in a rustic, country-themed ceremony and reception at Tulsa’s PostOak Lodge.
