Tristan Keim and Jeffery Moore
September 26, 2009
Fifteen years ago, Jeffery and Tristan were concentrating on only one thing: being kids. But even as kids, they could not keep from noticing the bond they would soon build after meeting each other at Jeffery’s mother’s dance studio. Today, it is obvious why this bond was so strong from the beginning.
For five years, the couple took their relationship to the next level and dated, becoming best friends. Then, on a date to Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar at Utica Square, Tristan walked up to a table embellished with two dozen roses. After dinner, Jeffery handed her a gift, warning her not to get too excited, that it was not what she expected it to be. Tristan unwrapped the present to find a digital camera. After snapping a few pictures, Jeffery told her to go back through the camera and look at all the photographs. It was then that Tristan caught the first glimpse of her ring in a picture Jeffery had taken, and as she looked up from the camera, she found her future husband on one knee.
Six months later, on a beautiful September day, the two best friends shared their first kiss as a married couple at the Emerald Falls Golf Club in Broken Arrow.
After 15 years of being friends growing in love, the couple made the strongest vow of friendship on September 26, 2009.
The beautiful wedding was simple, but unique touches were added throughout the event, making it the Moores’ very own day. The colors of the wedding were black, white and turquoise, and a zebra pattern was added to add style and fun. Each of the bridesmaids dresses included the zebra pattern.
Even with all the extra touches like the zebra print, Tristan made sure not to get stressed about the little details of the big day. After the ceremony and reception held at the golf course, the couple honeymooned in Mexico, a sure way to relieve any bit of stress that might have been built up during the planning of a wedding for 150 guests.
