Wonderful Weddings I’ve Photographed

Wonderful Weddings from Charlene Day on Vimeo.

Elvis

Sandy and Paul were married at Christ The King Church.

I met a extremely talented Elvis impersonator at Paul and Sandy’s wedding reception.

Elvis was a surprise for Paul.

Aside from being an Elvis fan, Paul is the owner of  Paul’s Meat Market on Old Greenwood.

This isn’t Rocky’s real job, this is just a fun thing for him.

He’s been playing Elvis since he was around four years old.

I have his information if anyone would like to check with him for availability. He only does a few events per year.

If You Really Want Me To

If you really want me to, I’ll leave your Gala apple color. It’s not a problem.

apple!

I absolutely love this selective color, unlike some trendy stuff I’ve seen, and blogged about. 🙂

Here’s your apple, Nicole. It turned out quite nice.

When I started typing the post title the words seemed familiar to me. Hmmm, maybe because I’ve been singing Ginny Owens‘ song “If You Want Me To”, today.

The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I don’t know the reason why you brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I will go through the valley
If You want me to

Wedding March on Guitar

This man teaches how to play the Wedding March song. This video is the song all the way through.

There’s another video of him going slowly through the song with instructions.

My son is playing at his cousin’s wedding next month.

Newcastle Bridge

There are some nice old bridges remaining around Oklahoma if you know where to look.
I had a photo shoot planned that didn’t work out, so I took the opportunity to take some cool photos at the old Newcastle Bridge, also called the Ozark Trail Bridge, near Newcastle Oklahoma.


The bridge spans the South Canadian River and was Oklahoma’s first federal aid project. It opened in 1923, but sits unused beside the Interstate 44 bridge today. You can still see the original timber flooring on this neat old bridge. Before the bridge was built folks had to ford the river with their horses and wagons to travel down May Avenue in Oklahoma City to the farmer’s market.

Bluegrass

Bluegrass music at it’s best can be found in the most
out of the way spots.

Friday evening in Roland we heard Crossfire from Fayetteville,
The Sunshine Girls,
Aaron Day, Vida Brooks and High Mountain Bluegrass,
among many others.

It’s a great little place there in Roland, to relax and listen to old-timey favorite songs.
Songs maybe you haven’t heard since your
grandma used to sing to you.

If you bring your own mandolin, dobro , fiddle or guitar, you can hang out in one of the back rooms and jam to your heart’s content. If you’re a beginner, they still welcome you.
Just take your turn around the circle,
and when it’s your turn to pick the song don’t
be a playin’ anything that doesn’t at least sound country or bluegrassy!
