Patrick, Carlson tie the knot

NORMAN — Julie Elizabeth Patrick and Brian Eugene Carlson exchanged wedding vows July 12, 2013, on the beach in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., at Water Color Inn and Resort, with the Pastor Samuel Blowes officiating.

The bride is the daughter of Laurie and Larry Patrick, of Norman. She is the granddaughter of Mary Ann Stewart, of Durant, and Ed Stewart, of College Station, Texas, and Jessie Lea Patrick and the late Frank Patrick, of Sherman, Texas.

The groom is the son of Judy and Bruce Carlson, of Billings, Mont. He is the grandson of Beverly Friman and the late Durwood Friman, of Great Falls, Mont., and Kathy Carlson and the late Gene Carlson, of Pasco, Wash.

The bride was escorted by her father to the steel drum accompaniment of “Canon in D.” Her Allure ivory lace gown featured a sweetheart neckline, fitted bodice with lightly beaded straps, scalloped hem with satin-covered buttons down the back and extending the length of the train. The ivory fingertip veil was trimmed with crystals. She wore a strand of pearls given to her mom by her dad on the day she was born for something sentimental.

The bride carried a tropical bouquet of hydrangeas, calla lilies, cabbage roses, green cymbidium orchids, green hypericum berries, fuji mums, with stems wrapped in ivory ribbon. In the bouquet was a locket with a picture of her late grandfather, Frank Patrick.

The bridesmaids wore sleeveless watermelon pink, knee-length chiffon dresses and carried a smaller tropical bouquet similar to the brides.

The groom and groomsmen wore dark charcoal suits with the Caribbean blue striped neck ties. Their boutonnieres were green cymbidium orchids with hypericum berries.

The wedding party attendants were matron of honor Lindsay Schlueter Freeman, of Dallas, and maid of honor Katie Blum, of New York City.

The bridesmaids were Lauren Landreth, of Atlanta, and Michele Lesseg, of Edmond.
