Lake Overholser

Lake Overholser is closer to the city and yet significantly secluded. The place is quite vast, and you can find a myriad of scenic spots with different themes. Are you bored with the lakeshore greenery shots? You can hire a paddleboat and get some adventurous clicks. For some down-to-earth pictures, visit the bike park. Please remember that most of the routes will be closed by 6 pm. So, plan accordingly.

Lake Hefner

We already saw a lake destination in this list, but Lake Hefner adds a more clichéd beauty to your clicks. This south shore, closer to the marina, adds a fresh look to your pictures. The only catch here is that it is not open throughout the year. If you are planning for a summer or a fall wedding, Lake Hefner would be your perfect spot. The lakeshore is a leveled and mowed grass ground, and you need not worry about over-grown reeds ruining the ambiance. It is ideal for the sunset and early morning pictures.

Overholser Mansion

Every girl’s fantasy is a fairytale wedding, and Overholser Mansion is the right destination for a princess-style photoshoot. It is a historical mansion of the 20th century. The interiors of the place are frozen in time to give a palace look. Your traditional wedding gown and suit would add more beauty to the ambiance by creating a Narnia look. The surrounding tree-less green plot allows you to capture the complete structure of the mansion in your pictures.

Myriad Botanical Gardens

Myriad Gardens is one of the clichéd bridal and wedding photoshoot sites. Thus, the chances of running into another wedding photoshoot during your visit are higher. However, the place is vast enough to provide a secluded and green look. For romantic pics, the best time to visit is right before sunset. You can pick backdrops with indigenous flowers, urban cityscape, water fountain or rock streams, and more. This destination adds more of a casual look to your pictures. If you have a dog, you can add him/her to your photographs as it is a dog-friendly park.

Flaming Lips Alley

Oklahoma City has its share of modern façade too. If you wish to capture that essence in your wedding photographs, the Flaming Lips Alley is the best place. You can find art museums, art deco downtown structures, canal, and more. For a romantic touch, click some on-the-boat pictures during a hokey canal tour.

Other common downtown destinations perfect for wedding photo sessions are Scissor Tail Park, Devon town, Automobile Alley, and more.

Street art, parks, downtown entertainment sites, historic structures, and a nostalgic ambiance are the trademarks of Oklahoma City. These destinations add an intimate look to your pictures like they were taken in your backyard, where you grew up. Such beauty seldom comes from chic urban destinations.
