Letter From the Editor


Oklahoma Magazine delivers another fine lading of intriguing articles about Oklahoma and Oklahomans from across our fair state, and a wedding guide that will inspire your own marvelous matrimonial ceremony.

From our 2017 Oklahomans of the Year selections to a small-town philanthropist and a chef serving up Tin Lizzie burgers in Oklahoma City, the people in this issue have compelling stories to tell. Learn about a potential law that will appear on the next state ballot. Read about longhorn parades, community policing and a comic convention returning to Pryor Creek.

Each January we also bring you weddings – from flowers and cake to where to say, “I do.” We have compiled an insightful collection of illuminative pages filled with the latest trends, beloved traditions and a timeline to help you plan your special day. But don’t just read it in the magazine; you can meet cream-of-the-crop wedding planners, caterers, designers, musicians and venue hosts by attending The Oklahoma Wedding Show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13, at Tulsa’s Expo Square Central Park Hall. With $12,000 of Dream Wedding Giveaways up for grabs, it’s a can’t-miss event. Visit oklahomawedding.com for details.
