Oklahoma singer-songwriter Jake Flint and his bride, Brenda, didn’t seem to let the wet weather dampen their spirits as they exchanged vows on Saturday at a remote homestead between Claremore and Owasso. 

“It was rainy, but he’d rented a 40-by-60 circus tent. … They put up a bunch of carpets over the mud and then got two pieces of three-and-a-quarter-inch plywood and set it on the ground — and that was my stage. Jake goes, ‘Is that gonna be all right for you?’ And I go, ‘Jake, that’s perfect.’ A piece of plywood or a flatbed trailer is where I shine,” said Norman-based one-man band Mike Hosty, who played the wedding.  

“I still have the mud in my old van … but it was just a fun wedding. And it’s just a tragedy what happened.”
