This OKC Engagement Starts Barside and Ends in a Botanical Garden


If a stunning downtown OKC engagement session is what you’re looking for, allow us to present Molly and Dominic’s gorgeous gallery, captured by Andi Bravo Photography, that starts formal and barside and ends in a flower-filled botanical garden. Talk about the best of both worlds! Molly and Dominic’s love story began when they first met in October of 2016 in Knoxville, Tennessee. ​Molly was attending graduate school at the University of Tennessee while Dominic was moving there for work. There was a wine bar across the street from his new condo that Molly and her girlfriends liked to meet up at, and they met very serendipitously outside his condo when Dominic was moving in and the movers hadn’t yet arrived with his things! How fun! Though they originally planned to be wed at the historic Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum on May 23, 2020COVID-19 had other plans. Molly and Dominic postponed their wedding plans two different times before deciding they would wait until May 15, 2021, to finally tie the knot – pandemic or otherwise! This couple can’t wait to get out of corona season to have the elegant, enchanted forest wedding of their dreams with help from vendors like Trochta’s Flowers and Garden Center, Marianne’s Rentals, and Brushed Salon and Makeup Studio to name just a few! We can’t wait for these lovebirds to be wed, or to see just how stunning their moody green wedding will be! From barside to botanical gardens, this engagement session has us swooning from start to finish! Read on for a note from the soon-to-be bride about how he first popped the question. Cheers to Molly and Dominic!

From the bride: “​Dominic had planned a dinner date followed by drinks with friends to celebrate my birthday. Well, that’s what I thought we would be celebrating anyway. The staff at Vast were in on his plans, and after dinner, the manager came out and told us that our dessert wasn’t quite ready yet and offered to show us around while we were waiting. He offered to take our photo in front of a window with a beautiful view of downtown OKC. I turned to Dominic to pose for the photo and was caught completely by surprise when Dominic dropped to his knee and offered me a lifetime together.”
