Paige Sywenki and Robert Johnson’s Fall Garden Wedding Captured by Sarah Libby Photography
Paige and Robert were initially set up by mutual friends in the fall of 2014. After spending more time together, it was clear the two had something special. Robert planned the perfect rooftop proposal after Paige had shown him engagement photos at the same spot. Before meeting friends for dinner, Robert took Paige on the roof where she saw a rug lined with candles. She turned to see Robert on one knee! He even had a photographer to capture the entire moment as their friends excitedly watched from a rooftop across the street.
On November 12, 2016, Paige and Robert were married at Coles Garden. The couple’s romantic garden wedding dazzled in shades of maroon, gold, ivory and pink. The bride walked down the aisle in a fit and flare Casablanca gown that featured beaded lace and tulle with a sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves. She complemented the look with earrings by Nadri and a small gold ring that her father gave to her mother as a promise ring in high school.
Every element from their big day was exactly what they imagined. The four-tier cake by Andrea Howard Cakes consisted of alternating layers of vanilla and pink champagne; the confection was beautiful and delicious. Oklahoma Strings Quartet performed the music for the ceremony and DJ Connection provided the reception entertainment to keep all the guests dancing the whole night. The couple danced to “To the Moon and Back” by Luke Bryan for their first dance.
For the bride and groom, the most memorable moment from their big day was changing into “wifey” and “hubby” T-shirts, and having a private last dance before their grand exit. They loved the intimate moment together as husband and wife at the end of their special night. Paige and Robert could feel the excitement from their friends and family as they made their exit in an adorable classic car. They will never forget that moment or the joy they felt the entire day.
The couple honeymooned in beautiful St. Lucia and now resides in Oklahoma City.
