Konawa — Jennifer Lynn Miller and Kyle Andrew Johnson exchanged wedding vows in a 6 p.m. ceremony June 29, 2013. David Spain officiated the double–ring ceremony in the First Christian Church, Norman.

The bride is the daughter of John and Jan Miller, Ponca City. She is the granddaughter of Don and Charlotte Call, Winfield, Kan., and Marcella Linder, Glendale, Ariz., and the late Keith Miller.

The bridegroom is the son of Arthur and Sandra Johnson of Konawa. He is the grandson of Ruth McClure, also of Konawa, and the late Sandy McClure, and the late Ella Joy Lyday.

Flower girls were Savannah Call of Bixby and Lauren Treadway of Broken Arrow, cousins of the bride. Signs bearing the message “Here,” “Comes,” “the Bride” were carried by sign holders Cameron Treadway, Broken Arrow, Isaac Call, Bixby, and Owen and Landon Dent, Wichita, Kan., all nephews of the bride.

Maid of honor was Jenny Gilbert, Oklahoma City. Bridesmaids were Allison Fine, also of Oklahoma City; Maleah Oliver, Broken Arrow, Alison Sylvester, cousin of the bride, of Durango, Colo.; and Danielle Jensen, Houston.

Chris Coffin of Blanchard stood as best man.  Groomsmen were Niles Johnson and Beau Johnson, brothers of the bridegroom, of Konawa; Zach McClure, cousin of the bridegroom, of Dallas; and Jordan Miller, brother of the bride, Stillwater.

For her bridal ensemble, Jennifer selected a custom ivory gown with a fit-and flair silhouette and sweetheart neckline. The gown was accented with beaded lace appliqués embellished with pearls, beads and sequins sweeping to the scallop-edged chapel-length train. A long illusion veil edged with pearls and beadwork completed her bridal ensemble.

The bridal bouquet was hand tied and wrapped in burlap and lace. The wrap was embellished with an ivory pearl pin and a pearl and coral handmade Italian cameo brooch borrowed from the bride’s Grandmother Call. The family piece served as the traditional something old and something borrowed. A vintage pearl necklace, bracelet, and earrings, given to the bride from her parents, served as something new, and blue rhinestone “I Do” stickers on the bottom of the bride’s shoes represented something blue.

Dr. Allan Ross, organist, played Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” as the bridal party proceeded to the altar, and Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus” as the bride’s processional.

The bride’s parents hosted a reception at the Hall at the Railhouse in Norman. The reception’s décor featured a romantic shabby chic theme befitting the rustically elegant Railhouse. Table decorations were floral and candle arrangements in a variety of bottles and jars accented with burlap and pearls, each created by the bride and her mother.

The brides’ cake was a four-tier confection of dark chocolate and French vanilla with a Grand Marnier-flavored butter cream frosting with a custom pearl initial “J” at the cake’s top.

The bridegroom was surprised with a strawberry groom’s cake bearing a sculpted Sooner Schooner with Pistol Pete at the reigns. The schooner paid homage to the groom’s alma mater and his days as a member of the football team, and Pistol Pete was a nod to the bride’s alma mater.

After an evening of dancing and celebration, the newlyweds departed in a 1928 Ford Model A amidst a cloud of bubbles and streamers. Following a honeymoon in the Bahamas, the Johnsons have established their home in Oklahoma City. Jennifer is a land technician with Chesapeake Energy Corporation. Kyle is petroleum engineer with HighMount Exploration and Production.
