An Elegant Christian Wedding at NOAH’S in Little Rock, Arkansas
Kelly and Joanna’s chic summer wedding at NOAH’S Event Venue took place on a sunny, idyllic day in the south. This fabulous couple pulled off a gorgeous celebration that perfectly balanced upscale sophistication with stylish glamour. Using their Christian faith as a focal point, Kelly and Joanna chose a classy color palette of gold and cream with a feisty, bold kick of crimson to give their wedding design a bit of sass.
Joanna and Kelly tied the knot in NOAH’S special ceremony room, with a full house of impressive high-backed banquet chairs for their guests, a stunning custom ceiling design with swooping organza draperies and twinkle lights, and a raised stage with a large, beautiful wooden cross and fresh flowers as a backdrop for the I Do’s. The pair used candles to burn knotted ropes as a reference to a favorite scripture from the Bible, symbolizing the strength and longevity of their happy union. We always love to see our couples personalizing their wedding at NOAH’S and bringing their unique beliefs to their vow ceremonies!
The wedding ensembles were elegant and classic, with a hint of glitz to spice things up. Joanna wore a beaded ivory gown with a lace-illusion back and a long, fluffy train. Our favorite part of Joanna’s outfit? Her audacious red heels to match her bright bouquet, which showed off her fun, outgoing personality! Kelly was utterly handsome in a crisp black suit, pristine white tie, and a gorgeous, extra-fancy calla lily boutonniere. Joanna’s bridesmaids were dressed in jaw-dropping scarlet red gowns with daring one-shouldered straps and bouquets of white blossoms.
The details of Joanna and Kelly’s reception were simply to-die-for: huge, glorious arrangements of blood-red roses, calla lilies, ferns, and gerber daisies; We loved the fun, laid-back activities the couple came up with to keep their guests entertained. In one, guests were invited to highlight their favorite verse of scripture and sign their name next to it, making a lovely and sentimental keepsake for the couple to peruse over the course of their lives together. In another, guests could write down their best date night ideas on popsicle sticks for Joanna and Kelly to choose from when they were planning a night out. So simple yet so adorable! From the softly flickering golden votives to the refreshing pops of red in the decor to the cute, shabby-chic blackboard signage, this reception was classy, elegant, and fun from start to finish.
We can’t forget about Joanna and Kelly’s amazing five-tier cake! This towering white confection was the show-stopper of the evening, featuring a sweet golden “S” initial, hand-piped lacework, and piles of red roses, lush greenery, and delicate baby’s breath. We’ve seen a lot of wedding cakes at NOAH’S, and this one is at the top of the list!
When it was finally time to end the beautiful evening, Joanna and Kelly exited the building to meet their adoring guests, who bid them farewell with hundreds of twinkling sparklers. We loved spending this special day with this special couple. Love and best wishes to the newlyweds!
