Sheena Smith and Nicholas Colclough tied the knot this summer at the Little Rock Marriott in style.  The wedding, which donned a flower wall by Eminent Planning and Central Arkansas Entertainment created from 4000 flowers from Cabbage Rose Florist and a carpet of rose petals down the aisle, looked like something straight out of a fairytale.  And the couple's story is just as elaborate and beautiful as their wedding.

After multiple attempts at coordinating a first meeting, the day finally came...except there was one small dilemma.  Sheena came down with a horrible cold.   After speaking with Nick on the phone and attempting to cancel their date, he offered to bring over chicken soup. Sheena was very hesitant because a man she had never met before would have to come to her house for their very first date. After thinking about the horrible sinus headache and awful congestion she agreed to allow him to bring her some soup.  Little did she know this would be one of the best decisions she ever made.   Can you guess what the first course was at their reception?  Why chicken soup, of course!

"They both wanted decor and lighting that was more than average.  As we began to work in the fine details I was really nervous on the inside because we had never done anything on this large a scale at this point.  We met with Joe Snell with Central Arkansas Entertainment about draping, lighting, DJ, band, and helping us build the flower wall.  Nick came up with the idea of a flower wall for the head table as a surprise for Sheena. He didn't want her to know, so it would be the wow factor for the room.  Once Joe heard the idea he was sold on it, so we began to plan and calculate all 4000 flowers," says Centrina Washington with Eminent Planning.

"Once we saw Sheena's face the first time she looked at the room, it made all the hard work worth it," says Joe Snell with Central Arkansas Entertainment.

Vendors involved with Sheena and Nick's wedding are Central Arkansas Entertainment, Eminent Planning, Cabbage Rose, Sky Touch_E_Photos, Tawanna Campbell-Berry Band, Low's, and Eminent Planning.
