Tai and Jacob’s wedding reception took place at the 21c Museum Hotel in Downtown Bentonville, Arkansas. Tai’s wedding planner, Amanda Reed from Bates Events, was amazing! She worked closely with Tai during the planning process to get to know her personality and tastes. Tai commented that Amanda was amazing to work with and made everything for their wedding day perfect! The reception was a great mix of fun and glamorous! There was two long tables set up with a mix of round and standing tables. A variety of white leather couches with gold and sequined pillows lined the dance floor. All of the tables had unique floral centerpieces created by Jules Design. Some were simple white rose and hydrangea bouquets and others were elaborate combinations of white and pink flowers in ornate silver vases.
Jacob’s only request during wedding planning process was that there would be a light up dance floor at the reception. Lightworks set up a huge light up dance floor in the middle of the reception area and multi-colored lights all around the reception area. Jacob and their guests loved it! They danced and partied into the night. They partied so hard that they knocked the power out, twice!
Tai and Jacob also included several other activities for their guests to choose from if they got tired of dancing. They hired a caricature artist, Jon Huckeby, to draw amusing pictures of their guests for them to enjoy. They even had Hookah Java set up a hookah bar and lounge on the outdoor patio. Silver lounge couches and clear acrylic chairs were set outside for the guests to relax on and enjoy the huge assortment of hookah flavors they had available.
Everything about this wedding was unique and tuned to Tai and Jacob’s personalities, even their wedding cake from Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe. It was a five tiered cake decorated in half. One half was a stunning and glam bridal cake with rhinestones and a sparkly high heel on top. The other half was a grooms cake featuring Jacob’s favorite soccer team, Chelsea!
