A Glamorous Gold Wedding at Union Station in Little Rock, Arkansas
Shelby Mashburn (24 and a nurse) and Mark Cain (26 and a high school teacher) met at Electric Cowboy. One night, a year later, Mark proposed on a dock over the Arkansas River with an assortment of lit candles spelling out “Will you Marry Me?” The couple wanted a glamorous, old Hollywood-inspired wedding. They used gold for their main color, which was in everything from the attire to the reception chairs to the wedding cake. They had their ceremony at First United Methodist Church where Mark’s parents and grandparents were married. They exchanged vows on Mark’s parents’ 34th wedding anniversary, and honored them with a special dance at the reception. The reception was at Union Station, an old train station in Little Rock. They decorated with a mixture of tall and short white floral arrangements to add some dimension to the room. But, the best part was the delicious comfort food menu. They set up little buffet stations around the room for guests to snack on. They had cheeseburger sliders, mini corn dogs, popcorn and a DIY potato bar with martini glass bowls. They also had a cheesecake bar with five different flavors of cheesecakes in addition to the two-tier gold wedding cake and huge Missouri Cardinal-themed groom’s cake. At the end of the night, the newlyweds danced to “Heaven” by DJ Sammy, Krispy Kreme donut favors and a grand exit in a red 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible.
