Joyful Sophistication at Eastbank Venue | Cedar Rapids, Iowa


A small sign at the reception appropriately states, "We've Waited a Pandemic for this Day...Celebrate Accordingly". Yes, they sure did have to wait (and wait, and wait) for their wedding day to arrive due to the pandemic and multiple postponements. However I believe Shannon and Nathan hit the nail on the head with their unforgettable wedding and reception that was filled with sophisticated decor, beautifully classic floral designs, and plenty of live entertainment-dueling pianos, caribbean drums, and yes, even a magician!


It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their wedding journey. And on wedding day, Shannon was such a delight to watch as we set up! She was absolutely beaming, soaking in every little moment and detail she'd planned meticulously and waited so patiently for.


For the flowers, we complemented her shades of ocean blue and gold color scheme with garden style designs of crisp white roses, ranunculus, veronica, waxflower, and hydrangea with accents of pale blue delphinium and plenty of soft dusty greenery. Everything looked so beautiful in the modern space at Eastbank Venue!
