Nothing brings people together like Arkansas Razorback football and no one knows this better than Tea’ Jones of Little Rock and Cornelius Boone from Smackover. All it took was a trip to a game to rekindle a relationship that had dwindled after dating in law school at the U of A.
On a trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands, on the night of her birthday, Cornelius surprised Tea’ with a candlelit dinner on the beach. With a perfect sunset as a backdrop, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
A girl after our own hearts, Tea’ was head-over-heels for flowers and sparkle. She was inspired by the Black Beauty roses her father always planted growing up and the deep red stayed with her from childhood. She added Tiffany Blue and platinum for shine, with overflowing flowers at both the ceremony and reception, a perfect addition to the urban elegance vibe.
The couple paid homage to their law school origins in the décor by naming guest tables after their law courses and covering the groom’s cake table with law books and the Scales of Justice. They also threw in boxes of Chicago-inspired cheese and caramel mixed popcorn for guests as a nod to the city where Tea’ and Cornelius shared special memories during their relationship.
