FAMU Love Blossoms in Blue and Yellow Georgia Wedding

FAMU Love Blossoms in Blue and Yellow Georgia Wedding 10

Christina was an HBCU Belle working in Florida A&M’s bookstore when she met the love of her life Rashan. Their college sweetheart story blossoms into this southern romantic wedding. With pastel blue and yellow hues and sorority sisters in tow, this FAMU couple shows how big a Black college love can grow. 

Bride Name:

Christina Smith

Groom Name: 

Rashan Noble

Wedding Location:

Roswell, Georgia

Wedding Date: 

Sept 12, 2015

Alma Mater of Bride:

Florida A&M University

Alma Mater of Groom:

Florida A&M University

Current City where you Live:

Atlanta, Georgia

Hometown:

Atlanta, Georgia

How did you meet?

I worked in the FAMU bookstore in 2007 as a cashier and Rashan would come in quite often to get a soda and honey bun, snack of champ, before heading to SBI. We had a brief conversation and wound up (coincidently) having a class together during our last semester.

How long did you date?

5 and a half years before we got engaged

How did he propose?

He came over to my parents’ house to give my mother a Mom’s Day gift, which was not out of the norm. After that he invited me to dance with him to our song: Love Over Me by Monica. In the middle of singing to me, he got down on one knee and told me how he couldn’t see his life without me. Of course I said yes and almost knocked him over as I jumped on him with hugs and kisses.

When did you know he was the one?

I knew he was special after dating for about two months; I knew he was the one within six or so.

What is the cutest thing he has done for you without you asking?

I was in Atlanta, and he knew I had had a horrible week. While we were on the phone, I heard a knock at the door and ignored it (for safety purposes). I heard another knock and he told me to get the door. I opened it to find him standing outside with a bundle of gorgeous coral roses. He had driven up from Florida after his shift to cheer me up!

What is something you love about him that has completely changed your life?

I adore his ability to love and to be loved; he never forgets about me and that means the world to me.

What part of wedding planning made you crazy?

The little stuff like the seating chart, buying little goody bags, table numbers, vases, décor, etc…

What part of wedding planning could you not live without?

Making my own bouquet was sentimental and a thoughtful gift to myself.

What was your first thought the day after your engagement?

Well, I had bad pain in my chest so I thought “I hope I’m not having a heart attack.” I went to the fire station and everything as ok… I had pulled a chest muscle.

What was your favorite part about the wedding?

The part after our vows, when we were officially married.

Did you do any DIY? If so, what?

Everything except ceremony stage, uplighting, hair and makeup.

Who were your wedding vendors? 

Invites- Wedding Paper Divas

Flowers- DIY

Catering- DoubleTree Hotel

DJ/Entertainment- DJ EClazz

Dress- Alfred Angelo

Rentals- Men’s Wearhouse

Wedding Planner- DIY

Photographer- Social Shots

Videographer- JWJ Productions

Transportation- DIY

What were your wedding colors?

Light blue, pastel yellow and grey

What was your wedding theme?

Young and growing love

What is your favorite part about being married to each other?

The fact that our bond was selected and solidified by God. We have promised ourselves to each other and are excited about coming home to each other and growing old holding hands.

What did you learn about each other through the wedding planning process?

Rashan: I learned more about Christina’s attention to detail.

Christina: Rashan really showed his ability to negotiate with me and vendors.
