Chenoweth’s walk down the aisle was completed with a unique Pamella Roland gown featuring a sheer nude and pink overlay with tiny pearl flowers on the bodice. “I didn’t want to wear white,” she explained. “Simple and elegant. I never thought I would get married, so I went non-traditional with the gown.” Afterwards, for the reception, she changed into an equally unconventional pink cocktail dress also designed by Roland with a large bow in the front. The groom, along with his father and father-in-law, wore Michael Strahan™ suits from Men’s Wearhouse for the special event. Officiated by a friend, Chenoweth also revealed that the couple exchanged “a form of traditional vows,” after which she laughed and added, “But I am not saying ‘obey!’”

“When we first met, I knew there was something special. I always go back to that. When you just have that feeling when you first see somebody.”

The couple incorporated their Christian faith into the ceremony music by opting for a rendition of ‘The Prayer,’ performed by Marissa Rosen, Crystal Monee Hall, Nikki Kimbrough, and Melinda Doolittle, arranged and accompanied by Chenoweth’s music director Mary-Mitchell Campbell. The decorations for the nuptials, planned by Crystal Frasier Weddings, were a romantic blend of creamy, peach, and pink hues and also ended up incorporating Calla lilies, garden roses, majolica, spray roses, hydrangea, ranunculus, veronica, mums, and other seasonal flora into the gorgeous space.
