It was a colorful evening in Dallas on May 6th! Emily and Brendan became husband and wife at the Church of the Incarnation. Emily describes the theme of her wedding as “a formal garden party. I love getting dressed up, and I wanted it to feel like spring/summer.” Emily and Brendan brought the outdoors to the Belo Mansion with their incredible display of flowers. “My favorite time of day is golden hours, so I wanted the florals to help the room feel warm and bright. I wanted lots of loose and fun florals to make it feel like they all came fresh from a garden.” The theme of sunset and golden hour inspired Emily’s color palette. “Our amazing wedding planner, Chloe Allday, put together the most beautiful design board with yellows, oranges, and light pinks with pops of cornflower and hot pink. Green is my favorite color, so of course we had to include lots of greenery in the details as well. I loved dreaming up the garden party details.”
Emily’s bridesmaids drew from the color palette for their dress choices. “I had seen the trend during Covid of letting the bridesmaids pick their own, or having different patterned dresses and I thought that was the coolest idea ever. I love that my bridesmaids got to pick a dress that they loved, that they could wear again because it wasn’t a traditional bridesmaid dress.I told them that the theme was formal garden party, and I wanted them to stay within the yellow, pink, orange color family and let them run with it. I think they all did an amazing job picking unique dresses that fit their personalities and they looked gorgeous standing by my side.”
One special element to the decor at the Belo Mansion was the suspended element above the dance floor. Emily knew she wanted to have flowers above the dance floor, but did not want to have the traditional halo of flowers. “Since all the tables were going to be a mix of loose arrangements and individual bud vases with colored taper candles, I thought it would be fun to tie that into the hanging arrangements with colorful ribbons. I had seen on Instagram, some individual buds hanging on a string and loved them so much that I knew I wanted that to be a part of my wedding day. Wedfully Yours understood the assignment and I could not be happier with how the hanging florals and ribbons turned out.” The tablescape details also inspired the design of the cake. Emily knew she wanted a white tiered cake with real flowers, so she chose colorful flowers that trailed each tier.
The Keegans’ reception was filled with love, laughter and close family and friends. Congratulations Emily and Brendan!
