Fancy That

Nov, 07, 2016

December 17, 2015 // Emily + Collin 

Emily Peden and Collin Bearnson’s proposal was out-of-sight. “Collin blindfolded me and took me on a golf cart through the Thanksgiving Point gardens,” Emily says. “We went into the secret garden where Collin had candles and dessert set up. He showed me a video he made for me, and then he got down on one knee and proposed!” Emily replied with an enthusiastic “yes!” and the two Highland-born lovebirds set a date. When it came time to talk details, Emily was downright marry. “Wedding planning was so easy,” Emily says. “I have been planning my wedding since I can remember. I love all-things wedding!” For her photographer, she wanted a detail queen. “McKenzie Deakins was the easiest decision ever,” she says. “She is spunky, sassy and energetic — just like me!” For her decor, she wanted fancy — from A to Z Gallerie. “I am in love with Z Gallerie, so I themed my entire wedding after them. It was elegant, chic and modern.” For her colors, she went with Aubergine, black, gold, green and lavender — with a touch of Christmas. “I added lots of shimmery Christmas pieces and glittery trees, and I had my florist add lots of glimmer.” In the end, all the little details added up to one big dream. “Everything was fabulous from start to finish,” she says. “Collin surprised me by singing ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love With You’ at the reception. It was incredibly sweet and it brought me to tears. What a dream.”

SWEET MEET Emily and Collin were high school classmates, but they didn’t truly connect until much later. “We ran into each other at a mutual friend’s wedding. Collin was actually on a date!” Emily says. “A few days later, he messaged me on Facebook, and within a few weeks, we were dating!” 

GET THE PICTURE Chandeliers, candles, fur coats, heavenly hues. Emily and Collin’s wedding was dripping with drama — in the best sense of the word. “I love anything and everything fancy!” Emily says. And with her December nuptials, she let the marry get merry. Her reception at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building had a backdrop of gorgeous Christmas trees, and she had her florist add touches of holiday glimmer into the bouquets and centerpieces.
