ELEVATED WEDDING GARDEN GRANDEUR AT THE GERAGHTY

Her expression that day told us before she did. The Geraghty Sales Manager Lauren usually smiles upon arriving at work, but this time, her wide-eyed, elated personality displayed, “It’s MY TURN!” And The Geraghty and Kehoe Designs teams were HERE FOR IT!

When it came to her wedding, she knew her dreams of bringing the outdoors in would come true from the visionaries, Tom Kehoe and Creative Director Bridget Frizzie of Kehoe Designs.

The wedding décor must be an extension of the couple for the ambiance to feel authentic,” asserts Tom. “I’ll look for inspiration in the bride’s laugh, the way she wears her hair, or the looks her and her groom share when they think no one’s watching.”

For Lauren, it was the way she moved lightly throughout a room. It was her timeless elegance and her affinity for tailored, neutral basics. It was the plants that lined her desk and her low, loose bun. Her natural, sophisticated taste spoke to Tom and Bridget.

I wanted to drape the room in nature and greenery to create an intimate setting for our guests,” said Lauren. “It was important for the décor to reflect Patrick and my style.”

Inspired by the couple and “At Nature’s Root”—underbrush, exposed roots, soft petals, and young ferns—Tom and Bridget brought the outside into The Geraghty via a design meant for savoring each moment. Like the boxwood-lined walls surrounding the ceremony that gently vibrated the sound of Lauren’s father’s banjo. And the wrought iron gazebo roof covered in ivy, phalaenopsis orchids, wild smilax vines, and long white wisteria vines insulated the vows the couple wrote together.

Romance was in the air the moment you walked into the room. Tom wanted this wedding reception to be stunning and lush—at the same time well-edited and refined. From the custom canopies filled with trailing ivy to the miles of twinkling strands of lights and soft, velvety drapery—the room came to life before your eyes.

Bridget and the design team set out to find the right combinations of styling elements, including custom finished dining tables, clear Lucite chairs, and Hollywood Regency chandeliers. Manicured boxwoods elevated the design with just enough whimsy to match the bride’s captivating personality.

This room was not just intended to be seen; it was meant to be felt. Incorporating pieces of nostalgia lent Lauren’s old soul to the design. “The element that I felt most embodied Lauren was the old-world, reimagined conservatory gate that greeted guests upon entry,” said Tom. “We covered it in fragrant Stephanotis vines, hedges of Algerian ivy and boxwood orbs in classic urns.”

Those gates transported everyone out of the city and into an enchanted secret garden,” added Tom. “Here, everyone could catch their breath and be present in this magical moment.” It was here that Tom hugged Lauren, presented her bouquet to her, and sent her pounding heart toward “I do.”
