Colorful Spanish Wedding at McNay Art Museum

We are so excited to share this beautiful celebration infused with bold color, southwest flavor, unexpected texture, and stunning floral!  This fabulous, fun, and quirky couple chose the historic McNay Art Museum as the setting for their nuptials and took the inspiration of the Spanish architecture, hand-painted tiles, and gorgeous gardens to heart.  From succulents and air plants to peonies and roses –  this wedding decor is a textured dream filled with unexpected details like the black and white patterned table runners and little terrariums filled with cactus.  This bride’s style stays sophisticated with a strong sense of color throughout the details in navy, green, and yellow with bright pops of pink to accent.  And check out her best girl’s (she refreshingly opted out of bridesmaids) dresses perfectly suited to the color scheme.

After a beautiful ceremony, guests were escorted on a private tour of the museum’s exquisite art collection featuring original works by Monet, Degas, Picasso and many more notable artists. After the tour, guests enjoyed dinner under the stars in the McNay’s romantic courtyard, followed by dancing indoors under strings of light.
