Real Hazen Bride: Makenna Redd


Real Hazen Bride: Makenna Redd

Makenna Kallman and Jordan Redd wed on December 11, 2021 at the SMU Perkins Chapel in Dallas, Texas

In three words, describe your wedding style?

Classic, Elegant, Festive

What provided the most inspiration for your wedding?

The holiday season inspired a lot of our aesthetic. We wanted the decor to feel festive and classic, but also warm and inviting. We played off the twinkly lights and garland with red bows that adorn the Arlington Hall columns every December. We chose white florals with touches of winter berries and greenery, and hung wreathes throughout the ceremony and reception venues. We leaned heavily on the expertise of our amazing planner, Haylie Paige Events, as well as our incredible vendor team.

What aspect of wedding planning was most exciting to you?

I’m a sentimentalist, so incorporating special, personalized touches from our friends and family was the most exciting part of the wedding planning process. A very gifted, artistic friend designed our save the dates with watercolor illustrations of our favorite things as a couple. At the reception, we showcased engagement photos taken by on of my talented bridesmaids. At the rehearsal diner, I wore my mother’s wedding dress, which was embellished with small seed pearls that were sewn on by my grandmother. My custom Hazen & Co. pearl drop earrings matched perfectly!

What made you decide on Hazen for your big day?

The customer service at Hazen is exceptional. The team even allowed me to custom design pearl drop earrings for my wedding weekend. I wore them to the Welcome Party, Bridesmaids Luncheon and Rehearsal Dinner. For my bridesmaids, I chose the Ingrid Earring in Rose Baroque. I own the Ingrid earrings myself, and I wanted to gift a pair that was refined, but also functional for every day beyond the wedding.
