Bella Bride: Stephanie & Ulises

These two barely talked during high school, but Ulises finally made his move several years later.. and last September they got married at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. The ceremony was traditional with just a few decorations. Votive candles lit the aisle to the altar, with glass bulb vases filled with orchids, hydrangeas and rose paves on each side.

The bride wanted everything to be personalized...

She gave each bridesmaid a different cross to be wrapped around their bouquet.

Each bridesmaid was allowed to pick out her own long black dress.

Stephanie wanted to put in some personal work herself, so she made the name cards and the party favors. She filled cubed vases with baby's breath, tied with black ribbon and stamped with the couple's monogram. Imagine doing all that the night before your wedding!

The reception took place at the W Dallas-Victory. Lighting was so key to the ballroom - it created such a stunning ambience!

We loved the bride's vision of wanting a modern look, especially with the black and white patterns! The centerpieces were a mixture of votives in varying heights and square vases filled with hydrangeas. The table runner was one of our favorite pieces - it matched the couple's monogram theme so well!

The perfect touch to complete their mod, black and white look? Bride & groom cakes with an edible version of their monogram!
