Bella Bride: Stephanie Velasquez and Andrew Szatan

Whew! How is it already almost 2011? Where has the year gone?! We've had a great year at Bella Flora and are looking forward to 2011 with our new brides =) But first, let's take a look back at this beautiful bride who celebrated her October 30, 2010 wedding in style. Stephanie and Andrew met seven years ago on Halloween and wanted to celebrate during their favorite time of year. This fun and positive group was so great to work with, and we are so excited to share their beautiful day with you!

Stephanie and Andrew exchanged I Do's at the Dallas Museum of Art in the beautiful sculpture gardens in front of the gorgeous water fall. The rich jewel tones were perfect for the evening ceremony.

The altar area was adorned with a beautiful and modern backdrop composed of a grand collection of vessels placed on top the clear Lucite table. Submerged floral and candlelight added an extra element of interest.


Love this mix of lush floral and modern design.


The aisle chairs were embellished with simple and stylish purple/violet hydrangea and ribbon streamers that flowed gracefully down the chair.

Stephanie's exquisite bouquet was designed using a glorious blending of deep plum, violet and Vanda-toned floral fashioned into a perfect pave bouquet. The design incorporated a blending of interesting textures
including lavender hydrangea, fragrant freesia, two toned calla lilies, Vanda orchids and grape muscari.

The stunning bouquet was accented with a crystal broach.

The bridesmaids were given gorgeous bouquets designed in floral in tones of deep violets, amethyst, raspberry, silver greys and vibrant splashed of fuchsia toned blossoms. The color palette accented their dresses beautifully!

What a handsome group of guys!

Andrew's bout. was designed with a unique Picasso mini calla that coordinated with Stephanie's colorful bouquet.

After the ceremony, guests headed to the reception in the Atrium which was transformed with fantastic lighting, exquisite linens and fabulous floral. I love how this picture captures the full "sha-bang" of Stephanie's vision.

What great detailing on the wall!

Select tables were adorned with a trio of tall glass flauta vases that were filled with fluttery blossoms of violet and lavender lush hydrangeas. The gorgeous and natural tone was complemented with  an array of lower lying mercury glass vessels that displayed soft textured mounds of all sweet stock, pretty garden roses, and calypso orchids.

Another selection of round tables were accented with a collection of glass vessels that were filled with fresh water and stunning lavender Dutch hydrangeas, phalaenopsis, and calypso orchids flowing over in a mass setting.


The masks were a huge hit!

These next few shots are great. Their exuberant energy is practically oozing off the page!

Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Szatan!
