Not only does the cream of Stephanie’s dress and David’s suit look perfect for their porch wedding, but it also continues into the reception venue. Vecoma’s classic ballroom allows couples to decorate how they please for their special day. Their stunning three-tiered wedding cake is covered in cream icing with an overlay of swirled piping and flowers. The couple completes their dinner tables with a creative book centerpiece along with individual welcome bags for guests.
During the ceremony, Stephanie and David personalize their day with a lasso ceremony. It is a tradition to symbolize the unity they are creating. It is typically done by a parent or loved one placing rosary beads, or some other “lasso” around the couple. Truly, a beautiful way to demonstrate their devotion to one another. Additionally, during the reception, the guests participate in the “dollar dance”. This is the practice of pinning money on the newlyweds to symbolize the wish for good fortune to fall upon the couple.
From Dance Classes to the Ballroom
Having met in a Salsa class, dance plays a big role in their love story. On their first date David pretends to have car troubles to ride with Stephanie to their dinner with ballroom friends. He then left his dance shoes in her car, in which they have stayed ever since.
Their reception doesn’t lack the dance aspect of their relationship. The instructor of the class they met each other in, choreographs the perfect first dance for the couple. Everyone in attendance dances the rest of the night until sending the couple off in a tunnel of glowsticks, vibrant against the night sky.
