Stephen and Dede’s colorful fiesta wedding was the sizzling summer celebration we’ve all been waiting for! This cute couple tied the knot at Saint Monica’s Catholic Church followed by a fantastic Tex Mex themed reception. Bright colors had guest in a party mood as soon as they walked in and complimented the couple’s fun loving personality to a tee. To fit the fun fiesta theme dinner obviously had to be the couple’s favorite – Mexican food! Following the upscale fiesta dinner, guest danced the night away to The Motion Band. It’s official, Dede had the most epic bouquet toss of all time; “Move Bitch” got all the single ladies on their feet, ready to go! This vibrant party definitely has us wishing for a never ending summer!
How they met
Dede was having a fun night out with her brother and friends to watch the Final Four when Stephen walked into her life. Stephen was hanging out with some of Dede’s brother’s high school friends when the two groups ran into each other! Eventually, the two groups split off to different bars for the night and Stephen was ready to head home until his friends started convincing him to stay. Stephen’s one request for him to stay? Have his friends find “that Dede girl” and so they did! For the rest of the evening, the couple hung out at the Ginger Man and played darts before Stephen got her number.
how he proposed
Call it a woman’s intuition but Dede totally knew what Stephen was planning when he said he wanted to go on a “fancy date”. Stephen picked Dede up at home and when they walked outside surprised her with a notebook the two had been writing notes in for the last year. On the last page he had wrote everything he wanted to say and began reading it to Dede while getting on one knee and proposing! The couple celebrated their “fancy date” with a surprise chauffeured trip to Reunion Tower for dinner. Following dinner, Stephen planned a huge surprise party with all their friends and family including Dede’s best friend from college who he flew out just for the night!
