Stephanie's mom insisted on having ceremony flowers, even though the bride didn't want them. Stephanie had just one request: "Don't make them look like funeral sprays!" The tall glass bulb vases filled with orchids, hydrangeas and rose paves ended up being her favorite flowers of the day!

Stephanie made the cards the day before the wedding (talk about pressure!) by printing guests' names on paper similar to what was used for the table numbers.

Modern table numbers with a monogram designed by the bride showed guests where to sit. Votives surrounded each table number to make it stand out (and easier to read!).

Votives in varying heights and square arrangements of hydrangeas and other colorful blooms sat on top of a patterned table runner that helped inspire the monogram design.

Stephanie filled 200 cubed vases with baby's breath and tied them in black ribbon for guests to take home. The only problem? Their large size made guests think they were decorations instead of thank-you gifts, so the couple had 100 left over the next day.

Still, he waited more than four years to actually talk to Stephanie; the two were reintroduced through a mutual group of friends. The Bride Stephanie Hain, 27, administrative assistant The Groom Ulises Torres, 28, network analyst The Date September 27 They became close after talking to each other about previous breakups and helping each other get through their latest failed relationships. Then on Thanksgiving in 2005, Ulises finally mustered up the courage to kiss Stephanie, and their friendship turned into a relationship. Less than two years later, Ulises couldn't wait any longer to propose, so he popped the question on his birthday.
