It’s a Small World, After All
After meeting through an online dating website, Scott and Monica experienced a “small world” feeling when they found out they had a mutual friend.
Scott Joseph Rose and Monica Olivia Moreno met online, the way many couples are winding up together these days. But the twist is, they have a mutual friend in common, which made the couple believe they would have ended up meeting each other eventually.
Monica had always wanted a cold-weathered wedding, and since Scott proposed in July, she had to plan in a mere six-and-a-half months so that a January 23, 2010 wedding was possible. With a lot of help from her own husband, and the services of Danyett Baxter of TwoBeWed the wedding took place at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Midtown at 7:15pm. The catered reception took place at the Latin American themed ARTISTA in The Hobby Center. The venue was a huge hit with guests and was a nod to the bride’s Latin American heritage. And LG Entertainment provided music for the celebration of about 200 guests.
Always craving salty over sweet, Monica chose to have pretzel logs double-dipped in milk and white chocolate, along with traditional wedding cake by World Catering International Café and Bakery.
The couple wanted the wedding to be something remembered, so they chose to leave the reception in a 1937 Rolls Royce with a customized license plate reading “ROSE”, the new couple’s last name. Taking advantage of a winter wedding in Texas, the bride and bridesmaids wore fur wraps to match the fashion with the season. Their wedding gifts were scratch-off tickets enclosed in an envelope that read, “We hit the jackpot, hope you do too!”
The bride is all praises for her makeup and hair artist, Danielle from The Perfect Face. Not to mention her artistic photographer, JP Beato III; he provided an open-concept photo booth which all the guests enjoyed.
Their ten-day honeymoon in Costa Rica was spent zip lining, whale and dolphin watching, and of course spending lazy days relaxing by the infinity pool at their resort, Oxygen Jungle Villas.
The couple’s online introduction that turned into an unbelievable marriage can be summed up by the brides’ words, “Being loved is feeling love, and that is exactly the way I feel everyday. I couldn’t imagine a day without him.”
