Today’s couple Viviana and Dustin describe their wedding style as “Texican,” the perfect fusion of their backgrounds. The two exchanged vows in Dallas with the talented Amber Vickery and Dirt Flowers on hand, but filled the day with nods to Viviana’s Mexican heritage and oodles of bright color and fun floral arrangements. We particularly love the use of floor tiles as table number displays!
From the bride, Viviana: From start to finish, the one word we found ourselves calling the style of our wedding was “Texican”. We came across this word because we are very proud of my Mexican heritage and Dustin’s Texan background. So it was only natural to incorporate these things into our big day. A few things we knew we wanted was to have it outdoors, despite the Texas heat, with fabulous brunch style food. We threw in specialty popsicles for dessert because what’s better than popsicles in the middle of summer?
The way we would describe our wedding would be vibrant, colorful, relaxed, and personal. Our color scheme was quite unlimited being that Mexican blankets were the inspiration and used throughout the ceremony and reception. The biggest DIY of the wedding would be my wedding dress. It was a custom designed gown by Lucy Dang Dallas with an embroidered hem that I made by hand. From having a close friend design my wedding dress to Dustin’s dad officiating the ceremony, we wanted to include our family and friends in our celebrations as much as possible. My dad even made a giant jenga set as well as a beautiful prayer bench that we took communion on during the ceremony.
I was so excited about the flowers for the wedding and our florist Sonya from Dirt is absolutely amazing! She knew exactly what I was looking for right from the beginning. I trusted her completely and the end result was stunning! The only flower I requested were peonies which are my favorite flower and they were used beautifully throughout the bouquets and centerpieces.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? It may be cliché but don’t stress yourself out too much during the planning. When the day comes, those small details are the farthest thing from your mind so just enjoy each other… and the food!

From the photographer, Amber Vickery: Viviana and Dustin’s wedding was a perfect fusion of their heritages, he’s from the South and her family is from Mexico. She’s vibrant and a talented fiber artist and he’s a photographer and a little bit quieter. Their wedding was full of lovely, colorful details, I mean, those hot pink heels from Sarah Jessica Parker? And her dress made by Lucy Dang and the bride actually embroidered herself? The details really blew me away. It was incredible.
