Super Romantic Bridal Shoot From Meant To Be Films

Video: Meant To Be Films

Edgy, textured florals and seductive candle arrangements are the backdrop for this very romantic bridal shoot, conceived and filmed by hot Houston wedding videographer Meant To Be Films.

For its beautiful “Modern Amour” styled wedding shoot, Meant To Be Films partnered with haute Houston bridal salon Belle Ame Bridal, bridal hair and makeup artist Kiss And Makeup Houston, and super-talented Houston wedding photographer Stephania Campos. The result is an ultra romantic scene with tons of elegant wedding inspiration. We love the delicate balance of “sexy and sublime” in this dreamy, feminine bridal shoot. It is this balance that is at the heart of Meant To Be Films’ wedding videography expertise, and why we’re so thrilled to partner with this fabulous Houston husband-and-wife creative team! Scroll down for a selection of images from “Modern Amour” by Stephania Campos Photography. And find the awesome Houston wedding vendors and artists mentioned here at Weddings in Houston!
