Stella Campanelli - Owner / Creative Director

About Stella


A wedding with a bridal party of 36, yup, that's over the top. But so is Stella. "For The Modern Bride" was created just for that. For the modern bride. When planning her wedding in 2004-2005, Stella Campanelli (Owner/Creative Director of FTMB), could not find the unique and modern elements that she was looking for. One of which was the card box. To each their own, but having a bird cage, mailbox, treasure chest and wishing well was not an option for her. Not only because is it old fashioned but also because none of those options keep cards safe. Unfortunately theft is a largely growing problem at weddings, even more so now than it was 5 years ago, so she knew that security of their cards were of the utmost importance. With security in mind, Stella wanted a card box that also went with the decor of their wedding. Now mind you, she will be the FIRST to tell you that their card box was hideous, but all innovations have to start somewhere! Over the years, Stella has been delicately balancing the growth of her company with the growth of her family. Five years in, and not only has the company evolved and expanded but there is an almost 4-year old heiress waiting to take over the reigns (so Stella hopes!) and who knows what other chit-lins are still to come. Behind the scenes of FTMB is also now her husband Chris, who in addition to running his own company Bus 2 Design, aids in the website development and marketing of FTMB. A role he does not take lightly. The staff of FTMB also continues to grow which, to Stella, is one of the most exciting parts of running this company. What's so great is that the FTMB Sales Rep team is comprised of mainly past clients who just love what FTMB does and did for their own event, that they've reached out to be a part of it all and now work for the company.

The turn of 2011 has brought on many great opportunities for "For The Modern Bride" and with that Stella has decided to further expand the FTMB Studio. In conjunction with a larger workshop will be a showroom that displays all of FTMB's products and services and consultation offices for our local clientele. It's all in the works, stay tuned for Stella's big reveal and possible job opportunities.
