A beautiful and creative way to showcase your personal style on your wedding day can be done through rentals. These rentals can range from chargers and china to luxury seating. These unique pieces and settings allow you to thread your style and design and pull it through each element of your wedding day décor. Our latest vendor spotlight features Bella Acento, a full-service event décor and design studio. Here is what fearless leader Leslie Cole had to say about weddings and event design!

When and how did you get into the wedding industry? 

Right out of college, I moved to Dallas and began working for a catering company, Daryl’s By Design, and worked out of the Dallas World Aquarium. After a year of working events and weddings on the catering side, I went to work for Cannon Ball/Ducky-Bob’s Party Rentals. As Executive Director of Bella Acento I have a combined 22 years of experience in the wedding industry.

Where are you based and where do you meet with clients? 

We are based in Dallas, Texas. I mainly meet with clients in our showroom in the Design District, as this is where we showcase all of our products.

What makes you different at what you do?

My experience and eye for design. For those who don’t come with a concrete vision, I can help them create a beautiful setting for their event/wedding.  I like working with people who are direct and know what they want, but are open to new suggestions and ideas.

Why do you think your clients hire you or what are some of the best compliments you’ve received from your clients? 

A lot of my clients I have worked with for many years, they trust me and know I will go above and beyond to make their event special.

Tell us about one of your favorite uses of color in a wedding. We recently did a wedding on the roof top of the Wyly Theatre. The bride chose to use a mix of both our black and white washed cross back chairs, it looked beautiful with her pops of bright fuchsia floral. It was a fabulous combination!


Quite a bit of Bella Acento’s inventory can be seen in their catalogue online.  If you need help with the decor design and vision for your wedding, reach out to Leslie directly at or 972-982-2821!
