You'll also learn:

Ricardo Tomas holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio in Architectural Design and is a native Texan born in San Antonio and now resides in Dallas.

With his extensive background in design and firsthand knowledge of current colors, fabrics, textiles and fashion, Ricardo is the founder and CEO of his own luxury wedding planning company, Ricardo Tomas Weddings, for the past 15 years.  Ricardo has been featured as The Wedding Architect with The Knot, WeddingWire, Dallas Voice, D Weddings, Love Wins Texas Weddings, Dallas Style and Design and Martha Stewart Weddings.  

Ricardo founded and volunteers on the board of directors for the Society of Wedding Professionals which is a Dallas/Fort Worth based non-profit association of wedding industry professionals supporting professionalism, education and giving back to our community.  Last year The Wedding Wish was created which granted a couple in need, the dream wedding that they could not obtain due to unforeseen and uncontrolled circumstances and it was 100% donated by various vendors within its membership.

Ricardo also volunteers as a local director within the Miss Texas/Miss America system and has produced 8 state titleholders from his franchise.  His voluntary commitment, involvement and dedication in the Miss America system helps young ladies become the best they can be and bring out their best qualities in order to build champions from the inside out.
