We are so excited to share our Ybor City 'industrial- chic meets craft brew' styled shoot! The Ybor City State Museum was the perfect location with its white brick and cobblestones. This city landmark has been preserved from times when people would meet and play dominoes and it perfectly embodied the craft brew concept (Ybor is also known for having a big craft brew presence). Our theme also gives a nod to the growing trends for the younger brides and grooms who have an alternative style.
Our lovely bride, JoHannah, was the perfect fit for this alternative-glam theme. She is elegant with an edge (don’t you just love the tattoos and BLUE hair!?). She was a natural! Her real life beau, Terence, was also a rockstar that day! Don’t let this tough guy fool you, he is one big teddy bear! JoHannah wore a rock ‘n’ roll /Bettie Paige inspired wedding gown. It featured a corset top and exposed boning- very vintage pin-up style! We adored Terence’s indie-hipsteresque look! He donned a carved wood bowtie, suspenders, and of course some awesome tats!
For decor, we incorporated lots of metallics: aluminum, copper, and bronze. Industrial details like metal orbs in centerpiece; wood and galvanized chargers were also used. Our tablescape featured various vintage wooden chairs, a crushed metallic linen, stacked chargers made of wood and galvanized chargers, topped with bisque china and hem stitched napkins. Each table setting was accented with vintage mis-matched gold flat wear and fig colored glass wear. The menu display was a painted binder clip, secured to a metal roofing shingle. The table number was suspended above with the light instillation of Edison bulbs and metal baskets.
Our craft brew table boasted growlers with slate tags indicating each different style of brew, plus a tasting for bride and groom to sample. The “BREW” letters signage was made with bottle caps. All items were set on a pallet table and a display of pint glasses and vintage amber beer bottles and flowers were used as accents.
The cake display was achieved with the use of filing drawers accented with flora. The metal tubing cake stand resembles a keg.
The bride’s bouquet was aimed for the more alternative style – roses, ferns, orchids, ranunculus, and brewers wheat gave life and vibrant color to the shoot.
The overall vibe of the shoot was unique, colorful, and perfect for couples looking for something outside-the-box!
