Stacy and Josh - A Chic Ybor City Wedding

Stacy and Josh are each a part of long time Florida families, so a Florida inspired Ybor wedding only made sense for them. Florida elements, like fiddler crab claws and oyster shells, were interspersed with personal touches found everywhere from the bride wearing her mothers veil, to old family wedding photos set amongst displays of sweets. For a final show of appreciation to old Tampa, a dominos table was set up in The Italian Club, as a nod to the venue's history and the spirit of Tampa.

                 The couple looked elated post ceremony, as they posed in the heart of Ybor.
