Nadia and Shay - A Rustic Chic Wedding at the Historic Tampa Armature Building

Nadia and Shay's wedding was the very first at Tampa's newest (and hottest) venue, Armature Works.  The couple envisioned rustic glamour on Tampa's Hillsborough River with lush greenery, good food, and plenty of dancing for their big day!  They fell in love with the charm of the brick walls, exposed industrial ceiling, and view of the city skyline.  But with a couple this gorgeous, who’s looking at the buildings, anyway?!
