This styled shoot was the epitome of Gilded Glam, featuring mixed shades of metallics and plenty of elegant, high-end design. The Museum of Fine Arts was the perfect backdrop for all the details fashioned for a lux-loving bride.
Brian and Amanda share Tampa roots (they went to the same PreK class and grew up only a quarter mile down the street from each other) so they knew they wanted to get married in the city they grew up in and loved. They began planning their nuptials for their 300 closest friends and family in historic Ybor City, known for the area's former life as a cigar capital of the US. The bride wanted to make sure the wedding was above all else FUN, and she didn't want anything too theme-y, but rather wanted classic elements and to embrace the feel of the city.
Katie and Mike put together a perfect winter wedding with a non-traditional winter color palette of Emerald Green, Blush Pink, and Pewter (which we loved)! Katie's gorgeous gown received A LOT of special attention that day; she had a final reveal with her dad, bridesmaids, and the groom, in three different and intimate first looks (And how beautiful was Katie's fur stole?). Does anyone else just melt when they see tears welling up in a father's eyes? And we love how the bridesmaids were all cheering with excitement!
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.
