This past weekend we had the pleasure of planning Jenny and Josh’s wedding. They have a great story!
The couple met in middle school and were high school sweethearts. I actually went to high school with both Jenny and Josh!
After high school they went off to college and went their separate ways. More than ten years later, they found each other again. They were living on opposite coasts, but not even that could keep them away from each other!
Jenny and Josh married at the historic Don Vincente Inn in Ybor City. They had a unique theme to their wedding, and it suited them perfectly. They decided to have a cocktail type reception, actually an all dessert reception. Guests mixed, mingled and danced throughout the night. The centerpieces were really cute, they were black magic roses filled inside different size cigar boxes. The theme of the wedding and reception was vintage and we played off things that symbolized Ybor City.
Jenny actually wore her mother’s wedding gown. She had it re-designed and she looked absolutely beautiful in it.
Their guest book was a coffee table book about the history of Ybor City. Guests signed around the pictures and words. Many gave advice, shared a story, or memory they have with the couple.
Her favors were chocolate cigars to go along with the theme, which was of course, dessert and historic Ybor. Guests also received a mixed CD of the couple’s favorite songs, and actual cigars!
After the reception, everyone was invited downstairs into the basement at the Don Vincente Inn for an after party where pizza and even more drinks were served!
Congrats once again to the lovely couple!
P.S. As we receive photos from the photographer we will be sure to post them. 🙂
