Classic Ybor City Italian Wedding With Sentimental Surprises | Tampa Wedding Photographer
Shannon and Jon planned their day to honor their love and truly celebrate their life together. They hosted the big day at the Italian Club in Ybor City- LOVE this venue!
The day was filled with sweet sentiments and surprises for each other and their guests. Throughout the planning, I would get little notes updating me on the next surprise or gifts sprinkled throughout the day. From the dances to extravagant gifts, to the drumline led confetti exit down 7th avenue and armored truck chrome limo, they sprinkled meaningful tokens of love every step of the day.
Watching their love and laughter was a magical experience for me. They are a joy-filled couple with the biggest hearts I’ve ever encountered! Not only are they filled with BIG love for one another, but they are parents to an adorable son, Bailey, who they cherish and care for in such a beautiful way! He was an integral part of the day and it was so sweet to watch.
During the ceremony, you could scan the room and see the happy tears flowing freely. This family is SO cared for and cherished. They attract lifelong friends because of who they are and how they are together.
The reception was a blast. From the surprise first dance to Michael Jackson, to the Princess Belle appearance (that included a serenade - a total first for me). The day was well worth the wait. (I am only allowed to say that because they have the best sense of humor.) ; )
Together this duo is truly magical- straight from Beauty and Beast (their words, not mine), you can see that symbolized by their cake topper! It was all the special details with a hint ( just a hint) of over the top awesomeness that made this day truly remarkable.
To say photographing Shannon and Jon's wedding was a pure delight would be an understatement. Never have I witnessed a couple with such grace, appreciation, gratitude, humor and undeniable chemistry.
What a gift it is being part of such a great day and developing a friendship as a result. These two are SO great and Shannon and I have become fast friends. We wish Shannon and Jon continued happiness and may you celebrate your love always. We know you will continue to surprise each other and show your unwavering appreciation for your love. And we can't wait to watch it happen!
