UNIQUE Wedding: Sabrina & Rustie

We were so excited to work with Sabrina and Rustie! Their style of vintage elegance with a feminine flair was so much fun! Between the red ruffle heels and the feather accents, this wedding was truly a memorable one! There were so many aspects of this wedding that illustrated the vintage elegance. Sabrina's gown, with it's elaborate details and lace touches, fit in perfectly with the ornate, historic Don Vicente Inn, located in Ybor City. To retain her unique look, Sabrina accented her gorgeous gown with modern accessories. Sabrina was not about to let her bridesmaids walk down the aisle without their own touch of flair. Each bridesmaid strutted down the aisle in leopard heels! (a first for UED!)

The Ceremony took place in the hotel lobby, with simple decor consisting of two pearl arrangements and an custom aisle runner. As the Cocktail Hour began, the wedding party hit the streets of Ybor City to capture their photos with a historical, urban backdrop. Jason Angelini Photography did such an amazing job with the photos and we were so excited to work with him! While enjoying cocktails, the guests found their names on the damask escort cards hanging from gold trees. As everyone entered the dining room, they stepped back in time. Connie Duglin provided the black pintuck linens, beneath alternating centerpieces of candles and white flowers, courtesy of Forever Flowers. A truly romantic setting was created! Even the menu cards had a touch of elegance, each card was accented with a pearl and sat atop a gold charger. Other decor touches included wine bottles with roses, and candles as far as the eye can see. Instead of a typical wedding cake, this couple chose to instead, have tower of delicious cupcakes from Let Them Eat Cake! Sabrina and Rustie and all of their guests partied all night long, to the sounds of DJ Ben of Grant Hemond & Associates, and everyone even hit the city for an unofficial Afterparty!

Sabrina and Rustie, thank you so much for allowing us to join in on your celebration and happiness! We wish you the best, for a very long and happy life together!
