cuban club wedding: abigail & matt

She took her father’s arm and began the long walk through the center of the church. All eyes were on her, and with each step she took the smile waiting for her at the end of the aisle grew wider, as he waited anxiously to take her hand for the first time that day. Waiting to make a promise that he would hold it forever . . . . . . .

Abigail and Matt are married! They had a gorgeous wedding day at Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the Cuban Club in Ybor. Abigail wore the most stunning Martina Liana strapless gown, which she topped with a beautiful lace halter overlay for the ceremony. And afterwards, when it was time to get the celebration started, she took it off and donned the most stunning necklace we have ever seen. Like EVER. We’re pretty sure it gives the one from Titanic a run for it’s money! The color palette of the day was kept clean and simple, with all the men sporting classic tuxes and the bridesmaids rocking long black gowns with pearl-accented necklines. So much perfection!

Botanica absolutely killed this wedding day with the most stunning bouquets (F’REAL) and reception decor that literally brought tears to people’s eyes as they walked in the room. There were protea EVERYWHERE (most of which were the biggest we have ever seen) and the most romantic flower-filled gate that guests entered through. It honestly felt like something out of the most epic of fairytales. After a delish dinner by the always fabulous Puff ‘n Stuff, glow sticks were handed out and these two had one seriously awesome party, that truly was the perfect celebration of them.

Abby + Matt, thank you for such an incredibly fun day and for inviting us to be a part of it! We loved every minute with you both and couldn’t be happier for you guys!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
