{Samantha & Ryan @ The Italian Club}

It was SO hard for me to choose which images to post to tell Samantha and Ryan's story because there are just so many things I could say and post:-)  Samantha is not only gorgeously stunning but also so thoughtful.  Her gift to Ryan was a lot of little things she has kept over the years (11 to be exact that they have been together:-) and some fun things for their Italian honeymoon.  Ryan gave Samantha what every girl loves getting, a Tiffany's box with a pearl bracelet that matched her dress perfectly.  The girls got ready in the bridal suite at the Don Vicente.  The style of that inn goes so perfectly with their reception being at the Italian Club.  Samantha's dad had the best reaction when he saw his little girl in her gown:-)  The color palette was lavender, moss green, and champagne complete with guys in bow ties and fun socks.  Ryan's dad was his best man.  I've said it before, but I always love when especially dad's are involved, and you could tell both Ryan and Samantha's parents were so happy for them.  Samantha's cousin Matthew assisted the priest in the ceremony, and since he has known her since she was little, that made it really special.  Along the way we got to stop and some of the best places in Tampa for photos:-)  The Italian Club is 3 levels, cocktail hour on the first floor, a really awesome photo booth on the 2nd floor (that Samantha's dad made!) and reception on the 3rd floor. One of their family traditions is to have a table with all different cookies.  The song she and her dad danced to was one that he actually sang and recorded.  Their guests enjoyed delicious cuisine by Puff n Stuff, a fun party DJ'd by Michael from Grant Hemond, beautiful decor by Botanica, and the day would not have gone off without a hitch without Brooke from r.s.b.p Events.  We loved every minute of it!!!  Congrats Samantha and Ryan!  xoxoxo
