Jessica Blanco and Michael Norris  |  April 23  |  Tampa  |  Photography by Andi Diamond Photography


The perfect wedding day began with nuptials at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in historic Ybor City and commenced with a celebration at The Epicurean Hotel in South Tampa.

The ceremony for Jessica and Michael featured the bride wearing a beautiful gown covered in lace with long sleeves and a flowing veil, while the groom wore a custom blue tuxedo with a black bowtie. The beautiful stained glass windows at the church in Ybor City created a magical light for the ceremony.

The reception was held outside under a tent on the terrace of the Epicurean Hotel. The tent was decorated with string lights and beautiful florals of whites and soft pinks. The head table featured a long wooden table decorated with stunning florals, candlelight and greenery. The bride changed gowns from her beautiful lace and sleeved gown, to a sleeveless and glittered halter topped dress for the reception. The three-tier cake was simple and elegant topped with a floral design.
