Once upon a time….

We were at Toni and Gabriel’s place.

There’s a dress form that stands in the corner. Toni stays focused with her sewing machine with pieces of fabric and patterns lying around.  She stayed up all night getting the final few stitches.

Making of a wedding gown is complicated, especially if it’s for your own wedding. It’s not like you went to a store, tried it on and loved it.  Nope it’s a dress that you dreamed of in your heart and is well thought off.

After hearing her story we were compelled to capture few of these moments and sew them to their wedding day video.

It was around Christmas time I met them. Their engagement photo session included moments at their favorite restaurant Anise global gastrobar in Tampa.


The wedding took place at Tampa Women’s Club located across the sidewalk of Bayshore boulevard.

Here’s their story in stills and in motion.
