Downtown Tampa Armenian Wedding {Sasha and Jeff Married}

Sasha was the most beautiful bride and the details in her wedding reflected that beauty. No detail was overlooked and everything was gorgeous, starting with her exquisite dress and shoes. So classic!

The ceremony was at the gorgeous St Hagop Armenian Church in St. Petersburg. The stunning stained glass made the whole venue and the bride and groom sparkle as they should on their wedding day.

When Sasha told me the reception was in her Aunt's backyard, I thought "oh that will be nice" but I was in no way prepared for this gorgeousness! It was an attraction I would pay admission to see! So Amazing!
