Alyssa and Toby had their wedding at The Vinoy in downtown St. Pete on the most beautiful, Florida day! Alyssa and Toby live in Tampa and visit St Pete often. And because they love the vibe of St Pete so much, they chose this area to share in the atmosphere St. Pete offers all while providing them with a great vacation and experience.
Alyssa and Toby both moved to Tampa from small beach towns to go to the University of Tampa. However, they didn’t meet one another until after college and didn’t start dating until a few years after that. Call it fate or good timing, I love that these two had to travel south before they ever met each other.
The Vinoy became their top choice for their wedding because it not only provided an Old Florida charm but it has a fantastic view of the water and city skyline. Being a creative herself, Alyssa wanted to ensure all the details of the day encapsulated who they were as individuals and who they are as a couple. Alyssa hand made all of the name cards out of oyster shells that they have either eaten or found on the beach in Toby’s hometown in Connecticut. To top it off, they even had an oyster bar for their guests!
It was a one of a kind, sweet, romantic, Florida wedding and I couldn’t be more excited for Alyssa and Toby’s (and their pup Ellie!) future together!
