Styled Shoot: Ivy Astoria (Ybor)

October 7, 2016


Dear Royal Followers,

 Remember that moment you first laid your eyes on that “thing” that made your eyes just widen to its fullest capacity; the “thing” that made you smile from ear to ear with the cheesiest smile like a child ……whatever that “thing” may be to you, that “thing” to us, was that moment we first were introduced to Ivy!!!

Ivy Astoria located in Ybor off of 7th avenue (former location of Club Fuel) is now open to the public for special event and wedding rentals. She is the newest, hottest, venue in town offering over 15,000 sq. ft. of space allowing for complete transition and flow especially for weddings. We were able to witness how much she’s evolved from day one and friends, she’s a beauty! One of our amazing “friendors” Jennifer S. co-owner alongside her husband Anthony S. (aka Mr. Stone Chef) extended the warm invitation to participate in a styled shoot for the debut of Ivy. We jumped on the opportunity!

What was the inspiration behind the exterior garden-esque look?

In our many inspiration sessions with Jennifer, we expressed the need to showcase the outdoor garden area. Jennifer and Liz (of Liz Kimali Events) began to work diligently and came up with the overall concept. We immediately wanted to create a floral/greenery table runner to cascade down the table. We also wanted to provide that garden like feel so we brought in lots of deflexus (i.e. greenery) and incorporated that into the entire look: the cake table, cocktail tables, etc.


What was our favorite shot of the whole photoshoot?

It was a combination of this look and this look. The interior shots allowed us to showcase Ivy’s beauty. The wood floors, the beautiful gorgeous chandeliers, & the beams in the ceiling.

We also loved creating the models bouquets and flower crowns. This complimented the bridal gowns provided by The Bride Tampa quite nicely.

  2. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!

  3. Hiya! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
