Italian and Chilean Heritage Wedding | The Italian Club | Tampa Florida


When we first heard Pedro and France’s love story, we immediately fell in love with the serendipity and romance of how they met and fell in love. An Italian-American teacher working abroad in Chile, only to find the love of her life- who she would come to one day marry. So as their big day arrived, we knew that we truly could not wait for their legacy of love to unfold amongst some of the most beautiful, thought out details honoring the legacy’s that they too came from.

The heritage that made their love story the tale that it is.

A heritage that molded the love stories preceding Frances and Pedro, and that will continue to carry on for decades to come. Honored through flags waving outside of The Italian Club. Through dry shelled peanuts as a nod to the old Italian tradition. Through cufflinks adorned with stones that can only be found in Chile. Through floral centerpieces with touches of fruit throughout- just as if the reception were occurring in old Italy, and wine imported personally from Argentina.

A wedding filled to the brim with tradition and heritage.

Because the truth is… nothing would suit a #cooneycouple more than honoring their family and tradition. The family who loved and raised them into the incredible human beings that they are now. Because Frances and Pedro?

They have some of the kindest, most loving hearts that we have ever seen.

Frances and Pedro- the love that you two share is as if it were from an old, loosely bound story book. A story that has been read and re-read over time, because it is so amazing. A love that not only lasts the test of time, but a love that inspires other loves to achieve equal greatness. A love that is so patient and remarkable, that all of the loved ones in the framed photographs on your wedding day would be so proud of. A love that honors, respects, appreciates, and lives in the moment. A love, that we are so thankful to know. A love that we love so so much and cannot wait to continue to watch grow.

Hugs and lots of love,

Shauna and Jordon
