You are the reason we do what we do.

Before we created Invitation Galleria in 2009, we had just moved from Honduras. I had been planning weddings, designing wedding flowers and invitations back home. I was ok with not doing that here in the States (or so I thought).

We look forward to hearing story

Then one day…

I realized I missed weddings soooo much. I found that while there were very cool and cute stores, there were no stationery stores that offered true custom designed wedding invitations in the Tampa Bay area.

I set out to create the most unique & timeless custom wedding invitations for the most elegant and discerning couples. 

It's so exciting! We help you create your very own invitation. We take care of the details so you have more time for fun wedding planning.

Best of all…

when I shared this dream with Jose, my husband, he surprisingly jumped right in!

He helped me back in Honduras, but had his own business. We became a team working in the same industry, weddings, which we both just enjoy so much. 

I really enjoy meeting new couples and getting to know their story. I absolutely love it that I get to help bring wedding invitation visions to life.

It turns out…

we had to tweak a few things. We first opened Invitation Galleria’s doors in a cute area of our shipping store (which we had back then) and soon learned it needed its own space.

We also had to learn etiquette for different cultures, relearn what to say and not to say in an invitation, what materials work best to be mailed and yearly design trends. 

19 years together & through it all…

God has blessed us 2 with joyful kiddos, a beautiful wedding invitation store in South Tampa, amazing clients (that we miss when they get married) and wonderful people yet to meet just like you.
