The beginnings of this shoot came about when our friends Taylor and David contacted us with exciting news. They were starting an event rental company following an incredibly enthusiastic response to their wedding furniture, which David had handcrafted in his backyard workshop. After some deliberation, they came up with the name, Timeless Design.
Below, right, Timeless Designs also brought one of their shiplap bars, seen under Fancy Free’s circular garden arch.
Erwin and Alondra’s wedding was one for the books! Taking place just a few days before Christmas, both their traditional Catholic ceremony at Nativity Catholic church in Brandon and their reception at Oxford Exchange were filled with Christmas spirit and decor. It was an all day affair with minimalist greenery and timeless details. Erwin and Alondra were the life of the party, salsa dancing and champagne toasting the night away. A pleasure to get to shoot at such a well known Tampa venue, we’ll remember photographing this Oxford Exchange Christmas Wedding for years to come.
Nativity Catholic Church was a stunning place to get married in December. The church was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the red poinsettias looked magical against the bride’s white dress.
The upstairs rooms at Oxford Exchange were the perfect place to get ready for the reception and pop champagne. Photogenic brick walls and vintage furniture made it a great place to take photos too.
You can’t have a wedding at Oxford Exchange without taking photos on the beautiful staircase! We love how elegant the bride and groom look here.
The lights dimmed and the restaurant was turned into a dance floor. The guests were eager to kick off their shoes and dance the night away. We love a crowd that knows how to party!
Oxford Exchange was decorated with a mix of classic and contemporary. White and green florals with a hint of pink shone out amongst the Christmas decorations.
