From the beautiful Bride… Greg and I are both from Tampa so the inspiration behind our wedding really stemmed from wanting our guests to experience downtown/historic Tampa. The riverfront and UT were the perfect location to showcase our city. A lot of planning and effort went into the floorplans for the ceremony and reception as well as choosing decor that would make the room feel warm and elegant.

Romantic Wedding at the Oxford Exchange

I have this little place in my brain where I tuck away weddings I want to remember forever. Ones where if I ever had a wedding redo (to the same handsome hubby of course), I would want to steal every.single.detail. Well this beauty from Justin Demutiis Photography just moved to the front spot of that special place. Beautifully planned by Confetti Events + Weddings with florals so pretty I could cry by MMD Events, it goes without saying I’m swooning hard over this soiree. See it all here.

From Amanda with MMD Events…The unique venue set the stage for a lot of different centerpieces. Her style centered on lots of foliage – maiden hair ferns, plumosus, ruscus, eucalyptus, geranium, sage, rosemary, jasmine and thyme. For the color palette we went with soft peaches and blushes with lots of deep color accents. It’s a style we call “dutch master style.” The light tones are made more luscious with the implementation of dark jewel tones. The flowers we used were black and white anemone, white helleborous, Juliette garden roses, baronesse garden roses, white ranunculus, pale pink spray roses, white O’hara garden roses, queen annes lace, pink O’Hara garden roses, burgundy parrot tulips, scabiosa pods, and white scabiosa.

We created 4 types of arrangements…Head table- Elaborate garland heavily filled with garden roses, ranunculus, and anemones. The table was also accented with gold rimmed glasses and gold and silver mercury glass votives. Garden feasting tables – many small unpolished low brass containers filled to bursting with large blooms and trailing greenery. Terrarium Tables – Large glass containers filled with pillar candles, moss and small delicate blooms flanked with trailing greenery and mercury glass candles. Super long feasting tables 30’– we used long mixed foliage garland without flowers and used brass taper candle sticks to elevate dramatic single blooms and accented the whole piece with mercury glass votive candles.
