A Spring Wedding in Tampa, Florida | Ali and Jake

Ali and Jake’s wedding day at Oxford Exchange was nothing short of beautiful. From the stunning spring color palette to Ali’s love for pink, every detail was thoughtfully planned and executed to perfection.

When you have a bride who loves pink!

The day started with Ali and her bridesmaids getting ready at Le Meridien. Ali’s favorite color is pink, which was reflected in her nails, bridal shoes, and pajamas. She wore a beautiful pink pajama set with pink tulle, which complemented her soft pink manicure. Her bridal shoes were a gorgeous bright pink hue with sparkling embellishments by Jimmy Choo, adding a touch of glamour to her bridal look.

As Ali and her bridesmaids sipped champagne and got pampered by the Oxford Exchange team, excitement and anticipation filled the air. Meanwhile, Jake and his groomsmen were also getting ready, putting on their sharp suits and bow ties.

A romantic ceremony for two, please

The ceremony was in the conservatory of Oxford Exchange, surrounded by lush greenery and candlelight, making the atmosphere romantic and dreamy. Ali looked breathtaking as she walked down the iconic staircase in her stunning gown, which featured a delicate train and delicate lace. Jake shed tears of happiness (as every bride hopes for), and the two of them exchanged vows in front of their closest friends and family.

After the ceremony, the incredible staff of Oxford Exchange quickly flipped the conservatory space into the reception. The space was filled with spring florals and glowing candles. The evening was filled with laughter, love, and celebration as Ali and Jake danced the night away with their loved ones. From the heartfelt speeches to the delicious food and drinks, everything was perfect and memorable!

Ali and Jake’s wedding day at Oxford Exchange was a true reflection of their love and style, and it will remain a cherished memory for them and their guests for years to come.
