wedding at oxford exchange: jenn + peco

They have traveled all over the world. They’ve traversed new cities and explored different continents, and have already made more memories of their adventures together than some people will ever see in a lifetime. And if you know them, you know that there will be so many more to come. But this afternoon, standing in a room filled with familiar faces, they began a different kind of adventure. And while they didn’t know what the itinerary would be or where it would take them, they knew without a doubt that this would be the greatest one yet . . . . . .

Jenn and Peco are husband and wife! The two of them traveled down from NYC to celebrate with an unforgettable Oxford Exchange wedding day. From the weather to the light to the sweet spirit of everyone involved, nothing about this day could have been any better.

Jenn flew to Tampa with her Kleinfeld wedding gown, and when you see just how stunning it is you will know why it was worthy of it’s own seat on the plane ; ) And speaking of stunning, we just couldn’t get over how perfectly it fit her or how amazing she looked standing at Peco’s side. (We are preeeettty sure we must have used the word “princess” like 9375329038 times, but it was the TRUTH!) After a private first look, the soon-to-be newlyweds joined their bridal party for some pictures in Plant Park. The hour spent in that gorgeous golden light zipped by so quickly we couldn’t believe when it was time to head to their ceremony.

The reception was themed around travel, with guests coming downstairs to find their tables named after places the bride and groom love. And five laughter-filled, heartfelt speeches and some yummy dinner stations later, everyone was invited out onto the dance floor for the Hora. It kicked off one seriously epic dance party that continued for the rest of the night.

Hands on Sweets put together the most beautiful dessert bar, that also just happened to be delicious to boot. It didn’t take long after Peco and Jenn cut their cake for everyone to hop in and start snacking. As guests left, they were greeted with one more final surprise, a display of Happy Meals that provided the perfect post-cocktail snack for the ride home. We had never seen anything like this but are basically convinced it is officially the best idea EVER.

Jenn and Peco, thank you for entrusting us with your love story. We loved documenting every bit of your Oxford exchange wedding day and we hope to see you guys in NY soon!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
