oxford exchange wedding: amy + brian

The guitar chords began to echo through the room and everyone in attendance rose to their feet. It was then that a woman with the fullest of hearts walked into to the room on the arm of the first man she’d ever loved, and towards the one who she’d promise her life to that day. The man who would be her forever. It was a short walk, that had been quite a long time in the making. And in the instant that each of their eyes locked on the other, they filled with tears and happiness and relief that the moment had finally arrived. But most of all, they simply filled with, and spoke of, love. Just like the vows they would make to each other that day . . . . .

Amy and Brian are married! They had a stunningly detailed wedding day at one of our favorite spots out there (the always impeccable Oxford Exchange!) The two of them chose a color palette that perfectly accented the decor of their already gorgeous venue. Additionally, they included so many unique details that made the day their own. From their foil accented invitation suite to the wooden script place cards to the his-and-hers dessert bar there wasn’t an aspect of the day that wasn’t beautifully crafted. And it was all accented by the most adorable of couples. Amy looked stunning in her fitted gown, and absolutely glowed on Brian’s ever so dapper arm. And they were backed up by one super sweet (and so very well-dressed!) bridal party.

We adored how they set-up their ceremony in the Shaw Library, but had a tough time keeping our eyes dry when Brian finally got to see Amy walk down the aisle. It was such a sweet moment, followed by even sweeter vows to one another. And we felt so very lucky to witness it. Because as much as we loved every detail of this day, we loved the FEELING of it even more. 

Amy and Brian, thank you so much not only for inviting us to document your big day at Oxford Exchange but for making us feel like such an important part of it. We loved every minute we got to spend with you both and are so excited for everything this new adventure will hold for you guys!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
