Elegant Tampa Wedding | Oxford Exchange Wedding

While Holly and Jimmy didn’t have a particular theme for their black, ivory and champagne South Tampa wedding, their big day seamlessly blended together with a nod to the couple’s profession.

“It did have a mid-century modern feel with a little veterinary medicine flare,” the bride explained. “I loved the simplicity of the flowers, as well as all the extra touches of the brass animals and the name cards, since we are both veterinarians. My mom and I looked all over Central Florida for them to really bring in the ‘fauna.'”

Creating a warm and inviting atmosphere was important to the Lakeland couple.

“The most important thing about our wedding day was that the guests felt that they were loved and appreciated. I wanted to make sure that they had a ton of fun with the amazing live band, had delicious food and did not need to wait for transportation. Everything I thought of had my guests in mind,” Holly shared.

To add to the guest experience, the South Tampa bride and groom hired a cigar roller from Breezin’ Entertainment.

“The cigar bar was added to our wedding due to Tampa’s heritage of being the ‘Cigar City,’ which I wanted our out-of-town guests to enjoy. I really think the men enjoyed going outside, getting together and celebrating over fresh tobacco,” the bride explained. “Breezin’ Entertainment had a great reputation and overall they did an amazing job.”

To ensure Holly and her bridesmaids looked their best, she hired Tampa wedding hair and makeup artist Michele Renee The Studio.

Michele Renee The Studio had everything I was looking for in a makeup artist. They were fun, easy to talk to, local and did a great job!” the bride gushed.

Looking back, one of Holly’s most cherished moments came during her wedding ceremony.

“The most memorable moment of my wedding day was walking with my dad down the aisle towards my future husband, surrounded by all the people I love most dearly. Life was absolutely perfect in that moment,” the bride reminisced.

The Proposal:
Kidwell and I love the beach and long walks. On an early September morning, we went for a long walk along the coast of Anna Maria Island, where I picked up shells, and he threw rocks. It was a normal day for us on vacation. After the walk, he knelt down and told me he wanted to walk with me every day the rest of his life. We celebrated at Duffy’s soon after over cheeseburgers.

How did the cigar bar add to the atmosphere of your wedding?
The cigar bar was added to our wedding due to Tampa’s heritage of being the “Cigar City,” which I wanted our out-of-town guests to enjoy. I really think the men enjoyed going outside, getting together and celebrating over fresh tobacco. It really seemed to bring people together, which was our goal.

How would you describe your theme?
I did not intend for there to be a theme to our wedding. I just wanted it to be simple, yet elegant. Looking back, I would have to admit that it did have a mid-century modern feel with a little veterinary medicine flare. My mom and I looked all over Central Florida for old brass animals to really bring in the “fauna.”

What were your colors?
Black, ivory and champagne; Jimmy and I are not very artistic at all, and we just wanted very simple and appropriate for fall.
