Black Tie Chic LGBTQ Tampa Wedding at Oxford Exchange

This Luxury Chic Tampa Wedding Makes Us Want to Pop the Champagne

Holy chic! This black-tie wedding is about to make your jaw drop.

The style and detail incorporated into Preston and Jesse’s luxury celebration is impeccable. With its modernity, industrial touches, and European-inspired flair, Oxford Exchange could not have been a more fitting venue and was a great foundation to build the design around.

Their ceremony took place in the conservatory; saying “I do” in front of a textured twig vine backdrop that was accented with white orchids and a sea of greenery surrounding them with their wedding party standing alongside, wearing mismatched, high-fashion, black ensembles.

After their love was sealed with a kiss, the magazine-worthy vibes continued into the duo’s portraits that Katelyn Prisco Photography captured so beautifully. Preston and Jesse posed with their wedding party and each other throughout the venue – some of our favorite shots being those taken of the wedding party lining the staircase and Preston and Jesse utilizing the bookstore for a backdrop.


While the memories were being documented, Jennifer Matteo Event Planning was ensuring every element was placed to perfection. Bubbly served with a white glove service through a living champagne wall display pre-ceremony, a head table made of glass and clear chairs, and a large black, white-and-gold ornately designed wedding cake are just some of the many show-stopping features.

The night ended with guests dancing on the black-and-white checkered dance floor, which even played right into the monochromatic aesthetic and the muse for the stationery suite envelope liners that really set the tone of what the day would be.

Of course a celebration that oozes with this much style has to end in a designer-worthy way too – making a Rolls Royce exit the perfect way to do so!
