A Perfect Storm

Lisa Stoner Events was recently selected by Be Inspired PR to design a wedding editorial for them in Florida. We love styling editorial shoots because they are the perfect storm.

Editorial wedding shoots are like clicking with that perfect couple while planning their wedding. That chic, stylish couple who connects with you at the beginning of their planning process; they completely trust your design and vendor recommendations. A couple who is open to exciting elements that are playful and truly reflect their personality as a couple.

For this wedding editorial, we traveled to Tampa and selected the Oxford Exchange. This historic space built in 1891 has been lovingly restored, especially the century-old brickwork, a design element that blends the old with the new.


‘Designed in the spirit of human engagement, the Oxford Exchange is a gathering place housing a collection of ideas and experiences under a single roof.’ Everything a love story, a marriage and blending of families showcases.

The blending of old and new continued with the selection of this stunning Romona Keveza textured satin ball gown; perfectly paired with a unique, loose, oversized cascading bridal bouquet of white hydrangea, white mini calla lilies, white roses, dendrobium orchids and scabiosa blooms accented with ferns and lemon leaf.

The Atrium, Conservatory and Restaurant spaces with their airiness, unique flooring, and exposed brick opened up a wide range of options. Our selection of a long table draped in vintage lace linen, offered the opportunity to add more stylish modern accents. 

By blending three unique chair styles, accenting with gold and silver and mixing bright, colorful floral arrangements with globe artichokes we were able to add texture and visual interest to create this luxurious design.

We were able to make the head table stand out by layering a glass charger with vintage porcelain, a satin napkin, and a letterpress menu card under a breathtaking suspended floral chandelier.

Other fashion-forward ideas included showcasing a trio of wedding cakes wrapped in black fondant, accented with gold stenciling, vintage embellishments, and pink sugar paste flowers.

This elegant yet modern look was enhanced by using custom engraved toasting flutes, a fun champagne tower, out of this world welcome gifts for family and friends, and a vintage letterpress invitation ensemble with modern touches.
