What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Oxford, Mississippi? Is it football? I thought it might be. But what if I told you my first thought is quickly becoming, "Weddings!"? Getting to work with Kaylee and DJ on their dream wedding was such a fantastic Oxford experience!
Oxford has a wonderful small town charm that makes just an hour out of Memphis seem like a perfect getaway vacation. The old homes, the Square, and the hills! So picturesque!
When I first met Kaylee and Cheryl, I knew I was talking to an Infinity bride and her mother! They were such loving, bright people all around! It was a few months later that I got to meet Kaylee's sweet Groom to be! DJ was obviously so smitten with Kaylee. They have the kind of love that makes your heart sing!
The wedding was at The Jefferson. Boy oh boy! This venue! I was texting photos to other Infinity staff non stop from this place! It has this chic, raw, timeless, classy vibe to it! With 10,000 bricks that all said "Oxford" lining the floors and 60 crape myrtles to welcome you as you drive in, this place is stunning! They have re purposed and relocated supplies and scrapes from Tennessee, Mississippi, and Virginia! It all comes together with this industrial quilt feel to it! It's venues like The Jefferson that really help make my job easier! With all the floor to ceiling windows letting in all that natural lighting and a staff that was truly incredible, I fell for this place hard!
Kaylee and her mother, Cheryl did a great job working on simple, elegant details for the day of! Each table had an acrylic sign with the table number written in gold calligraphy, and the crisp whites played perfectly with the warm browns and golds throughout the event. The whole day had such a perfect display of who Kaylee and DJ are in their faith and as a couple.
There is something that must be said for how amazing Cheryl did with the execution of the details on the day of! She was the lady in charge, and it was my absolute pleasure to allow this sweet momma the ability to enjoy the party that they expertly put together. This is why even a bride who doesn't feel that she needs a wedding planner should always, in my unbiased opinion, have a coordinator at the very least!
My Michelle Catering did such a lovely job with the food and beverage displays!
And the cake was done by Decorators Delight!
Kaylee and DJ's wedding was just beautiful! They were a joy to work with and their families were so sweet! We even got to reconnect with them a couple weeks ago when we were back in Oxford for one of Kaylee's bridesmaids, Meghan's wedding!
As always, the Last Dance was breath taking! Just a perfect way to bookend the evening!
At the end of the evening, they watched as the Oxford sky lit up with beautiful fireworks done by Pyro Shows Inc. It truly was a dream!
