oxford-exchange-wedding01P I NWe flew down to Tampa after having met Jess once, but her vivacious personality and zest for life had us looking forward to her FUN wedding all year. Jess & Evan know what they like and what they like happens to be exactly the things that we like. Basically, having them in front of our cameras was a dream. We could have spent the entire three day trip in their amazing wedding venue alone – The Oxford Exchange. You’ll see what I’m talking about. Also, guys, Tampa is pretty cool. We definitely want to go back and explore more of this awesome (and slightly underrated) city!

A few things to note – Evan & Jess flew in almost all of their vendors which we’re all about, partly for our travel loving hearts, but also because we flew in our photographer for our own wedding. Evan & Jess took that concept up a notch. Their videographers – Two Cents Photo + Film – are a lovely duo in North Carolina who we now adore. Hire them. 😉 Also, their uber talented florist/stylist came all the way from sunny California… surely you’ve seen Siren Floral Co. pop up on your insta feed a time or two. She’s pretty amazing at what she does. I could go on for days about it all, but just know that we loved everything about this day – the couple, the place, the styling & vendors – it was all so perfect.

No one seemed to notice that the “getting ready” music was still playing in the background during the First Look, until Jess started dying laughing that “Hot in Herre” by Nelly was setting the mood. We all lost it at that point.

So, on the chance that you don’t follow us on Instagram (here & here) or Facebook, you may not have seen all of our Euro-spam last month. For those of you who did follow along, sorry we’re not sorry, as we were just a teensy bit excited to be shooting our first wedding in Europe. We’ve lived & traveled through Europe a lot, so it’s always been a dream of ours to go for work. Sarah & Ale made our dreams come true. We were pinching ourselves throughout their entire wedding day.

Sarah is Brazilian. Ale is Italian. They met in Denmark. Soon after they moved to Norway – Tromsø, in the very tip, top of Norway to be exact. Sarah & Ale are the kind of people you just want to be around. The wedding took place in an open field overlooking the foothills of the Italian Alps. This part of Italy is made up of hundreds of tiny towns connected by winding mountain roads. It’s definitely Italy, but the German-Swiss influence can’t be missed. It’s a beautiful blend of cultures and an incredibly charming part of Italy. In true Italian form, there was a vintage vespa, free-flowing wine & limoncello, and once evening arrived, customary games played by the bride & groom. We loved being a part of a real Italian wedding – it was such an incredible experience.

To Sarah & Ale, we have to publicly thank you for believing in us and our work. Thank you for letting us join you in Italy and for your unending kindness and generosity.

Sarah & Ale have two cats, Nutella & Mr. Pudding, who had to stay home in Norway understandably. Sarah found a way to bring them to Italy. 🙂

iceland roadtripP I NOn day 5 of our Iceland roadtrip, we visited Jokulsarlon, the glacier lagoon. It was just plain magical (and very very cold). The lagoon itself is so peacefully quiet you could hear a pin drop. Giant chunks of ice floating steadily down the lagoon, making their way out to sea. I remember the wind wiping through the lagoon so strong that it cut through my down jacket with ease. It was totally worth it though. We couldn’t resist walking out on to a few of the bigger icebergs. Toward the end of our visit at the lagoon, we saw a guy hoping from iceberg to iceberg when it broke and he fell into the freezing cold water up his knees. Yikes! We also walked across the street to the black sand beach where you can see the icebergs meeting their destiny.

The next day, we hiked to Skaftafell. I think it was the first time we had sweat on our bodies the entire trip. We reveled in actually being hot for a few hours, even while surrounded by snow. 😉

There’s Wesley feeling the burn. Such a good burn.

Check out that intense blizzard in the distance! Just from looking at the photos from the lagoon alone, you can see the weather change from gloomy, to sunshine, to looming snowstorm, back to sun again. You crazy, Iceland.

This poor tour bus got stuck on the beach and we found it kind of hilarious. You think they’d know better?
