A Day At The Beach With Julia and Michael

Julia and Michael’s Clearwater Beach wedding was a relaxed, intimate beach-themed wedding where family and close friends surrounded the couple. The couple couldn’t have been sweeter, and we loved watching them on this special day.

Diamonds and Pearls

The day started with each wedding party spending time together, taking some detailed photos of the bride’s accessories, and getting dressed for the big evening.


Stay With Me

As guests arrived at the waterfront wedding venue, they were greeted with a glass of Champagne with a fresh strawberry.

With everyone in place, Michael looked on as his bride-to-be made her way down the aisle to Stay With Me by Danielle Jane.



The couple exchanged wedding rings and vows and bound themselves with a Unity Sand Ceremony. After sealing their vows with a kiss, they headed off to Just The Way You Are by the Piano Guys.



Cocktails Hors d’Oeuvres and Photos

Wedding guests headed to the patio to enjoy some cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Meanwhile, it was time for some wedding party and family photos.

The newlyweds then headed off to the beach for some wedding portraits. The Golden Hour, that hour leading up to sunset, gave them a fantastic glow!





Fly Me To The Moon

Inside the ballroom, everything was set for the reception. Tables were draped in white linens and accented with light blue napkins in a waterfall fold. Each place setting held a wedding favor for each guest in an adorable beach-themed bag. In the center of each table was a fresh floral arrangement in blue and white.



One of our favorite details of the night was the couple’s beach-themed wedding cake. It showcased the beautiful blue colors of the sky and water outside the venue. And the couple’s custom cake topper was the perfect compliment.



Following introductions, the newlyweds took to the dance floor for their first dance to Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra. A few special family dances, a delicious dinner, and a packed dance floor followed this.

In between dances, guests took time for the bouquet and garter toss, cake cutting, and dessert that included the wedding cake in Chocolate Mocha, Red Velvet, and Vanilla, as well as sweet treats like Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Cream Puffs, and layered Parfaits.

Congratulations, Julia and Michael! We’re glad we got to help you create so many special moments.
