Always+4Ever – A Clearwater Beach Wedding
Our Special Moments Event Planning team wanted to share some beautiful images from Erin and Devin’s Clearwater Beach wedding at the amazing Opal Sands.
One of our favorite images is probably the simplest; the awesome reflective image of Erin’s ring with the inscription Always + 4Ever.
Getting Ready For The Big Day
The bride and her wedding party spent the morning relaxing and getting ready in their suites. Erin chose this beautiful, form-fitting, modern lace wedding gown. The shimmering rhinestone and crystal spaghetti straps were the perfect pairings for her incredible sparkling wedding shoes.
The bridal party carried bouquets of soft, white hydrangea wrapped with blue satin ribbon, adding some pale pink roses for her Honor Attendant.
Erin carried a cascading bouquet of lush greenery with full pink roses, white tea roses, and beautiful white tulips.
In another part of the hotel, Devin got dressed in a handsome Navy suit with a white necktie and matching pocket square and was ready to see his bride-to-be.
The guys looked sharp in their Navy suits with pale blue neckties. But, how adorable is their Golden Retriever with a marching suit and tie?
Their First Look
Devin stood outside at the resorts water feature, facing the Gulf of Mexico as Erin made her way up behind him for their First Look.
Sunset Wedding Ceremony
Meanwhile, the last details were being added to the outdoor wedding ceremony. The glistening blue gulf set the backdrop for a wedding arch of white birch, wrapped in soft white fabric and pink and white florals.
The aisle was filled with pink and white rose petals and dozens of flickering pillar candles in glass cylinders. A harpist played softly in the background as the couple exchanged their wedding vows.
Following the beachfront wedding ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktails and butler passed hors d’ oeuvres white the newlyweds headed off under a shower of bubbles for some sunset photos.
Gold Added A Little Shimmer
Inside, the ballroom was ready for an evening of dinner and dancing. Round tables were dressed in crisp floor length white linen, the tables were accented by gold chivari chairs, gold charger plates, and gold votive candles. Pale blue napkins and centerpieces of white hydrangea and pink roses tied in the color story that began with the wedding party attire.
After the couple’s first dance and some toasts by their honor attendants, wedding guests were treated to a delicious dinner. An evening that was filled with dancing, fun times in the photo booth and some late light snacks, ended with Erin and Devin cutting this amazing wedding cake.
We have amazing memories of this beautiful Clearwater Beach wedding. We know Erin and Devin will be together, Always + 4Ever!
Thanks to the vendors who brought this wedding to life.
