An Elegant and Understated Clearwater Beach Wedding

Elegant and understated might be the best way to describe Lien and Rhett’s Clearwater Beach Wedding. They are a sweet, kind couple who picked the perfect venue for their special day and surrounded themselves with people close to them.

The couple found our Special Moments Event Planning team through their bridesmaid, Julia, whose wedding our team planned several years ago.


Picking the Perfect Wedding Venue

The couple chose the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach for their wedding day. It offered them waterfront accommodations for their guests from out of town. But it also provided them with three uniquely different venues for their ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

The hotel’s spaces were beautifully appointed, allowing the couple to work with the in-house linens and floral centerpieces, focusing on the fantastic views and delicious food.


Starting Their Special Day

As with most weddings, the couple started their wedding day by getting ready and spending time with their wedding party and family. They could relax and enjoy the day while final preparations were underway for their wedding ceremony and reception.

The Sky Terrace

The Sky Terrace overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and offers a spectacular backdrop for Lien and Rhett’s wedding ceremony. The couple added a few floral arrangements, some fun “don’t be blinded by our love” sunglasses, and some ribbon wands to close the ceremony.

With everyone in their place, Rhett got a bit emotional as his bride-to-be was escorted down the aisle by her parents.

Cocktails on the Bellaire Terrace

The newlyweds took some time for family and wedding party photos as everyone enjoyed cocktails and delicious bites on the hotel’s Bellaire Terrace.

The menu included:

Florida Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

Chipotle Rubbed Medallion of Beef on Jalapeno Corn Bread

Petite Crab Cake with Passion Fruit Sauce

Coconut Crusted Shrimp Skewer with Mango Mayonaisse


Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love

The Ballroom overlooking the Gulf of Mexico was set with tables draped in floor-length ivory linens, navy blue napkins, and simple centerpieces surrounded by candles.

With family and friends gathered, the newlyweds made their grand entrance and took to the dancefloor for their first dance to Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love.”


Right Here With You

And this is where things got wild!

You see, Rhett had worked with DJ Jeff Boone on a bit of surprise for his bride. Rhett had been working on a little TOP SECRET project.

Rhett had connected with a company to write and record a special song for Lien called Right Here With You. After about thirty seconds of their rehearsed first dance, the DJ mixed into this incredible special surprise.

Lien and their wedding guests were stunned! What a sweet and touching special moment for their wedding.

Enjoying the Florida Sunset

While wedding guests enjoyed their salad course, Lien and Rhett took some time on the beach for some magical sunset photos before returning for a night filled with incredible food and dancing.
