Cristina and Christopher’s Belleview Inn Wedding

The Belleview Inn was the ideal setting for Cristina and Christopher’s intimate wedding. While it might be a short drive from Clearwater Beach, this historic Belleaire venue is worlds away.


Today’s The Day!



Inside the historic inn, Cristina and Christoper spent the morning getting ready. The morning was spent getting dressed and shooting each of their wedding accessories.


To My Father

Dressed and ready, it was time for Cristina to have a special moment with her father. We love the embroidered handkerchief, and the backdrop of the inn makes for some fantastic photos.


We Found Love

Outside on the inn’s lawn, white garden chairs were set facing the beautiful Victorian verandah. Candles, flowers, and plants led up the stairs to incredible floral infinity rings where the couple would exchange their wedding vows.

With everyone in place, Christopher looked on as Cristina entered, escorted by her father.



Surrounded by loved ones, the couple exchanged wedding vows and rings, sealing their vows with a kiss before exiting to Thank God by Kane Brown.


Capturing Moments in Time

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds headed off for some incredible wedding portraits and some family photos. 



Meanwhile, wedding guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the verandah. They were treated to a Luxury Bar and Hors d’ Oeuvres, including Honey Almond Chicken Satay, Petite Crab Cakes, and fresh Tomato Bruschetta.

The Tiffany Room

Inside the resort’s Tiffany Room with its 24 Tiffany glass ceiling tiles, the stage was set for dinner and dancing.

Tables were draped with crisp white linens, and each place was set with a gold-rimmed charger plate, a napkin folded into a Love Knot, and an individual wedding favor. In the center of each table was a lush floral arrangement on a tall glass riser.


The couple’s sweetheart table and a show-stopping three-tiered white wedding cake were off to one side.

Just ahead of their guests, the newlyweds popped in for a quick look at the reception decor. And they were blown away!

Dinner and Dancing

With everyone seated, the bride and groom made their grand entrance and took to the dance floor for their first dance to “Then” by Brad Paisley.

After a welcome toast and special family dances, everyone was treated to a delicious multi-course dinner. Entree options included Chicken Piccata, Filet Mignon, and Sea Bass.

Everyone took to the dance floor, stopping long enough for the couple’s cake cutting and to enjoy dessert.

Congratulations, Cristina and Christopher! We wish you years of happiness!
