Emily and Brandon’s Clearwater Wedding

Emily and Brandon’s Clearwater wedding was elegant and beautiful. The dusty blue, white, and gold color story paired perfectly with both the ceremony and reception spaces. And they could not have been nicer to work with.

All Right, Ladies!

Emily and the ladies’ day started at an Airbnb in Clearwater with onsite hair and makeup services, wedding details photography, fun photos together, and dressing.

Across Town At The Opal Sands

Across Clearwater Beach, Brandon was dressed, ready, and looking sharp. He took some time to take photos with his guys and waited for Emily’s arrival.



That’s My Dad!

Before seeing her groom-to-be, Emily had a first look with her dad. It’s easy to see these two have a special relationship, and it really shows. Emily took some photos with Mom and Dad before seeing Brandon.



Emily and Brandon’s First Look

Standing on a terrace overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Brandon awaited Emily’s arrival. She walked up behind him quietly and tapped him on the shoulder. The rest was pure magic. 



Welcome To The Party!

Emily and Brandon gathered with their wedding party for group photos, took some portraits at their hotel, and headed to the church for their wedding ceremony.



Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind

The wedding chapel was set with beautiful dusty blue and white flowers. They were a lovely accent to the sanctuary.

With everyone in their places, Emily, escorted by her father, made her entrance to Cannon in D. The two exchanged vows and rings, surrounded by family and friends. Sealing their vows with a kiss, the newlyweds made their exit to the Wedding March.



Dusty Blue, White, and Gold

After some family photos in the sanctuary, family and friends made their way to the reception venue. The foyer and cocktail hour spaces were dotted with tables where guests could enjoy cocktails and passed hors o’oeuvres. 

They were greeted by a beautiful floral display containing their escort cards, indicating their dinner entree selection.

Toward one end of the ballroom was an enormous head table. Five large feasting tables were arranged to accommodate forty people. All of the tables were draped with crisp white linens and surrounded by gold chiavari chairs paired with gold-toned flatware and decor accents.

The head table overflowed with beautiful blue and white hydrangea and candles. Other tables were decorated with gold containers holding blue and white flowers and floating candles.



The couple’s four-tiered white wedding cake sat in front of a gorgeous fireplace overflowing with flowers and candles.

With everyone seated, the newlyweds made their grand entrance and took to the dance floor for their first dance to Everything by Michael Bublé.



The evening continued with two touching parent dances and a blessing before the guests enjoyed a Cucumber-Wrapped Salad of Baby Greens followed by their entree selection of Chicken, Short Ribs, Florida Grouper, or Ravioli.

Following dinner, there was a series of toasts and the couple’s cake-cutting before everyone took to the dance floor to rock the house. The dance floor was packed all night, and the bride and groom never left.

Needless to say, a good time was had by all. Congratulations, Emily and Brandon!
