Just After Sunrise On Clearwater Beach

On Clearwater Beach, just after sunrise on a July morning, Angela and Melvin exchanged wedding vows in an intimate wedding ceremony.

July can be warm along the Gulf Coast. However, it is usually cooler in the morning, and the hotel’s shadow shaded the beach area. Plus, the newlyweds could head out on a honeymoon cruise that afternoon.


Up Before The Sun

With a 7:30 ceremony on Clearwater Beach, the bride, groom, and nether wedding parties were up bright and early. 

There were personal items to photograph and some fun photos with the bridesmaids, and everyone needed to get dressed and ready.



Here and Now

Out on the beach, the couple’s wedding structure sat at the end of the aisle. It was draped in soft white fabric and decorated with beautiful white floral arrangements. Soft harp music played as family and close friends gathered on the beach.



With everyone in place, Melvin waited eagerly for his bride’s arrival. Angela smiled ear to ear as she made her entrance to ‘Here and Now’ by Luther Vandross.



Angela and Melvin exchanged rings, vows, and a few laughs before sealing their commitment with a kiss.



Heading To The Water

Wedding guests made their way to the water’s edge, followed by the newlyweds. Everyone took a sea shell from a basket, shared a few words, and tossed their shell into the Gulf of Mexico.



It was the perfect location for group photos before the bride and groom spent time together having their wedding portraits taken.



It’s All About Brunch!

Inside the ballroom, tables were draped in crisp white linens with white napkins and small white floral centerpieces. A three-tiered white wedding cake sat to the left of the newlyweds’ sweetheart table.



Following introductions, Angela and Melvin took to the dance floor for their first dance to ‘We Both Deserve Each Other’s Love’ by LTD. Their first dance was followed by a few worlds by the couple, touching toasts and a blessing.

Guests then enjoyed an incredible brunch reception with a fantastic Bloody Mary Bar. Food options included a delicious Seafood Station, breakfast Breads, Pastries, and Fruit, Omelets, and Eggs made to order, and carved Beef Tenderloin.



Following the cake cutting, the couple and their friends took to the dance floor. And who doesn’t love an Electric Slide with brunch? A short time later, after plenty of hugs and kisses, the newlyweds headed off for their cruise.
