You’re My Best Friend

Something about a couple being introduced to You’re My Best Friend by Queen just makes us smile! Actually, Natalie and Kris’ Clearwater Beach wedding made us smile a lot!

The day started with wedding parties having breakfast, hair and makeup for the ladies, and some chill time for the guys before getting dressed.

Four First Looks

The wedding day continued with more first looks than we’ve ever seen – but we wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on one!

First, Natalie had her first look with girls in her wedding party.

But, then, there was the couple’s first look and some photos with TUCKER – who made several appearances later in the wedding. ADORBS.

Can’t Help Falling in Love!

The couple’s wedding ceremony, on the Sky Terrace of the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach, was set in gold and white with pops of lush greenery.

With everything set, the bride-to-be made her entrance, escorted by her father.

The couple exchanged rings and wedding vows surrounded by family and friends, under the watchful eye of one particular wedding party member.

After sealing their vows with a kiss, the couples headed off for some photos while guests enjoyed cocktails on the hotel’s 8th-floor terrace overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.


All of Me

The ballroom was set with crisp linens, gold chivari chairs, and matching gold charger plates layered with custom menu cards. Centerpieces on gold risers of varying heights brought in lots of greenery and beautiful white flowers.

Following the newlyweds’ introduction, the bride and groom took to the dance floor for their first dance to All of Me by John Legend.

The evening continued with fabulous food, touching toasts, a packed dance floor, and some photo booth fun. Guests paused long enough to enjoy a donut station and a late night ‘Make You Own Nachos Bar.
