{Melissa & Mike @ The Hilton Clearwater Beach}

I learned that Mike is super crafty.  He actually hand crafted their ring box and all the girls foot jewelry for the beach! Melissa said he was bored during hurricane Irma.  They literally had the perfect weather for their wedding on the beach and Sandpiper deck at the Hilton Clearwater Beach.  Melissa's twin sister, Megan, (AKA fake Melissa:-) was her maid of honor and Mike's dad was his best man.  I love the custom wooden boxes that matched the guys sunglasses that Mike had gotten them as a gift.  In true beach style the girls were in teal dresses and the guys in tan shorts and Sperrys.  They all had so much fun getting ready, and that was just the beginning!  Before the ceremony we got Mike all set behind a sand dune ready to see his bride.  He had her do a little spin and then he did one too!  They had "shoe parking" for their guests so they could have their toes in the sand.  Teal and green florals with greenery behind decorated their arch.  I know sometimes people think if you do first look that it's not as meaningful a moment when the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle, but Mike had one of the sweetest reactions when he saw Melissa walking toward him.  There were some surprise seagull guests that decided to join us for a few photos as well!  The overcast sky was awesome after the ceremony.  As we headed down the beach the paddle boards and canoes were all packed up but they happened to match their wedding colors perfectly, how awesome is that? The girls found a sand beach bunny that needed to be in a photo with their flowers.  Since it was cloudy we did sunset photos a little earlier so Melissa and Mike got to go to their cocktail hour and enjoy the food and the view.   Their colors looked fabulous on the deck and there were little wooden sea turtles on everything from the invitations, to the cake, and even the center pieces.  Their guests couldn't wait to get the party started, they opened the dance floor during cocktail hour.  The toasted, and ate, and danced, and smoked cigars (while watching the Yankees) with the view of the gulf in the background.  Congrats you guys it was amazing!!! xoxoxo

{Liz & Billy @ The Hyatt Clearwater Beach}

Liz & Billy live in NYC and brought their friends and family down to the Hyatt Clearwater beach for their wedding celebration.  Liz's MOH and bridesmaid were Billy's 2 daughters, and Billy's best man was his son and groomsmen were Liz's twin sons.  Liz had a custom piece made with their names, a six pence, and blue crystal that was the perfect accent for the gorgeous white and succulent bouquet.  I love their beach chic style with the girls in light gray dress and the boys in white linen shirts and grey pants and shoes. Liz's lace and sheer backed gown was just gorgeous.  The rain held off and gave us some filtered sun for their ceremony on the 16th floor terrace.  You could see how happy and emotional Billy was as his 2 beautiful daughters walked down the aisle.  Liz was escorted by her two sons who were so proud to be giving away their mom.  After the ceremony their guests enjoyed cocktails on the balcony while we did their photos on the beach.  Their reception decor was white and green with hints of burlap and succulents.  From the minute they entered it was non stop dancing and fun. This family has got moves, especially Billy and his nephews:-)  We so enjoyed spending the day with you guys, contacts Liz and Billy!!!!
