Samantha and Robert chose the Hilton on beautiful Clearwater beach for their destination wedding! Samantha’s best friend, Leigh, and Rob’s sister, Molly were right there by her side and their beautiful daughter Lacey was the little mini flower girl. The style was classic and elegant with navy, silver/gray and ivory being the colors and calla lilies for the bouquets and boutonnieres.
Their beach front ceremony had a simple bamboo arch and they navy sunglasses for everyone which is a super nice touch especially for a beach destination wedding. Samantha was escorted down the aisle by her dad and even though Robert had his sunglasses you could feel the love and emotion as he saw her walking down the aisle. The light was just so stunning for the ceremony and pictures of the bridal party! As the sun was going down, we had the most beautiful golden light for the photos with Samantha and Robert.
Everyone got to enjoy the sunset from the Sandpiper deck where the reception was and my favorite detail they had was the “vintage” (by that I mean 80s lol) candy buffet that had neon, cassette tapes, candy cigarettes, air heads, swedish fish and more of the best of the sweet treats from the 80s! I love when the first dance has the darkening sky from the sunset in the background. So many beautiful moments and memories for these 2, we had a blast! Congratulations Samantha & Robert!!
