Andy and Julee tied the knot in October at this Clearwater Beach wedding venue. This popular Gulf beach venue is located at Avalon and Mandalay Avenue in Clearwater Beach near Tampa. The white sand is what everyone loves about the Clearwater Beach area! The Distinctive Design wedding package they chose is called the Starfish Distinctive Design because it has large white starfish cascading down the back of the large bamboo canopy and two large starfish in the front corners. Julee walked, with her boys, toward the matching bamboo pole aisle-way with starfish accents and greenery to meet Andy and say, “I do”.

The Bride

Ivory draping on the bamboo arch went with the bride’s simple, yet elegant, spaghetti strap wedding gown. They also had a large wooden chalkboard sign announcing their new marriage. Beautiful music played for their wedding ceremony procession; they chose to walk together down the sandy aisle to say their forever vows. Songs played included, “What a Wonderful World”. Our wedding officiant and ceremony coordinator, Tyler, gave the newly joined couple the spotlight under the bamboo arch at the end of the ceremony (photo below).

The Ceremony

With over 40 guests, this couple added the optional seashell blessing after the ceremony which was included in their package. They also took part in a Sand Ceremony with turquoise and white sand as their color choices. They got to keep the vase to remember their special day with their family. Julee’s attendant (a daughter) wore a one-shoulder, aqua blue bridesmaid dress which was so pretty…it was also the color choice for the sashes on the bride and groom’s white guest chairs.

This kiss by the sand dunes and sea oats in Clearwater Beach is stunning with the couple holding her beach wedding bouquet! This bride and groom made the most of every photo opportunity on the Gulf beachfront. Clouds could not dim the joy of this Florida Beach Wedding and our professional photographer captured every moment.

The Wedding Package

You can see how soft and pretty the draping and starfish hanging down behind this couple is (pictured below). Their all inclusive beach wedding package choice made the whole day easy for them. The blue sky and water in the background are what dream weddings are made of. Julee and Andy will remember this day forever and we hope they will return to Clearwater Beach for future anniversaries!

Wedding Photography

At the end of the beach wedding the family walked down to the Gulf water to take a group photograph using our professional wedding photographer. The sun was beginning to set in the background making it a perfect end to the day. Afterward they headed over to the Palm Pavilion Inn for a reception dinner.
