Happy Wedding Wednesday!
As I mentioned yesterday, this winter has been a little intense with snowstorm after snowstorm. That's why I'm thrilled to pieces to bring you a beautiful winter wedding in Florida with no snow in sight! Instead you'll see military pride, ocean views and a lovely green & white color palette. Limelight Photography shows us the beauty:
Merritt & Will got married on January 3 at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Both the Bride & the Groom have served our great country in the United States Army. Because they love nothing more than to relax by the beach in their downtime, Clearwater Beach was a perfect choice for their wedding. Although their winter wedding day was a little cold by Florida standards, the Bride & Groom's genuine smiles created a warmth that was felt by all.
After a sweet First Look, the Bride & Groom said "I Do!" at the Sky Terrace, an intimate rooftop terrace with sparkling Gulf of Mexico views. The space was simply, yet beautifully decorated, with a focal point of a white fabric altar and an aisle lined with baby's breath poms. Family & friends watched as the Bride & Groom said their vows. A spectacular sunset marked the end of the ceremony & the beginning of a marriage.
Dinner, dancing & general merriment took place at the Aqaulea Ballroom, tastefully decorated with iron candle lanterns perched atop tree stumps & surrounded by green & white flowers, rocks & candles for a cozy feel on a winter night. A perfect setting for a fun party! Towards the end of the night, the white wedding cake topped by two adorable whales was threatened with the Groom's sword. In a final flourish, the newlyweds said good-bye in grand style with a sparkler departure!
My Favorite Moment: The Bride & Groom taking a sword to their wedding cake!
My Favorite Detail: The wedding cake with its two simple layers accented with a middle layer of clustered sugar flowers.
Congratulations, Merritt & Will!
