The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort has an amazing terrace ceremony site. It is breath-taking! There are views of Clearwater Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. The terrace is framed by the pink resort walls and grounded by pink bricks. This energetic couple chose bright blue and yellow as the wedding colors. The colors matched the groom’s custom Jordan sneakers – and he generously gifted his groomsmen a matching pair! The bride had a ‘first look’ with her father. This is a beautiful thing I wish couples did more often. The moment when a father sees his little girl in her wedding dress… gives me chills. There are usually some happy tears here… sometimes from the bride, sometimes from the father. But it is a beautiful moment I love capturing. Elliott and Jessica opted not to see each other before the ceremony. This made the moment when she turned the corner to walk down the aisle even more grand. I saw Elliott trying to sneak a peak at her when she walked out, but he couldn’t see her through the guests. When he saw her, his smile said it all. They wrote their own vows and the ceremony was full of love and laughter. These two are a perfect match. They both love sneakers, video games and music. They are both full of life and passion. Their excitement to be husband and wife was evident by their celebration down the aisle. 🙂 Oh and did I mention they have the most beautiful little girl?! I met these two before the baby bump and loved getting a birth announcement and Christmas photo from them as the wedding date approached. I was so excited for the big day… and also to see her in her little flower girl dress. <3 I wish your beautiful family health, love and happiness. Cheers!
