This sunset beach wedding is what dreams are made of. Without a doubt the photographer, Carrie Wildes Photography, captured this bride and groom at the perfect moment. In fact, at the exact moment when a rainbow appeared in the background.

perfect photo spots everywhere

Unquestionably the Sandpearl Resort Clearwater Beach was an excellent choice for this couples wedding venue. Because it offers both indoor and outdoor options with stunning views of the beach and the ocean beyond. For this reason, Ruthann and Tony were blessed with a variety of perfect photo spots for their wedding memories.

Starting with the sweet first look. Admittedly this artwork is the photographers favorite indoor spot. Next the ceremony was performed on the lawn, overlooking the gulf. In fact, you don’t even have to touch the sand if you don’t want to.  Third, the happy couples family and friends posed for a fun photo on the balconies. Above all, the sunset photos on the beach of just Ruthann and Tony.

Intimate Sunset Beach wedding Ceremony

Along with their closest friends and family, Ruthann and Tony said I Do at their intimate sunset beach wedding. Before the wedding they enjoyed time with their friends celebrating the joy of the day. In fact, one of their dearest friends officiated the wedding. As a result, right before Tony walked down the aisle, they stopped and said a quick prayer. 

The tropical palm leaves with the bright pinks and oranges looked amazing on the arch. And we can’t forget the sounds and colors of the ocean in the background. Likewise the florals by Artistry Designs Group made a colorful statement against Ruthann’s white wedding dress.

Reception Details

After the gorgeous ceremony, they moved inside for the wedding reception. Of course the pink and orange florals were used to adorn the table. Similarly a single flower was placed on each pink napkin. Then set on top of  gold charges. Coupled with white chairs and table linens, this wedding reception was a beautiful reflection of the couples love. Furthermore, sushi was served as an appetizer. Certainly fitting to the sunset beach wedding theme.

Ruthann told the photographer they were hoping for a beautiful sunset.  Singularly true to Clearwater beach fashion, it did not disappoint! That is to say, as they went down to the water at sunset, there was a perfect rainbow behind Ruthann and Tony. Congratulations you two, we wish you a lifetime of amazing sunsets!

The grooms wore navy blue suits coupled with rose gold bow ties. As well as matching white boutonnieres.  

We waited so long

Matt and Kevin had to postpone their original wedding date due to COVID. Because of this, it made the moment they walked down the aisle even more special. Matt said, “We all had waited for this moment, this wedding. Finally walking down the aisle, I held my husband’s hand and walked into the ceremony, both of us in tears.”

Further Matt said, “if you look at photos you’ll see lots of tears.  You could just feel the love in every moment.”

Assuredly the tears of joy were followed by a grand celebration. Starting with some fun photos on the beach captured by Dreamscape Photography. Indeed this happy couple was surrounded by the love of some really cool family and friends. That is to say, it was so cool, they had to wear shades.

These grooms know how to party

Certainly these two grooms got the party started with some piano playing and a first dance. No doubt they kept the energy high with the help of their wedding DJ, Elegant Entertainment Orlando. Subsequently they were surrounded by their family and friends on this packed dance floor.

Unquestionably the navy blue and rose gold theme was carried throughout the entire wedding.  With the stunning wedding cake and rose gold wedding bands. Of course don’t forget those glittered rose gold shoes worn by the grooms.

Wedding Planning Advice

We asked this couple why they chose these vendors. Matt replied, “We loved all of our vendors. In fact, I remember the exact moment we knew we had to hire Dreamscape Photography. We were at a wedding expo, and Nicole approached us and asked how we were feeling. Subsequently we told her we were a bit overwhelmed. Following this, she then gave us the best piece of advice for planning our wedding.” 

She said, “when hiring vendors, find people you easily connect with because you will be working with them so much and on a very big day of your lives.”

“We thanked her and moved on. Later that night we got home and realized we didn’t even know why she was at the wedding expo. Then weeks went by and we saw her again, at the next wedding show, and she remembered our names. That is why we knew we had to hire her for our photos.”
