This dreamy Hyatt Regency wedding had all the touches that would make a romantic heart swoon: a soft, flowy bridal gown, white florals, Florida-pink buildings, mauve bridesmaid gowns, classic tux’s, and the kind of sunset that makes Clearwater Beach famous. The Hyatt Regency is our all-time favorite Florida beach resort because of the ceremony location: a rooftop between the tall buildings with a breathtaking view of the ocean. The spot where Erica and Tom stood and declared their vows to one another held a very special place in their hearts as it was actually the spot where Tom had proposed nearly one year earlier!
The wedding day was full of sunshine and a whimsical ocean breeze, and we were BEYOND excited that the ladies were getting ready in the suite adjacent to the ceremony location with it’s own massive balcony.
Once the bride was dressed, we used that stunning Oceanview balcony as the backdrop for Erica’s first look with her father, and we were solidly ugly crying the entire time.
Across the way, the boys were celebrating the wedding day by playing games by the pool and shotgunning beer before getting all snapped up.
Erica and Tom chose to keep things traditional and not see each other until it was time for the ceremony, and Tom’s first sight of his bride to be coming down the aisle put him (and us) immediately in tears. We’re not crying, YOU’RE crying, Tom!
I’m a sucker for a massive formal party, especially when I’m lucky enough to be friends with several of the people – just take a look at how much fun we had during group portraits!
The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort is the PERFECT spot for a wedding, because it offers so many fun and unique spots for portraits, ESPECIALLY the rooftop and the beach.
The ballroom at this Hyatt Regency wedding is one of our favorites because it boasts a stunning view of the beach and quite frankly, the parties are ALWAYS AWESOME at this venue.
A huge THANK YOU to all of the vendors that helped make their day SO stinking magical:
