I’m still swooning over Christina and Jame’s December wedding at Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach. This paradise destination is a jewel in itself with its gorgeous white sand and clear ocean water. It’s the most perfect backdrop for a beach wedding in Florida!! I love how Christina and James incorporated the Holiday vibe into their decor with deep red tones and the spruce and pine candle holders. Their wedding cake was even dolled up in poinsettia flowers! The beautiful bride is actually an old and dear friend of mine since middle school (I was in the same class as her older brother so I’ve known this sweet girl woman since she was a little, little girl)! I absolutely love her family and was so excited to work with her on this special day.
Dressed in an elegant gown from White Magnolia, Christina greeted her groom with the most gracious smile as she walked down the isle. The love these two have for one another (and their family) was so evident throughout the entire day. Fun note: Jack Harris, a famous broadcaster in the Tampa Bay area officiated the wedding which I thought was so neat!
The new Mr. and Mrs. shared their vows indoors among friends and family and celebrated their reception in the resort’s ballroom. It was one of the coldest and windiest days in December but we braved the beach and managed to capture some sunset photos which were gorgeous- totally worth freezing over! LOL. Guests were gifted with a christmas ornament stamped with Christina and James’ name and wedding date. It was even wrapped as a christmas gift! They nailed the holiday spirit on this one. As the night continued, the dance floor was filled with lots of laughter and love and of course-dancing!
Christina and James, thank you so much for letting me be apart of your special day. Everything was perfect and if your marriage is any kind of reflection of your wedding day, I know you’re in good hands. Congratulations you two, may these coming years be filled with nothing but love and happiness!
