Blue + Yellow Whimsical Mustache Clearwater Beach Hyatt Wedding – UNIQUE Weddings & Events


It’s always refreshing to see bold bright colors at a Clearwater Beach wedding. Not mention the occasional mustache here or there! Jennifer and Mike incorporated mustaches in the bridal party pictures, mustaches as escort cards and even a tiny felt mustache on the bride’s bouquet. Definitely not your run-of-the mill wedding decor!

The couple planned a whimsical, modern beach wedding at the Clearwater Beach Hyatt Regency with the help of Clearwater Beach wedding planner Staci Mandikas of Unique Weddings and Events. Jennifer was a non-traditional bride who chose vibrant blues and yellows along with bold shapes and decor to display a fun, laid back, party atmosphere.

“They were not interested in traditions and what you ‘should do.’ They wanted a party to celebrate their nuptials, and they wanted to make sure that the environment helped their guests to feel the same,” said Mandikas.

The fun-loving couple added their personal touches throughout the wedding, including a Dukes of Hazard groom’s cake, and of course, mustaches!

“When a client gives you a theme like mustaches it really needs to stay an accent – so we stuck with a sleek modern aesthetic with lots of bright colors,” said wedding florist and decor vendor Amanda Allen of MMD Events.

To keep the with the modern design, MMD Events included yellow daffodils and yellow and white tulips for the cocktail hour centerpieces. The Clearwater Beach wedding reception featured a mixture of tall white glass centerpieces with yellow mums and low centerpieces with yellow cymbidium orchids, Craspedia, and mini yellow callas.

The bridal bouquet consisted of blueberries, corn flowers, Craspedia, mini yellow callas, yellow roses and yellow tulips. – MMD Events

This image is my favorite of BOTH of them, I love it because the lighting was so nice and although we were on a very tight schedule and Clearwater Beach was crowded, it gives the illusion that it was a very “private” moment. –  Clearwater Beach wedding photographer David Krantzberg of Basia Mille Photography.
