Elegant Blush Pink and Grey Clearwater Beach Wedding | Opal Sands

 

TheXpos August 2019 Tampa Bridal Show at the Tampa International Airport

Liz and Leo’s elegant Clearwater Beach wedding was the perfect combination of simplistic elegance and romantic charm. With a blush pink and grey color palette, the bride and groom gained inspiration from Marry Me Tampa Bay to capture the celebration of their dreams for their Jewish wedding.

“I follow Marry Me Tampa Bay on Instagram and was inspired by a lot of their weddings,” the bride shared, “We really wanted a simple, elegant wedding with great food and music; we thoughtfully considered every detail to make it a great experience for all of our guests. Since Leo’s favorite snack is popcorn, we chose to serve it during our ceremony and then for happy hour; we had a cake made of cheese because I love cheese.”

When it came to selecting a Clearwater Beach wedding photographer, the Tampa bride and groom wanted someone who could capture every detail of their special day.

“A good friend had used Andi Diamond Photography, and I knew I wanted to use her for my wedding ever since,” the bride shared.

Wanting a classic look that would complement her dress yet give her that extra bit of glam, Liz chose wedding hair and makeup artists Femme Akoi Beauty Studio.

“When I envisioned my look, I really wanted to look like myself only better. I just wanted that extra bit of sparkle that would complement my traditional dress and relaxed hairstyle,” the bride explained. “I loved working with Femme Akoi! After my trial with Monica, I knew she was someone I wanted around on the day of our wedding. She definitely made me feel beautiful!”

Looking back on their beautiful day, the bride will always remember a few special moments that made it extra special.

“From Leo smashing the glass at the end of the ceremony to our 20-minute hora, there were so many little things that made us so thankful for a celebration filled with so much love and joy!” Liz reminisced.
