Elegant, Clearwater Beach Wedding | Opal Sands Wedding

Vanessa and Ivan’s intimate Clearwater Beach wedding featured modern, elegant decor with rich colors of purple, silver and white.

“Since our wedding was on the smaller side, 60 guests, we wanted each decision, from the table décor to the attire and rings, to be simple yet elegant,” the bride explained. “Our attention to details including the flowers and arrangements as well as unique favors made the day fun and intimate for friends and family.”

The Tampa couple searched for a Clearwater Beach wedding planner who could coordinate the details and logistics for their wedding day, ensuring that they and their guests were able to relax and enjoy the weekend.

“We needed someone who could manage the event from invitations to menu choices, seating arrangements and who had the contacts within the Tampa Bay area that could help us make our event memorable,” Vanessa explained. “Tammy of Special Moments Event Planning consistently listened to our vision and made the vision a reality plus more! Her eye for detail and consistent communication were helpful especially during those last few weeks. The weekend of the wedding her team printed the day’s events so the bridal party and groomsmen knew exactly where to be and when.”

To capture the details and candid moments of their wedding day, the couple hired Tampa Bay wedding photographer Djamel Photography.

“We wanted a photographer who had an artistic eye for capturing images; we didn’t want the standard posing shots. We wanted photos that would capture the moments absolutely beautifully, which is what DJ did,” the bride gushed. “Based on reviews and his website, we liked the quality of the photos and the rapid response rate and communication.”

Looking back, the bride’s most cherished memories was the final product of her months of planning.

“The scenery during the ceremony was one of the most memorable parts of the day. We held the ceremony just before sunset. Walking into the reception hall that evening and seeing how it all came together under the vision of our wedding planner and vendors was stunning,” Vanessa reminisced.

The Proposal:
Ivan planned a trip to St. Lucia and Grenada for a week of rest and relaxation from our hectic lives. On the third day of vacation in St. Lucia, he rented a private chartered catamaran to explore the island for the day. At the end of the day just before sunset, we pulled up to a private island and sat on the beach. Just as we were about to depart, Ivan proposed. It was super private, and with just the two of us, it was perfect for our personalities. We quickly chose October of that year to get married as the fall in Florida is absolutely stunning and a bit drier.
