Tampa Bay Bridal Show TheXpos | February 10, 2019

Christina and Jason’s waterfront Clearwater Beach wedding combined glamourous details with breathtaking views to capture their intimate celebration. With the sun shining down and the waves crashing on the Florida shore, this D.C. couple’s destination Florida wedding dazzled with a navy blue, white and silver color palette.

“Our theme was minimalist chic with a touch of glam,” the bride shared. “I really wanted the location and details to pop, and I felt like going with something subtle yet elegant really reflected my personality and everyday style.”

As the big day approached, Christina knew she wanted a Clearwater Beach wedding photographer who could turn every detail into a story that the couple could look back on for years to come.

“We really wanted someone who could capture the emotion and beauty of the location and our big day,” the bride explained. “Choosing Kéra of Kéra Photography was hands down the best investment I could have made. Her style of photography was exactly what we were looking for, and she really made our day special.”

Looking back on their oceanside celebration, the bride and groom will forever remember the gorgeous scenery and sweet words from the day they tied the knot.

“Besides the views of the waves hitting the shores and the sun shining down, we really enjoyed all of the speeches from that day. Hearing words from friends and families always make the day that much more perfect.”
