This waterfront, whimsical Clearwater Beach wedding styled shoot included organic details and a modern design to showcase the newly renovated hotel ballroom. The wedding event team at the Hilton Clearwater Beach opted for a neutral palette of dusty grays with white, greenery and pops of metallic gold.
“Our goal was to show that simple can still be stunningly elegant,” Hilton Catering Sales Manager, Brooke Tackes shared. “This modern minimalist stylized shoot was put together by an amazing team of vendors.”
With a sugar sand wedding aisle, and one of the best beaches in the country as your backdrop, the hotel's private beachfront ceremony site provides endless opportunities for breathtaking wedding portraits. Clearwater Beach wedding photography team Lifelong Photography Studios captured the newlyweds stroll along the oceanfront. With the gulf breeze tousling the bride's gorgeous locks, her sheath lace dress with a sheer bodice from Tampa Bay bridal shop Nikki's Glitz and Glam Boutique flowed effortlessly. The groom's navy suit was the perfect complement to the neutral beachfront color palette.

Inspired by current wedding trends, this wedding shoot showcases that organic greenery can have a modern twist. The long farm tables brought together an organic play on this contemporary wedding reception design.
“The centerpiece on the head table was absolutely breathtaking and had to be one of my favorite elements,” Brooke gushed. “The florist nailed our modern, organic theme with the use of rectangular glass vases that suspended an enormous arrangement of lush greens. It was a focal point of the ballroom, for sure!”
