Nautical Clearwater Beach Wedding | Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Wedding

Caroline and Jimmy’s nautical Clearwater Beach wedding featured a light and airy color palette of various shades of blue and peach, along with personalized decor that represented the couple’s personalities.

“We chose a nautical theme because Jimmy is in the Navy and my maiden name is Saylor,” the bride explained. “It fit quite well with our background and our style.”

The Pensacola couple sought a Clearwater Beach wedding venue that could fit all of the things on their checklist and also provide wonderful service for their guests.

“Our biggest desire was to have a reception space that had a lot of natural light and beautiful views through large windows. We really wanted to have a space that was very open, well thought out and felt very light and airy. As much as we love the outdoors, a June wedding in Florida does not welcome convenience for an outdoor wedding, which is what we had originally wanted,” Caroline explained. “We chose the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach because of the beautifully well thought out reception space and the wonderful service. I immediately knew it was the space we had been looking for as soon as I walked in, and I felt so encouraged by the staff. Everything about their service was spectacular: from the tastings to the reception, they only ever showed us kindness, thoughtfulness and a willingness to make our wedding day dreams attainable.”

Searching for a Clearwater Beach wedding photographer who could capture the candid details and special moments of their day, the couple hired Limelight Photography.

“I wanted a photographer who was an artist and could capture the little moments that make a wedding so special. From the look of the parents of the groom as the bride walks down the aisle, to the looks of the guests during the maid of honor speech, all the way to the little kisses shared between the bride and groom all night. I wanted to make sure our wedding photos reflected the love and joy that was so apparent in every moment of the day,” the bride beamed. “We hired Limelight Photography because of their willingness to meet our specific budget and for the beautiful work they shared with us from their previous jobs at the Hyatt. We absolutely adored every person that was part of their team. They were creative, kind and hard working, all traits that led to an amazing final product in our wedding photos.”

Looking back, the bride’s most cherished memories was when she first locked eyes with her husband-to-be as she took her magical stroll down the aisle and during the reception.

“I would say the most memorable moments were when I walked down the aisle towards Jimmy (the first time we got to see each other all day), as well as the father/daughter and mother/son dances. Those few moments really exemplified the beauty we really wanted to capture in our wedding, namely, our sincere commitment we have towards each other and the ways we have been supported and loved dearly by our families and friends,” Caroline reminisced.

The Proposal:
Jimmy proposed in front of our kindergarten Sunday School class that we taught together weekly. It was a complete surprise as he popped the question on the stage while we led the kids in a big group activity. While the kids thought it to be entirely gross, I was swooning over Jimmy’s creativity that led the kids to be involved, our church family to surround us and even my entire family to be hiding in the back!

What did you look for in a wedding venue?
Our biggest desire was to have a reception space that had a lot of natural light and beautiful views through large windows. We really wanted to have a space that was very open, well thought out and felt very light and airy. As much as we love the outdoors, a June wedding in Florida does not welcome convenience for an outdoor wedding, which is what we had originally wanted. As we began our search for an indoor reception space, we were really hoping to find one that welcomed the natural beauty of the outdoors.

We chose the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach because of the beautifully well thought out reception space and the wonderful service. I immediately knew it was the space we had been looking for as soon as I walked in, and I felt so encouraged by the staff. Everything about their service was spectacular: from the tastings to the reception, they only ever showed us kindness, thoughtfulness and a willingness to make our wedding day dreams attainable.”

What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
I think one of the main things I wanted in a photographer was an artist that was able to capture the little moments that make a wedding so special. From the look of the parents of the groom as the bride walks down the aisle, to the looks of the guests during the maid of honor speech, all the way to the little kisses shared between the bride and groom all night, I wanted to make sure our wedding photos reflected the love and joy that was so apparent in every moment of the day.

How would you describe your theme? 
Nautical. We chose that theme because Jimmy is in the Navy and my maiden name is Saylor! It fit quite well with our background and our style.

What were your colors?
We loved the light and fresh colors of light blue, navy blue and peach and the look of ropes and sea coral. A lot of the wedding decorations also included greenery as the focal point. We chose those colors because we believed they reflected the nautical theme of the wedding quite well, and it gave the wedding a very fresh and light feel; everything you love to see around the sea.
