Madeline and Shaun were high school sweethearts growing up who after some separation during college, realized that they “were meant to be with each other.” “We are are happy to be each other's first and last love,” the bride shared.
Red and Purple Clearwater Beach Wedding – Chapel by the Sea
Although they were living in Orlando during their engagement Madeline and Shaun decided to get married in Clearwater, where they originally met. The couple chose waterfront Clearwater Beach wedding venue Chapel by the Sea as a tribute to Shaun's parents who were married there over 30 years ago.
After the Clearwater Beach wedding ceremony, guests headed to nearby waterfront Clearwater Beach Recreational Center for the wedding reception. Madeline wanted a modern wedding and choose red and purple for her colors.
Keeping their guests entertained was the most important element of the wedding, so the bride and groom hired “great DJ” and photobooth. “It really made our wedding a blast for the guests,” the bride added.
To keep the wedding planning from becoming overwhelming, Madeline hired Clearwater Beach wedding planner Special Moments. “I chose Special Moments because from the minute I called to get information Tammy was already going over ideas she had and had really great advice. She made me feel really comfortable and assured me that she was on top of everything,” the bride said. “It was such a relief after I met her and knew that my wedding was in good hands.”
What advice would you give to other Tampa Bay Brides?
I would definitely recommend getting a wedding planner even if it's just for the “Day of”. Our wedding wouldn't of ran so smoothly and perfectly if we didn't.
