Romantic Dusty Rose Wedding | Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach

Alayna and Ryan’s Clearwater Beach wedding was an elegant evening adorned with shades of mauve and dusty rose accented with gold and navy blue. Set against a backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico, the outdoor ceremony and beachfront portraits highlighted Florida’s beautiful scenery.  

“I really love the beach, but I also did not want it to be directly on the beach, so I had the best of both worlds, being on the patio of the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach just steps away from the sand. The palm trees in the background just made it very ‘Floridian’ and elegant feeling all at the same time,” the bride beamed. “Our colors were shades of mauve with gold accents. We chose these colors because it was fall but also in Florida, so we thought it was a good mix between fall, Florida, and beach.”

Alayna and Ryan’s nuptials offered a beautiful coastal setting without the sandy toes. Their courtyard ceremony featured ocean breezes and the sound of crashing waves in an intimate setting.

“The most important element of our wedding would have to be the ceremony space. I wanted to make sure that special moment was going to be as beautiful as I could possibly make it. We wanted a beachy area for our guests, but not an actual on-the-sand beach wedding. The Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach had the best of both worlds with its patio concept overlooking the beautiful palm trees,” the bride beamed. “The Wyndham was exceptionally amazing when planning the wedding. From the start, Wendy Barrata, the sales manager, really hit the ground running and always was available when I had questions or needed information. The property was very nice; the rooms were amazing, overlooking the beach, pool, and Intracoastal. The hotel staff were very attentive from start to finish. We had zero complaints.”

The Deland couple celebrated their I do’s with sunset photos on Clearwater’s award-winning beach.

“We chose Clearwater Beach for our wedding because it is one of our favorite destinations in Florida. We did do our post-ceremony portraits out on the beach, and they are some of my favorite photos,” Alayna gushed.

The newlyweds channeled their wedding vision into a romantic ballroom setting for their 140 guests. Gold charger plates and table numbers added a touch of sparkle and warmth amidst the soft blush and white flora and linens. Adding a more intimate and elegant setting, Outside the Box Event Rentals provided the pipe and drape.

It was the quality time with their parents and wedding party members that the bride and groom will forever remember as stand-out moments from the day.

“The most memorable moments were definitely getting ready with all of our special people, from the bridesmaids, mother of the bride and mother of the groom, to the groomsmen with the father of the bride and father of the groom. We will forever cherish those little memories before the big moment,” Alayna reminisced.

Where did you host your bachelorette party?
I went the easy route for my bachelorette party, a cruise. I chose this idea because it is the easiest to coordinate with multiple girls. I just wanted to have fun with no stress! 

Where did you spend your honeymoon?
We went to Rome, Florence, Venice, and Paris for our honeymoon. We went big because both of us had never been to Europe before, and it was on both of our bucket lists!

What did you look for in a wedding venue?

The most important element of our wedding would have to be the ceremony space. I wanted to make sure that special moment was going to be as beautiful as I could possibly make it. We wanted a beachy area for our guests, but not an actual on-the-sand beach wedding.

The Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach had the best of both worlds with its patio concept overlooking the beautiful palm trees. The Wyndham was exceptionally amazing when planning the wedding. From the start, Wendy Barrata, the sales manager, really hit the ground running and always was available when I had questions or needed information.

I really love the beach, but I also did not want it to be directly on the beach, so I had the best of both worlds, being on the patio of the Wyndham Grand Clearwater just steps away from the sand. The palm trees in the background just made it very ‘Floridian’ and elegant feeling all at the same time.

What were your colors?

Which vendors really exceeded your expectations?
The Wyndham Grand Clearwater was exceptionally amazing when planning the wedding. From the start, Wendy Barrata, the sales manager, really hit the ground running and always was available when I had questions or needed information.

My photographer was amazing; she captured such special and beautiful moments all throughout our wedding day. Our florist absolutely exceeded my expectations with her beautiful work. We could not have done our wedding without our planner! 

What advice would you give to other Tampa Bay couples?
If you are looking to get married in a beachy setting the Wyndham Grand Clearwater is a great location! They offer on-the-beach ceremonies as well as on their patio and inside as well.
