What is one of your most memorable moments at the Hyatt Clearwater Beach?
I had a bride who lost her engagement ring while on vacation. We were doing a walk through, showing the groom the Sky Terrace for the first time, and he got down on one knee and proposed again with a new, bigger ring! She was floored and so was I!

In your opinion, what is a MUST HAVE at every wedding?
Chef Kory's amazing food here at Hyatt and great music.

What is the best piece of advice you can give to a couple who is searching for a wedding venue?
Do not get overwhelmed! It is a lot of information and a big decision, but you will know what is right for you as a couple and to fit your vision and budget. Also, don't let the sticker price shock you. If you provide a budget you are working with, many venues will try to work with you to make it work for you.

Review From Previous Marry Me Tampa Bay Brides:

“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.” Previous Bride Caroline | Nautical Blue and Peach Hyatt Clearwater Beach Wedding

“We wanted the classic Clearwater Beach views, but searched for something private. I toured various beach locations for waterfront ceremonies, but they didn’t feel like “the spot” for us. As soon as I saw the Sky Terrace at the Hyatt Clearwater Beach, my jaw dropped, and I knew this was it! It was the perfect mix of outdoor elements with a private area where we wouldn’t be disturbed mid-ceremony. The views were amazing and our out-of-town guests thought they were phenomenal! We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony backdrop. I met Lindsey [of the Hyatt] and immediately clicked with her. Every question I asked, she seemed to have the perfect answer to. She was genuine, honest, knowledgeable, professional, reassuring and made herself readily available as I planned from a distance. Every single person involved at the Hyatt really went above and beyond and didn’t make me feel like they were going out of their way to do so. I would choose the Hyatt ten times over again.” Previous Bride Victoria | Elegant Palm Beach Inspired Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Wedding
