Tamra and Darren came from Ohio and chose the beautiful Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa as the venue for their destination wedding ceremony in early September. Clearwater Beach was recently named the 2019 Best Beach in America again by TripAdvisor for the second year in a row!
The Hilton Clearwater Beach is seated on 10 acres overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. This iconic hotel offers food and drink service nearly to the water’s edge, and features the only tiki bar on the sand, private beach cabanas and new pools. Guests can refresh and revitalize in the new Hibiscus Spa, or take in a legendary sunset while dining on fresh, local fare.
Tamra looked gorgeous in her wedding gown as she was escorted by her brother across the trademark sugar fine white sand, to join Darren in front of their wedding arch. The couple’s custom designed ceremony included a Special Remembrance for Tamra’s parents, the Lord’s Prayer, a scripture reading from the Book of Genesis, the Blessing of the Hands, and the special reading Blessing for a Marriage. Then, in front of their family and friends, and with an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico as their backdrop, the couple shared their vows, exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies.
Steel Drum, Guitar and DJ Services provided by the Matt Winter Band, Florals and Décor provided by Iza’s Flowers and Flawless Venue and Wedding Coordination was provided by Courtney and the rest of the staff at the Hilton Clearwater Beach. Special thanks to Tammy, with True Love Photography for providing this beautiful picture during their ceremony.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Darren Griffin!
