Clearwater Ceremony

Clearwater Ceremony

Amber and Josh came from Minnesota and chose the beautiful Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach for their destination wedding ceremony in mid-October.  Recognized as one of the best beaches in the U.S., the powdery white sands and relaxed culture of Clearwater Beach provides the perfect backdrop for romantic getaways and fun-filled family vacations.  Clearwater Beach was recently named the 2019 Best Beach in America by TripAdvisor

Surrounded by the powder white sand and crystal blue waters of Clearwater Beach, the AAA Four-Diamond Sandpearl Resort blends the natural beauty of Florida’s Gulf Coast with premium comforts and warm, personalized service. From the coastal-inspired décor in their guest rooms and suites, to Clearwater Beach’s only Four-Diamond restaurant (Caretta on the Gulf), guests will find signature amenities around every corner and relaxation reflected in every detail.  Guests can enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the sand or sip tropical cocktails by their zero-entry pool or indulge in personalized pampering at the Spa at Sandpearl.  Sandpearl Resort also offers a variety of enrichment programs that include dolphin encounters, organic food and wine tastings, and tours of the resort’s impressive art collection.  Clearwater Beach’s Sandpearl Resort is the area’s preferred venue for romantic beach weddings. Their event planning professionals will work with you to customize every detail for your special wedding day. 

Amber looked gorgeous in her wedding gown as she was escorted by her father across the gulf lawn to join Josh in front of their wedding arch.  The couples’ custom designed wedding ceremony included a special remembrance for Josh’s mother, thank you to the parents, scripture readings from the book of Genesis and Ruth, the Lord’s Prayer, blended family vows for their daughters and the wine box ceremony.  Then, as their family and friends looked on, and with an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico as their backdrop, the couple shared their own personal vows, exchanged rings and were pronounced husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies

Venue Coordination was provided by Jim, and the rest of the staff at the Sandpearl Resort, and flawless Wedding Coordination was provided by Quincy with Days Remembered by ND.  Special thanks to Photographer Shannon Livingston, for providing this beautiful picture during their ceremony.        

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Josh Gelling!
