Sugar White Sands
Jill and Ryan came from Pennsylvania and chose the beautiful Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa on the sugar white sand, as the venue for their destination wedding ceremony in mid-July. 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.
Jill looked gorgeous in her wedding gown as she was escorted by her father across the trademark sugar fine white sand, and joined Ryan in front of their wedding arch. The couple’s custom designed ceremony included words about Love, Friendship, Loyalty, Fidelity and Trust, a scripture reading from The Book of 1 Corinthians 13 read by Jill’s brother and a Sand Ceremony. 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.
