We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for Shayla and Tony’s Clearwater Beach wedding. Most would think the weather the day after Christmas would be a little chilly (yes, even in Florida), but we lucked out with clear skies and 80 degree weather. We started the day off at Shayla and Tony’s beautiful waterfront condo, where the girls calmly got ready and prepared for the day. Earlier that morning, the group had gone out on the beach to draw a huge heart in the sand where the nuptials would be taking place. We could see it from the balcony’s condo- adorned with lovely, fresh flowers.
Tony and Shayla opted for a “first- look” before their wedding ceremony; Tony was in awe of his bride-to-be, while Shayla complimented Tony and his dapper attire. We also determined that Tony is quite the jokester! His witty remarks and sarcasm had Shayla laughing the whole evening, we loved seeing them giggle together.
It was truly a special day, not only to become man and wife, but to also join both of their families together. Tony’s twin daughters, his son, and Shayla’s son were all important bridal party members that day. They watched as their parents said “I do” inside the heart on the beach and Tony surprised Shayla by singing “All of Me” by John Legend (he has a set of pipes!).
As the sun started to set, their family and closest couple of friends sat at a table on the beach and had a beautiful dinner to celebrate. It was so surreal and intimate. We had the most amazing sunset that night, which was the perfect ending to such a memorable day. Congrats Shayla and Tony, we are so honored to have spent the day with you at your Clearwater Beach wedding!
