Elopements and destination weddings are two of my favorite things. Julie and Corey’s Clearwater Beach elopement had everything I love about romantic intimate ceremonies. The details included pretty florals, gorgeous dresses and a location that was amazing. Not to mention two of the sweetest sisters ever, seriously ever!
They planned from afar and traveled all the way from Ohio with their beautiful daughters for a magical week of love, commitment and celebration. Every second we spent together was filled with smiles and sweetness. The love you see here is real, so real. It was so wonderful to be part of this day with them.
Julie was so gorgeous with her adorable bridal party of two. Everything from their amazing hair to the super pretty dresses they each wore was perfection. Julie’s dress is one of my favorites this year. I love the details and open back so much!! I thought her silhouette was stunning and reminiscent of the some of the styles from many years past.
Julie video chatted with family while we snapped photos of them all getting ready. The love in the room was genuine and even those viewing over the iPad and cell phone were gushing about these beautiful ladies!!
The beach was peaceful, serene and just lovely after a day of rain showers and soft sun and Corey was calm as could be while waiting for his girls to arrive.
The ceremony was short and sweet with pretty unity sand and bubbles to celebrate first kisses as husband and wife. I think these are two of the cutest bubble blowers I have ever seen!!
Congratulations Julie and Corey. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!!
