Elegant & Christmasy Sandpearl Resort Wedding on Clearwater Beach - Kristina and Ben

Kristina and Ben have an elegant Sandpearl Resort wedding with a Christmas vibe full of laughing, dancing, and happy tears in Clearwater Beach. A night to remember shared with lots of family and friends!

From the big apple to love! Kristina and Ben met at a bar in Manhattan with a group of friends to watch the Bruins in the playoffs. Ben decked out in his Boston gear and Kristina ready for a win. This was the first of many outings. Their fun times turned into love times. Their wedding took place at Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. This is absolutely my favorite resort in the area. They have a really cool waterfall (featured in the family and wedding party photos) and lush landscaping to contrast photos on the beach.

Kristina got ready in the bridal suite which is open and full of natural lighting. Perfect for hanging with your wedding party and hair and makeup. Kristina did a first look with her dad first, then they had a first look on the beach and photos with their families and wedding party pre-ceremony. Kristina’s tasteful dress from Pronovias left everyone speechless. During the ceremony, Jared Burnett, violinist, and Deanna Defrancesco, harpist, played together creating romantic music to set the mood! I love live music during the ceremony. It’s personal and extremely moving. After the ceremony and family photos, Kristina and Ben got sunset photos on Clearwater Beach. Even though it was cloudy all day and sort of moody, their sunset was incredible!

Their super fun, candle lit reception was in the Hunter Ballroom at The Sandpearl Resort. They also had hints of Christmas with some evergreen garland on the tables. Everyone came together sharing lots of laughs, dances, and hockey puns! Cheers to Kristina and Ben and their contagious love!

Jared and Deanna’s flawless live performance during the ceremony, the vintage arch way with greenery by Tailored Twig, the time we had to get creative during sunset, the hockey themed cake by Let Them Eat Cake, when the groom got on one knee at the reception and chugged a Smirnoff Ice.
