Clearwater Beach Wedding Destination
Clearwater Beach provides a magical backdrop for your special day, with its long stretches of white-sand beach, mangrove trees and stunning sunsets. A Clearwater Beach wedding brings together the charm of one of Florida’s most beloved destination towns with the natural beauty of the gulf coast. Saying your vows on these pristine shores is an experience you will never forget.
Clearwater Beach is known for its passing schools of dolphins, gentle gulf tide and sunshine. Named the “Best Beach Town” in Florida, by USA Today, this barrier island on Florida’s beautiful west coast is the perfect spot to gather family and friends together for your big day.
With high-end hotels, a reputation for excellent restaurants and tourist-friendly amenities, Clearwater Beach is a destination your guests will love. They will be tempted to extend their stay in this scenic beach town, and your special day will give them the perfect excuse for a mini-vacation.
The famed Wedding Jolley Trolley simplifies transportation for your guests and provides a charming and memorable experience getting your guests to and from the ceremony and the reception location.
Make sure to tell your photographer to capture shots of the trolley loaded with beloved family and friends as it pulls up to our wedding site at 1 Avalon Street South — or have a videographer on board to capture special moments of your guests on their way to celebrate your big day.
