michelle and matthew FEATURED IN THE LIMELIGHT |hyatt regency clearwater beach resort and spa |clearwater beach, FL |Clearwater beach WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I walked into a room full of laughter. The bride, Michelle, I couldn’t even find at first as she intermingled about the ladies taking in all the moments without stress and with radiance. As we set to do details all the ladies gathered together, one feeding off of the other laughing and joking as though they were family, and that they were. The guys were the same, Carlos photographed them and they went about joking amongst another not forgetting what the day was about as Matt got ready. We took full appreciation of them before the ceremony, gravitating toward their warmth and excitement! What stood out the most was not the weather (though it shaded them when they walked down the aisle and said their I do’s, to providing a beautiful sunset) or the choice style (elegant with a splash of a nautical feel) or their decision where to marry (on the beautiful Terrace the Hyatt Regency provides), it was the gracious manner they held for others, the love for one another not losing its importance and their son that made it standout the most. Even before Matthew saw Michelle for the first time, he was choked up. He anticipated the woman walking to him and gravitated into the moment. Michelle, the gorgeous bride in return found her moment as her mother gave her away to the love of her life and father to her son. They said their I do’s overlooking the Gulf on the terrace, they involved themselves with each guest, they laughed and joked with everyone around and in-between that kept close to one another. They danced the night away. Every piece of their day ran smoothly. Matt joked that he made sure he picked up a penny that day only heads up, but I believe it had nothing to do with luck, this perfect wedding everything to do with them and their mindset. Not only did these two have a most beautiful day, but all that was put into it, every loved one, every detail, all the celebration made it perfect for them. Congratulations to Michelle and Matt, we loved every aspect of your wedding and are so grateful you chose Limelight to be a part of it! Here are a few favorites from that day!
