Kristy and Ricky’s Clearwater Beach wedding featured a classic old-world theme, meets nautical charm. The navy, white and gold color palette complemented this nautical chic wedding at the private, outdoor Clearwater wedding venue Carlouel Yacht Club.

With a busy work schedule and large family, the bride and groom looked for a Clearwater Beach wedding planner who would take charge and keep the couple on task.

“I wanted a wedding planner who could give me an honest opinion that would be in my best interest. I often can narrow ideas down, but have a hard time choosing the final decision,” Kristy shared. “I chose Parties a la Carte because I felt that Jessica displayed the true definition of confidence. I quickly picked up on the fact that she could plan a wedding with her eyes closed! They made me feel like my wedding was the most special one they’ve ever planned. The day of the wedding was so relaxing knowing that Jessica and Ashley had everything covered. They knew me so well, they could even make a decision for me without consulting with me. Jessica and Ashley both went above and beyond!”

All of the hard work paid off as the bride went into tears after seeing her reception space for the first time.

“Our planner Jessica asked me if I wanted to see the reception area before the guests arrived (after our ceremony). Ricky and I walked in hand in hand taking in every detail that we had spent over a year planning! I had tears running down my cheeks at how beautiful everything was! Ricky and I held each other in the middle of the room and the moment felt magical!” the bride gushed.

The couple are avid travelers and opted for a hand painted globe as a guestbook alternative and continued the theme with with the dessert.

“Our guests signed the globe with our wedding date and personalization,” the bride explained. “Ricky’s grooms cake was a suitcase and passport with patches on the suitcase from all of the countries we have visited together.”
