Jen and Ben’s destination Clearwater Beach wedding featured a light and romantic color palette to reflect the ambiance of their private outdoor Clearwater Beach venue Carlouel Yacht Club.

“We wanted soft colors for the beach (whites, blues, dusty rose and soft lavender) and then the same colors, but with pops of vibrant colors like pink, navy and purple for the reception. We also liked a lot of metallics (silver, gold, mercury) and different shades of white, ivory and cream,” the bride explained.

After falling in love with the perfect venue, the Texas bride knew she needed a Clearwater Beach wedding planner who could help bring her vision to life.

“Once we selected the venue, we asked the coordinator who she and other vendors loved working with the most, and she highly recommended Jessica Ralph of Parties a la Carte,” the bride gushed. “Jessica and her team went above and beyond in every way imaginable. They managed everything until the wedding, but also managed many unavoidable day-of crises with grace, patience and a positive attitude. It sounds cheesy, but she really makes the entire day about the bride and groom and not about her.”

With a large list of out-of-town guests, the couple made show to keep everyone entertained.

“Ben and I are both very detail oriented and family centered. We wanted everything to be enjoyable and comfortable for our family members of all ages,” Jen shared. “We wanted a lounge area by the dance floor so our older family members can be close to the action, and we wanted activities like s’mores for the kids. We loved blending casual and formal, modern and traditional.”

What did you look for in a wedding planner?
We first fell in love with the venue because of the private beach, perfect size for our small wedding and ability to exit by boat. Once we selected the venue, we asked the coordinator who she and other vendors loved working with the most, and she HIGHLY recommended Jessica Ralph.

I loved Jessica’s candor and competence. Jessica and her team went above and beyond in every way imaginable. Parties a la Carte managed everything until the wedding, but also managed many unavoidable day-of crises with grace, patience and a positive attitude. It sounds cheesy, but she really makes the entire day about the bride and groom and not about her.
