Timeless Black and White Clearwater Wedding | Sandpearl Resort

Sophistication is what Parties A’ La Carte does best, which made the wedding planning team the perfect fit for Lindsey and Alex’s classic black and white Clearwater wedding.

“We really tried to create a timeless, traditional feel with a modern edge,” the bride explained. “Our colors were very simple, black and white with a hint of gold. We decided to go with this simple but yet bold color scheme because we did not want to look back at our wedding day one day with regret.”

Living part-time in Bellair and part-time in Louisana, where the groom plays in the NFL for the New Orleans Saints, the couple searched for a Clearwater wedding planner with “organization, creativity, experience” for their luxurious celebration.

“When we were interviewing planners, some of the qualities we wanted was someone who was organized, creative, experienced, high energy, passionate, and motivated. Not only were those expectations met, but they were exceeded,” Lindsey gushed. “Jessica and her team went above and beyond for us from the beginning of our engagement shoot in New Orleans. She even went as far as bringing me a dress to wear that she thought might be better suited for the look that we were aiming for. The fact that she offered to do that was so special and important and will be something I cherish forever. Jessica was not only a great businesswoman throughout the process, but she became a great friend as well. I can speak for my whole family when I say that we love her and will miss her!”

The bride and groom shared their vows in a chapel ceremony with a circular white floral-filled arch as the perfect backdrop.

“The most important part of the wedding to us was the ceremony which I know is not the typical response. We are very traditional, and the union of one another was the most important aspect to us,” the bride revealed. “We did not have a first look which is more traditional. It was very important for us to be able to experience our first time seeing each other being while I walked down the aisle to him. This is a moment that we both will never forget and the photos from it are something that we will cherish forever.”

Transitioning from the light and airy wedding chapel to an elegant black, white, and gold Clearwater Beach Sandpearl Resort reception, the couple incorporated modern chairs, tall gold centerpieces, and long feasting tables filled with candlelight.

“Jessica Ralph with Parties A’ La Carte planned the best day of our lives. They were constantly on call and available. Their efforts did not go unnoticed or unappreciated by myself or Alex. I could always rely on her to make the best decision because I knew that she cared just as much as us, heck, maybe even more!” Lindsey beamed. “Everyone can tell how passionate Jessica is about what she does and that is what makes her and PALC the best. From the start of our relationship, Jessica had superb organizational skills which were something that we fellow OCD-ers relished!
