This is a vacation rental company, if you are interested in renting a home on Clearwater Beach for the week, or the weekend.
While we think the Hilton is one of the best hotel options for our wedding weekend, we have included some other options for accommodations below our signature, in case the hotel block is full by the time you're ready or able to book.

The easiest airport to get in and out of when traveling to the Tampa Bay/Clearwater area. Book an airpot shuttle to the beach, coordinate with other guests for rides, or rent a car and hop on 60, which will take you over the bay straight to Clearwater Beach!
An airport that is technically closer to Clearwater Beach with service from budget airlines, such as Allegiant.
This is a car service that is handled through a smart phone app. Download and feel free to use it for trips to and from the airport or across the beach!
Go visit Winter the dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium!
Go for a sunset pirate cruise!
Have a grouper sandwich at Alix and Michael's fave restaurant on the beach!
Grab some pizza and a salad at a favorite spot of the Bigley/Shaffer family for more than 30 years!
Drive out to Honeymoon Island in Dunedin and take a ferry ride to the pristine Caladesi Island—a spot where Alix took many field trips as a kid!
See some dolphins in the wild, or if you watch a little far out from the shoreline you can see them from the beach!
Take a 30–40 minute drive north on Alt. 19 to taste some yummy greek and food and visit Alix's hometown.
The ceremony will be indoors and reception will be outdoors.
Take a look at the registry tab above!
Of course! We will have a cocktail hour and dinner after the ceremony.
Please reach out to us to let us know about your food restrictions or allergies as soon as possible.
If you know the Bigley family, you know that there WILL be dancing.
UPDATE: Transportation will be provided from the ceremony location to the reception location. There will also be transportation provided after the reception for those folks who are staying on the beach.
The attire is dressy casual*.
It is a spring beach wedding so think airy fabrics and light/bright colors or anything that you feel wonderful in!
*Remember that white is for the bride, please.
Due to venue capacity restrictions we are unable to offer plus ones.
Most guests will likely be staying on the beach and all areas are walkable. If you are driving there is a lot outside of the church with a limited number of spaces and public parking on the beach (this is hard to find on Saturdays). There is also valet parking at the Island Way Grill.
Reach out to us if you have any questions at all! We can not wait to share this weekend with you all! xoxoxo
