A Tampa Bay Tale: High School Sweethearts Say “I Do.”

What’s up, fellow wanderers and hopeless romantics! Dolister Films checking in, your trusty Wisconsin wedding videographer with a tale that’s gonna warm your heart like a cold beer at the end of a long day. Grab your popcorn, ’cause this is a tale of love, adventure, and a jaw-dropping sunset on the enchanting shores of Clearwater Beach, Florida.

Check this out: Tampa Bay, where the sunsets look like they’ve been painted by Bob Ross. I had the insane opportunity to be part of a high school sweetheart couple’s elopement, who decided that there was nowhere better to say ‘I do’ than in the Sunshine State.

The romantic scene was set against the backdrop of Clearwater Beach. Being a cheesehead from Wisconsin, I couldn’t believe the scenery I was seeing. Back home, we just get the sun peeking over the horizon, but here the colors are so insane they’re barely believable.

Now, don’t get me wrong—I love my stomping grounds back in the Midwest. But the light on this side of the country—it’s different. It’s smoother, creamier. It bathes everything it touches in this warm, dreamlike glow that’s a world away from the sharp, yellow light I’m used to. And let me tell you, it added a whole new dimension to this already unforgettable elopement.

So, my friends, next time you find yourself kicking back on the sandy shores of Clearwater Beach, keep an eye out for that creamy light as it wraps around you. Until next time, keep exploring, keep chasing those sunsets, and let love do its thing.

Take it easy, Dolister Films
