Outside the Ballroom: Shephard's Beach Resort

Hidden in Clearwater Beach is the Shephard's Beach Resort. The main purpose of this venue is a nightclub and it only moonlights as an event venue. It is tucked away just off the main road that runs through Clearwater beach, but the outside looks nothing like it's trendy inside.

The "Wave Room" is super modern with it's trendy lights and back lit bar area. There is also an upstairs area which leaves tons of extra dance space downstairs. The Wave Room can accommodate up to 160 guests. You can see the rest of the event space at Shephard's Beach Resort here.

I love the flat screens scattered throughout the room. Kim and Andrew used them to show off photos from their engagement session.

Upstairs you'll find booths for your guests which give the space a very intimate feel.

The room boasts large windows which provide a great view of the water.

An awesome grand staircase for the perfect entrance!

I love the lights lining the walls in this hallway. They remind me of the ocean waves... hence the name "Wave Room."
