What a honor and a treat to photograph JMC Communities‘ Holiday party in Clearwater. The party was held at their very own Belleview Inn a week after the hotel’s opening. For those who don’t know, Belleview Inn is a 38,000 sq-ft section that was preserved from the 400,000 sq-ft historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel built in 1897 by railroad tycoon Henry Plant. Having grown up in the area, I knew Belleview well. I had to get to the event early to photograph the “White Queen of the Gulf” right here in Clearwater, Florida. Check out the design elements of the property. The history room is very cool. If you ever have the occasion of going to the Inn make sure you check it out especially if you are a history buff.
The holiday party was fun and a perfect opportunity for JMC Communities’ employees to have a great evening. Part of the evening’s program was about the construction and interior design of the hotel. Did you know there are many shades of white and seat height is very important? There was tons of delicious food and a 3 piece band playing to keep the party going. Check out the photos and let me know what you think in the comments!
