Gasparilla Inn Wedding | Natali & Mark | Boca Grande Wedding Photographer

Natalia + Mark's Boca Grande wedding was held at the Gasparilla Inn. If you follow our work, you know we love this wedding venue!  They have beautiful grounds and a resort "feel", while still being perfectly intimate. 

The couple held their ceremony on the beach. The soft sounds of the ocean and the gentle breeze was heavenly!  For the reception, the timeless color theme and coastal touches were the perfect fit for the venue and the couple. 

All expertly planned by Courtney at CocoLuna events!

When Lauren and Ryan told us, "We want a romantic ceremony and very fun reception. We plan on exiting our ceremony with fun music and sunglasses. We really want everyone to enjoy themselves. For out tent, we want candle-lighting and soft flowers. We want to be present for our wedding, we want to enjoy the day as much as we can!"  we instantly knew we'd love their Gasparilla Inn wedding day!  And we were right! 

Their ceremony was held on Banyan Street- with is one of our favorite locations in Boca Grande. It was officiated by one of Ryan's friends, which was made it unique and personal.  They also recited their own vows to one another, which were beautifully written and very touching
