Gasparilla Inn in Boca Grande is one of our favorite intimate wedding venues! It's a great spot for destination weddings- the grounds are beautiful and ideal for outdoor events.

South Seas Island Resort Elopement | Lindsay & Tomasz | Captiva Island Wedding Photography

Lindsay + Tomasz's sunrise wedding was what elopement dreams are made of! Seriously, if you're going to run into the sunrise (or sunset) hand and hand, South Seas Island Resort's beach is the place to do it!  With just their parents, and us,  to witness their union, these two beautiful souls said I do with the soft sound of crashing waves and promises of forever love! 

Lindsay's dress was understated and gorgeous. We love how perfectly it paired her super uniquet airplant bouquet!

The morning was laid back, casual and oh so romantic! After vows, a single table with mimosas and all the best breakfast fixins' was set-up. With sand in their toes, they toasted to the special occasion. Don't you just love the waffle cake?! Yum!

Style Me Pretty published this wedding too (yay)! Check it out here.

Naples Ritz Carlton Wedding | Brittany & Kyle | Naples Florida Destination Wedding Photographer

Britt & Kyle wanted an intimate, family-focused wedding. As you're about to see- it was full of touching moments! The big day was held at the Naples Ritz-Carlton (one of our favs!).  The wedding & cocktail hour was hosted on the North Beach and the dinner + dancing portion of the evening was at the Beach House. 

Brittany and Kyle both included their parents in the wedding party. How cute is that?!  Each of the "maids & matrons" wore a dusty- jewel tone gown of their choosing and carried a succulent bouquet. The men wore black suits (a classic option that no man can go wrong in, in our humble option, of course.)

But perhaps the most notable members of the day, aside from the bride and groom, are Britt's adorable girls, Kenadie(5) and Quinn(4).  Kyle is formally adopting these precious little ladies and ensured that they felt included in the ceremony, by exchanging rings and vows with them too. It was super sweet!

It is so obvious how much Britt and Kyle love each other- and how much they love joining together as a family.
