Intimate destination wedding in Fort Myers area
This was a beautiful day on the Sanibel Island beach, off the coast of Fort Myers. Laura and Mark are from Texas. They had their intimate destination wedding in Fort Myers area performed by Patricia Slater at a private access on Sanibel Island. Patricia Slater of Weddings by the Sea, performs weddings in the Fort Myers area for over 25 years. Laura and Mark chose Sanibel Island as their destination wedding location. It was just the two of them. We met at the Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel, where Patricia presented the bride her beautiful flowers before the ceremony. Patricia drove us to her residents only beach where we parked and walked to the beach after some photographs with the beautiful landscaping on Sanibel Island. When we arrived to the beach, we made some photographs so that we were ready for what turned out to be a beautiful sunset. The wedding ceremony was just about 15 minutes. During the ceremony, Laura and Mark collected sand for a nice vase that will hold their ceremony memories. We had some minutes before the sunset and the couple used this time to collect more sea-shells that were plentiful as they walked the beach together. After the beach wedding ceremony, the bride and groom enjoyed a celebration dinner at the Thistle Lodge Restaurant on Sanibel Island.

It was a fun beach wedding and in talking with the couple during the photo session I learned they met by chance in Dallas and knew early on that they would someday get married on the beach! So Laura and Mark searched the Fort Myers area and found Sanibel Island for their beach wedding ceremony. Laura and Mark told Patricia, they could not have hoped for a more perfect wedding ceremony. They said their incredible children were with them in spirit…and gave all their love to Wes, Rhys, Cole, Ryan and little Chloe…I remember Laura and Mark said Chloe is 3 years old. Laura and Mark are thankful to all their family members and friends for their continued support. So, after this enjoyable wedding photo session, I have chosen these images as my favorite that we created together of this intimate destination wedding in Fort Myers area.
