Derek and Alicia marry at Blind Pass Beach!

This was a late afternoon Sanibel Island intimate beach wedding at Blind Pass on Sanibel Island. Friends and family met in the parking lot. We all paid for a couple of hours of parking at the Sanibel City parking lot on SanCap Road. Patricia Slater of Weddings by the Sea arrived with the Alicia’s colorful bridal bouquet and we started with photographs of the bride and groom near the parking lot. The natural green landscaping made for a great background! When the close up photos of Alicia were complete, we brought Derek into the ‘picture’ 🙂 and continued photographs of them together for a together photo session of their Sanibel Island intimate beach wedding. The family and friends were now all gathered and set for the quick walk to the beach ceremony. It was a cooler day with mostly cloudy skies, so the beach was rather clear and we could chose a quiet location on the beach for the ceremony. The day was really beautiful for the guests and family from Minnesota 🙂

For over twenty years I have photographed intimate weddings on Sanibel Island. This was another lovely destination wedding on the island. The sunset looked like it was going to ‘set’ early due to the cloudy sky so we immediately did our sunset photographs before the ceremony. The clouds made for some great color while we were shooting the images of Alicia and Derek and their families. Patricia then started the quick beach wedding ceremony and we had the rings exchange and finally Derek and Alicia were pronounced married. We then took a whole group photo of the friends and family while they were all together. I continued beach photos of Derek and Alicia while there was a little light left in the sky. I was pleased with the images as the light was soft and gentle behind the clouds. Sunset color faded quickly. Derek and Alicia then left with their guests for a celebration dinner. Shown here are my favorite images of their Sanibel Island intimate beach wedding.
