Captiva Wedding Photography
Captiva wedding photography is always a creative mix of stunning scenery and the joys of a union. Ashley and Brad’s wedding was no different. The wedding took place at the beautiful South Seas Island Resort located at the most northerly tip of Captiva Island. Ashley and Brad have known each other since middle school. They recently made the ultimate commitment and tied the knot. They chose the stunning lawn area of the Kings Crown Lawn as their ceremony location. A great choice if I may say so myself:) The lawn overlooks Pine Island Sound or the back bay as it is locally known. The views are stunning. You are also relatively protected from the coastal breeze. Its a great place to get married because it is secluded and convenient. There is a bridal room that is located just off the lawn area. It has large panes of glass that let in ample light for those perfect ‘getting ready” shots. A few short steps takes you out onto the lawn to your ceremony site. After the ceremony you can take pictures with your guests and family right there just as Ashley and Brad did. You then have the option of using the pier and the lush tropical greenery for the all important bride and groom portraits.
Ashley and Brad decided to also go to the beach at sunset with the wedding party, while the guests stayed behind and enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails prepared by the talented culinary staff at South Seas Island Resort. Rhonda Decherd, one of the talented wedding planning staff at South Seas Island Resort organized an open top trolly to pick up Ashley, Brad and 16 of their closest friends to take them to the secluded Sunset Cove. Check out the pictures below… you will see why:) After sunset they headed back to the Kings Crown for the reception. The rest is history!
What a great couple and a what a great, fun, group of people. I wish them all the happiness for the future and thanks to them for making Captiva wedding photography such a joy and an honor to me!
