Sanibel Island Beach Weddings

It is well known that Sanibel Island has some of the best shelling in the world. In fact, Frommer’s declared that Sanibel Island has the best beaches! When we arrived to the perfect spot that the bride and groom picked out, Patricia started the intimate wedding ceremony. During the ceremony, the bride and groom collected sand and shells for a keepsake vase, this is known as the ‘sand ceremony’. When the marriage ceremony was finished, we continued with photographs of the bride and groom showing the beautiful Sanibel beach and lighthouse. After this Sanibel intimate wedding, we all left the beach and the couple went for a celebration breakfast. What a wonderful way to begin their new life together!

For over 20 years, I have had the joy to photograph weddings that Patricia has officiated and planned. Patricia provides a warm and sincere wedding elopement ceremony. She does not ‘hire out’ her wedding ceremonies to part-time officiants. This is Patricia’s full time work. It is often that guests walk up to Patricia after the ceremony to say how the ceremony words moved them….Shown above is the special location that Patricia uses for many of her Sanibel intimate wedding ceremonies…..

Here are some wedding photographs of a ceremony Patricia officiated at in May. This was a fun elopement wedding, we all arrived at 06:30 and we all had smiles! So, we walked towards the Sanibel Lighthouse at sunrise, on the way we waved to the few fishermen on the fishing pier. We made some photographs with the sun rising over Fort Myers Beach then walked along the shore to the gulf side. Along the way, the bride and groom picked up sea shells.
