Secluded Wedding Beach on Sanibel Island

Here is a photograph of the secluded wedding location that I use on Sanibel Island. The picture above of the bride walking the beach is also from my secluded wedding beach. As a resident for over 30 years, I have access to this quiet beach area for intimate wedding ceremonies.  Sunsets are unique everyday of the year and always avialable with good weather, as it faces west. A lovely, hidden path is used to access this area. We walk through natural, dense foliage and then it all opens up to this view. Brides and grooms take time before and after the marriage ceremony to pick up their favorite seashells as a wedding keepsake of their special wedding ceremony.

Their family enjoyed a live Skype of their wedding ceremony on Sanibel beach. The Skype was activated as James and Maria arrived to the secluded beach. Family and friends watched the ceremony on a 52″ screen TV back home.
