Patricia Slater's Weddings by the Sea

About Patricia Slater

Patricia Slater, Sanibel wedding official

Weddings by the Sea on Sanibel Island

As owner and operator of Weddings by the Sea, I am very knowledgeable about accommodations for weddings on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. I have spent almost 25 years as Innkeeper of a successful island resort prior to starting my Sanibel and Captiva Islands destination weddings business in January, 1995.


I performed my first island wedding ceremony on June 20, 1980. We have lived on the island since 1970, coming from small towns north of Pittsburgh, PA. To the present time, I’ve had the pleasure of being part of over 8,000 weddings. Captiva Island is just north of Sanibel, it is a pleasant drive on SanCap Road,  and certainly if you stay on one island, you will want to visit the other.

Wedding Planner and Ceremony Officiate

I can assist you with a site for the ceremony (the beach is the most popular), location for the reception/dinner party, ceremony officiate, a great wedding photographer, beautiful flowers, tasty and pretty wedding cake, hairstylist, musicians such as violinist, harpist, flutist, guitarist, saxophonist, etc., DJ, band, and any other service needed to give you a wedding beyond your expectations. My standards are very high. It is not only important for me to work with vendors that will offer outstanding services to the bride and groom, but also to help maintain my distinctive reputation.
