Elope to Sanibel Island
Bonnie and Dan chose Sanibel Island for their Sanibel Island elopement in August of 2023. They stayed at a home in Cape Coral for their vacation and traveled to Sanibel Island for a morning elopement ceremony. Their six children enjoyed walking along the beach looking for seashells while the photographer made some photos of the wedding couple before the ceremony. The island had a direct hit from the hurricane last year, which provided for some changes to the landscape. For example, the lighthouse is much more visible as we stood on the beach for the ceremony.
Family Elopement Photos
The drive from their rental home in Cape Coral was easy and so they arrived early. We started with photos of the children, and then they quickly ran off looking for seashells. The greenery was vibrant and colorful since it has regrown after the hurricane. After the wedding couple’s photos, we brought the children back into the pictures with the green landscape and blue sky as a background.
Marriage License for Sanibel Elopements
Dan and Bonnie easily received their marriage license at the Lee County courthouse. The downtown area of Fort Myers is a fun place to visit with their children. Fort Myers has lots of sidewalks to enjoy walking looking at old shops that have been there for decades. And of course, walking around looking for a favorite restaurant!
