This couple contacted me not too long ago and told me they were coming from North Carolina!! After a date change that moved the wedding up by almost 6 mths, we wrapped up all the planning, and it was set in stone they’d be married on Septmenber 25th.
I love my destination brides, and appreciate all of the trust they put in me when traveling so far for their special day…
We started the day off at The Pink Shell hotel on Ft. Myers beach, and then made our way over to the ceremony site at Bowditch point. WOW was it hot…
a quick bit of advice for all the future destination and local brides alike… NEVER under estimate the power of Florida heat… even in September.
Luckily, the shade helped us a lot and we were able to get some amazing shots on the beach!
After the ceremony, we headed down to the Fort Myers Princess dock and boarded the boat for their reception… it was a small party but a lively bunch, and not a single person wasn’t smiling… well that is except for little Miss R who was scared of the boat. (by the end of the night she was dancing away and you’dve never known she spent the boarding events crying!)
After a few shots on the dock we took off and headed out for a sunset tour.
S and C , thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your special day, and trusting in my abilities even at 37 weeks pregnant…
I have to admit I was a little worried myself, that I might end up with me being a distraction from your event on your day…. but THANK GOSH …. everything worked out.
This will probably be my last post on the blog for a while faithful stalkers… that is until my little guy makes his appearance..
which i’m sure he will make more than one so stay tuned..
In the meantime. Enjoy a peek at S and C’s day.
caio for now… Ashley
my fav from the boat...
