This was our second time shooting at South Seas Island Resort in Captiva, and this just reassured our notion that this is one of our favorite venues on the West Coast. This was a destination wedding for our sweet couple, who came all the way from Canada to celebrate their special day. And alongside 100 of their closest families and friends from all over Canada and the US, they tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony on the lawn overlooking the water.
We fell in love with Shawna and Mike when they came down to Florida for their engagement session earlier this year and we’ve been counting down the days until their wedding ever since! They are the sweetest couple and so much fun to be around. We loved meeting both their families and saw exactly where they get their kind hearts and sweet demeanors from. Although it was hot, Shawna and Mike were absolute troopers and there was still an abundance of snuggles throughout the day. And let’s just talk about how classy they both looked in her dress from Kleinfeld Bridal and his tuxedo. We loved every minute of this wedding and we’re so excited to share some of our favorites from Shawna and Mike’s big day!
One of our favorite rings! We LOVE this unique shape.Mike got Shawna a beautiful Yves Saint Laurent purse as a wedding gift! Needless to say, she loved itFirst looks with bridesmaids are our favorite!
We love a groom in a tux! First looks are our fave! Give us all the giggles!
Doesn’t Shawna remind you of Audrey Hepburn?! Absolutely stunning! This classy bridal party was a blast!
LOVE these bridesmaids dresses! Too much cuteness!!! And we loved heading out again for more portraits as the sun was setting! That sky! Gah! They had a donut bar!!! Definitely a couple after our own hearts!
Shawna and Mike, we are so glad you allowed us to be a part of your special day! We loved celebrating with you and your families and we’re honored to have captured it all! You two have such a special love and we wish you all the best on this new journey into marriage. Welcome to the married club :)
