Happy anniversary to Brittney and James! Exactly one year ago we were celebrating their wedding day on Sanibel Island. Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at The Dunes Country Club. The setting is a little different than other Sanibel Island wedding locations because The Dunes is not right on the water. However, the nice thing about Sanibel is that nothing is more than a 5 minute drive to the beach. We began their day with some pictures of just the bridesmaids right on the water in front of Brittney's hotel, The Sanibel Inn. Which is a quick ride to the Dunes. Following a beautiful ceremony right on the golf course, Brittney and James hopped in the car with us and we went to the closest beach spot just down the road from the country club. There we were able to capture some quintessential Sanibel Island Beach portraits of the couple with the water as their background. Afterwards we returned to a fun party under the pavilion. Their guests definitely enjoyed the sunset over the golf course and a fun night of dancing under the open air poolside reception venue.
Sanibel Island is one of the best wedding locations. I always love when I can be a part of a couples special destination wedding event. And I've definitely enjoyed reminiscing about James and Brittney's wedding day. I love that as a wedding photographer I get to be a part of couples special day and even years later I still do smile when I think back at how fortunate it was that I got to share in that time.
