Boca Grande Wedding Photographer

Boca Grande is one of my favorite places to be a wedding photographer 🙂 It is just a beautiful coastal community south of Sarasota that still maintains the “old Florida” feel. It’s quiet, it’s peaceful, its beautiful with all of it’s beaches, banyan trees, lighthouses and different styled homes. I love it there. I was honored to not only be a part of Lucy and Garrett’s wedding but also their rehearsal dinner.  I LOVE to be a part of the entire wedding weekend. I get to know everyone who is involved in the big day, who the relatives, and friends are. And likewise, they get to know me, become familiar with how I work and are comfortable with me around them. Lucy and Garrett’s rehearsal dinner took place at the Gasparilla Inn Beach Club. And they did their rehearsal a little different. They held a dinner for the family and bridal party {all who are a part of the wedding} and then following that intimate setting, they welcomed all the other out of town guests, or friends and family or were down for the whole weekend. So it was a welcome reception and rehearsal dinner all in one night. The decor was coastal and the weather was fantastic. It was a beautiful way to start off their wedding weekend. Here are some of my favorites form that evening. And stay tuned tomorrow, for Lucy and Garrett’s wedding post.
