Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island Florida is one of the cutest beach towns in South Florida. My clients planned a destination wedding at the Boca Grande Club, where the groom’s parents own a beachside condo. The wedding weekend allowed guests to enjoy a relaxing Florida gulf coast beach weekend. On Friday evening I photographed the couple near downtown Boca Grande at the famous Banyan Street for a quick couples session in beautiful light before they attended their rehearsal dinner celebration at Eagle Grill at 220 Harbor Drive. I was able to capture a few more candid portraits of them at Eagle Grill near sunset on the docks.
The weather was perfect all weekend, with clear blue skies and nice Florida Fall weather also known as low humidity! The Boca Grande Club condo unit where the Bride got dressed with her bridesmaids had the most amazing light filled upstairs master suite overlooking the Gulf. The upper deck walkway off the pool provided a great overview of the ceremony site on the beach and I loved the DIY paper circle banners the couple made to decorate its railing (and also the wall behind the cake!). The Clubhouse Chef created amazing cuisine all weekend long and his mini desserts display surrounding the cake was scrumptious! The florist and band were top notch as well. It was so enjoyable to photograph and be a part of such a beautiful and intimate wedding celebration.

The night before my clients destination wedding at the Boca Grande Club on Gasparilla Island Florida, we met for the first time at Banyan Street in Boca Grande for a portrait session before they attended their wedding rehearsal dinner celebration.
We met before sunset and the sunlight was filtered through the leaves of the majestic Banyan Trees. We have lovely Banyan trees in downtown St Petersburg, but the tree lined Banyan Street in Boca Grande is unbelievably beautiful. Since their wedding ceremony and reception were both being held at the Boca Grand Club, I suggested that we photograph some portraits of them on Banyan Street the day before since we had determined it would be difficult to schedule time for them to do so on their actual wedding day.
I’m really happy that my clients were able to have these photos taken before their rehearsal dinner at Eagle Grill. Banyan Street is definitely one of the most recognizable natural landmarks in Boca Grande for a reason; its canopy is simply stunning! They are an adorable couple and its so nice to have these portraits of them right before they became husband and wife.
