FEATURED: The Knot – Florida Edition

A few winters ago, Peter and I took a trip to Fort Myers Beach, Florida to visit his newly retired parents.  Instead of staying with them, we decided to make a vacation out of the trip and stay on the beach (in a hotel, I’m not a camper ya’ll).  Having never been there before, we searched beach resorts on the water, and quickly saw and read all of the positive reviews of Pink Shell Beach Resort.  This resort is located on the north end of the island, spans more than 12 acres along the ocean, and overlooks the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  We booked our trip, and loved every single thing about the resort, the island, the people, and of course the white sandy beaches.  One day while relaxing on the beach, we saw a gorgeous wedding taking place, and it was one of the best coordinated, most relaxed vibe of a wedding I had ever witnessed.  After breakfast the next morning, I ran into the wedding coordinator, Dony, and we started talking.

After that meeting, Dony and Ashley (wedding coordinator extraordinaires) have sent a number of Chicago brides and grooms having a destination wedding at the Pink Shell my way.  One of my very first couples were Michelle and Neil and I couldn’t adore these two anymore than I already do.  Their Wedding Day was simply stunning down to every detail.  Even though they hired us as their wedding photographers, they treated us like family, and we are forever grateful!  Florida has become a second home for us, and today, I am absolutely honored to see their gorgeous love story and images on The Knot!  Be sure to see more of the feature HERE and leave some love below for these two gems…


Happy Friday!
