Florida weddings are amazing for all sorts of reasons, but if I had to narrow down their awesomeness to just one simple phrase, it would be this: sunshine-filled beach weddings.  Because no one does a toes in the sand affair quite like the Sunshine State, and this beautiful Marco Island affair is the perfect (and I mean perfect) example.  See it all captured by Christina Shields right here.


From Christina Shields Photography… Nicki and Mike’s beach wedding left you asking for a piece of this paradise. The stunning bride in Monique Lhuillier and Groom in a Versace suit, were nothing short of perfection, as they exchanged their vows on the sandy shore of Marco Island. The Bridesmaids wore Jenny Yoo dress from Nordstrom in an opera mauve color.

Nicki and Mike wanted their wedding to intentionally reflect them. There were touches of class, elegance, and romance amongst a casual beach wedding. Their vision was to have all of their closest friends and family celebrate their special day in a laid-back, comfortable style, not to mention enjoy a vacation!

Simple candles, and lighting were provided at the ceremony for an intimate evening watching the sunset.
