SANIBEL ISLAND | FLORIDA

Destination weddings are something we are definitely excited to do more of. We have a few more planned in 2010 and are so excited about them. There's something immensely fun about knowing that everyone is coming from out of town to this one, special location to celebrate. There's an air of "vacation joy" among all the guests as they sip on their drinks and enjoy the surroundings. Everyone is a bit more relaxed. And usually, it's someplace extremely beautiful.

Lauren and Mr. E chose Sanibel Island, Florida for their destination. His aunt owns this amazing spanish-style mansion right on the beach and was gracious enough to let the family transform it into a wedding and reception site. They kept everything casual but stylish with an airy, tropical flair. Small wooden fans with silver charms and personalized water bottles were available for guests as they took their seats at the outdoor ceremony. 4 stately palm trees served as an altar while a quartet gently filled the air with wedding melodies. Afterward guests were served cocktails by the pool and dinner facing the sunset. The entire evening was beautiful and lovely and we felt so welcomed and loved by the entire family. We even got to see and catch up with one of our couples from last November, Shea & Brittany. There's nothing better than already knowing someone at a wedding. ;)

TRUE STORY: This is our biggest post yet! But hey, it's a long weekend so it's completely appropriate. ;)
