This gorgeous Ritz Carlton Naples wedding was a long time coming for Claire and Mike. They met while shark diving in South Africa! Like WHAT?! How is that for an adventurous love story?! This couple is just too cool without even trying. Mike lives in England and Claire is from New Orleans. Claire wanted to have a wedding on the beach, not only the ceremony but the reception as well. Imagine the reception with no shoes, breeze from the ocean, good food, music and only the closest people to celebrate the day. On the day of the wedding we had a horrible podcast that was promising a storm around the dinner time (typical Florida weather that has a mind of it’s own). Claire and Mike decided to just go with it and enjoy the beach, everyone travelled for this to Florida after all. Everything turned out so perfect! Everyone was able to enjoy their dinner and after the first dances go to the Beach House at the Ritz for drinks and a live band. Guys if you are thinking to hire a band check out Tom Sartori, I thought John Meyer himself was present at the wedding haha. Tom has such a great voice and is an incredible musician. Anyways! It DID RAIN AFTER ALL!!!! BUT we created such incredible photos in the end of the night. Talk about lemons and lemonade : ) Claire and Mike walked in the rain to the courtyard of the Ritz and we created magical photos and memories they will keep forever.
Congratulations Claire and Mike!
