Naples Bay Resort | Destination Wedding

Naples Bay Resort is luxury at its finest and the perfect destination wedding venue! From the moment we began photographing this venue, we completely fell in love!  For couples looking to combine luxury and elegance with sophisticated charm for their wedding day, this resort is absolutely incredible!  With gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces, stunning views of the marina, and incredible accommodations for friends and family, this resort is second to none.

Melanie and Trent’s wedding weekend was an unbelievable experience from start to finish!  We began by photographing their wedding rehearsal just as the sun was setting beyond the marina.  From the moment Melanie greeted us with her beautiful smile, to watching as she and Trent laughed the evening away with their closest family and friends, we knew that this wedding would remain one of our favorites!  The evening was gorgeous and we were thrilled to find that our suite’s room had an unbelievable view of the yachts just off our balcony!  We finished out the day by grabbing a few night shots of the grounds.

We couldn’t wait to begin again the next morning and jumped at the chance to get an early start with the men as they prepared for the big day!  When we joined Melanie and the girls in their suite, we loved photographing all of the details Melanie had incorporated into her day!  There were so many special details and emotional moments and it was such a privilege to be able to capture it all!

Following a beautiful first-look, Melanie and Trent joined us as we explored the resort.  There were endless opportunities for photo locations and we loved incorporating the boats to tie in the couple’s nautical themed wedding.  Thankfully, we had just finished up the wedding party photos when the first raindrops began to fall.  We were able to grab a few shots of the outdoor ceremony space just before it began to pour.  The rain didn’t stop Melanie and Trent from enjoying a beautiful and intimate ceremony within the reception space and then celebrating with the reception and finishing the night off with an epic dance!  The day was beautifully coordinated by Kristy Haden from Allure Creative Group and we can’t wait to work with her again!
