It’s always great when we get to shoot at venues that have a different look and feel to them….it’s not that we don’t dig the tropical style of Southwest Florida, but getting away from the Tommy Bahama decor and getting to work with a modern, fresh and well, different backdrop is always refreshing.

Pete and Norell had a great blend of modern, classic, Old Naples and romance through all the different parts of their wedding day. We started the day at the Naples Beach Club….getting ready there early in the day, doing a first look and getting those classic beach formals. Norell and Pete also had their rehearsal dinner at the Beach Club the night before. You can’t get any more historical here in Naples than the Naples Beach Hotel. Both Rene and I can remember the Beach Club since we were little kids…..and it’s been a favorite spot of ours for years….and one of the spots we always bring our out-of-town guests to for sunset watching!

Pete and Norell’s Greek wedding ceremony, held at Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church, was steeped in tradition and full of family, great friends and lots and lots of love! This was our first Greek wedding and it was beautiful. The love in that church was undeniable….

And the day’s festivities ended at Miromar Lakes Beach and Golf Club. Miromar is a hidden gem here in Southwest Florida! If you want modern, different and a sunset to boot, definitely check out Miromar. I love, love, love the interior design. And the outside is a throwback to a bit of old Spanish monastery. Romantic, classic and modern all rolled up into one!

Thanks Pete and Norell for sharing your special day with us! We wish you a lifetime of happiness, love and prosperity! đŸ™‚
