Elope on Sanibel Island, Fl

affordable elopement packages in Florida

Are you planning to get married or elope in Florida?  Sanibel Island is the preferred wedding destination for most. It's no wonder with it's rustic and pristine beaches.  Sanibel and Captiva offers an island vibe less the big businesses however it offers many beach cottages, vacation rentals and resorts for your stay.

 

We can provide you with one of our elopement packages at any location you wish on Sanibel or Captiva. For example, we can suggest places for you to stay that will allow you to use the beach for your ceremony or we can use a public beach area. Sanibel does require permitting to hold your wedding on the beach however we have been conducting weddings on Sanibel for over 10 years, so we can facilitate that permitting process for you. We have modified our beach wedding packages to conform with the beach standards and regulations on Sanibel.  There is detailed permitting requirements below in each package that are specific to this island only.

If you are planning an elopement that includes only the two of you, our most popular packages are the Simply Love, Tide the Knot or Sunset Kiss package. We also offer a discount for weekday weddings and elopements with no guests.
