Such an amazing and unique venue. If you want a breathtaking view with an "old Florida" feel, this is your spot.
This is such a picture perfect place! I have had the pleasure of doing a few shoots here and you couldn't ask for a better view. A seaplane was docked and it made for some really memorable images for the couple.
Incredible venue! Shannon Corrigan is the best!
