    A Wedding Dream

    SSIR gave us the wedding of our dreams. To start, the venue is beyond stunning. We got married at sunset overlooking the ocean and it truly was breathtaking. If your looking for the look of a tropical destination wedding within the United States, this is your venue. Our wedding coordinator was Christine Coppola and she truly was amazing. She was very responsive with any questions we had, helped us organize all our details, and really made any request we had possible. I HIGHLY recommend South Seas for your dream wedding!

    A beautiful place for a wedding

    South Seas is amazing place for a wedding. We wanted a destination wedding and didn't even have to leave the states for what we wanted! They have numerous spaces for different events. Malissa, the wedding coordinator, was excellent and very professional. She wanted to capture your vision and then some. Everyone who works at South Seas, wanted you to have the best experience. I would highly recommend this resort!

South Seas is one of the premier destination wedding spots in Florida and probably the world…. seriously. That sounds like a bold statement but it's not without substance. Firstly, South Seas, boasts a location to die for. It has several first class choices of wedding venues, from the lawns to the beaches. It is located at the end of Captiva Island,(no through traffic) in a private, gated, setting. The Resort is surrounded by lush greenery and tropical landscaping. There are unbelievable views overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the back bay and the marina. The ultimate accommodations at 'Lands End' have spectacular views across Redfish Pass which is not only beautiful but a world renowned fishing spot. Other activities include: golf, swimming, tennis and sailing. There are several pools on the resort including a large luxurious pool with cabanas and chair side service. The kiddies pool and cool slide is conveniently located out of earshot:) There are several first class restaurants on and around the resort. From a photographers standpoint; South Seas is a gem of a resort. Photographically, there is plenty of variety, from the candy store to the beaches, from the lawn areas to the marina. It really has a bit of everything. Did you know that it also is the only place on Sanibel and Captiva that you can photograph into the sun and away from the sun and still have water behind you? South Seas has a well equipped marina and a trip to the resort without a sunset cruise would be sacrilege. (incidentally you can have a wedding or rehearsal dinner catered, aboard one of the classic looking river boats) The wedding staff at the resort are both friendly and very professional, I would highly recommend letting them guide you through the wedding planning process to make your day as seamless as possible. What is there not to love…. A '5 star' rating from Nick Adams Photography
