It was a gorgeous late Saturday afternoon when I arrived at Indian Shores beach for Molly and Tina’s intimate elopement.
These beautiful ladies from Indiana were heading down to the Florida Keys just a few months prior when they made a pit-stop in Fort Myers and Tina decided to propose her love to Molly. While the pair had met online and had taken it slowly over the years with their relationship, they were finally ready to say “I do!” and commit to a lifetime together. Molly said yes and the planning began! They had thought about getting married where Tina proposed but decided to get married on Indian Shores beach because they loved the gulf beaches in the Tampa Bay area.
Their intimate sunset ceremony was nothing short of perfect with just their closest friends and family there to celebrate with them and the wonderful Jaimi of I Choose You Ceremony to officiate! We included both a sand ceremony and a stone ceremony where stones are tossed into the ocean with the guests’ blessings for the couple. After the ceremony, we headed to a nearby pier for some photos of just the couple and then finished up with their first dances right on the beach as the sun set into the horizon. The love that these ladies had for each other was so palpable. While they say they took it slow with formalizing things, you could feel how strongly bonded the two were and how smitten they were for each other. They had found their soulmates in each other. I wish them nothing but the best for their future together and without further ado, here are my favorites from the Indian Shores beach elopement.
