Smaller weddings have become increasingly popular in recent years as more couples opt out the big parties and opt for something more intimate with their closest friends and family.
Luckily, a reduced guest list doesn’t mean downsizing the quality or fun of the celebration, especially on Captiva. This private gulf coast island is known for offering some of the best beaches in Florida, teeming with gorgeous wildlife, brilliant sunsets, and soft white sands beaches.
