Kelly and Chris’ love story sounds like something out of a movie! These two met on a Southwest Airlines flight when they sat next to each other! Kelly was moving from Oregon to Illinois for a new job. She says she hadn’t showered or slept in about 48 hours due to a hectic schedule, but Chris didn’t seem to mind! They talked throughout the whole flight — and the rest is history. Both Kelly and Chris love to travel, so Kelly was thinking Chris would pop the question on an upcoming trip to Marco Island, but he did it right before a Pearl Jam concert instead in an effort to surprise her. She says the surprise worked 🙂 After a recommendation from someone else in the family, they decided on a Marco Island destination wedding. We first met Kelly and Chris during their Naples engagement session. Their beach wedding ceremony was held at the Marco Island Marriott, with a reception to follow on the hotel’s outside terrace. The couple decided on a first look to give them more time for photos before the reception. They even got to enjoy a bit of their cocktail hour. The Marco Island Marriott is always a great place for wedding photography. Not only does it provide the opportunity for beach sunset photos, but there are plenty of spots inside and outside for night photography. The hotel is constantly changing, so there’s always new locations at this Marco Island wedding venue.
