By informal, do you mean not the typical thing they do out by the rocks on the beach at South Seas?  That is a great spot and the Resort is all set up to do it.  My nephew got married there in 2002, my niece played the harp, Danny Morgan played for dancing on the beach afterwards and then we had the reception at Chadwicks but it seems that they now do the reception on the lawn by the T-dock.  Probably much more expensive.  If you want, I can send you some photos from the wedding.

I'd love to see pictures.  By informal. I mean close family, and a few friends.  A few years ago, we watched a wedding just in front of our PBC condo, very informal, bride, groom, and family, no chairs, just beautiful by the water.  It was so sweet, I cried even tho I didn't know them.

I don't know much about weddings despite marrying two daughters but I have a thought or two Pimont.

My recollection is that you are thinking of a small wedding party and cost is a possible issue.  Hope I'm right on that.

A wedding is the beginning of something not the end like a sunset. I would like you to consider a SUNRISE ceremony...the beginning of something. I now like sunrises more than sunsets but both are spectacular on Captiva.

This is my thought , rather than lease the expensive lawn area.by Kings Crown lease the T-Dock and do the wedding there starting at sunrise and lasting for an hour or less.  Then off to a big private breakfast for the wedding party on the third floor of the Pointe assuming their open in the morning if not do lunch.. As a second thought you could also do the sunrise ceremony up there.

I have a few sunrise pictures on this site, Take a look.

captiivated, you sentimental old fool!  Really good idea but if they do it at Thanksgiving, they will have to share the T-dock with me fishing there!  One of my most favorite times at SSIR is being on the T-dock by myself as the sun comes up and the birds are beginning to fly!

Donny,

For one day, go to the wall, same sunrise and guaranteed snook. Besides, pimont will flip a $50 bill to a security guard to guarantee privacy so that fisherman like you and me won't be able to check-out the bride while fishing..

pjmont, was the wedding you watched in March?  With bride wearing a light blue cover up, the groom shorts and a tank top?  A photographer, the official, and another couple?

the wedding we saw was in June on the beach in front of PBC I pool.  The folks stayed there during the week, and we got to talk to some of the visitors,n it was so sweet.  My daughter has been going to Captiva since she was 8 months old, it is a special place for all of us, and she wants to share it with her new husband and friends.

Captivated - You are such a romantic! Go for the sunset. Nothing beats the Captiva sunset for mood and  romantic evening.  Top it off with a little bubbly. Your guests will be thrilled.  They'll be talking about it for years to come!

pjmont, sorry I thought maybe you saw my wife and I.  Very simple ceremony, capped off with a Corona and a wine cooler.

suzig45,

Thankfully, I am a little beyond doing weddings and I don't do re-does. You are right I am overly sympathetic and a serious romantic...I can at times tear-up watching a  TV commercial, how bad is that for a retiered Marine Captain.

Osprey watcher,  Did you get a local to perform the ceremony?

Yes, her name was Patricia...something, don't remember her last name right now.  She took care of all the legal paperwork down there, and hired a photographer for us.  Top-notch!
