Weddings at this location should be planned between April and November. April and May offer private beaches and cooler temperatures. The Summer Months of June, July, and August are great because it will be easier for your guests to plan a vacation at the same time as your beach wedding.
We suggest having a summer wedding in the cooler morning or evening hours. The beaches will have less crowding. Also, the evening hours provide the ideal lighting for your photographs and video. Make sure guests are well equipped with water and other hydrating liquids. It is also a good idea to have plenty of insect repellant especially if the winds are light and variable. Sunny Beach Weddings offers packages that include both your wedding photography and wedding videography. The fall months of September, October, and early November once again offer cooler temperatures and private beaches for your wedding. Fall skies provide breathing taking colors for your beach wedding portraits. Discover which wedding package is right for you.
