Barefoot Beach Wedding | Valerie + Patrick | Naples Photographers

What a Love Story! Patrick and Valerie met in 2012 when Patrick purchased his parents’ home in the same neighborhood as Valerie on the Chain of Lakes in Northern, IL.  Their shared love of the outdoors and boating brought them together at Patrick’s lakeshore bonfire that 4th of July weekend and they have been inseparable ever since.  On April 21, 2016 on a long weekend getaway, Patrick proposed to Valerie during a romantic dinner on the beach at BALEEN’s restaurant at La Playa’s Beach Resort in Naples, FL.  The wedding date was then set for one year later on the beach at The Club at Barefoot Beach in Bonita Beach, FL.  On that beautiful sunny day, surrounded by 40 family members and friends, they pledged their love and commitment to each other and started out on their Happily Ever After!
