Chad Skogsberg & Ali Wright 01.01.2011

A New Year's Day wedding! What a way to bring in the New Year.

Chad and Ali reside in Texas, but Ali grew up in Naples. They decided to head to southwest Florida for the most important day of their life, choosing the Naples Beach Hotel as their celebration location.

About forty guests attended that afternoon to watch Chad & Ali's wedding ceremony on the lawn of the beach club. Chad was very relaxed that afternoon. Ali was all smiles. The ceremony was beautiful, as the sun and the waves provided the perfect background as they exchanged their vows.

Afterward guests remained on the lawn to enjoy the cocktail hour, as they took in the waterfront ambiance.

The Naples Beach Hotel has its own restaurant - Broadwell's - which overlooks their beautiful golf course. Broadwell's was closed that afternoon as it would host the reception for the wedding.

Broadwell's decor is classic, with dark wood and a beautiful bar - perfect for an Irish pub. Guests enjoyed their meal, and then all gathered around the dance floor as they enjoyed drinks, the music and each other. There was a mix of music from country to rock, from 80's to current. All had a great time celebrating with Mr. & Mrs. Skogsberg. Congratulations!
