Catlin & Jay-190

Chic Tropical Tent Wedding on Sanibel Island { Jennifer + Jeffrey }


Pineapples.  We love Jennifer & Jeffery’s tropical design and all the pineapples they included in the décor.  Their super tropical beach wedding at Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort started off with toes in the sand and continued through the night on the oceanfront lawn.  The tented reception was decked out with brightly colored florals, tropical greenery and, yep, pineapples.  Did we mention how much we love the pineapples?

5 Stars on The Knot – Casa Ybel Weddings Review

Start to finish, Casa Ybel was a dream. Tori is absolutely amazing to work with, and from the very beginning she made everything incredibly easy. From a list of vendors to start with, prompt responses to emails, and just a really great attitude that just tells you she loves this job, the whole experience was fantastic. Tori worked tirelessly to make sure everything went off well for us, and on the day of the wedding she was incredibly attentive, and worked to direct everyone where they needed to be and make sure we all got from point A to B. I did not feel for a second that I needed a day-of coordinator. The food was incredible(this was very important to us), the grounds are STUNNING, the rooms amazing, and all staff are top notch. This was, in every way, our dream wedding and we could not be happier. Casa Ybel is positively phenomenal.

Island Elopement – Sanibel, FL { Abbey + Matt }


Sometimes, it’s easier (and way more fun) to just elope!  Abbey & Matt brought only their immediate families and ran off to Florida for an outdoor oceanfront wedding.  Their ceremony was on Casa Ybel Resort’s lush Back Lawn overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  What could be a better a reason to escape the cold Ohio winter?

New York is cold in February!  Stephanie and Elijah decided to escape to sunny Florida to get married on the beach on Sanibel Island.  They welcomed their guests to warmer weather at Casa Ybel Resort where they dined al fresco on the open air patio.  This was a destination wedding done so very right!
