Sunset Beach Wedding – Sanibel Island, FL { Alexis + Josh }

0C5A8440-Edit

Tropical florals in shades of violet enhanced the romantic factor in Alexis & Josh’s Sanibel beach wedding.  Their ceremony on the beach at Casa Ybel Resort was breathtaking as the waves of the Gulf of Mexico lapped the shore and a gentle sea breeze filled the air.  The sunset was one not to be missed!  Vibrant colors painted across the sky made for the perfect portrait backdrop.

Beach Front Wedding Welcome Party – Sanibel Island, FL { Laura + Brian }

Casa-YBel-weddings

A while back, we shared with you Laura and Brian’s beach wedding on Sanibel Island.  We didn’t mention the epic welcome party they had the night before on our back lawn.  Guests dined on heavy hors d’oeuvres and fun bites like crab cake sliders and flatbread pizzas all while watching the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico.  A Caribbean band played island tunes and guests mingled among lounge furniture sets and cocktail tables.  Laura and Brian even did a little pre-wedding photo shoot on the beach that evening.  What a way to welcome everyone to a fun-filled wedding weekend!

Sanibel Island holds a special place in the hearts of so many, even the locals.  That is especially true for Miranda and Jacob, sweethearts who grew up in Fort Myers.  When they decided to tie the knot, they didn’t have to look much further than their own backyard for the perfect beach wedding location.  Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel was their choice for a celebration on the sand and a tented reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

MattSteevesPhotographyCasaYbelSanibel_0068

Linda and Dave like to have a little fun in life, you can see that from their wedding photos. Their funky style definitely came through in the personalized touches at their ceremony and reception. Guests were never bored, the abundance of self serve candy machines, a photo booth with endless props and a scavenger hunt kept guests entertained. The reception, in Casa Ybel’s Waterfront Room, featured a elegant plated dinner and a host of sweet treats for dessert. We can’t forget to mention the unique favors, each guest took home a personalized Lego figure, such a fun idea!

Ocean Front Wedding on Florida’s West Coast – Casa Ybel Resort, Sanibel Island { Jill + David }

20171007_Wedding_DiorioBlondin_468_vendor

Would it be cheesy to say we were totally “pumped” when professional body builders Jill and David selected Casa Ybel Resort for their beach wedding? Okay, we’ll stop!  There was nothing cheesy about this elegant fall celebration.  Jill and David’s wedding was one of the first ones we hosted after Hurricane Irma and we were so happy to show them that the property was still in top shape and ready for a weekend of fun!  We were gushing over Jill’s delicate floral arch and sweet blush and champagne linens.  Jill and Dave were as sweet as their ice cream sundae bar and we can’t wait to see them again!
