This was a fun Casa Ybel Resort wedding for the friends and family of this couple from Staten Island. It was a destination wedding for most of the family and friends, Kyle and Courtney moved to the Fort Myers area just weeks before hurricane Sandy. Most of their old neigborhood was affected by the huge storm that summer. The ceremony was on the beach for their Casa Ybel Resort Wedding.
After Kyle and Courtney’s Casa Ybel Resort wedding ceremony, the guests walked to the tented lawn. They enjoyed cocktails and music while we continued photographing the families and bridal party. When we finished the group photographs, we had some time for the bride and groom to walk the beach. Courtney’s gown looked great as the wind picked up the train while they walked along the Casa Ybel Resort Beach. The cool evening breeze flowed through this tent wedding with music, candlelight and dinner throughout the wedding. Later in the evening, the party continued in the Waterfront Room, upstairs at the Thistle Lodge Restaurant. Shown here are some of my favorite photographs that we created at this Casa Ybel Resort Wedding. This Sanibel Island resort is well-known for destination weddings.
