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!
You’ve been waiting for it, we know. We teased you back in March with the behind the scenes video of the boho tropical beach wedding styled shoot Courtney Gabelbauer of Fabulously Chic Weddings put together for Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island. Now, we give you the breathtaking images that Kaity Brawley skillfully captured. Try not to faint when you see the sophisticated twist Kaleidoscope Floral put on “tropical boho” – tiny pineapples? what?! Drop us a line – tell us what you think!
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!
Casa Ybel was the perfect place for my dream beach wedding. I had 86 guests for a wedding on May 12, 2018. The ceremony was on the beach, the cocktail hour on the lawn, and the reception in a tent on the lawn. We used the patio for a Welcome Reception on May 11 and the upstairs for a Send-off Brunch on May 13. The venue was absolutely perfect. My guests and I played tennis, pickle ball, volleyball, sat at the pool, and drank too many “The Passion of Chris” drinks at the pool bar! Working with Jessica, Tori, and Jeremy was an absolute dream team. I will recommend Casa Ybel to any bride wanting to get married on the beach. I had a stress-free, beautiful, fun wedding thanks to the staff. Will recommend again and again. I can’t wait to return for an anniversary!
Having our wedding at Casa Ybel was a dream come true. Our wedding, with about 55 guests, was held on May 5th, 2018. We had our ceremony on the beach with cocktail hour on the patio and the reception upstairs in the Waterfront Room. Everything was absolutely amazing. There was rain the day of the wedding, so I was super nervous I wouldn’t be able to have the ceremony outside, but thankfully it cleared up just in time for the ceremony! The reception room was perfect for my size wedding and looked so beautiful. I can not say enough about working with Tori. She is absolutely amazing. She responded to my countless emails, any freakout moments I had, and helped keep me organized and calm during the whole process. She helped me plan every single aspect of the wedding and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of. She even bustled my dress! I cannot thank Tori, and the entire staff at Casa Ybel , enough for making our wedding better than we could have ever imagined!
Casa Ybel flawlessly executed our wedding. Tori was responsive, kind, and flexible. The entire staff was exceptional, and the venue and setting- breathtaking. I wish I could redo the day a million more times! I would highly recommend Casa Ybel, and will surely be visiting the property in the future.
Everyone knows the sunset colors change every day on this island we call home. With a bit of luck, Lindsay and Gordon chose flowers for their wedding day that ending up matching perfectly with the sunset. With a tented ceremony on the back lawn, guests were treated to gorgeous blue ocean views during cocktail hour. Bright oranges and delicate shades of peach decorated guest tables and a showstopper of a dessert table satisfied the sweet tooth of dancing guests. This tropical island wedding provides some serious beach wedding inspiration.
