Some weddings have a style that transcends time. For Jessica and Brad, a white wedding with succulents and eucalyptus branches was as timeless as the ocean is endless. They exchanged vows on the sandy beach at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island and dined outdoors under a tent on the resort’s back lawn with the Gulf of Mexico in view.
Rachel & Eric planned their Sanibel Island destination wedding from their home in Minnesota. They got married on the beach as a storm passed by, just missing the island, don’tcha know. Their wedding décor was soft and delicate and oh-so-romantic. Their family and friends joined them on the Patio at Casa Ybel Resort for a night of incredible food, live entertainment and more fun than you can shake a stick at!
Our wedding was a couple weeks ago at Casa Ybel and we could not be more thrilled with our decision to have it there! We had a dreamy beachside ceremony and beautiful tented lawn reception–it was everything I had hoped of and more! I am still getting countless compliments from my guests– the food, the location, the ambiance. I had been planning this wedding for over a year, and Tori is AMAZING to work with– she’s quick and responsive and offers super helpful suggestions on anything you can imagine. If you are getting married in Florida (and especially if you are looking for a beach wedding) – Casa Ybel should be top on your list!
Ami & Ben came from across the pond to tie the knot on Sanibel Island – talk about a destination wedding! We love when our friends in the U.K. come to Casa Ybel Resort to celebrate. Ami & Ben got married on the shell strewn beach with just their closest family and friends present.
I cannot say enough good things about our wedding festivities at Casa Ybel! The food and service from start to finish were excellent.
Tori, the event manager , was amazing throughout the whole experience. She made planning a wedding from Maryland so enjoyable and stress-free. We hosted a welcome dinner and farewell breakfast at the resort, and I am so happy we did. The food was great and the location was perfect. Jeremy, the head banquet coordinator was so attentive as were all of the servers.
We did visit a few other locations prior to making our decision to have our wedding here and I am so happy we made the choice that we did. The whole experience was an absolute dream. I have gotten so many compliments from guests about the wedding. I cannot wait to come back for future anniversaries.
Getting married on the beach doesn’t mean you have to go casual. Caitlin & Jay’s sophisticated style dressed up this Sanibel Island wedding. Touches of blush, rosewood and sage complemented by gold accents set the tone for a romantic wedding reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
