When Grace and Danny hired Floral Artistry for their tented wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island, they gave them artistic freedom of design. The results were remarkable: lush, tropical greenery, timeless white blooms and perfectly placed touches of gold. Grace and Danny said their vows in a lawn wedding ceremony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Their tented wedding reception was also on a Gulf-view lawn where guests could enjoy an authentic Sanibel experience under the stars.
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?
If we had to use one word to describe Karla & Alex’s wedding, it would be FUN. The most important thing about their Sanibel Island wedding weekend was that their guests have fun. They held a tennis tournament and volleyball match the morning of their wedding! We love how laid back these two were. Their beach wedding ceremony and tented back lawn reception were full of joy and laughter. The tropical centerpieces and sand dollar favors were a nod to their Sanibel Island wedding locale.
Casa Ybel Resort in Sanibel Island, Florida, is a popular choice for New York wedding couples. Yuyu and Dan decided to escape the busy NYC scene for a laid back, island style soiree.

When Lindsay and Gordon called us from Europe to plan to their beach wedding on Sanibel Island, we knew this would be an international affair.

Coco Luna Events does it again! Lauren and Philip imagined an ocean-side wedding with a bohemian flair. With a watercolor palette of purples and accents in metallic rose gold and rustic wood, this Sanibel Island wedding was both boho and sophisticated.
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.

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!
