Intimate Backlawn Ceremony { Kirsten + Ian } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

Casa Ybel Set Free Photography -1310

Hues of peach and gold accents gave a romantic touch to Kirsten and Ian’s wedding day. Libby’s Flowers brought in fresh greenery to accent the soft elegance in the rose bouquets and centerpieces. The Groom’s bowtie, Mom’s elegant dress, the welcome bags, all boasted shades of pink.  Last but certainly not least was one last touch of “peach”, the signature drink. A peach mojito made to order for guests at the reception fit right into the theme.

Pure Elegance Under the Tent { Dede + Charlie } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

Casa-Ybel-Wedding(18)

These are some of our favorite photos, those last few moments of quiet before the whirlwind begins. The bride reflecting on the importance of this day, her husband to-be waiting for her, and all of the friends and family who have come to witness their declaration of love.

Dede and Charlie said their I Do’s a year ago on the lush green lawn at Casa Ybel and it’s one of those weddings we talk about still. The details were simple yet spectacular under the tent. Bouquets of white lilies were a stunning contrast against the bridesmaids navy dresses. Krista from Impressions Photography did an amazing job incorporating the landscape of Casa Ybel into the story of the couples wedding day, photos we’re still ooh-ing and ahh-ing over.

Brittany and Michael said I Do on the sandy beaches of Casa Ybel’s property just steps from where their tented reception was held. While the bride and groom took photos on the beach, guests were treated to gourmet passed appetizers and specialty crafted cocktails. Dinner and dancing lasted well into the evening with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico from their seats and even the dance floor.

Birds of a Feather – Sanibel Island Wedding { Laura + Dan }

Connell_Walls_Wed-341Laura and her family have been visiting the shores of Sanibel Island and staying at Casa Ybel Resort for years.  It seemed only natural that Laura & Dan fly all the way from Australia (where they live), guests-in-tow, to this magical little island when they decided to tie the knot.  They skipped the beach for the ceremony and had a lawn wedding overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  We love their sense of humor – from the Australian-American translation guide to their pink flamingos that seemed to show up whenever you least expected.  This is a family that knows how to laugh.  We were honored that they chose Casa Ybel Resort for their destination wedding and we look forward to seeing them year after year.

Also, check out the sunset view from the Waterfront Room!

Tropical Tented Beach Wedding – Sanibel Island, Florida { Helena + Drew }

Casa-Ybel-Wedding(117)

Helena and Drew wanted to bring their wedding guests to a tropical setting for a spring time getaway.  Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort was the perfect location for their destination wedding.  With sand between their toes and sunshine on their faces, these two exchanged marriage vows on the beach at Casa Ybel as their guests looked on with cold beverages in hand.  Desiring to experience the full beauty of an outdoor beach wedding, Helena and Drew continued the event under a tent on Casa Ybel’s ocean front back lawn where guests danced the night away and enjoyed the coastal breeze from the Gulf of Mexico.
