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.
Courtney and Michael’s wedding ceremony on the beaches of Casa Ybel featured a stunning backdrop, the calm blue green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. After the ceremony the celebration moved upstairs to Thistle Lodge’s Waterfront Room for a buffet dinner featuring a roasted Prime Rib carving station. Guests were treated to views of a sunset over the Gulf and entertainment from Steve Farst to top off a perfect evening.
It was all about elegance at Jessica and Alistair’s ceremony and reception at Casa Ybel. Shades of pink and blush in the arrangements from Libby’s stood out against navy blue linens and sophisticated silver chargers under the tent. The party continued late into the night at Casa Ybel’s Thistle Lodge where guests were treated to late night flatbreads and sliders and flowing drinks.
Julie and BJ brought in colors from the beautiful gulf waters and Florida skies when planning their Sanibel Island dream wedding. Carrie Darling Events made sure no detail was missed with coordinating coral centerpieces, personalized drink coozies, and custom stationary to make sure guests knew all the details for each wedding event. The fun continued late into the night with an after party at Thistle Lodge with late night snacks and cocktails.
The photos from Heather and Patrick’s wedding say it all. The iconic wooden bridge leading onto Casa Ybel’s property provided the stunning backdrop for a post-sunset photoshoot. Libby’s Flowers stood out with deep, bold colors and bright succulents. With rustic touches and deep plum accents this tented reception was simple yet sophisticated, very fitting to the bride and groom’s style.
Summer and Yi wanted something a little different when they came to Casa Ybel to plan their perfect wedding day. The back lawn was the perfect location but they wanted an open feeling not covered by a tent. An inviting farm table, cafe lights strung between palms and succulent florals all made this intimate dinner a night to remember under the stars for the radiant bride and groom.
There are endless locations on Casa Ybel’s property for flawless wedding photos. Julie and Bert took advantage of quite a few of these spots on their wedding day.
The banyan trees provided a stunning backdrop for portraits and the covered boardwalk over the pond is an ideal spot for first glimpse shots.
A patio reception was the perfect location for dinners as guests were serenaded by Vanderbilt Strings.
Jessica and Ian’s wedding was a sweet celebration of their love followed by a night of fun. After an intimate ceremony performed by Rev. Dr. Berger, guests were treated to an evening of memories to last a lifetime. The lush lawn of Casa Ybel was the perfect compliment to their nautical themed reception under the tent.
Meg and Ashley chose the white sandy beaches at Casa Ybel for their intimate wedding ceremony. The sea grass lined shore was the perfect location as they shared their love with close family and friends. Their simple yet elegant style came through in some amazing photos enhanced by the backdrop of Sanibel Island.
It was brought to our attention recently that we don’t feature Patio receptions enough on here. Patio receptions are hugely popular at Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort. Dining outdoors with the safety of the lighted Patio awning is ultra-romantic. We especially love Rachel & Jake’s wedding from this past winter.
