5 Star Review on The Knot – Casa Ybel Resort

Casa Ybel was the perfect place for a destination wedding. We had an intimate wedding gathering there this past January with close friends and family. Everyone had a magical time!!! The staff at Casa Ybel were consumate professionals and had all of the details covered. It began many months before the wedding. Our wedding coordinator, Tori Weatherford, walked us through each step of the process. She was helpful in recommending photographers, DJs, florists, etc. We were thrilled with all of their recommendations. And, they were flexible allowing us to add our own touches to make the occasion uniquely ours. Mostly, she and the staff helped to ease the anxieties that come with planning one of the most important events in a lifetime. The resort is spectacular possessing a romantic blend of its historic roots with modern accoutrements. The food was excellent and we loved our wedding cake. Our suite had a gorgeous view of the Ocean and spectacular sunsets. Then there are the beaches there at the resort and the surrounding Island. The resort is conveniently nestled almost in the middle of the island close to shopping areas while still possessing the romantic feeling of a secluded get away. However, you really don’t even need to leave the resort if you’re so inclined. My wife and I love our wedding at Casa Ybel and can not wait to return for an anniversary celebration at some point. We recommend Casa Ybel and wish all you who are about to be married all the happiness and joy we have found together. And it all began at Casa Ybel!!!

I have been coming to Sanibel yearly since I was a baby, and my now husband and I traveled there a few times together, making it a special place in both of our hearts. We ate at the Thistle Lodge every time we went, where the food was always fantastic. When it was time to plan a wedding, we knew that Sanibel would be the place. We were thrilled that Casa Ybel had an opening the weekend we had our eyes on, since it wasn’t too far off. Tori is absolutely spectacular at guiding the wedding process, as well as suggesting great vendors. I even popped in for a visit one day, and Tori was kind enough to give a full tour of the grounds, including the beach site and the indoor reception venue. We had a small ceremony of 21 guests, and it was nothing less than spectacular. The beach setup made a beautiful backdrop for photos, as well as our forever memories. The day was mostly rainy, but Tori watched the radar to make sure our ceremony dodged it. My husband and I decided to do a sand ceremony during, but I had not brought containers; this was realized shortly before the ceremony start time. Tori quickly found nice glass containers for us to use, easing my worries. I only have fond memories of our ceremony and reception; it was truly a magical day thanks to Tori and Casa Ybel. The ceremony site, food, open bar, and staff were all fabulous. I highly recommend having a wedding at Casa Ybel.

I cannot begin to say enough about Cassie Ybel, Tori and her staff. I planned my son‘s wedding that was is January and it was seamless and effortless. I did not use a wedding planner but did have a super good friend that helped me. Tori made planning a wonderful experience. Food was superb service excellent the setting gorgeous. If your dream is to have a beach wedding, look no further than the beautiful beaches on Sanibel island and Casa Ybel. You will not be disappointed.

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.

Casa Ybel was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. I was a little worried about planning the wedding from out of state but my worries were put to rest after talking with Tori, Casa Ybel’s event manager. Tori kept us on track, had great suggestions, and helped us find the perfect florist and entertainment. My daughter’s wedding was beautiful (the food – amazing)! All of our guests could not stop talking about the wonderful time they had. I highly recommend Casa Ybel for a destination wedding.
