After a long cold winter in Wisconsin, what could be better than a beach wedding on the sunny shores of Sanibel Island, Florida? This tropical wedding in paradise could not have been more perfect.  Lauri and Bryan said their vows with toes in the sand at Casa Ybel Resort and enjoyed a night with their nearest and dearest on the resort’s open-air patio.

20161029_Magellan_Print_285

Morning weddings are so nice!  Not that anyone needs an excuse for a mimosa or bloody mary, but we think they’re more enjoyable when celebrating the union of two great people like Diane and Peter.  This fabulous couple (and their fabulous pup) hopped down to Florida from Virginia to get married on the beach at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island.  Brunch in the Waterfront Room was stunning with ocean views and gorgeous turquoise details.

Brunch Wedding on Sanibel Island – Casa Ybel Resort { Nikki + Ben }

Oh, that morning light!  If you’ve never taken a morning walk along the ocean, I recommend putting it on your vacation to-do list.  Nikki and Ben wanted to share that experience with their guests – the calmly lapping waters, the gentle morning sun and the sense that this day could last forever.  After their beach wedding, festivities continued with brunch on Casa Ybel Resort’s Patio where guests sipped mimosas and noshed on eggs benny.  When it was all over, Nikki and Ben took an afternoon swim on what would end up being a day that has indeed lasted forever.
