Island Elopement – Sanibel, FL { Abbey + Matt }

20171228-Abbey-Matt-390

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?

Tropical Wedding in Paradise – Sanibel Island, FL { Karla + Alex }

20180512-Karla-Alex-0724

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.
