Beach Wedding Glam – Sanibel Island, Florida { Taryn + David }

0072

There are few things we love more at Casa Ybel Resort than beach weddings that sparkle.  Taryn and David’s Sanibel Island wedding was romantic from the white sand ceremony to the dazzling blush reception overlooking the ocean.  While romance was already in the air, the shimmer and shine of it all brought smiles to all who saw.

Wedding for Two – Sanibel Island Elopement { Shawn + Anthony }

Sanibel Island Elopement

Shawn and Anthony had their priorities straight when they tied the knot at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island, FL – Each Other + Fun = Happy Wedding Day.  We love these photos of their back lawn wedding ceremony that seem to really capture the spirit of Shawn and Anthony.  Just the two of them, laughing together on a grassy lawn overlooking the ocean – how could it get any better?  Answer: a motorcycle. A motorcycle with a sidecar, to be exact!

Laura and David had their intimate wedding on Sanibel Island June 23 at a secluded beach. They were joined by their parents for this intimate destination wedding.  After the ceremony they returned to the Thistle Lodge on Sanibel for a celebration dinner. Thistle Lodge is an award winning restaurant that has been on Sanibel Island for many years. Thistle Lodge is a part of the Casa Ybel Resort. This is a great venue for a destination wedding. In my twenty years as a Sanibel photographer, I have photographed many weddings here. Some of the beach weddings are intimate with just a bride and groom and maybe some friends. The Thistle Lodge Restaurant can accomodate weddings of over one hundred guests. With a wedding ceremony on the beach, guests will just walk less than a minute to be in the restaurant. Thistle Lodge has amazing landscaping and unique, colorful Florida plants and trees.  The wedding guests can stay at the resort interval time share units. The wedding photography can start with pictures on the green lawn then a quick walk to the beach for the ceremony. After the ceremony we take some family photographs. While we do this, the guests will usually walk the beach looking for seashells. As the whole world knows, Sanibel Island is famous for shelling!

Sanibel Island Wedding Planner and Officiant

Patricia Slater, a Sanibel and Fort Myers area wedding officiant for over 30 years, performed the sunset ceremony. Patricia, a Sanibel Island resident, provided the flowers for this destination wedding.
