A blanket of shells cover the beach in front of Casa Ybel and the colors of sunset reflected in the gulf water and in the clouds. This is exactly what Sara and Scott imagined when they were planning their dream Florida wedding. A simple bouquet of greenery on the arch made for a perfect backdrop on the beach as the Bride and Groom said their I Do’s. Dinner on the patio at Thistle Lodge was intimate and romantic. Guests were treated to Grilled Mahi Mahi with fresh pineapple salsa and perfectly grilled Filet Mignon. Of course to top the evening off there was a stunning three-tiered cake for guests with a sweet tooth to enjoy.
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.
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.
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.
One of the many benefits to hiring a photographer from your venue’s Preferred List is that you’re hiring someone who is very familiar with the property. When Stephanie & Joe hired Nick Adams Photography for their intimate beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Florida’s Sanibel Island, they knew they could relax and let Nick guide them to the best locations at the right time of day. The result – incredible images and an extremely happy couple.
Danielle and Matt are Floridians – the beach is their backyard. They chose Casa Ybel Resort for their Sanibel Island wedding for the lush lawns and water views – not for the sand. Their nautical themed wedding put a sophisticated twist on the seaside wedding. With the ceremony and tented reception on Casa Ybel’s grassy lawns overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, guests were treated to the very best Sanibel Island has to offer.
