There is a timelessness to the ocean. It is never quite the same, but it’s always there. It’s simple appearance belies it’s complexity. The ocean has long been a symbol for love. Sophia and Arnold’s beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island was filled with elements of the sea (and love). Her gown was classic yet incredibly stunning. The soft touches of blush in the bridesmaid gowns were elegant and sophisticated. And yet, there in the subtle details, the programs, the cake, were elements of the sea. Elements as timeless as love itself.
Marita and Neil’s tropical destination wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island was cheerfully bright with bright island inspired colors.

It was tropical, yet whimsical. It’s hard to explain just what it was about Janine and Marcus’s beach wedding that made it so enchanting. Perhaps the lush floral spheres lining their sandy aisle or the oversized tropical leaves adorning their arch. Perhaps it was just the sweet sounds of the ocean lapping the beach and the gentle seabreeze that put everyone in the mood for celebrating. Perhaps it was Janine and Marcus. Their Sanibel wedding reception kicked off on Casa Ybel’s ocean front lawn and continued through the night with dinner and dancing in the elegant fabric-lined outdoor tent.
Ami & Ben came from across the pond to tie the knot on Sanibel Island – talk about a destination wedding! We love when our friends in the U.K. come to Casa Ybel Resort to celebrate. Ami & Ben got married on the shell strewn beach with just their closest family and friends present.
Getting married on the beach doesn’t mean you have to go casual. Caitlin & Jay’s sophisticated style dressed up this Sanibel Island wedding. Touches of blush, rosewood and sage complemented by gold accents set the tone for a romantic wedding reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
