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.
Andria & Robert’s destination wedding at Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort was as sweet as the two of them. The soft pink and grey color scheme was perfect against the aqua sea where their beach wedding took place. A night of dinner and dancing in the Waterfront Room overlooking the Gulf of Mexico was in store for their guests.
So many Casa Ybel wedding couples book because Sanibel Island is a special place to them. It’s not uncommon for our destination clients to schedule a trip to the island for planning purposes and, while they’re here, an engagement photo shoot on the beach. Before Audrey and Stephen tied the knot at Casa Ybel Resort, they stopped by for a photo session on the diverse property.
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.
A vibrant sunset, the sound of waves lapping the shore, your favorite people and the love of your life. What more could you ask for? Award winning food and impeccable service? Got that, too! We know you’ll gush over Peggy’s choice of blush colored flowers and her elegant wedding gown. This intimate beach wedding at Sanibel Island’s landmark resort Casa Ybel had all the ingredients for the perfect destination wedding.
Some weddings have a style that transcends time. For Jessica and Brad, a white wedding with succulents and eucalyptus branches was as timeless as the ocean is endless. They exchanged vows on the sandy beach at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island and dined outdoors under a tent on the resort’s back lawn with the Gulf of Mexico in view.
Rachel & Eric planned their Sanibel Island destination wedding from their home in Minnesota. They got married on the beach as a storm passed by, just missing the island, don’tcha know. Their wedding décor was soft and delicate and oh-so-romantic. Their family and friends joined them on the Patio at Casa Ybel Resort for a night of incredible food, live entertainment and more fun than you can shake a stick at!
Pineapples. We love Jennifer & Jeffery’s tropical design and all the pineapples they included in the décor. Their super tropical beach wedding at Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort started off with toes in the sand and continued through the night on the oceanfront lawn. The tented reception was decked out with brightly colored florals, tropical greenery and, yep, pineapples. Did we mention how much we love the pineapples?
New York is cold in February! Stephanie and Elijah decided to escape to sunny Florida to get married on the beach on Sanibel Island. They welcomed their guests to warmer weather at Casa Ybel Resort where they dined al fresco on the open air patio. This was a destination wedding done so very right!
