Radiant Sunset Ceremony { Sara + Scott } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island


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.

Intimate and Elegant Patio Reception { Julie + Bert } Sanibel Island – Casa Ybel Resort


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.

Island Escape – Casa Ybel Beach Wedding { Rachel + Jake }


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.

Romantic Island Wedding – Sanibel, FL { Chelsea + Brady }


Tropical islands are full of romantic notions.  Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort is the epitome of romantic locales which might explain it’s popularity for Florida destination weddings.  Chelsea and Brady didn’t have far to go when they crossed the state and left the hustle and bustle of Fort Lauderdale behind for a slower, more relaxed, more romantic pace on Sanibel Island.
