Wood + Sand + Style = Chic Rustic Beach Wedding on Sanibel Island

20181104_Wedding_NaveKristek_Raw_409_vendor

Rustic weddings are still in!  Couples are freshening up the look with soft touches that feel romantic and sophisticated while keeping the simple charm.  Megan and Kevin said no thanks to the barn and took to the ocean instead in this charming Sanibel Island wedding at Casa Ybel Resort.  Long wooden tables were swathed in billowy soft blush chiffon, romantic pastel blooms and candles as far as the eye could see.

A Sanibel Wedding Nature Lovers Must See

sanibel-wedding-Photographer(84)

Sanibel Island is one of Florida’s most natural islands.  Conservation of the local flora and fauna is extremely important to the residents and visitors.  This connection to nature is one of many reasons couples choose the island for destination weddings.  Danielle and Dan’s wedding at Casa Ybel Resort was filled with nods to nature.  An escort card display filled with sand from the beach, pieces of driftwood adorning the tables, and all outdoors on the ocean front lawn gave wedding guests a sense of place.

Brunch Wedding on Sanibel Island – Casa Ybel Resort { Nikki + Ben }

90

Oh, that morning light!  If you’ve never taken a morning walk along the ocean, I recommend putting it on your vacation to-do list.  Nikki and Ben wanted to share that experience with their guests – the calmly lapping waters, the gentle morning sun and the sense that this day could last forever.  After their beach wedding, festivities continued with brunch on Casa Ybel Resort’s Patio where guests sipped mimosas and noshed on eggs benny.  When it was all over, Nikki and Ben took an afternoon swim on what would end up being a day that has indeed lasted forever.

We adore the rustic touches in Andrea & Jason’s blush beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island.  The crossback chairs were the perfect addition to their dinner party style table loaded with fresh greenery and blush colored napkins.  To add a little island fun to the festivities, Andrea & Jason hired a trolley to take their guests on a tour of Sanibel!

Timeless Oceanfront Wedding – Sanibel Island, Florida { Jessica + Brad }

539

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.

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!
