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!
Coco Luna Events does it again! Lauren and Philip imagined an ocean-side wedding with a bohemian flair. With a watercolor palette of purples and accents in metallic rose gold and rustic wood, this Sanibel Island wedding was both boho and sophisticated.
Casa Ybel Resort‘s history dates back to the 1880’s. It’s been a haven for lovers since the founder’s daughter, Georgia, married a guest of the inn. It’s no surprise that couples from all over the world flock to Sanibel Island to get married on the shores of Casa Ybel Resort and dine in the historic Thistle Lodge, a replica of the Victorian manor built for Georgia and her husband as a wedding gift.
It was the historic feature that made Casa Ybel Resort the perfect fit for Chris and Maggie’s vintage infused beach wedding. With a distinct 1930’s style, guests enjoyed music played on an old phonograph (an invention of Thomas Edison – one of Casa Ybel’s most famous guests), sat at tables adorned with simple timeless florals and even snapped photos sitting on a 1930’s inspired half moon (designed by the bride’s father).
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.
So many couples come to Florida to get married for the tropical weather, sandy beaches and beautiful flora. Chelsey & Travis’ wedding encompassed all of those wonderful Florida features. Their beach wedding ceremony was decked out with tropical blooms and their tented wedding on Casa Ybel Resort’s oceanfront back lawn glowed with lanterns, burlap and seashells. Chelsey & Travis even made surfboard cookies for wedding favors!
We love this wedding so much (and this couple!). Jamie & Nick’s tented beach wedding was published by The Celebration Society and we shared that story with you here. But we have been holding on to this little gem of a wedding video. You’re going to LOVE this boho-chic Sanibel Island beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort.
