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.
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.

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.
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.
