If we had to use one word to describe Karla & Alex’s wedding, it would be FUN. The most important thing about their Sanibel Island wedding weekend was that their guests have fun. They held a tennis tournament and volleyball match the morning of their wedding! We love how laid back these two were. Their beach wedding ceremony and tented back lawn reception were full of joy and laughter. The tropical centerpieces and sand dollar favors were a nod to their Sanibel Island wedding locale.
Casa Ybel Resort in Sanibel Island, Florida, is a popular choice for New York wedding couples. Yuyu and Dan decided to escape the busy NYC scene for a laid back, island style soiree.

A while back, we shared with you Laura and Brian’s beach wedding on Sanibel Island. We didn’t mention the epic welcome party they had the night before on our back lawn. Guests dined on heavy hors d’oeuvres and fun bites like crab cake sliders and flatbread pizzas all while watching the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. A Caribbean band played island tunes and guests mingled among lounge furniture sets and cocktail tables. Laura and Brian even did a little pre-wedding photo shoot on the beach that evening. What a way to welcome everyone to a fun-filled wedding weekend!
Sanibel Island holds a special place in the hearts of so many, even the locals. That is especially true for Miranda and Jacob, sweethearts who grew up in Fort Myers.

Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel was their choice for a celebration on the sand and a tented reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
