If it wasn’t for the gorgeous bride, the florals from this intimate beach wedding might have been the show stopper of the day. With bright blue skies and a few clouds drifting in the background, the floral arch at their beach ceremony framed the happy couple as they said their I Do’s. Bright tropical colors accentuated the arch, Ally’s bouquet and the hand painted wedding cake. Casa Ybel’s patio venue was the perfect location for the intimate wedding reception. It was a stunning sunset on the beach that somehow perfectly matched the couple’s wedding color scheme.
Raquel and Greg were such a fun couple to work with, their love and excitement on wedding day obviously shines here. Lush greenery accents could be found everywhere; the arch on the beach, the sweetheart table, and Raquel’s stunning flower crown. Casa Ybel’s white sandy beach hosted the intimate ceremony and guests were wined and dined on Thistle Lodge’s patio. The grounds through out Casa Ybel offered some amazing spots for Raquel and Greg’s first look photos and the Gulf of Mexico proved a stunning backdrop for sunset beach photos.
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.
One of the many benefits to hiring a photographer from your venue’s Preferred List is that you’re hiring someone who is very familiar with the property. When Stephanie & Joe hired Nick Adams Photography for their intimate beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Florida’s Sanibel Island, they knew they could relax and let Nick guide them to the best locations at the right time of day. The result – incredible images and an extremely happy couple.
When Becky and Matt told us that they hired Kelly McWilliams to plan their Sanibel Island beach wedding, we knew that it would be elegant and sophisticated – because that’s what Kelly does. From the romantic florals on the beach, to the cozy lounge furniture on the tented lawn, this wedding was luxurious down to the last detail.
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!
Chelsey & Travis’s tropical wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island was the perfect backdrop to showcase their love. With a beach ceremony and a tented reception on Casa Ybel’s Back Lawn, the vibe was relaxed, easy. The natural beauty of Sanibel Island framed the natural beauty of Chelsey and Travis’s love for one another.
If you think that beach weddings are synonymous with casual, you’re wrong. Once more, Courtney Gabelbauer of Fabulously Chic Weddings proves that beach weddings can be the most elegant and glamorous. We already shared Heather and Jim’s wedding video, but the photos are just as gush-worthy. We think you’ll agree that the Waterfront Room at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island is the perfect setting for romantic waterfront wedding receptions.
