Boho Chic Beach Ceremony { Raquel + Gregory } Sanibel Island – Casa Ybel Resort

BohoBeachArch

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.

Published! Front Cover of Times of the Islands Wedding Edition

Nick Adams Photography scored the front cover of Times of the Islands Wedding Edition with a photo from a Casa Ybel wedding!  We are so proud to share this story directly from Nick’s Blog:

Times of the Island magazine cover-Nick Adams Photography
Wedding Magazine Cover

I was delighted to find out that I was chosen for the Times of The Islands Wedding magazine cover.

Picky and Sarah were the Bride and Groom. They got married at the beautiful Casa Ybel Resort located here on Sanibel Island.

When I asked Pikey how they met and she shared: “We both work in the car business, Pikey’s family owns a dealership and my family owns a car auction. He had been coming to the auction for many years. He says I always looked at him, but in reality it was always him looking over at me, and he is such a wuss one time a co-worker of his asked me for my number for Pikey. I gave it to him and he called me and the rest is history.” A great and unique story. I also asked Sarah to share her wedding plans and what she thought would make their event unique, this is what she said, “We love Sanibel Island, so we wanted to be on the grass but right beside the water. We wanted the island theme for our close family and friends, it was beautiful, classy, but most of all fun.”  she added: Steve played beautiful music, (referring to Steve Farst, a phenomenal local musician) the food was delicious. Everyone there was beautiful.

I could not have done it without Sarah and Pikey. A terrific couple. Sarah had put a lot of planning into this wedding (along with the amazing, Tori Weatherford, of Casa Ybel Resort) and it showed.  They chose to have their ceremony on the Lawn, followed by a tented reception located right next to the ceremony site.

Casa Ybel Resort is one of the few places on the Islands that can accommodate a tented venue at a beach wedding. If you can time it right, with the weather, there is no better way to have a reception. Fall and spring are typically the best times, the temperature is normally in the 70’s with low humidity. The lawn area at Casa Ybel is made up of Bermuda grass, which is normally reserved for golf courses here in Florida. Not a big deal you think? Well… it kinda is. It takes a lot more effort to look after than the usual St Augustine variety. Bermuda grass is so soft, it is really fine, it feels great on your feet. St Augustine looks very nice but it has huge blades and is more like a thick mat of grass, not as soft. And as they say: ‘it’s all in the details’

You can see in the picture below that Sarah and Pikey opted to have the sides of the tent rolled up which is a great idea as it lets the breeze flow through. This particular tent is really well designed (this one is owned by the resort). Should the wind pick up or the temperature suddenly drop the sides of the tent can be dropped to the ground in a matter of minutes.

I digress!

Florida Beach Destination Wedding, Sanibel Island { Claire + Kaylan }

MSP-ROGO-538

Destination weddings are appealing to people who love the simple beautiful things in life.  Things like soft sand between your toes, gentle Gulf breezes and the sounds of the waves lapping the shore.  Claire and Kaylan celebrated their beautiful destination wedding in such a setting when they tied the knot on the beach at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island.

Romantic Island Wedding – Sanibel, FL { Chelsea + Brady }

CBW-1322

Tropical islands are full of romantic notions.  Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort is the epitome of romantic locales which might explain it’s popularity for Florida destination weddings.  Chelsea and Brady didn’t have far to go when they crossed the state and left the hustle and bustle of Fort Lauderdale behind for a slower, more relaxed, more romantic pace on Sanibel Island.
