Birds of a Feather – Sanibel Island Wedding { Laura + Dan }

Connell_Walls_Wed-341Laura and her family have been visiting the shores of Sanibel Island and staying at Casa Ybel Resort for years.  It seemed only natural that Laura & Dan fly all the way from Australia (where they live), guests-in-tow, to this magical little island when they decided to tie the knot.  They skipped the beach for the ceremony and had a lawn wedding overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  We love their sense of humor – from the Australian-American translation guide to their pink flamingos that seemed to show up whenever you least expected.  This is a family that knows how to laugh.  We were honored that they chose Casa Ybel Resort for their destination wedding and we look forward to seeing them year after year.

Also, check out the sunset view from the Waterfront Room!

Tropical Tented Beach Wedding – Sanibel Island, Florida { Helena + Drew }

Casa-Ybel-Wedding(117)

Helena and Drew wanted to bring their wedding guests to a tropical setting for a spring time getaway.  Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort was the perfect location for their destination wedding.  With sand between their toes and sunshine on their faces, these two exchanged marriage vows on the beach at Casa Ybel as their guests looked on with cold beverages in hand.  Desiring to experience the full beauty of an outdoor beach wedding, Helena and Drew continued the event under a tent on Casa Ybel’s ocean front back lawn where guests danced the night away and enjoyed the coastal breeze from the Gulf of Mexico.

Island Escape – Casa Ybel Beach Wedding { Rachel + Jake }

Capture-Everyday.com/weddings

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.

Intimate Island Beach Wedding, Casa Ybel Resort { Stephanie + Joe }

Holdmann_CasaYbel045

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.

Ocean Front Wedding Reception & Sanibel Island Tented Wedding { Becky + Matt }

Casa Ybel Wedding Set Free Photography BM-1582

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.

UPDATE: This wedding has been published on Borrowed & Blue.

Sanibel Island Beach Wedding { Marissa + Timothy } – Casa Ybel Resort

00211

Marissa and Timothy’s Sanibel Island beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort was the idyllic destination event.  Saying their vows on the white sand shore of the Gulf of Mexico and celebrating with music and dancing in Casa Ybel’s ocean view Waterfront Room, the couple and their guests were surrounded by sea shells and starfish and fresh flowers, reminding them all along of the scenic beach locale.

Vintage Seaside Wedding on Sanibel Island { Maggie + Chris } – Casa Ybel Resort

our-wedding-6994Casa 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).
