{ Ally + Chad } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

 

EBP0018
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.

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.

Intimate Backlawn Ceremony { Kirsten + Ian } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

Casa Ybel Set Free Photography -1310

Hues of peach and gold accents gave a romantic touch to Kirsten and Ian’s wedding day. Libby’s Flowers brought in fresh greenery to accent the soft elegance in the rose bouquets and centerpieces. The Groom’s bowtie, Mom’s elegant dress, the welcome bags, all boasted shades of pink.  Last but certainly not least was one last touch of “peach”, the signature drink. A peach mojito made to order for guests at the reception fit right into the theme.

Pure Elegance Under the Tent { Dede + Charlie } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

Casa-Ybel-Wedding(18)

These are some of our favorite photos, those last few moments of quiet before the whirlwind begins. The bride reflecting on the importance of this day, her husband to-be waiting for her, and all of the friends and family who have come to witness their declaration of love.

Dede and Charlie said their I Do’s a year ago on the lush green lawn at Casa Ybel and it’s one of those weddings we talk about still. The details were simple yet spectacular under the tent. Bouquets of white lilies were a stunning contrast against the bridesmaids navy dresses. Krista from Impressions Photography did an amazing job incorporating the landscape of Casa Ybel into the story of the couples wedding day, photos we’re still ooh-ing and ahh-ing over.
