Classic Wedding Style Meets Beach Chic on Sanibel Island

impressions-photography(47)

There is a timelessness to the ocean.  It is never quite the same, but it’s always there.  It’s simple appearance belies it’s complexity.  The ocean has long been a symbol for love.  Sophia and Arnold’s beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island was filled with elements of the sea (and love).  Her gown was classic yet incredibly stunning. The soft touches of blush in the bridesmaid gowns were elegant and sophisticated.  And yet, there in the subtle details, the programs, the cake, were elements of the sea.  Elements as timeless as love itself.

A Sanibel Wedding Nature Lovers Must See

sanibel-wedding-Photographer(84)

Sanibel Island is one of Florida’s most natural islands.  Conservation of the local flora and fauna is extremely important to the residents and visitors.  This connection to nature is one of many reasons couples choose the island for destination weddings.  Danielle and Dan’s wedding at Casa Ybel Resort was filled with nods to nature.  An escort card display filled with sand from the beach, pieces of driftwood adorning the tables, and all outdoors on the ocean front lawn gave wedding guests a sense of place.
