Radiant Sunset Ceremony { Sara + Scott } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

0337Cukras

A blanket of shells cover the beach in front of Casa Ybel and the colors of sunset reflected in the gulf water and in the clouds. This is exactly what Sara and Scott imagined when they were planning their dream Florida wedding. A simple bouquet of greenery on the arch made for a perfect backdrop on the beach as the Bride and Groom said their I Do’s. Dinner on the patio at Thistle Lodge was intimate and romantic. Guests were treated to Grilled Mahi Mahi with fresh pineapple salsa and perfectly grilled Filet Mignon. Of course to top the evening off there was a stunning three-tiered cake for guests with a sweet tooth to enjoy.

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.
