Oh, that morning light! If you’ve never taken a morning walk along the ocean, I recommend putting it on your vacation to-do list. Nikki and Ben wanted to share that experience with their guests – the calmly lapping waters, the gentle morning sun and the sense that this day could last forever. After their beach wedding, festivities continued with brunch on Casa Ybel Resort’s Patio where guests sipped mimosas and noshed on eggs benny. When it was all over, Nikki and Ben took an afternoon swim on what would end up being a day that has indeed lasted forever.
Coco Luna Events does it again! Lauren and Philip imagined an ocean-side wedding with a bohemian flair. With a watercolor palette of purples and accents in metallic rose gold and rustic wood, this Sanibel Island wedding was both boho and sophisticated.
Danielle and Matt are Floridians – the beach is their backyard. They chose Casa Ybel Resort for their Sanibel Island wedding for the lush lawns and water views – not for the sand. Their nautical themed wedding put a sophisticated twist on the seaside wedding. With the ceremony and tented reception on Casa Ybel’s grassy lawns overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, guests were treated to the very best Sanibel Island has to offer.
So many couples come to Florida to get married for the tropical weather, sandy beaches and beautiful flora. Chelsey & Travis’ wedding encompassed all of those wonderful Florida features. Their beach wedding ceremony was decked out with tropical blooms and their tented wedding on Casa Ybel Resort’s oceanfront back lawn glowed with lanterns, burlap and seashells. Chelsey & Travis even made surfboard cookies for wedding favors!
Tracey & Rogelio’s destination wedding at Casa Ybel Resort might just be the most internationally attended events Sanibel Island has ever seen. With an African bride and a Mexican groom, both well-travelled, the guest list spanned the globe, making theirs the ultimate destination wedding.

Boho Glam Beach Wedding at Casa Ybel Resort in Sanibel, FL
The boho glam wedding of Jaime and Nick was an ocean-side Sanibel Island wedding absolutely bursting with sweetness and light. The excitement of the bride and groom were palpable as Jaime walked barefoot down the aisle with her father to the ukulele version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Her bouquet of cascading flowers and ribbons by Hollie Raulerson danced on the wind. She wore a timeless Nicole Miller gown with crystal-covered bodice and airy skirts that looked made for the beach. Swarovski beaded barefoot sandals made the bohemian look perfection. Bright blue sky and fluffy clouds overhead, the couple swore to love one another forever with heartfelt personalized vows beneath a windswept flower-draped arbor. A cocktail commenced in a whimsical setting of high-low tables and chairs draped in sequin linens of blush and lavender. Elleson Events took bohemian chic to a new level with a reception tent that boasted both round and farm-style tables covered in antique candlesticks, mismatched colored glasses, golden flatware and bursting, fragrant flower arrangements, all of it in exotic shades of purple, pink, cream, yellow and orange. Flower-draped swings invited guests to relax and smile. Sparkling chandeliers added a touch of glam. It was a delicious feast for the eyes. And speaking of feasting, guests enjoyed an incredible array of scrumptious butler-passed hors d’oeuvres before digging into an elegant meal planned by the groom and a wedding cake by Lady Cakes. DJ Ceron played all the right tunes to get guests of all ages onto the dance floor long after sunset. Hunter Ryan Photo captured every moment in their dreamy light-filled style.
Joy and Ryan hailed all the way from Chicago to celebrate their marriage on Sanibel Island at Casa Ybel Resort.
