Nautical Tented Wedding – Casa Ybel Resort, Sanibel Island { Danielle + Matt }


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.

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.
