Vintage Seaside Wedding on Sanibel Island { Maggie + Chris } – Casa Ybel Resort

our-wedding-6994Casa Ybel Resort‘s history dates back to the 1880’s.  It’s been a haven for lovers since the founder’s daughter, Georgia, married a guest of the inn.  It’s no surprise that couples from all over the world flock to Sanibel Island to get married on the shores of Casa Ybel Resort and dine in the historic Thistle Lodge, a replica of the Victorian manor built for Georgia and her husband as a wedding gift.

It was the historic feature that made Casa Ybel Resort the perfect fit for Chris and Maggie’s vintage infused beach wedding.  With a distinct 1930’s style, guests enjoyed music played on an old phonograph (an invention of Thomas Edison – one of Casa Ybel’s most famous guests), sat at tables adorned with simple timeless florals and even snapped photos sitting on a 1930’s inspired half moon (designed by the bride’s father).

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

enc-bienkowski-596

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.
