When Lindsay and Gordon called us from Europe to plan to their beach wedding on Sanibel Island, we knew this would be an international affair. Guests came from all over the globe to watch Lindsay and Gordon say “I do” on the beach at Casa Ybel Resort. Details of the wedding highlighted the couples many travels together while also carrying a distinct Florida vibe.
Laura and Kevin spend a lot of time on the water. It was only natural for them to choose a wedding location on the beach and deck it out with nautical nods. When the rain came, it didn’t dampen their spirits. The skies cleared and this cheerful couple literally tied the knot on the Sanibel shore line.
Tropical florals in shades of violet enhanced the romantic factor in Alexis & Josh’s Sanibel beach wedding. Their ceremony on the beach at Casa Ybel Resort was breathtaking as the waves of the Gulf of Mexico lapped the shore and a gentle sea breeze filled the air. The sunset was one not to be missed! Vibrant colors painted across the sky made for the perfect portrait backdrop.
Tropical wedding décor is so chic right now! We fell head over heels for Allyson & Chad’s beach wedding palette of bright colors and tropical blooms.

Sanibel Island holds a special place in the hearts of so many, even the locals. That is especially true for Miranda and Jacob, sweethearts who grew up in Fort Myers.

Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel was their choice for a celebration on the sand and a tented reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

Guests were met with flutes of bubbling champagne on the beach, billowy white clouds scattered throughout the blue skies over the beach, and strains of ukulele music in the wind.

Beautifully plated grilled filet mignon and butter poached lobster tails were followed by Lady Cakes delicious lemon buttercream filled cake.
