Wood + Sand + Style = Chic Rustic Beach Wedding on Sanibel Island

20181104_Wedding_NaveKristek_Raw_409_vendor

Rustic weddings are still in!  Couples are freshening up the look with soft touches that feel romantic and sophisticated while keeping the simple charm.  Megan and Kevin said no thanks to the barn and took to the ocean instead in this charming Sanibel Island wedding at Casa Ybel Resort.  Long wooden tables were swathed in billowy soft blush chiffon, romantic pastel blooms and candles as far as the eye could see.

A Sanibel Wedding Nature Lovers Must See

sanibel-wedding-Photographer(84)

Sanibel Island is one of Florida’s most natural islands.  Conservation of the local flora and fauna is extremely important to the residents and visitors.  This connection to nature is one of many reasons couples choose the island for destination weddings.  Danielle and Dan’s wedding at Casa Ybel Resort was filled with nods to nature.  An escort card display filled with sand from the beach, pieces of driftwood adorning the tables, and all outdoors on the ocean front lawn gave wedding guests a sense of place.

Lush greenery with touches of tropical fruits adorn the tables for a Florida wedding with an authentic island vibe styled by the talented Elleson Events.  The circular arch of big green leaves sets the tone at the beach side ceremony and later frames the couple as they dine on the ocean front lawn at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island.

Outdoor Garden Wedding – Sanibel Island, FL { Haley + Eyad }

Haley&Eyad-861

Haley and Eyad’s outdoor wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island was reminiscent of an old English Garden.  Only it was in Florida. On the beach.  And it was unbelievably gorgeous.  With some design help from Fabulously Chic Weddings and a lot of hard work from Haley’s mom, this wedding was perfectly sweet, romantic and timeless.

The Hawaiian leis and tropical centerpieces really made Eliza and Andrew’s Florida beach wedding beautiful, but it was the truly the people they had around them that made the day so special.  Photographer Hannah Glogower expertly captured the incredibly fun vibe of this Sanibel Island wedding and all the love that surrounded Eliza and Andrew.

Enchanted Tropical Beach Wedding – Casa Ybel Resort, Sanibel Island { Janine + Marcus }

casa-ybel-wedding-foto-bohemia_0175

It was tropical, yet whimsical.  It’s hard to explain just what it was about Janine and Marcus’s beach wedding that made it so enchanting.  Perhaps the lush floral spheres lining their sandy aisle or the oversized tropical leaves adorning their arch.  Perhaps it was just the sweet sounds of the ocean lapping the beach and the gentle seabreeze that put everyone in the mood for celebrating.  Perhaps it was Janine and Marcus.  Their Sanibel wedding reception kicked off on Casa Ybel’s ocean front lawn and continued through the night with dinner and dancing in the elegant fabric-lined outdoor tent.

Chic Tropical Tent Wedding on Sanibel Island { Jennifer + Jeffrey }

EBP021

Pineapples.  We love Jennifer & Jeffery’s tropical design and all the pineapples they included in the décor.  Their super tropical beach wedding at Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort started off with toes in the sand and continued through the night on the oceanfront lawn.  The tented reception was decked out with brightly colored florals, tropical greenery and, yep, pineapples.  Did we mention how much we love the pineapples?
