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?
Casa Ybel Resort in Sanibel Island, Florida, is a popular choice for New York wedding couples. Yuyu and Dan decided to escape the busy NYC scene for a laid back, island style soiree.

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.
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. When they decided to tie the knot, they didn’t have to look much further than their own backyard for the perfect beach wedding location. Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel was their choice for a celebration on the sand and a tented reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Guests at Laura and Brian’s ceremony and following reception were treated to the complete wedding day celebration. After a champagne welcome and sweet ceremony on the beach, guests made their way to the tented back lawn. A variety of passed appetizers, hand crafted cocktails and tropical tunes from Wiley Entertainment were waiting to be enjoyed. After dinner and dancing the party moved into Thistle Lodge’s bar, snacks and drinks ready for guests to take a break from dancing the night away.
These are some of our favorite photos, those last few moments of quiet before the whirlwind begins. The bride reflecting on the importance of this day, her husband to-be waiting for her, and all of the friends and family who have come to witness their declaration of love.
Dede and Charlie said their I Do’s a year ago on the lush green lawn at Casa Ybel and it’s one of those weddings we talk about still. The details were simple yet spectacular under the tent. Bouquets of white lilies were a stunning contrast against the bridesmaids navy dresses. Krista from Impressions Photography did an amazing job incorporating the landscape of Casa Ybel into the story of the couples wedding day, photos we’re still ooh-ing and ahh-ing over.
