Pure Elegance Under the Tent { Dede + Charlie } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island


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.

Perfect Pastel Waterfront Views { Andria + Robert } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island


The colors of the sky over Sanibel vary each and every day. Somehow on Andria and Robert’s wedding day they were the perfect blues to compliment the color scheme they had chosen.  The Waterfront Room at Casa Ybel was the ideal venue to witness the skies turn from blues to oranges and pinks as the sun set over the gulf. Along with the beautiful views guests were treated to an expansive buffet for dinner. Wanderlust Imagery captured some intimate moments from the ceremony and reception, memories the bride and groom will cherish for years to come.

Birds of a Feather – Sanibel Island Wedding { Laura + Dan }

Connell_Walls_Wed-341Laura and her family have been visiting the shores of Sanibel Island and staying at Casa Ybel Resort for years.  It seemed only natural that Laura & Dan fly all the way from Australia (where they live), guests-in-tow, to this magical little island when they decided to tie the knot.  They skipped the beach for the ceremony and had a lawn wedding overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  We love their sense of humor – from the Australian-American translation guide to their pink flamingos that seemed to show up whenever you least expected.  This is a family that knows how to laugh.  We were honored that they chose Casa Ybel Resort for their destination wedding and we look forward to seeing them year after year.

Also, check out the sunset view from the Waterfront Room!

Tropical Tented Beach Wedding – Sanibel Island, Florida { Helena + Drew }


Helena and Drew wanted to bring their wedding guests to a tropical setting for a spring time getaway.  Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort was the perfect location for their destination wedding.  With sand between their toes and sunshine on their faces, these two exchanged marriage vows on the beach at Casa Ybel as their guests looked on with cold beverages in hand.  Desiring to experience the full beauty of an outdoor beach wedding, Helena and Drew continued the event under a tent on Casa Ybel’s ocean front back lawn where guests danced the night away and enjoyed the coastal breeze from the Gulf of Mexico.

Serene Backlawn Sunset { Katie + Ryan } Sanibel Island – Casa Ybel Resort


Katie and Ryan chose the lush expanse of Casa Ybel’s back lawn for their ceremony, towering palms on each side as they said their I Do’s. The Waterfront Room with views of the sunset hosted dinner and dancing for guests. Their stunning sunset photos are courtesy of Tonya Malay Photography, and of course, mother nature.

Island Escape – Casa Ybel Beach Wedding { Rachel + Jake }


It was brought to our attention recently that we don’t feature Patio receptions enough on here.  Patio receptions are hugely popular at Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel Resort.  Dining outdoors with the safety of the lighted Patio awning is ultra-romantic.  We especially love Rachel & Jake’s wedding from this past winter.
