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.
A blanket of shells cover the beach in front of Casa Ybel and the colors of sunset reflected in the gulf water and in the clouds. This is exactly what Sara and Scott imagined when they were planning their dream Florida wedding. A simple bouquet of greenery on the arch made for a perfect backdrop on the beach as the Bride and Groom said their I Do’s. Dinner on the patio at Thistle Lodge was intimate and romantic. Guests were treated to Grilled Mahi Mahi with fresh pineapple salsa and perfectly grilled Filet Mignon. Of course to top the evening off there was a stunning three-tiered cake for guests with a sweet tooth to enjoy.
Brittany and Michael said I Do on the sandy beaches of Casa Ybel’s property just steps from where their tented reception was held. While the bride and groom took photos on the beach, guests were treated to gourmet passed appetizers and specialty crafted cocktails. Dinner and dancing lasted well into the evening with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico from their seats and even the dance floor.
Julie and BJ brought in colors from the beautiful gulf waters and Florida skies when planning their Sanibel Island dream wedding. Carrie Darling Events made sure no detail was missed with coordinating coral centerpieces, personalized drink coozies, and custom stationary to make sure guests knew all the details for each wedding event. The fun continued late into the night with an after party at Thistle Lodge with late night snacks and cocktails.
The photos from Heather and Patrick’s wedding say it all. The iconic wooden bridge leading onto Casa Ybel’s property provided the stunning backdrop for a post-sunset photoshoot. Libby’s Flowers stood out with deep, bold colors and bright succulents. With rustic touches and deep plum accents this tented reception was simple yet sophisticated, very fitting to the bride and groom’s style.
Jessica and Ian’s wedding was a sweet celebration of their love followed by a night of fun. After an intimate ceremony performed by Rev. Dr. Berger, guests were treated to an evening of memories to last a lifetime. The lush lawn of Casa Ybel was the perfect compliment to their nautical themed reception under the tent.
Meg and Ashley chose the white sandy beaches at Casa Ybel for their intimate wedding ceremony. The sea grass lined shore was the perfect location as they shared their love with close family and friends. Their simple yet elegant style came through in some amazing photos enhanced by the backdrop of Sanibel Island.
