MattSteevesPhotographyCasaYbelSanibel_0068

Linda and Dave like to have a little fun in life, you can see that from their wedding photos. Their funky style definitely came through in the personalized touches at their ceremony and reception. Guests were never bored, the abundance of self serve candy machines, a photo booth with endless props and a scavenger hunt kept guests entertained. The reception, in Casa Ybel’s Waterfront Room, featured a elegant plated dinner and a host of sweet treats for dessert. We can’t forget to mention the unique favors, each guest took home a personalized Lego figure, such a fun idea!

{ Ally + Chad } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

 

EBP0018
If it wasn’t for the gorgeous bride, the florals from this intimate beach wedding might have been the show stopper of the day. With bright blue skies and a few clouds drifting in the background, the floral arch at their beach ceremony framed the happy couple as they said their I Do’s. Bright tropical colors accentuated the arch, Ally’s bouquet and the hand painted wedding cake. Casa Ybel’s patio venue was the perfect location for the intimate wedding reception. It was a stunning sunset on the beach that somehow perfectly matched the couple’s wedding color scheme.

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

Casa-Ybel-Wedding(18)

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.

Radiant Sunset Ceremony { Sara + Scott } Casa Ybel Resort – Sanibel Island

0337Cukras

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.
