Sanibel Island is a quiet and romantic beach destination that is so attractive for weddings big and small. Toni and Michael brought their closest family and friends from Iowa to the historic Casa Ybel Resort for their intimate Sanibel beach wedding.
Having an intimate beach wedding doesn’t mean it has to be casual. Heather and Jeff’s small ceremony was followed by an elegant wedding dinner in the Waterfront Room at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island. Weddings with a short guest list leave room in the budget for spectacular flowers and Badgley Mischka shoes! Hunter Ryan Photo captured the romance of this small elegant beach wedding and the results are dreamy garden like images that make you rethink how a Florida wedding should look.
Wedding couples flock from all over the country to Casa Ybel Resort to celebrate their love. One of the gems is our Back Lawn overlooking the sea. Tent weddings on this Gulf view lawn are the epitome of timeless elegance. Chicago couple, Shannon and Andrew, combined white and ivory with touches of silver and seafoam for a color palette that was simply stunning. Florida wedding planner, Courtney Gabelbauer of Fab Chic Weddings, pulled this breathtaking oceanfront event together with finesse. The floral chandeliers and white dance floor took this tented beach wedding over the top.
Sure, Casa Ybel has a beautiful shell strewn beach, but you don’t have to get sand in your shoes to get married here. Erica & Erik opted for a ceremony on our grassy lawn overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and a reception on our Poolside Patio for a nautical style wedding. Of course, who can resist sunset photos on the beach?
