Small weddings are huge on Sanibel Island and Casa Ybel Resort is the choice location for a sandy beach ceremony and private reception space for weddings small and large. Jamie and Hunter’s intimate beach wedding was both simple and elegant. Sanibel Island wedding photographer, Impressions Photography, timelessly caught the event on film.
Day 2 of our two part series from the creative team of Florida wedding vendors turns up the dial in such a joyful way! If you missed Day 1, be sure to check it out here! Inspired by the rich vibrant hues in Connie Duglin Linens swatch book, the team brought to life a rainbow inspired palette of turquoise, yellow & fuchsia as imagined into a 1940′s style pop up soda shoppe! The beauty to this playful façade, handcrafted by Florida wedding planner CocoLuna Events, is how wonderfully interactive that it is from the ability to nip behind and into the store window to the flower box out front filled with cascading greens by Floral Artistry. A sweetheart low boy table was erected out front for cocktails post ceremony, dressed in the bold linens from Connie Duglin’s collection while guests were served…. handcrafted sodas in matching hues of course! The rest is in the details from Anna & Kerry’s gorgeous retro prep style to their utterly unstoppable smiles & laughter. Sometimes such bold hues can be difficult to work with, but this imaginative crew crafted a uniquely whimsical & playful world that it is so hard not to get swept right along with this sweet little Florida wedding!
We recently posted photos from Vivian and Scott’s incredible Sanibel Island wedding at Casa Ybel Resort. We can’t get enough of this tent wedding! On the day of their wedding, it rained all morning and the winds were unusually high, but moments before the ceremony was slated to begin, the rain subsided. This video from MVD really captured the beauty of this couple.
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?
Fred & Jennifer’s tented beach wedding at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island was one for the ages! Hunter Ryan Photo really captured the spirit of these two and their fun-loving wedding guests. Some of our favorite features: the wine ceremony, the seashell escort cards, the suckling pig (Fred’s favorite, for sure!), the long dinner tables, Jennifer’s wardrobe change into a gold sequin designer gown and the photo booth shenanigans. This much fun couldn’t possibly have been contained indoors. A tent reception on our grassy lawn overlooking the beach was the perfect setting for such a perfect evening.
This was a fun Casa Ybel Resort wedding for the friends and family of this couple from Staten Island. It was a destination wedding for most of the family and friends, Kyle and Courtney moved to the Fort Myers area just weeks before hurricane Sandy. Most of their old neigborhood was affected by the huge storm that summer. The ceremony was on the beach for their Casa Ybel Resort Wedding.
After Kyle and Courtney’s Casa Ybel Resort wedding ceremony, the guests walked to the tented lawn. They enjoyed cocktails and music while we continued photographing the families and bridal party. When we finished the group photographs, we had some time for the bride and groom to walk the beach. Courtney’s gown looked great as the wind picked up the train while they walked along the Casa Ybel Resort Beach. The cool evening breeze flowed through this tent wedding with music, candlelight and dinner throughout the wedding. Later in the evening, the party continued in the Waterfront Room, upstairs at the Thistle Lodge Restaurant. Shown here are some of my favorite photographs that we created at this Casa Ybel Resort Wedding. This Sanibel Island resort is well-known for destination weddings.
