Casa Ybel Resort Waterfront Wedding 2/28/09

Casa Ybel Resort would like to congratulate it's newest happily married couple, Mr. and Mrs. Dellagnolo!

Boris and Katie were married at a church in Fort Myers, and later held their stunning reception at our Casa Ybel Resort Saturday, February 28, 2009. They were a very sweet couple, and we had a wonderful time hosting their event. Boris and Katie began their reception by hosting an hour long cocktail at the outdoor terrace of our Thistle Lodge Beachfront Restaurant. The guests enjoyed butler passed appetizers with their cocktails, while the bride and groom took amazing pictures on the beach around sunset. The guests were then escorted into the Waterfront Dining Room, where they were treated to quite a surprising first dance! The bride changed out of her formal church gown, and into a more informal (but equally stunning) slip dress. The bride and groom then proceeded to shock everyone by performing a full hip-hop first dance, complete with top hats and canes!

The reception room was extremely elegant, with the chairs wrapped in ivory satin, and the tables adorned with ivory satin linen and topped with ice blue organza.

The cake, created by Masons Bakery, was a beautifully prepared three tier square cake adorned with a lovely swirl design in the frosting, a light blue ribbon and later garnished with white chocolate edible calla lilies, to tie in the centerpiece flowers.

The centerpieces from Floral Artistry of Sanibel, were made with light blue and ivory hydrangea, as well as an assortment of ivory roses and calla lilies. The centerpieces were completed with tall glass floating candle holders, of various heights to provide dimension to the table. The reception was a heart warming family affair, complete with a slide show of the family throughout the years, and pictures of the bride and groom as children holding hands!

This was truly a family occasion, and a love story 15 years in the making. Casa Ybel Resort thanks the Campbell and Dellagnolo families for sharing this very special occasion with us!
