Stunning Casa Ybel Weddings

What a wonderful month it has been so far!
Casa Ybel Resort's wedding department kicked off it's Fall Season on October 3rd, with three intimate and breathtaking weddings! A deep, and heartfelt


goes out to our newest happily married couples:

Mr. and Mrs. Crouch

Mr. and Mrs. Brey

Mr. and Mrs. McCain

I cannot think of a more perfect start to a busy Fall season than getting to work with these couples who are so madly in love and happy, it gives me the greatest joy, and reminds me of just how much I love my job!

We were fortunate enough to have the very talented, and always super fun to work with, Jesse Netsch, share some of his wonderful work with us.

Jesse shot the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Brey, who held an intimate, and deeply romantic wedding at our resort, with 8 of their closest family and friends.The bride wore the most beautiful gown, which was designed and hand made by her very own mother.

Pastor Patty Miller from Custom Ceremonies for All Occasions officiated the ceremony, which was custom written for the bride and groom. The bride and groom shared the vows they wrote themselves during their custom ceremony, for an even more personal touch. .

They started with an adorable tropically decorated ceremony at our East Beach location, followed by the most PERFECT sunset imaginable!

The group then moved inside, to our Gazebo Room, where they were treated to a wonderful plated dinner consisting of Broiled Lobster Tail and Grilled Filet of Beef with Yucca Potato Puree and Twin Sauces.

The evening was topped off with an adorable seashell wedding cake from Masons Bakery, and lots of champagne and tropical cocktails!

It was such a magical night for all of our happy couples, and it was a joy to host these amazing events! Please enjoy some more photography below from the Brey wedding, as shot by the amazing Jesse Netsch. There were so many amazing shots to choose from. I narrowed them down the best I could, and made two nice mosaics for easy viewing (and load time).
