Casa Ybel Destination Weddings

Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island, FL is extremely fortunate to have the ability to host many weddings and other events each year at our beautiful resort!  Twenty-three acres of beachfront  property and pristinely landscaped lawn areas, allow us the opportunity to hold multiple functions in one weekend while still keeping each event private and special.
Anna-Marie and Tim's big day began with a breathtaking ceremony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, followed by the cocktail reception on our covered patio, and dinner reception in our
amazing Waterfront Dining Room.   

 The Couple took part in our quaint sand ceremony to mark the unity
of their two lives coming together to form one. 

 The Tables were covered with white linens with stunning centerpieces by one of our preferred florist on our vendor lists "Floral Artistry".  http://www.floralartistryofsanibel.com/

The guests lounged in the cocktail area nibbling on butler passed hors d' Oeuvres while enjoying the tropical sounds of Danny Morgan and his band with both acoustic guitar and steels drums. http://www.dannymorgan.com/ as our newlyweds snuck off to the beach for photos. 

Anna-Marie's father was very touching with his speech to his daughter and new son-in-law.  He had the entire room in tears as he remembered each and every milestone event of her childhood. 

Our bride and groom had and opportunity for some quiet time together and the pleasure of enjoying our amazing sunsets on our sandy beaches. 

These amazing photos were provide from one of our preferred photographers, Audrey Snow,
with Audrey Snow Photography, http://www.audreysnowphotography.com/

This was such a magical evening with picture perfect weather and surroundings. 
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. McKernan!!! We wish you a life filled with happiness.
