Casa Ybel Resort intimate wedding!
They arrived from the midwest for their Casa Ybel Resort intimate wedding-just the two of them-with a Sunday afternoon ceremony. Their beach wedding was on Sanibel Island with a beautiful sky and rain–only in the distance. Rev. Dr. James R. Berger performed the ceremony, he is the Pastor at the Hope United Presbyterian Church in Fort Myers. We all met around 6pm, Lori had her bridal flowers of orchids and we started some pre-ceremony pictures. Dr. Berger is an accomplished guitarist and singer, so he performed with his guitar and sang some popular tunes that fit very well at this Casa Ybel Resort intimate wedding. After some minutes, we then walked to the beach for the ceremony. Lori and Dan stood just a few steps from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico as they said their wedding vows. When the ceremony was over, Dr. Berger played his guitar and sang some additional wedding songs while we completed beach photographs. We all walked back from the beach to sign the marriage license. I then walked the beautiful Casa Ybel property with Lori and Dan to find some additional settings for more photographs to show their intimate wedding setting. Casa Ybel Resort has an expansive beach front for an intimate wedding for two in addition to the large wedding receptions that they serve each weekend. We walked to the boardwalk and continued pictures with golden sea oats as a backdrop as some clouds came over Sanibel Island. The clouds provided a rich tone for a background with the setting sun illuminating their faces. Lori and Dan were a joy to photograph, I could see their love and affection for each other as we made some close-up photographs. After we completed our photographs at this Casa Ybel Resort intimate wedding, Lori and Dan walked to the Thistle Lodge Restaurant for their celebration dinner. Lori and Dan wish to say the following to their friends and family, “Thankful for everyone’s thoughts and prayer…we are AMAZED at what God has done”.
Shown here are some of my favorite photographs we created of Lori and Dan’s Casa Ybel Resort intimate wedding.
