Sonia and Blair arrived from Phoenix AZ for their Sanibel beach wedding at the Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island. Their family arrived from different parts of the world along with friends from university and work. The wedding was on the lawn in front of the Thistle Lodge, facing the Gulf of Mexico. After the beach wedding ceremony, we made a few photographs of all the guests before they went to the Waterfront Dining Room in the Thistle Lodge. While the guests enjoyed cocktails served by the Thistle Lodge staff, the families and bridal party were photographed on the beach. While waiting for their photographs, the bridal party were picking up shells from the Sanibel beach. Sanibel is known for it’s abundance of sea shells. Frommer’s named Sanibel Island as one of the best beaches in the world. After the beach wedding photography, the bridal party went in for a celebration dinner with their family and friends. They danced and cut the cake before the evening was through. Music was provided by Ron. Shown here are some of my favorite images we created of this Sanibel beach wedding.
