Catching up on a backlog of events that we would love to share with you!
Amanda & Shay are a perfect example that timing is everything. They had met while working together at a restaurant, dated for a few years and spent a few years apart before reconnecting. And as Amanda put it, “now here we are!” Sometimes life brings us back to that perfect person, that might have arrived a bit too early the first time around.
Together with their closest family and friends, Amanda & Shay exchanged vows on the Tulemar Beach while enjoying their stay at Buena Vista Villas. They filled the time surrounding their wedding with adventures and exploration, and plenty of monkey spottings!
Many thanks to El Velo Photography for capturing the day in both photo & video. Coordination & design Meghan Cox, Our Costa Rica Wedding. Delicious cake from Mariposa Pastry. Stylos y Flores created the beautiful flowers, and Costa Mesa provided rentals.
We’re sharing a Friday Blooms section with our sister company, Mil Besos, to deliver some flower inspiration to your screen every week. We’ll start with the fresh brunch, in a wild flower style. Design by our very own Cata, and bouquet from Stylos y Flores for our Mil Besos bride Terra.
Addi & Steve traveled from Michigan to be married in an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica, with the goal of focusing on each other, their love and commitment, and avoiding a big stressful day.
In chatting with Meghan, they zoomed in on Tamarindo as the right destination, allowing them to fit in surf lessons and plenty of beach time, while they relaxed in the days leading up to their wedding ceremony.
With a ceremony in May comes the risk of showers, but the benefit of more privacy on the beach. Addi & Steve lucked out in both departments, with having clear skies and a secluded beach.
One thing that our coordinator Sol and photographer Adri noticed right away was how at ease Addi and Steve were, how relaxed and comfortable with each other, and so completely in love!
Addi certainly was a gorgeous bride with a non-tradional color for her dress, some bling in her earrings, and a gorgeous bouquet. We hope you enjoy a glimpse of their day below.
Congrats Addi & Steve!!
Reminiscing today about a gorgeous wedding earlier this year, at Buena Vista Luxury Villas in Manuel Antonio. Danielle & Jonah’s guests enjoyed an intimate dinner with an acoustic trio for entertainment and ocean waves hitting the beach just steps away.
Nell & Brian’s gorgeous day featured on Love + Wander blog!
You Guys! We have something a bit different that we are excited to share with you today.
Have you ever wondered exactly what it is that we do on your wedding day?
Check out this video to follow our lead planner, Meghan Cox, Behind the Scenes during one of our favorite 2014 events.
Many thanks to an amazing bride & groom, Nell & Brian, as well as to the amazing vendors that made the day come together so perfectly: Renascent Photography, El Velo Photography & Video, Artflower, Laura Ulloa, Joshua Wilson, Langosta Beach Club, Victoria Zoch, and of course our fab day-of support team at Our Costa Rica Wedding!
Just a shot of a gorgeous table during set up to brighten your day! Still to go: place cards and straightening the succulents. After that – showtime!
Thank you to Artflower for the beautiful flowers and Renee at Renascent Photography for the beautiful shots!
Traveling from Switzerland and Scotland, Paul and Belen were looking for a luxurious elopement ceremony in Costa Rica.
They enjoyed the simple sophistication of Arenal Nayara with stunning views of the Arenal Volcano, the cozy cloud forest mountain lodge El Establo, and the beautiful 5 Star Arenas del Mar Beachfront & Rainforest Resort in Manuel Antonio. It was during their stay at Arenas del Mar that Paul and Belen exchanged vows on the beach. I love Paul’s kilt and socks, along with Belen’s classic look. The white phalaenopsis orchids were in keeping with the earthy tones that were captured in the photos… the white, brown, green, and blue/gray of the sky and water.
There are many reasons Arenas del Mar makes for a great wedding site for a wedding in Costa Rica but one I love for elopements is that they will prepare an intimate dinner for two in a location of your choosing – in your suite, on the beach, or in their oceanside restaurant. What a sweet way to celebrate your marriage!
Congratulations Paul and Belen!
And thank you Kevin Heslin for the lovely photos of this Costa Rica Wedding! I am particularly smitten with the photo of Paul & Belen sitting on the rocks.
