Jenna + Tom's Sophisticated Seaside Soiree

There is nothing quite like this party inspiration to help pass the week. Jenna and Tom, a nurse and police officer from Chicago, had both spent time in Costa Rica, falling in love with the country's natural beauty, wildlife, weather, and people, before choosing it as the location for their wedding.

They each wanted to get married in a remote, warm, and tropical location and throw a party to that their guests would add to the list of all time glamorous evenings in their memory books. 

After the ceremony, held poolside under the beach club terrace, the guests were all surprised by a beautifully choreographed first dance that was pulled off flawlessly thanks to some dance classes Jenna and Tom had taken back in Chicago. Guests also celebrated the new Mr. and Mrs. with a sparkler tunnel that continued into the pool for a little dancing right in the pool shallows.

After many courses of delectable treats and the best tropical drinks one could imagine, the final surprise for guest was a spectacular firework display! 

Jenna & Tom's Wedding Wire Review:

"Planning a wedding from another country is not the easiest. Our biggest fear was that we were not going to be able to find someone that was going to help us carry out our vision. We began planning our wedding a year in advance with a specific vision and style in mind. When we came across Kirsten at FourWindsWeddings, we knew immediately that she was going to deliver us everything we imagined. Besides her amazing style and calm demeanor, her attention to detail went beyond our expectations. 

Utilizing Pinterest and inspiration boards, we exchanged ideas piece by piece. She is excellent at communicating and responded to our emails promptly. We not only hired her for floral design, décor, and
rentals but used her wedding planning package as well. She is worth every single penny. Her flowers were insanely gorgeous, her décor was natural yet glamorous, and design is of the utmost quality. 

Kirsten eased all of our fears and concerns with her detail oriented and thorough personality. She continuously reassured us that our wedding would be beautiful. She worked well with our hotel wedding planner to come up with the logistics and timeline. She took every responsibility out of our hands and treated our wedding like if it were her own. She is phenomenal. Hiring her was the best decision we made for our wedding. Her designs blew us away and we almost cried when we saw the final setup. Along with her husband who was our photographer (Costa Vida Photography), their team helped make our dream wedding become a reality. If you are planning on having your wedding in Costa Rica, it would do you a great service to call Four Winds and have Kirsten and her team put together your dream wedding.
