Laura + Marcus | Vintage Tamarindo Wedding

Laura and Marcus are sweet couple who came to us looking for an intimate destination wedding inspired by Laura’s love for all things vintage. Each vase was hand picked by the bride over the months leading up to the wedding. She scoured all of the antique stores in NYC. Since Laura is an accomplished singer, we incorporated sheet music into the floral petal cones and she found these amazing antique trumpet candle holders. All and all, this event came together like a perfectly curated pinterest board. Costa Vida Photography was on site to capture every moment.

Julia and Jacob | Tamarindo Boho Wedding

Sometimes I meet a couple that so perfectly and effortlessly completes one another that it sends chills up my spine. Julia and Jacob were that couple and my team was so proud to be a part of their amazing day.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the day. A big thanks to my husband Jonathan of Costa Vida Photography for his work documenting all of the details of the day in addition to all of the emotions (which were in no short supply).

Liza and Jairo | Nosara Wedding

Liza and Jairo met and fell in love on the beautiful beaches of Nosara, Costa Rica. Jairo and his family are natives of this area and Liza made frequent visits to her family home in the hills overlooking Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada. We helped them plan a rather large event (based on destination wedding standards) of 160 guests.

Prior to the wedding Liza and Jairo had their first look at Liza’s family home. The location couldn’t have been better as their property had a gorgeous tree house style deck. The view was incredible! The ceremony was hosted on Playa Pelada with the reception at a local restaurant. Following the ceremony, guests were asked to make a wish for the newlyweds and send off a sky lantern. After dinner, a proper dance party ensued until the early hours.

Janet & Mike | Tamarindo Elopement

Although, we absolutely love planning the intricate details of a destination wedding, Elopements are equally fun to plan. There is something about the simplicity of an elopement that sets our hearts a swoon. Janet and Mike chose to host their simple elopement while on a family vacation in Costa Rica. Together, with their two lovely daughters, they said their i do’s on the private side of Tamarindo beach. We think that it couldn’t have been more perfect.

Katie & Tony | Santa Teresa Wedding

Every time we work in Santa Teresa is a beautiful adventure. For those not familiar with the area, Santa Teresa is located on a rather remote stretch of coast line on the southernmost area of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Traveling to this area typically involves a ferry ride across the Gulf of Nicoya and 30 minutes rugged dirt road. Just when you think that every bolt is about to shake loose on your vehicle, you roll into this youthful beach town filled with boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants, surfers and yoga enthusiasts. It is the adventure that Katie and Tony were seeking for their wedding location and Santa Teresa certainly delivered. Thanks to Jon of Costa Vida Photography for capturing the day.
