Four Winds Team Member Kirsten

Kirsten Juntunen | Co-Founder & Creative Director

As a child of two artists, Kirsten was encouraged to use her creative mind from an early age. Fortunately for her, she grew up with all the artistic supplies a girl could ever want. It was at the ripe young age of 9 that Kirsten decided that her preferred medium for expression was floral design.

In the 40 years that her family has owned their property in Washington State, they have transformed it from a stump ridden hill to a perfectly manicured 6 acre garden with a plethora of flora and fauna. Instead of having a lemonade stand out front of her house, Kirsten had a flower stand where she would sell petite bouquets.

She continued floral design throughout University and realized that her dream was to create a business where she was able to continue to challenge herself creatively while crafting designs for those looking to be wed in Costa Rica.

Jonathan Cooley | Co-Founder & Photographer

As a visual person, Jonathan has always been drawn to photography. In University, while pursuing his degree in Marketing, Jonathan learned how inner-connected powerful imagery was with business. It was at this time that he realized how coveted creative ideas and design were. In 2007, He and his wife Kirsten, crafted Four Winds Weddings & Events. The business was created with the goal of fulfilling their creative ambitions while also providing a top notch service for other couples.

Fast forward 6 years, and their boutique company has blossomed into a creative/planning resource for couples from around the world. Everyday is new and different. They are constantly evolving and adapting to the changing planning environment in Costa Rica. One thing that remains the same is their commitment to creating and executing quality events with style and finesse.
