Real Costa Rica Wedding by A Brit & A Blonde

From Jessica of A Brit & A Blonde:

Sara & Evan both went to Allegheny College – a small school in Pennsylvania. The first time they really spoke was at a party hosted by Sara’s sorority. A few days later they went out on their first date – dinner and a scary movie. 9 years later they said I do in gorgeous sunny Costa Rica. They had both been to Costa Rica on an adventure vacation and fell in love with it. They wanted to share the amazingness with their friends and family. So they invited 60+ of their nearest and dearest to Manuel Antonio. They chose the Parador hotel for their big day – which has a great mix of modern and luxury with traditional Costa Rica. And had their ceremony on the beach overlooking the ocean. Super rad. Aimee the lead designer at Tropical Occasions wanted to ensure that she reflect Sara & Evan’s vision and personality into the décor and vibe of the day. The mood they were after was Grecian Fairies Bohemian Garden Party. And it came together most beautifully. Those custom napkins that said “Best Day Ever” – they totally got it right. It really was! It was unbelievably perfect for Sara and Evan who really complement each other so well. The evening reception was really magical and with all those lights it truly sparkled.

Real Costa Rica Wedding by Katherine Stinnett Photography

Linda and Michael decided on the ivory-sand beaches of Playa Conchal for their sweet little wedding in Costa Rica. The bride worked with Jaime from Tropical Occasions to create a perfect palette for a beachside destination wedding combining simple wooden elements as well as handmade seaglass-themed menus. A simple burlap runner lined the locally-made wooden tables that were decorated with seashells, lanterns, and handmade wooden boxes of colorful flowers including mums, roses, and succulents. Guests enjoyed a fabulous poolside dinner under the delicate twinkle lights and danced the night away with their closest friends and family.
