Four Winds Weddings Event by Costa Vida Photography

Just in time for the weekend, we hope you enjoy the incredible design talents of Four Winds Weddings captured perfectly by Costa Vida Photography. From Kirsten, the owner and creative director:

After our first phone conversation with Jennifer we knew this event was going to be anything but ordinary. Jennifer described her vision of more of an over-the-top dinner party, rather than a typical wedding. Design movement with purpose, guests enjoyment and interactivity, as well as floral decor were of utmost importance to this couple.

With their guests entertainment of the senses in mind all the way throughout the planning process, we came up with a decadent 5 course menu, classy, custom built games (*that could be played in designer heels), multiple ways to infuse firelight, abundant floral designs, and personalized signage around every corner.

When guests arrived at the wedding each guest received a personal boutonniere or corsage, so that they all felt like VIP guests. Almost every hour of the evening there was a new surprise that kept the guests mingling and wondering what was next. This continued throughout the night right up until guests filled up their to-go dessert boxes with a selection of 10 bite-size works of pure confection art.
