Tracy and Jeff got married at the Playa Prieta Beach Club in the fabulous Peninsula Papagayo development. With their purple and green florals, and laid back chic styling, this wedding was our first wedding to be featured on Style Me Pretty!
don’t even know where to start. I just loved working with Tracy & Jeff and with their parents. I have known Jeff’s parents for a while, and I was very excited when they asked me to help them plan Jeff & Tracy’s Costa Rica wedding. It was truly a wedding weekend with 3 days of events (a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, and the grand finale, a great wedding at the beautiful Playa Prieta Beach Club in Peninsula Papagayo located in Guanacaste.
I will be sharing some photos (not pro, taken by me!) of the rehearsal dinner in the near future, but I will be sharing a few lovely photos of the wedding itself on this post. To be honest, I had a hard time picking the photographs for this post (if it were up to me, I would have posted about 100!).
Although for a moment, I was sure it would rain, we had one of the loveliest November afternoons on the wedding day. The guests arrived and were ushered to the ceremony site, below the trees in front of the ocean, with a lovely view of the secluded Playa Prieta. Jeff walked in with his parents and Tracy followed soon after with hers. She decided to brave the sandy floor (as I would have) and wear the gorgeous dark purple heels she chose for her big day for the ceremony!!!
After the ceremony, guests had cocktails in the cocktail bar and by the beach, enjoying a lovely “end-of-the-green-season” sunset, filled with color. The reception was held poolside at the exclusive Playa Prieta Beach Club, with guests enjoying a delicious dinner, and jazzy music by Los Mojitos.
Tracy gave us a lot of freedom with the design, and only asked us to incorporate purple in the florals, and make them lovely, yet simple, to showcase the natural surroundings at the venue. Roberta at Artflower absolutely nailed it, with simple, sophisticated green and purple floral arrangements that really popped without being over the top.
The three tier wedding cake by the ever talented Victoria Zoch, decorated with natural dark purple orchids and succulents was stunning, and of course, delicious.
After dinner, guests danced the night away and the evening flew by, with everyone enjoying themselves as much as Tracy, Jeff and their families wanted them to!
