Real Costa Rica Weddings / Janet & Pablo at Reserva Conchal Beach Club

I love coincidences. When I first started communicating with Janet, she told us that she was marrying a tico that had been living in the US for a while.  When she told us his name... it just so happened he was one of my dear high school friends (who I hadn't seen since, well, high school I guess!). She of course, didn't know this, so it was actually a treat to not only plan a wedding for someone I knew, but also to get to see so many people I hadn't seen in a while at the wedding!

We truly enjoyed working with Janet & Pablo on the design of their wedding. Janet was set on a large torch ginger bouquet, which was lovely (even though we had to trim it down, as it was quite heavy) which is a rare request. We setup a long table for all 160 guests, and instead of decorating it with flowers, we placed 160 glass cylinders and pillar candles of varying height through the table, which, with the parallel string lights, made the whole setting just glow! A greenery filled ceremony, with lush greens lining the aisle, and perfect weather, just made the beginning of this wonderful night perfect.
