Costa Rica Weddings / Jessi & Troy at Casa Fantastica, Manuel Antonio

One of my favorite views in all of Manuel Antonio is the one from Casa Fantastica.... As you walk in, it is simply breathtaking! It is certainly one of the coolest venues in town, which is why I was thrilled when Jessi & Troy picked it for their wedding. 

Since they wanted a beach wedding, we had the ceremony take place at Karahe, under the trees. With the wedding being in the middle of November, we knew that rain was a  possibility.... but we got really lucky and were able to have the ceremony without using the tent, which was exactly what Jessi & Troy wanted! A classic and romantic setup under the trees, with a string trio in the background, and a stunning sunset to close it of.... it was just what we had all envisioned!

After the ceremony and beachfront cocktails, the guests were shuttled back to Casa Fantastica for dinner and dancing. We set up long tables for the guests, named after places special to the bride and groom's hearts, decorated with beautiful white and blush florals with just the right touch of gold accent for a little bling!

The cake and dessert table were a hit, particularly the Beauty and the Beast topper that the couple brought (they LOVE that love story!). Food was fantastic, the bar was rolling all night.... and when it got time to get the party started, not one guests stayed in their seats!!! A beautiful night with love, friends, family, great food, and dancing...  what more could you ask for??
