Glam in the jungle / Melissa & David at Villa Punto de Vista

It is always a pleasure to have our work featured, and even more so when it is on one of my personal favorite blogs out there, the GORGEOUS Carats & Cake.

Melissa & David are the epitome of chic. Beautiful, stylish, fun and surrounded by awesome people who love them. We wanted to go for a classic feel, but incorporating the green lushness that is so very Costa Rica.

At weddings at Villa Punto de Vista, most often, the ceremony space an the reception space is the same (we do a 90 minute room flip to change from the ceremony to the reception, which is always a fun challenge!), so we incorporated a lush hanging piece for the bride to pass under as she walked down the aisle. This same piece later became the main focal point of the head table. With such a statement piece, we didn’t want to over power the room, and keep it classically elegant, so we opted for covering the tables with candles from end to end. Not only did this look beautiful, it created a soft glow that was perfectly appropriate for dinner.

After dinner, guests joined the newlyweds on the dance floor and danced the night away!
