Costa Rica Weddings / Sam & Eugene at Pangas Beach Club

So happy to share this beautiful wedding at one of our favorite wedding venues!!!! Samantha & Eugene fell in love with the tree at Pangas, so it was only logical that it serve as the backdrop for their ceremony (and later in the evening, for their amazing dessert spread). 

Lovely little details were the focus of this wedding. The macrame for the seating display was made by the bride and finished off with a great local driftwood find (I am lucky enough to live in a beach where there is lots and lots of driftwood and if you are patient enough, you will find amazing stuff!). Names were hand written on awesome seed paper, and guests could take them and plant them!

One of my favorite details were the vodka carafes... As Eugene is Russian, it was important to them to honor their tradition and vodka filled carafes were set on each table.  The couple created custom tags that we tied around the carafes with multicolor string, adding special touches to the tables.

The general idea was to keep the decor with a boho feel, adding a pop of reds and oranges to a muted palette.  We worked with my favorite materials, wood,  glass, natural fibers, to give the space the perfect vibe, for an evening filled with fun, dancing and a most amazing dessert table!!!

Costa Rica Weddings / Lindsay & Chris at Zephyr Palace

You probably saw a few photos of Lindsay & Chris' rehearsal dinner at Los Sueños here, so you know their wedding was quite the gorgeous affair! Lindsay is not only gorgeous, but with a background in floral and event design, she was a dream client with fabulous taste.. and who does not LOVE that???

In contrast to the tropical chic vibe for the rehearsal dinner, Lindsay & Chris' wedding was full on classic glamour. An oversize orchid and rose bouquet for the bride, gorgeous white floral pieces with acrylic pedestals and LOTS of candles made the sunset ceremony (with one of the most amazing views in Costa Rica) one that I know everyone will remember forever. After a fun cocktail hour, guests went in for the reception... which was specifically designed to be classically gorgeous but filled with laid-back, old-fashioned fun. The newlyweds wanted the reception to be all about the party, so they treated their guests to a not so formal buffet dinner in order to get them on their feet and dancing from the beginning of the night. The purple and blue lighting the bride chose really set the party vibe they wanted.... and the confetti cannons.... well, need I say more????
