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 / Karol & Roberto at Hacienda Pinilla

I am a fan of color. When a client loves color too, I think that is a match made in Heaven. I was so happy to get to collaborate with Karol and Roberto who wanted their wedding to be vibrant and fun. It is also a good idea to go with bright colors when your wedding is in Guanacaste in the dry season... it is beautiful, but it is dry, and having a fun, colorful palette for your celebration creates a wonderful contrast between the sky, the gold colored wild grass and the ocean.
