From the photographer: Leah and Victor met and fell in love in Miami. When choosing a location for their wedding, they knew there was no place better for them than the beaches of Costa Rica. Victor was born and raised in Costa Rica, and the couple knew this would be the perfect place for their families to meet and celebrate together. After a sweet, intimate wedding the couple danced the night away under the stars on the beach with their closest friends and family. The couple even surprised their guests with a traditional Costa Rican comparsa band complete with dancers, drum circle, and stilt walkers to end the night.

Wedding Theme

The couple wanted a ‘Rainforest Rustic’ look and tried to be as eco-conscious at possible.

Wedding Menu

Carrie and David are both vegan and wanted to have a truly vegan wedding experience. Costa Rica is a proud steward of the environment (26% of the country is protected); however, vegetarianism isn’t widely recognized. Luckily, their gourmet chef Marco Gonzalez, is a true master of vegan cooking and baking and created recipes, consulted and was on-hand to oversee and assist for both the vegan rehearsal dinner and wedding buffet.

Eco Friendly Decor

For decor Weddings Costa Rica tried to do everything as eco and natural as possible. All the flowers were grown locally and the ceremony and welcome gift baskets were hand-woven by an indigenous women’s cooperative. All paper products were printed on paper made from banana fibers, including the mini-flags in the cupcakes, deciphering the different flavors.  Instead of a guest book, WCR designed and printed reproductions of antique post cards of Costa Rica over the past century.

Color Palette

A color scheme of mahogany, cymbidium green, lime green, terracotta and fuschia was brought to life using hydrangeas, dendrobium orchids, roses, fuji mums, pom pom mums, Bells of Ireland, branches, seeds from Guanacaste trees, and various berries were woven into the decor.

It was a beautiful wedding that proved that being kind to the environment doesn’t mean having to sacrifice great taste (both in decor and food!).
