Who would have thought when you logged into Style Me Pretty this morning that you’d be spending your day in Costa Rica? When Ale Sura Photography sent over a phenom, colorful Costa Rican wedding, I knew I just had to share it with all my favorite LBBers. Seriously, this wedding is so amazing, from the soft rosy glow encompassing the whole day to the fantastically bright and delicious looking candy buffet. And of course, every detail in between. I am so going to shut off my phone for a little while and spend some time imagining I’m at this wedding – complete with the warm Costa Rican weather, and the company of that gorgeous bride and her yummy groom. Good thing there is even more in the full image gallery!

Rich and I have always been an extroverted couple and with very different tastes. When we got engaged, we knew that our wedding had to show our personalities and our life style. Our parents had a little trouble trying to understand our taste for colors and decoration since they were used to the traditional white-and-silver wedding. However, they accepted our ideas and… we got down into business!

We believe that when God brings two people together, He takes care of every little detail, and that happened with our wedding.  We knew that we wanted an colorful, outdoor wedding in the morning. The flowers and the paper lamps were simple but elegant. The candy bar was our main challenge, but with our friends’ help,  we had it perfect! The cake (the cherry on top) had to reflect our personalities.  Rich is a drummer, and I have always admired his passion to play the drums, so we decided to have a fun and personal cake topper. We loved how it looked at the end!

Finally, one of the biggest decisions: pictures! They’re the memories of unique moments in life, so it was necessary to hire someone who knows how to capture what’s behind the wedding…  love, emotions, and the best feelings in that special day! Ale Sura was perfect.
