From A Brit & A Blonde… We are super lucky to be a part of so many couples big day. But I think nothing could have prepared me for perhaps the most romantic and sweet surprise elopement ever. Jens & Cece are from Germany – they both adore snowboarding when home but their heart really lies with surfing. So there is no surprise that they love, love, love Malpais in Costa Rica – a total mecca for surfers. Jens & Cece have been together for quite a few years and are quite non-traditional – they knew that a big blowout wedding with a ton of people was just not for them. They were down here in Costa Rica for a fun surf vacay. But Jens had other plans! He was planning on proposing to Cece here and then to elope. Literally a few days before the elopement date that he had in mind – he asked her. She said YES! Since Cece only had a couple of days notice – there was no time to go get a dress and the whole thing – which isn’t even her style – so for her I do’s she wore a bikini top and a fun white skirt she found in one of the stores in Malpais. And then she changed into another simple beachy dress she found here for sunset cocktails and dinner. Jens had got in touch with Malpais Green Weddings a few weeks before he popped the question – to have some wedding experts help him create the perfect day. Myriam and Lisa are amazing at what they do – and created a truly magical ceremony and dinner for two beachside of course. The planners knew the perfect spot that was right on the beach and private. The couple went surfing in the morning and then got married in the afternoon. A most perfect day for these two! And it just goes to show that you don’t need to have a ton of bells and whistles to have a gorgeous and magical day. Their day was simple, sweet and unbelievably romantic.

From Emily Elizabeth PhotoChris and Lori’s wedding was a small intimate family affair on the beach in Costa Rica. It was at the end of the rainy season, and down poured on our drive to the ceremony, but cleared up just in time and ended up a perfectly beautiful day. 

From The Bride…Chris and I both grew up in beach towns in different countries. So a beach wedding was created to bring two ocean cultures together. Our families and friends enjoy learning about new places and cultures so we thought that Costa Rica was the perfect location for everyone to join us from abroad. By gathering images and ideas and communicating with our wedding planners, Jaime and Aimee from Tropical Occasions, we were able to narrow down the feel we were searching for. We were inspired by colors and textures of the beach. The style was meant to be kept simple, fresh and soft since it’s a smaller intimate wedding. We kept the glasswear in the blue/green color palettes which echo back the theme of the ocean. The wedding planner worked with a local florist to provide flowers and bouquets in the same soft color palette. All of this fit perfectly together thanks to the efforts of so many people and the contributions from everyone we know.
