I’ve never been to Costa Rica, but if this stunning soiree by Sara Kauss Photography is any indication, I need to make plans to visit ASAP.  Boasting some of the most gorgeous views I have ever seen, the prettiest of yellow hues and some very stunning calla lily centerpieces by Costa Brava Weddings & Events, this casual, yet elegant affair is all kinds of perfect.  Plus, there’s a cupcake tower and that’s always a good thing.  Yes, prepare yourselves for a whole lot of lovely and join me in the gallery for even more!

From the Bride… Tacho and I met quite unexpectedly in August of 2006.  Born and raised in Indiana, I had been relocated the summer before to LA with my job as a Branch Manager for a supply chain solutions company.  I hardly expected to stay in California more than a couple years, yet on August 4th Tacho, an Engineer with Downey Fire, entered my place of work to conduct the annual fire inspection, and I met my future husband.

After the ring was permanently on place on my left hand, we got busy trying to decide where we wanted to get married.  Choosing a destination wedding was one of the easiest decisions we’ve made!  The decision fit us both perfectly for different reasons.

We are both excited to give our immediate family and closest friends the opportunity to celebrate with us for an entire week.  Tacho being the social butterfly and life of the party couldn’t be more happy to have an entire week to party with everyone.  I’m happy we were able to plan an intimate ceremony and afford a reception that all of our guests will enjoy and hopefully remember for a lifetime!  What better way to build lifelong memories than exploring the jungle in Costa Rica!
