A COLOURFUL TROPICAL BEACH WEDDING IN COSTA RICA
Miranda & Daniel’s beachfront destination wedding at Langosta Beach is one of the most beautiful weddings we have seen all year. As the grooms family lived in Costa Rica for many years, there was really no doubt that they were going to have the destination wedding in a place that Daniel and his family proudly called home.
“We decided that a destination wedding would be perfect for us. Costa Rica was the destination of choice because Daniel and his family had lived there for most of his childhood, it was the perfect opportunity to get the family back to Costa Rica, have a beautiful wedding, and have an unforgettable honeymoon.”
“For the theme of the wedding, we really wanted to embrace the natural beauty of the country we were in. We wanted a lot of native flora with an emphasis on greenery to symbolize the lush rainforests of Costa Rica, and we wanted to have the ceremony on the beach so we could enjoy the beauty of the coast.” Miranda explained.
“Our ceremony and reception were held at Langosta Beach Club in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We had bamboo chairs and vases filled with tropical leaves at the beginning of the aisle of the ceremony. The arch for the ceremony was gorgeous! It was covered in lush green leaves with bright tropical flowers. This theme continued to the reception. We had wood tables with greenery and tropical flower runners, gold accents in the table numbers, charger plates, and candle holders. A clear tent covered the reception tables with strings lights covering the canopy.”
“Flora was the most important decoration element at our wedding. The bridal bouquet was greenery, bright flowers, and one giant succulent. Tropical flora covered the wedding arch, table runners, and the table for the seating chart. We had clear vases filled with giant leaves placed throughout the ceremony and reception area. The boutonnieres were succulents and the corsages were orchids.” She added.
“Our wedding planner, Barbara at Four Nineteen Weddings, made our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. Honestly, if you are having a destination wedding I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner. And make sure to do your research! We interviewed several planners before we ended up with Barbara. We liked that she lived in Costa Rica and had a close relationships with the vendors in the area. She was very professional and all the weddings she had done were beautiful. Another important aspect to remember when planning a wedding, especially destination, is to keep your guests as best informed as possible. We had a website and a Facebook page to be able to communicate with ours.”
