This is one of those times when making a decision is not my forte!! These photos of Danielle and Jeff's gorgeous wedding are too fantastic not to share as many as I could! So Prepare yourself for a very large posting. I had previously worked with Otto Schulze (One of the Photographers who is the genius behind the lens of this art you will see below) last summer in Colorado. I was so blown away by his talent, I knew he would create magic in Costa Rica, and as you will see, he did just that.
Danielle and Jeff our gorgeous bride and groom are fellow Coloradoans, now recently relocated Californians. We got to meet in person in the mile high city to plan their big day, which was great. Then they headed to the tropics and my wonderful mid pacific manager and planner Karen Ogden executed a stunning wedding for them. They were married at the beautiful Los Suenos Beach Club in Playa Herradura, Costa Rica. The bride was a vision captured so flawlessly by the photographer (not a hard task, as she is a gorgeous woman) The bouquet was hand tied with fabric selected by the bride and the flowers were a mix of white cala's and fuchsia dendrodiums, which were the perfect contrast to her brilliant ruffled wedding gown. The bridesmaid held single orchids showcasing the elegance of the event that welcomed 80 guests from all over the world.
The tropical palm arch made up of two bamboo bases with palms coming out and tied together at the top. The flowers adorning the arch were Monstera leaves, haliconia, along with phalenopsis and dendrodium orchids.
The bride walked down an aisle lined with coconuts and more Monstera leaves The fans on the chairs cooled the already totally cool guests!
Loose orchids and candles sparkled in the light of the tiki torches as everyone enjoyed a specialty cocktail. At dinner, the guests were seated at round tables with trio centerpieces of submerged white Phalenopsis, green and fuscia dendrodium orchids with floating candles. At the entry to the reception were the fun escort cards of mustaches in cylindrical vases full of sand for each guest to have fun with. At the head table were Wayfarer sunglasses for all the wedding party. These fun props added a lot of humor to the event and showed the true playfulness of this amazing couple.
The party went on with a festive lit dance floor, and great tunes spun by DJ Jose PM of Costa Rica Weddings DJ's and an awesome group on non stop dancing guests. Fireworks explode into the Costa Rican night Illuminating the sky and creating a perfect end to a truly beautiful and memorable event.
