Cecilia and Tim are a beautiful couple from Los Angeles, CA. Their dream of a chic, sophisticated destination wedding was wholly realized in February 2011 at the Villa Marrakesh in Costa Rica.
The bride was inspired by the extravagant beauty of the Marrakesh's architecture and incredible event space. The natural setting of the willowy trees and the soft glow of paper lanterns continued the feel of her desired Paris in Spring, but in the tropics wedding.
Black and White was the main color palate, bistro style tables and a long banquet tables with Damask runner adorned with bright sunset colored roses are reminiscent of an elegant parisian cafe.
Complimenting the scenery was the gorgeous Vera Wang wedding gown worn by the bride which was tied softly at the waist with a black satin ribbon and stunning rhinestone appliqué.
The design was enhanced by the thoughtful collaboration between Aimee and Alessandra of Tropical Occasions, the bride and her mother Gilda.
Catering was provided by local chef Bathsheba and the event was perfectly staged by Aimee Monihan and flawlessy executed by her team leader in Costa Rica, Alessandr and head design consultant Anahi.
