CASA LOS OLIVOS PLAYA LANGOSTA WEDDING WONDERMENT

Written by Jessica - Posted July 1st - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

 

Wowsers – it has been a very, very, very long time since we had a chance to put up a blog post. We have been extremely busy bees since January capturing some really epic and amazing destination weddings in Costa Rica. We have so many fun ones to share – so stay tuned in the coming weeks for more sunny Costa Rica weddings. And also for many radtastic Canadian weddings now that our summer season has kicked into full gear.

Brittany and Bill currently live in NYC and met a couple of years ago while in a line up for a shindig in the Hamptons. Pretty incredible. They chose to say their I do’s in beautiful Playa Langosta, Costa Rica – since Bill’s brother owns a fantastic beachfront villa – Casa Los Olivos– and how can you not want your ceremony in such an idyllic spot. With around 40 of their nearest and dearest, the ceremony took place on the beach and then cocktails and reception and dancing fun steps away back at the villa.

The couple got primped and prepped at the nearby boutique hotel, Cala Luna, and we did their first look amongst the lovely green hedges between the villas. Maruja of Lat 10 Weddings & Events helped Brittany and Bill with wedding planning and decor/rentals were courtesy of Eventos Artensanos – who did a top notch job of bringing the couple’s vision to life. Pure beachy bohemian laid back perfection.

That night was also perhaps the most unbelievable sunset ever. And we have seen our share of sunsets over the years living in Costa Rica – that I do sorta consider myself a bit of sunset snob. This one however blew me away. It is wild to think that we were all there to witness its sheer sunsetty awesomeness thanks to a line up in the Hamptons a couple of years ago. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Mad props Hampton line up – hats off to you, you did good. Very good.

THE BEAUTIFULLEST BURROUGHES BUILDING WEDDING EVER

Written by Jessica - Posted February 15th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

Okay so beautifullest may not be a word. But sometimes a lil’ liberty with the English language is needed – other non-words that spring to mind gorgetascity, fantabulousness and of course awesomtastic.

Graham & Huy are downtown Toronto dwellers and chose their wedding venue accordingly. What better spot than the Queen West Burroughes Building location. We have had the opportunity to shoot at this coveted downtown Toronto spot multiple times. And each and every time it looks and feels different and the couple can really put their stamp on things.

Maybe it was the ridiculously stunning Jenny Packham wedding dress that Huy wore or the Tom Ford bow tie on Graham in his exquisite suit but these two were picture perfect. Instead of a traditional floral bouquet and boutonniere – Huy made – yup she did it herself – that beyond beautiful jewelled bouquet with lovely vintage brooches and hairpins. Not a blossom in sight. It was one of the loveliest things  – plus she gets to keep it forever, ever. Not one to be outdone – Graham sported a Bluejay feather lapel pin from Toronto company Hook & Furl. The dapperist.

The ceremony was officiated by the one and only Mary Beaty – who always does a splendid job of making the ceremony light hearted and fun. Wedding design and planning was done by Iris Li of Blue Lavender Events – she is a total pro dotting her i’s and crossing her t’s and making everything look perfectly perfect.

This wedding was classic and whimsical and well like I said the beautifullest.

Lee: So beautiful! Any chance you know where her necklace is from?

Jessica: It was purchased at White in Toronto.

SFai: Can anyone tell me where to find that gorgeous gown in Toronto?
