Max and Talia are total globetrotters – they have been here, there and everywhere together. So for these travelling lovelies having a destination wedding was obvious. Deciding where would be the best place for their destination wedding was going to be the tough decision. They landed on beautiful sunny Costa Rica and the gorgeous beaches of Santa Teresa. Even though Max & Talia are travel aficionados – many of the guests they were inviting were going to need to get passports for the first time – this was going to be a true adventure for everyone!
Even though they were thousands of miles from Seattle – how does the saying go again: you can take the couple out of Seattle, but they will still bring their Sea Hawk spirit (…and Sea Hawk glasses and Sea Hawk flag and DIY Sea Hawk garter…)
They were expecting about 50 guests and really wanted to have everyone hanging out and enjoying the week together. So they chose Tropico Latino hotel which is right on the beach and they literally booked out the entire place which is awesome. Marianne of Bliss Weddings was their wedding planner and she did a gorgeous job creating such a fun and chill day for this travel themed wedding.
Another reason they chose Tropico Latino was the floors. Come on, doesn’t everyone love a good floor. This wedding party knows how to throw down when it comes to dancing it up. I mean seriously the song should have been called “Moves Like Max” – not Jagger, sorry Mick. So when they were deciding where to have the wedding – having a proper floor (vs. just dancing on the sand like the rest of us amateurs) was mega important. And they were so right – that floor in the yoga studio was perfect, the moves were epic and the night was amazing.
Small note: I would just like to take a mini moment to remember my awesome shoes that got swept away by the ocean that day. While I was shooting the bridesmaid/groomsmen pics I took them off to be able to walk better on the sand… and then the tide came in. Shoes – I just wanted to let you know personally how cool you were. We had some great times together and I miss you very much. I hope that some mermaid with good style has found you and appreciates your radness or a fun fish is now using you as a modern house. Stay cool forever.
