A ZEPHYR PALACE WEDDING FOR THE BOOKS

Written by Jessica - Posted April 11th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

Morgan & Will came down to Costa Rica about a year or so before their big day to scope things out. I was lucky enough to meet them as they were doing tastings, scouting, touring, meeting and greeting. From that moment, we were counting down the days till their wedding at Zephyr Palace. We knew it would be lovely, fun, sweet, epic and oh so very romantical all rolled into one.

The vibe of the wedding was a sort of Great Gatsby meets the jungle. I know, I know, don’t you just wish you were invited! The wedding planning guru that is Larissa Banting of Weddings Costa Rica brought it to life beautifully (as always!). From the spectacular invitations done by non other then Ceci New York, to the impeccable decor by Weddings Costa Rica (complete with Speakeasy might I add), to the literally jaw dropping beaded 20’s style wedding dress that Morgan wore – I was half expecting Daisy to walk in at any moment or for Jay Gatsby to slap me around the shoulders – the old sport.

There was fireworks, dancing till the wee hours to seriously killer tunes from Chris Carter, a DJ that they brought in from L.A. and most likely drinking of champagne out of high heeled shoes – Jimmy Choo of course. If there were chandeliers, swinging from them would have been the natural thing to do. A wedding day for the books indeed.

A MOST RAD VILLA CALETAS WEDDING

We first met Ela & Jake last December at Hacienda Pinilla in Guanacaste. They had come down to celebrate their good friends Krista & Sean’s wedding here in Costa Rica. And we were the pair of fun loving wedding photographers capturing it all. We were super thrilled when Ela contacted us for her big day – they had adored the feel and vibe of  a destination wedding and fell in love with Costa Rica. It truly meant a lot to us that she dug our work and that she wanted us to shoot her wedding at Villa Caletas.

The wedding ceremony took place at one of Costa Rica’s most unique places – the amphitheatre at Villa Caletas. Which has a breathtaking view and is a truly memorable spot for your I do’s. Not everyone envisions their destination wedding to be on a beach – and Costa Rica has plenty of non-beach alternatives for wedding ceremonies.

Great food, amazing backdrop of Costa Rica, fantastic friends & family – it was a night to remember.  Oh and ofcourse fab wedding planning by Randy at Weddings Costa Rica. All there was left to do was dance the night away and perhaps smoke a cigar or two with your best friends.

Ela & Jake we cannot wait to see you guys back here in sunny Costa Rica to celebrate your 1st wedding anniversary and bring Krista & Sean with you for a full on reunion destination styles.
