Hilary & Kevin
Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
From the Photographer: “Hilary and Kevin hail from Texas where they met while working at Neiman Marcus. Many people think that all destination weddings end up having a very similar tropical color scheme, but the reality is – your wedding should incorporate the colors that speak to you and that you love. Hilary created a really pretty yellow and gray color scheme and bucked that tropical trend. And it turned out gorgeous!
The ceremony was in such a unique spot – a coconut grove. The couple said their “I do’s” under an arch that was handmade from driftwood and incorporated that lovely sunny yellow color in the sunflowers and gerberas. To quench their guests’ thirst, the couple offered Coco Locos, a drink of local coconuts and Costa Rican rum. Delish! All the decor pieces had a “found object-ness” about them – from hand-painted driftwood signs to recycled mason jars with candles that hung in the trees.
We adored the kids’ table – so much fun with crayons, glitter, paints, stickers, you name it! The kids were kept busy all night and had a grand time! They also had a babysitter who looked after them all so that the parents could really have a fun time, too.
The seating chart was such a unique idea. It was an old wooden ladder with jute rope – the place cards were held on by clothespins. It looked so divine. We really loved the bridesmaid dresses that brought in that fun yellow again and flowers too. Again the couple bucked the trend and told the bridesmaids that they could pick any dress they wanted that reflected their own personality, the only stipulation was that it was in the same color scheme – and the flower girls were beyond adorable in their Crewcuts by J.Crew dresses. Hilary stole the show in head-to-toe BHLDN – she looked amazing yet not fussy. She was able to enjoy walking on the beach and dancing the night away in her beautiful dress, perfect for a destination wedding.” – A Brit & A Blonde
