Purple Destination Beach Wedding in Costa Rica

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 26, 2013

Michelle & Marcus 

October 26  

Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica  

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride & Groom:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The details of the villa were absolutely breathtaking. Every detail from the architecture to the panoramic views.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. The gorgeous rooftop reception. It was in the evening, and there where beautiful candle lights everywhere, floating orchids in cylinder vases, romantic crystal mirror chargers, and regal plum linens.

2. The surprise dancing Carnival and drummers. Our guests still talk about it today!

3. The beach ceremony. It was classic, romantic, and timeless.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Our first dance. My husband was insistent that we have our first dance to a classic romantic Latin love song called “Boliviana” by Ibrahim Ferrer. It’s about a man professing his love to a beautiful dark-haired woman in a white dress.

Deniz & Khoa 

July 11 

Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride & Groom:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Turks & Caicos is a beautiful island with clear and calm blue waters and gorgeous white sand. We chose Beaches Resorts specifically because they are kid-friendly and offer activities for everyone.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. The monochromatic décor of the Martha Stewart wedding theme, which was chic and natural, available at Beaches and Sandals resorts.

2. The colorful pom poms that we brought, and  our guests hung in the trees and above the reception area.

3. The black and white (mostly infant) photos of all of our guests hung in a row on one side of the reception area.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

We always reminisce about the moment just before we walked into the reception.  After our ceremony and once the photos were taken, we had a quiet moment just the two of us while our friends were finishing with decorating the reception area.  We told one-another that we should really remember this moment and just how happy we felt!

Vibrant Coral and Beige Beach Wedding in California

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 13, 2013

Gale & Josh

July 27

Los Osos, California 

~~~~~~~~

From the photographer: “Having met Josh and Gale at another wedding I captured last year, I knew the fun celebration that was in store.  Gale found the Bay Back Inn online while searching for a wedding venue, and it was perfect. Guests could stay right on the property where the intimate ceremony and reception was held.  The grounds resembled that of Hawaii with the vibrant colors, gardens and oceanfront view.  Old row boats were scattered throughout the venue, and it offered some great props for pictures.  The soft cloud covering lasted the entire day but truly made everything pop off the page.  

Gale was radiant in her dress and had an effortless beauty to her.  Both of their nerves simmered the moment the saw each other.  Having Josh’s cousin perform the ceremony, Josh and Gale exchanged vows overlooking the bay with boats floating by.  While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the couple headed to Montana de Oro State Park for some couple shots on the jetties.  Upon returning, everyone indulged in an incredible Mexican food spread with homemade tortillas cooked on site and some of the best guacamole around.  A dessert bar awaiting everyone after the cake was cut and onto dancing they went.  This group truly knows how to celebrate and enjoy being together.” –Ashley Blake of A.
