Casa Chameleon Pool Party

At Casa Chameleon in the heart of Las Catalinas, Costa Rica, D+M hosted a fun laidback welcome Pool Party, surrounded by the people who matter the most, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. No frills, just good vibes and non stop fun.

Our laid-back couple, lovers of laughter and good times, decided to kick off their destination wedding festivities with a relaxed poolside soirée. Friends and family gathered, toes dipped in the water, as the sun dipped low, casting the sky in a bright, deep orange hue that echoed the warmth of the couple’s personalities.

Finger foods floated by on trays, a medley of tropical delights that matched the surroundings – mini empanadas, fresh ceviche, and of course, the crowd-pleaser, guacamole with the perfect crunch of tortilla chips. The cocktail of the day? Margaritas, naturally. Sipped on while floating in the pool or lounging by the water’s edge, they added the perfect zesty touch to the laid-back vibe.


As the DJ spun tracks that resonated with the couple’s carefree spirit, the dance floor (or, in this case, the pool deck) became a stage for impromptu limbo competitions and spontaneous twirls. Laughter echoed, and it was as if time slowed down, letting everyone savor the simple joy of being together.

With the sun beginning its descent, the sky transformed into a canvas of warm hues, creating a breathtaking backdrop for the evening. The couple, surrounded by the people who’ve shared in their journey of love, danced beneath the bright orange sunset. No grand gestures, just an intimate celebration of the love that brought everyone together.

And so, as the sky turned from orange to pink and the stars emerged one by one, the Welcome Pool Party at Casa Chameleon became more than just a prelude to a wedding; it became a memory etched in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to be there, a memory of love, laughter, and the magic that happens when you bring together the right people in the right place.

My favorite thing about destination weddings is watching all of the guests explore a new place! I, myself, love learning more about this tropical paradise. I also really enjoy how every single event is completely different and really reflects the couple and their love story.
