Stephanie + Fraser

We are thrilled to share the story of Stephanie + Fraser's breathtaking bohemian wedding in Tamarindo! Stephanie, a go-getter lawyer, and Fraser, a tech salesman, lead busy lives, especially since the shift to remote work post Covid. With their vibrant group of friends and a love for outdoor adventures, they were seeking a destination wedding that captured their glamorous yet bohemian spirit. And what better place to celebrate their love than the picturesque paradise of Tamarindo, Costa Rica?

One of the most memorable aspects of their engagement story was Fraser's surprise proposal at the Castello de Aragonese on the island of Ischia in Italy. The magical moment included a secret photographer capturing their joy. Stephanie was overjoyed, even though some may argue that after five years together, it was to be expected. Fraser humorously refers to marriage as "signing the contract to eternity."

Their shared love for travel and wine tasting inspired several meaningful touches incorporated into their wedding. Having explored various destinations together, including Croatia, Spain, England, Scotland, Italy, and Mexico, they made sure to infuse their wanderlust spirit into every detail. Their fashion style leaned towards trendy and modern, reflecting their vibrant personalities. They wanted their special day to exude love and be filled with candlelit romance. Soft lighting, floral design, and candles were essential elements that helped bring their wedding vision to life.

When their wedding day arrived, Pangas Beach Club was the perfect venue to set the stage for an unforgettable celebration. The ethereal setting created the perfect ambiance for their gathering, surrounded by lush greenery and a touch of romance. The ceremony took place under the majestic trees, where Stephanie + Fraser exchanged their heartfelt vows.

The bride's bouquet, adorned with ivory roses, delicate dried elements, and draping orchids, perfectly captured her romantic vision. A special touch that added to the ceremony was the officiant, who happened to be the aunt of the bride and groom. This personal connection deepened the emotional significance of their union.

To create a magical atmosphere for the reception, we adorned the venue with soft boho details. Rattan shelves displayed refreshing pipa drinks, while personalized tassel tags guided guests to their seats. A playful sign invited guests to find their "Coco" before the celebration got "Loco." Later in the evening, the shelves transformed into a display of dancing shoes, labeled "Solemates," ensuring everyone could dance the night away in comfort.

The dance floor took center stage, with uplights illuminating the surrounding trees. The breathtaking views created the perfect romantic backdrop for the couple's first dance as newlyweds. The combination of pampas and baby's breath chandeliers hung over the dance floor, creating a captivating atmosphere. To top it all off, Stephanie + Fraser's dream of fireworks came true. Explosions of light and color filled the night sky, symbolizing the start of their incredible journey as a married couple.
