Ingrid + James

This international couple lives in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. They had never been to Costa Rica before but wanted to have an intimate wedding at an all-inclusive wedding venue in Tamarindo. They loved that this country is filled with beautiful nature to share this special moment with their loved ones. We helped them plan the perfect Capitan Suizo wedding in a hotel right on the beach.

The bride said "We love what Costa Rica has to offer; trees, exotic animals and flowers, and of course the sunset on the beach. My fiancé loves waterfalls and fishing. Nature is very important on our big day." Since this hard-working duo normally lives in a concrete jungle, we wanted to make sure all the decor and the setting matched their love for nature perfectly. We wanted to really give them and their guests an escape to paradise.

This destination wedding had a small guest list of only 25 people who traveled over the ocean from the USA and Brazil to see this beautiful couple say I do. Most of the guests had also never been to Costa Rica so we made sure to give them the best suggestions of places to explore in the area.

The couple wanted their guests to enjoy every moment. They decided against having bridesmaids or a wedding party. They opted for a more casual wedding.

This micro wedding vibe was very cozy. We decorated with lots of green leaves, white candles, wooden chargers, and complimented it all with details in blush and coral.

Everyone stayed at the hotel, which is centrally located in the heart of Tamarindo, and right on Playa Langosta. The entire weekend was filled with laughs, adventure, and unforgettable memories.
