Via + George

Casa Puros Dieces Villa Wedding

Location:

Via + George live in Canada and took their first trip to Costa Rica together 8 years ago. They quickly fell in love with the country and knew it would be the perfect place to celebrate their love. They had never been to Tamarindo so they didn't know what to expect. Via knew she wanted a soft bohemian look for her wedding and wanted to find a wonderful private space to make her dreams come to life.

A Casa Puros Dieces Villa wedding couldn't have been a more perfect fit for this couple. The venue had space for every part of the day, all of their guests, and was in easy access to the beach for the ceremony. It was intimate and created a very laid back atmosphere for their guests to enjoy the weekend.

This couple wanted to get comfortable in front of the camera and scheduled a Pre Wedding Photoshoot on Playa Tamarindo a few days before the big I do. This was also the perfect chance to explore the town and spend some time only focusing on one another.

The bride said her absolute favorite moment was the first look. She commented "It was a great decision because of how hectic the day was, it was a moment that was only for the two of us." We hear so many brides say this!

Her boho wedding dreams were achieved with the help of our in house designer. We kept things very simple on the beachfront ceremony. The alter used two different size pedestals, pampas grass, and the beautiful couple stood perfectly framed in the middle.

This bride chose ebony tables for a rich backdrop which contrasted the soft florals with the occasional gold sprayed leaf. Via had fun with the seating assignments and had Polaroids of each guest on their place setting. It was such a personal touch and really a great conversation starter for the guests too!

For the reception this bride loved the idea of the couple sitting at the double peacock chair for their couple table. Then the guests sat at a U shape table which made for a more intimate feel.

Her guests stayed at two villas. The main villa, Casa Puros Dieces, where the wedding reception would take place. Then another batch of guests would stay in Casa Alang Alang just nearby.

The bride commented " Casa Clang Alang is breathtaking and I would recommend it to everyone. The service was fantastic and they were able to accommodate a lot of small things we asked for. Then Casa Puros Dieces was the best wedding venue villa we could have hoped for. It was intimate, had great space, and guests loved the fact they can quickly go from their wedding attire to swimsuits to jump straight into the pool." On that side note, we are glad Via chose to jump in the pool with her gown on! Such a fun wrap up to the day!

For wedding weekend activities some of the guests enjoyed a turtle tour during a rare arribadas, which was definitely a highlight. Arribadas is when all of the turtle's nest and hatch in a large scale group. It is a truly magical work of nature.

Tips from the bride: "There are so many ideas that it can be overwhelming, I suggest looking through Pinterest/Instagram and find a vision that you like and stick to it. Trust and communicate with the vendors with your vision, they are there to help and guide you. If they suggest something with a similar tone or feeling but not exactly the flower you thought, trust them! They know what they are talking about! Also. get a wedding planner. 1000000% get a wedding planner!"

We were overwhelmed with planning a destination wedding. We initially contacted some hotels but their wedding packages weren't quite what we were looking for, they were a little too impersonal with little flexibility. So we started looking for wedding planners.

We contacted a few wedding planners but Meghan/Mil Besos was the only one that responded quickly and thoughtfully. She addressed everything I asked in our email from budget to multiple venue options.. and that was just from the first email! The app for planning was easy to follow and gave us a good timeline of when things should get done.

Our wedding day was stress free. Sol was our coordinator and she made sure we were happy and organized the entire day. The flowers and rentals were straight from my Pinterest board, everything was executed exactly how we envisioned. The food vendors they suggested were FANTASTIC, my guests still tell me how great the food was. Oh! She also helped us plan our mini honeymoon in Costa Rica.. anything we were thinking of, they were there to help.

Overall, We are so happy that we chose Meghan and the Mil Besos team! Thanks again!!
