Kayla + Jordan

Kayla + Jordan's Fun Wedding in Papagayo was the party of a lifetime with this energetic and adventurous crowd! Their unforgettable wedding journey enjoyed a coastal setting with captivating views of the Peninsula Papagayo. This couple’s wedding style can be described as chic, minimalist, and nature-inspired.

But the adventure didn't stop at planning the wedding: our team coordinated the days leading up to and following the wedding to be filled with Costa Rica's splendor and a multitude of activities for the couple and their guests. With a few days to explore Monteverde before heading to the coast, the group enjoyed everything from a Quetzel Tour and Sloth Sanctuary visit to a cocktail making class and yoga.  The entire trip was filled with opportunities for everyone to explore, relax, and embark on unforgettable experiences.

Meet Kayla + Jordan, a dynamic duo with an adventurous spirit. Their love story began on Bumble, just before the world changed due to the pandemic. Zoom dates and rescheduled plans led them to a first in-person encounter strolling through their local park. Their shared passion for exploring the outdoors, enjoying live shows, and savoring delectable culinary experiences showcased their down-to-earth yet vibrant approach to life.

Their wedding took place on the beach at the beautiful venue, El Mangroove. For the ceremony design, we embraced the natural beauty of the surroundings. A circular wedding arbor adorned with asymmetrical tropical blooms and abundant greenery framed the couple as they shared their hand-written vows. A jute rug-lined aisle featured small tropical arrangements in coconut vases, while a wooden shelf displayed a coconut arrangement with an unplugged sign, inviting guests to immerse themselves fully in the moment.
