Haley + Mike

This tropical micro wedding was intimate and timeless on the coast of Costa Rica. Both Haley + Mike have demanding jobs. He is a pilot and she is a nurse. So they wanted a relaxing week with their loved ones. The morning was laidback. The girls all lounged in silky floral robes as they had their hair and make-up done for the big day. They sipped champagne in the lush green garden before getting dressed in their wedding attire. The bridesmaids wore flowy red gowns and the bridal gown was beaded with a sparkly belt for a touch of glam. They all grabbed their tropical bouquets and headed to meet the boys in the garden. The groom's party all wore dark blue and the boys had a red tie to compliment the bride's party. Everyone was laughing and giggling together as they headed to the beach for the ceremony.

The wedding ceremony was located outside of the boutique hotel under a clear topped tent on the shoreline. Wooden chairs faced the water and a topical chic arbor with greenery and local flowers. The clear blue skies and fluffy clouds were the picture-perfect backdrops for this couple to exchange their thoughtful vows in front of their closest friends and family.

The sun started to set soon after the big I do. Tamarindo is known for its incredible sunsets and for the lovely breeze on the beach. Everyone had fun soaking in those unforgettable moments together before walking back up the beach to the reception.

String lights created a romantic atmosphere for the reception and the light-colored wood tables added a touch of boho to the topical style. A floral garland decorated the table and pops of yellow and orange flowers were a great focal point to the design. Floating candles kept the table lit for the guests to enjoy their dinner made by local chefs.

After dinner and toasts, everyone hit the dance floor to celebrate together. As the night went on everyone danced up an appetite. A beautifully colorful spread of tarts, fresh fruit, cake, and more was the perfect way to fuel the party lasting into the late night! This wedding was truly a night to remember for a couple we will never forget!
