Liza + Matthew

Liza + Matthew's rustic wedding in Tamarindo was the perfect blend of rustic charm and tropical paradise. Set against the stunning backdrop of Casa Puros Dieces, their special day captured the essence of everlasting love.

The day before the wedding, the couple and their invited guests had a thrilling day of zipline rides over a forest canopy. This was the perfect way to kick off the weekend, which was filled with special touches and memorable moments all throughout.

We especially loved the intricate details that beautifully reflected Liza + Matthew's unique personalities, right down to the thoughtful inclusion of matching "his and her" vow books.

The foundation of every wedding starts with color, so we drew inspiration from the couples’ favorite colors to design a classic Spring tones color palette. Blue and gray were incorporated to match the bridal party outfits, while white and green provided a clean and neutral foundation for the pops of orange and pink that added a playful and romantic touch.

Floral arrangements combined dense greenery and tropical blooms such as Anthuriums, Dendrobium orchids, Lisianthus, and Bird of paradise. For the ceremony, the couple chose flower pedestals instead of a traditional arch, highlighting the breathtaking ocean view and lush tropical forest surroundings.

The star of the show was their adorable one-year-old son who took on the role of the ring bearer, adding an extra touch of cuteness to the occasion. As guests arrived, they were greeted by a welcome drink station featuring fresh coconuts with personalized tags.
