Guys, this is one gorgeous wedding! The vibrant colors with the boho style are completely crush-worthy and I’m so excited to share it with you! I should probably apologize for the quantity of photos below, but it’s the best I could do in trying to narrow them down. And really, after you see the photos I think you’ll forgive me for taking up a bit more of your time checking them out!
Tamara & Dave had spent some time in Tamarindo in 2015 so when we initially chatted in 2016 we zoomed in on Tamarindo right away. From there, the bohemian style she loved led us to Pangas very quickly. The setting provided the perfect backdrop for her style, very relaxed and fun feel but with rich natural style and top notch food and service.
When Cata & Tamara first spoke about design, they bonded right away over a mutual love of bohemian designs and pineapples. Tamara initially was looking at softer peach, pink, and ivory tones but with embracing the natural tropical florals of Costa Rica. Through late night texts and chats, and many Pinterest pins, Tamara realized she was responding more to richer pink, purple, and burgundy palettes. The deep tones were perfect for combining with gold accents, and mixing with natural elements. The vintage brass vases in different shapes and heights were the perfect fit, paired with wood pedestal vases and of course the gold pineapples! Cata has a vintage shop on Etsy so is a huge help in sourcing unique event details that are otherwise hard to find in Costa Rica; she kept Tamara’s vision in mind as she scoured brass vases in consignment shops. The wedding arch was an item we were particularly thrilled about, with its simple thin gold frame and draping leaf garland with just a minimal touch of color. The bridesmaids gowns in the muted tones were the perfect combination with the bolder flowers. Tamara got these selections just right!
I do have to say, Tamara’s use of Pinterest was completely ideal as – let’s face it – Pinterest can make even the sanest gal crazy. We’ve all been there – it can drag you in so many directions and styles that you could be planning 10 different weddings (or birthday parties, or crafts, recipes, home improvements, etc..). Tamara’s colors evolved but her core style remained the same so the results remained very true to her aesthetic. We love the influence Pinterest had on her wedding; as much as we liked her original palette we really couldn’t be happier with her choice of the bolder tones.
Kristina & Carola executed the day smoothly, switching to the back up plan of using Pangas second floor for dinner when weather was questionable. You’d never guess that was the plan B from looking at the photos! Personality-wise they were a great fit with Tamara & Dave, making the day relaxed, fun, and a beautiful celebration.
Tamara shared a few Favorite Moments with us in the weeks after the wedding:
- Spending time with our amazing group of friends and family, everyone really bonded and had the best week!
- The party and dancing was off the hook ….all of the guests commented that it was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding
- Our friends Ryan and Caitlin surprised us with an acoustic version of our song (Teenage Dream by Katy Perry ) There wasn’t a dry eye in the place after that!
… and her review of their experience can be viewed on Wedding Wire:
Meghan and her team were amazing throughout the whole process and especially the day of the wedding …special thanks to Kristina and Carola 🙂 Honestly hiring a wedding coordinator took so much stress and worry away from us. We had a destination wedding in Tamarindo, Costa Rica at the Pangas Beach Club and it was truly magical…..the service was beyond amazing and we had an awesome party! The decor and flowers exceeded my expectations…….Cata the designer outdid herself, and was so great to work with 🙂 I would highly recommend Mil Besos as a wedding/travel coordinator.
Congratulations Tamara & Dave!
