Choosing the Mil Besos team to plan our wedding was the best decision we made! Meghan helped us choose the location, the villa, and every detail of how our wedding day would go.
For wedding design, we worked with Cata. She was so personable and responsive. She made choosing furniture, flowers, and other decorations easy. On the wedding day everything was incredibly well done.
This team goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. One special memory I have is how happy I was when I saw the lighting over the dinning table. When discussing lighting options, what I wanted was out of our budget and seemed too difficult to execute. But to my surprise, the lights were way better than we what had originally settled on. It was beautiful.
When my husband and I created our wedding budget, a videographer was not in the plan. Lucky for us, a videographer messaged Meghan looking for a Costa Rica wedding shoot for their portfolio. Getting a wedding video at no cost was an absolute treat and we are so grateful.
Sol was the coordinator for the wedding day. With her leading the charge, I knew I wouldn't have to worry about a thing. She was so organized and brought such positive energy to the day. I'd highly recommend her for day of execution.
In addition to coordinating the wedding day, Meghan also helped us book a caterer for other dinners, a yoga class at the villa, and recommended other awesome vendors we could book with.
I can't say enough good things about Mil Besos. If you are planning your destination wedding in Costa Rica, choosing them in a no-brainer!

Meghan and her team are truly a joy to work with, one of the best in the world! I contacted Meghan to help me host a retreat for photographers in Costa Rica, and she went above and beyond to ensure the event was a success. From venue selections, to accommodations, to timelines and shoot design, Meghan's team took care of all of the details perfectly! I am so impressed with their organizational abilities and how connected they are with local businesses in Costa Rica as well as the Costa Rican culture. It was so helpful to have someone who understood the region on our team to offer us important insights! I would hire her for another event in a heartbeat! I also have worked with Mil Besos as the photographer/videographer for a wedding they planned, and I was similarly impressed. All of the vendors were on the same page, and despite a very busy schedule, the day was seamless. Meghan even sought out medication for one of the children who attended and had an allergic reaction to the sand-- above and beyond! You can't do any better than Mil Besos.
Michelle + David
Couldn't have done it without Meghan and her team! I tried to plan the wedding on my own for the first few months but quickly realized it was almost close to impossible considering I live in a different country nor do I speak the language. Spoke to several wedding planners over the phone before hiring Mil Besos. I chose Meghan because we clicked over the phone very easily and knew we would get along great. She made the process very easy to follow with her phone app (we pretty much planned the whole wedding using the app and texting.)
The number 1 star on her team that I can't gush enough about is her designer, Catalina! LOVE LOVE Catalina! She was awesome, easy to work with, answered all my questions/texts with quick responses anytime during the day. Catalina also served as my "therapist" at one point with guests drama as the wedding date got closer haha. I would say Catalina was definitely an integral part of the planning, I kept in touch with her the most. There was communication issues with the hotel venue (Villa Caletas) but Cat and Meghan were on them to make sure things were getting done and always kept me in the loop.
Kristina was my day of coordinator, she is awesome! Very direct and straight to the point with any decisions on the day of which I appreciated so I didn't have to really think or decide anything last minute. Took the stress off of me.
After the wedding was over, at least half the guests mentioned how it was one of the most beautiful, most put-together weddings they have attended. Even my photographer and videographers thought it was one of the smoothest weddings they have worked. Overall, I couldn't have picked a better team to help plan out my big day!
Kait + Matt
Meghan and her team are absolutely amazing. Meghan quickly became attune to my personality and style and adapted to it with professionalism and thoughtfulness. All of her suggestions took into consideration the many conversations we had. If I needed additional options for vendors, layout, etc., she would always return promptly with several well researched suggestions.
Having Meghan behind the wheel was invaluable. I honestly could not imagine having gone through the process without her. Between her experience, vendor connections, and insights the day went off without a hitch.
Also - Catalina, our wedding designer, was a dream. She made the process SO fun. Her creativity, eye for design, and dedication to our day made it feel as though it was as important to her as it was to us. I cannot say enough good things about her.
To hire the Mil Besos team is to guarantee success. Cheers and good luck!
Brooke + Shahin
We decided we wanted to do a destination wedding and get married in Costa Rica, one of our favorite places. At first, I tried to start planning on my own, and was able to get a decent amount done (venue booked, dress found, photographer and videographer) on my own. I soon came to realize that there is A LOT that goes into planning a wedding, especially when you live in another Country (we live in Texas) and your Spanish is sub-par to say the least.
I found Meghan and the Mil Besos Team after doing tons of research on planners. I loved how they had experience both here in the States as well as in Costa Rica. The Team was wonderful from the moment I first interacted with them! I remember wanting to hug Meghan the first time I spoke with her. I felt like she was my guardian angel sent to help take all of the stressors away that planning the biggest day of your life can bring upon you.
They thought of EVERYTHING! So many things I would never have even thought of. All I had to do was outline my vision, and they went to work making it happen. We did floral trials, food tastings, shipped fake flowers in from China, made our own napkin rings, and so many other small details that one would think a planner would never help with. They truly love what they do and take pride in making this day your most special and memorable day.
The planning is one thing, but the execution is another. The day of the wedding the team made sure every step of the way was covered. Everyone in my Wedding Party knew where to go, when to be there and what to do. It was like they were a team of Wedding Ninjas just knocking things out left and right. I had the most stress free wedding experience I can imagine and it really is all thanks to the Mil Besos Team.
It isn't just one person that you work with. You work with a designer, a florist expert, a planning expert, etc. They use an application to make communications easy and are always available, no matter what time of day or night. Do yourself a favor and hire this Team. You will not regret it. It was the best decision I made throughout my whole planning process.
Thank you Mil Besos! You truly are amazing at what you do and we cannot thank you enough for making our day one we will never forget. 🙂
Cheyenne + Jake
Our destination dream wedding came true thanks to Meghan and everyone at Mil Besos. I cannot thank them enough!
When my husband and I first decided on our Costa Rican destination wedding, we really did not no where to start. We started looking at venues online by random searches. We quickly found out we were over our heads. As a new bride Instagram and Pinterest were my new favorite apps. I wanted to see pictures of wedding in Costa Rica and various tagged locations. I was blessed by accidentally coming across a beautiful wedding picture on Mil Besos's Instagram page. I then looked up their website and saw all the wonderful reviews, awards, and various mentions they have received in bridal magazines.
I contacted the company and they were quick to respond with all of my many questions. The rest is history! Meghan was there every step of the way and made the whole wedding process a breeze. All of my guests were so impressed at the quick responses from the company when booking their stay, excursions, and flights.
Also, a huge thanks to Catalina for helping me create our beautiful wedding. She made making the big or small decisions about the wedding decor so easy and fun!
I could not recommend this company enough for helping you plan your dream destination wedding. They made the experience stress free and enjoyable. Thanks again Mil Besos!
Via + George
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!!
Areli + Jorge
Meghan and her team were extremely attentive and were there to help us every step of the way.
We really don’t know what we would’ve done without their advice.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us! Our wedding day was perfect.
Keyla + Curtis
My dream of an intimate destination wedding came to life all thanks to Meghan and her Mil Besos team. Could not have chosen a better planner to have brought my dream and vision to life!
Sami + Garret
Our wedding was amazing and we have Meghan / Mil Besos to thank!
We were married at a private villa that belongs to a friend of our family, so for about 5 minutes, I thought about planning it myself. The logistics of bringing everything in prompted me to look for a planner. That was the best decision I could have made, everything exceeded my expectations!
The flowers, the food... I am a bit of a worrier and a destination wedding comes with so many unknowns. Throughout planning Meghan was there to help me and the planning system she uses kept me comfortable knowing where I was in planning and what was coming next.
Everyone that works with her had such a positive sunny vibe and they were so relaxed!!! I arrived several days ahead thinking I would have loose ends to tie up but there wasn’t anything for me to do, it was all finished, so I got to lay on the beach and fall off a LOT of surfboards in my attempts at surfing - but I did it!! You can tell they love what they do, and I’m so so happy Meghan / Mil Besos was recommended to me by our friends. Absolutely 10000% recommend Meghan and her team!!
Sharon + Jake
There are not enough words available to express the appreciation we have for Mil Besos and Meghan!
Meghan crafted our absolute dream wedding. Every detail down to the napkin color was thought out for both my husband and I AND all of our guests. The best thing about using a company like Mil Besos for a destination wedding is that they act as your travel agent AND your wedding planner!
She ALSO planned a dream honeymoon for us! Meghan's level of professionalism is second to none! She was right on the ball with everything from the moment we got engaged until the last minute of our honeymoon. HIGHLY recommend Mil Besos, can't say enough positive things about their entire team!
Also - highly recommend taking them up on their vendor recommendations (florist, video, photo, DJ...etc.) as Meghan ONLY works with the best in the industry! THANK YOU Mil Besos for your everlasting impact on our life!
Cassie + Jay
If you are thinking of a wedding in Costa Rica, Mil Besos is where you need to start! I have a hard time saying 'NO' sometimes and they always sensed when I was hesitant and coached me into figuring out what I REALLY wanted. They knew the places I visited so well, best practices, and even the locals we were working with. They pushed to meet deadlines without it feeling like they were pushing at all! They were very open to my crazy ideas, and always responsive! Even when I would email them in the middle of the night with weird thoughts or ideas. They talked to my guests for me when they had questions before we left and it felt like we all knew them before we even got there! It was like we were friends, but we hadn't even met yet! Everything just went SO smoothly, and even when I messed up timelines or one of my guests lost something they would just be there to help out! Even when I don't think it was their job, they were going out of their way to help and make sure nothing went wrong the whole 8 days we were there. They cared and took my wedding as seriously (If not more so!) as I did! If you want to do this wedding planning as smoothly and easily as possible, these guys are hands down the only way to go!
Amanda + Joe
Meghan and Mil Besos did an excellent job making our destination wedding dreams come true!
Communicating through email and Pinterest made the experience stress free and everything turned out perfect.
Alysa + Manuel
My now husband and I firsted visited Costa Rica after 2 years of dating and made a promise to come back and get married which we did on our 7 year anniversary and they made my Dream Wedding come true and even helped with the Catholic church process which is so very hard to get done. I can never thank them enough for helping keep us calm, even when things popped up I never knew it happen until someone else mentioned it. I will never forget my beautiful wedding day.
Meghan + Michael
My husband and I used Mil Besos to plan our destination wedding. Meghan and her team made our wedding day an absolute dream come true!!. Meghan and Cata are amazing and so easy to work with. We had a vision and they both went above and beyond to execute it. From the ceremony arch, to the flowers, to the reception venue and every detail in between, everything came together better than we could have ever imagined, we were blown away! They were both accessible whenever I had a question or wanted to run an idea by them. I always felt like I was a priority. Meghan plans for everything. We had a plan for the ceremony and reception and also a backup in case of rain which ended up coming in handy because we had to go with plan b for the ceremony. Sol was our day of coordinator, just as amazing as the rest of the team, and took care of everything. She made the appropriate changes quickly and seamlessly, always with a positive attitude and smile on her face. I did not have to worry about a thing. Not only were my husband and I taken care of, the guests were as well. Meghan worked with everyone to plan their getaway as well as book any transportation or excursions they may have wanted to do. We cannot praise this company enough! We highly recommend Mil Besos for your destination wedding. Contact Meghan immediately, you will not regret it!! Pura Vida
Tamara + Dave
Meghan and her team were amazing throughout the whole process and especially the day of the wedding ...special thanks to Kristina and Carolla 🙂 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.
Courtney + Chris
I honestly don’t know where to begin with how perfect Mil Besos made our entire wedding experience. Meghan is so attentive and prompt responding to emails and helped with everything from choosing vendors, to suggesting Honeymoon locations, to every little detail about our day. She was so thorough, and our day could not have gone smoother! Her team is incredible, and her connections in the wedding community in Costa Rica are invaluable. She was there with us every step of the way and I highly recommend her. I even told some of my wedding planner friends at home about her and they were even impressed when I told them how helpful and amazing she was! She’s the best and I would hire her again in a second!
Rebecca + Michael
We can’t believe it’s nearing six months since our beautiful wedding trip, and we would be remiss if we didn’t thank Meghan and her wonderful team for making it all happen in a truly breathtaking fashion. Mil Besos helped us plan a 5 day trip for 45 guests to Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort in Playa Tamarindo, with our wedding ceremony taking place at Pangas Beach Club. Meghan and team coordinated our guest’s accommodations, travel to and from the airport, excursions, and the wedding day, of course. My husband and I have a crazy work and personal schedule, so the thought of coordinating a wedding in another country was daunting, but Meghan made it all seem effortless! I live in the U.S., so we corresponded through email and used a project management app, which made it super easy to plan and talk with her during the work day or send a quick note through my phone when I was out and about. Meghan understood the wedding details that were most important to us and helped us choose (and successfully book) the vendors that made our vision materialize (and within our price points too!). She was extremely responsive throughout the planning process, always responding to questions or comments within a day or two, if that.
When our group arrived in Costa Rica, the Mil Besos team helped our guests with any questions and travel/excursion adjustments they wanted to make along the way. That was a MAJOR win for my husband and me; we were able to just enjoy the trip, rather than play the role of trip coordinators. On the day of the wedding, Meghan, Sol, and Artflower were a force to be reckoned with! They made sure our guests and bridal party were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there and the venue was all ready to go.
It was truly a joy and pleasure to work with the whole Mil Besos team on our wedding, and we'll treasure these memories forever!
Kristen + Casey
My husband and I used Mil Besos to plan our small wedding and honeymoon. We changed our plans drastically at least three times (from a larger wedding to an elopement and then back to a small wedding with only a month to spare). And although I know that it was so much extra work for Meghan at times, she made things seamless and perfect. My husband and I had never even been to Costa Rica before so rest assured we had questions about absolutely everything. Meghan was absolutely wonderful.
Catalina, the designer that worked with Meghan during the planning process, was also wonderful. She had a great eye. Together, they really went above and beyond to execute what we had imagined. The driftwood arch we had imagined, for example, turned out to be exactly what we had described wanting, even though we didn't have a real picture to go off of. The ceremony in Tamarindo was absolutely beautiful and was exactly what we had imagined. The details were perfect and even though a thunderstorm erupted right before the ceremony and everything had to be moved, they all handled it with such grace and patience. They made me feel so calm and like I honestly had to do nothing at all.
I would recommend them 10 out of 10 times and then over and over again.
Nicole + Jad
My husband and I got engaged while visiting Costa Rica and quickly decided we wanted to get married there as well the following year which is where Meghan from Our Costa Rica Wedding/Mil Besos comes in. From my original contact with Meghan, to the very last detail and wrap up, I felt as if I was her #1 client and of upmost importance to her (which every bride wants to feel, right!?). She and her staff are incredibly professional and insightful. I could never have dreamed of having such a delightful wedding planning experience especially in another country. We actually had fun getting to know one another via emails each step of the way. As a wedding planner, it is obvious Meghan has a love for her job and has all the right contacts for putting together a picture perfect event. She and her staff easily guided me through every detail pointing out the multiple options and giving opinions when I needed them (which was often). She helped me pick out the best vendors to meet my every need and I’m truly glad I followed her guidance. One thing I valued most about her services was the trip planning for each guest so that I would have to answer as view questions as possible. She booked activities, transportation, and rooms for each person taking a large amount of stress off me.
As for the wedding day itself, I kept saying and want to emphasize “I never thought I would’ve gotten practically everything I wanted and dreamed for in a destination wedding, but wow did Meghan deliver!” It was amazing, stunning, organized, and picturesque!!! Not at all like the cookie cutter weddings you get at a typical resort in the Caribbean.
Lynne + Daniel
To be honest, the thought of a destination wedding worried me at first. I'm a bit of a control freak. I thought... Would our friends and family travel? Could we afford it? Could I effectively convey my vision via internet and phone? How would the planning come together if I'm not there to oversee it? All of these questions and any other worries I had were quickly washed away with Meghan's confidence and encouragement! She walked us through the entire process... and made it easy and fun.
We married in Playa Hermosa on the beach at sunset, birds chirping, waves crashing, monkeys playing in the trees above. It was magical and breath-taking! Meghan helped us pick the perfect venue, caterer, DJ, musician, officiator, etc. Catalina, her designer, helped us bring together all of the details such as flowers, table arrangements, lighting, etc. Both of these women are lovely, grounded, creative and kind. By the time we were finished planning, I felt like they could finish my sentences. It felt like they were childhood friends, and frankly, I fell in love with both of them!
I simply could not say enough good things about Mil Besos and our experience. I highly recommend you contact Meghan immediately. If you are the least bit curious... go for it! Just contact her and see if it's a good fit for you. You will be so grateful and happy that you did. Your love and union deserves to be celebrated!! Let Mil Besos bring your intentions and vision to life. They will help you create (not only) the wedding of your creams, they will help you create a vacation/honeymoon/experience of a life-time.
In the words of our friends and family that attended our celebration.... Best wedding ever!!
From the first meeting to when the last bite had been eaten, Megan kept us apprised of everything that was going on.
She made everything absolutely AMAZING!!!
Peggy + Jason
My fiance and I got engaged in March of 2018 and decided shortly thereafter we wanted to do a destination wedding in Costa Rica. I reached out to a ton of wedding planners in Costa Rica and as soon as I received a response from Meghan I wanted to hire her! She was immediately so helpful, so knowledgeable and made the daunting task of planning a wedding abroad seem easy. We set up a Skype call and she helped us narrow down 3-4 venues to look at. Fast forward later and we booked Pangas Beach Club as our venue for December 2019.
Meghan put is in contact with all of the best vendors. Meghan's team is also amazing to work with! I worked with Cata on the florals and design aspects. Cata was always available by email, phone, text, etc. She really understood the vision I had for the wedding and made my design dreams a reality.
My guests worked with Arlene to book their hotels, airport transportation, etc. Arlene was super responsive and my guests all had wonderful things to say about how helpful she was in booking their plans.
Kristina was my day-of coordinator and she was so cool to work with. She really put me at ease and made me feel relaxed on my wedding day. She was super on top of things and such a boss.
Meghan is so knowledgeable about weddings in general, not to mention her specialized knowledge of all things Costa Rica. There wasn't a single question I had that Meghan couldn't answer for me. Her team was simply amazing. The wedding day went EXACTLY as planned with about 90 guests attending.
Everything from the beginning to the end was seamless and an absolute blast. If you are considering a destination wedding, do not hesitate and book Meghan as your planner! Meghan and her team truly made my destination wedding dreams come true. Thank you Mil Besos Costa Rica!!!
Tiffani + Jeff
If you’re eloping, hire this team. They are THE BEST. They’re very experienced and intuitively know what you need. Their network of vendors is vast and adores working with them. You know they’re a great company with solid character when their reputation among vendors is also 5 stars.
I don’t know that I can adequately convey how absolutely wonderful Meghan and Sol were throughout the entire process of planning and executing our destination elopement.
Sol was our wedding coordinator on our BIG day who I felt an immediate connection with. It was like having a best friend with me every step of the way. Everything came together splendidly with her talents, patience, organizational prowess, and impeccable design.
Our elopement went off without a glitch and because of you all. We were able to relax and enjoy the day. To say it was a perfect day is a vast understatement.
We just got back last week from the most amazing experience and I have Meghan to thank for it. With her help we had the perfect intimate ceremony but also hotels that suited our style, activities with the best ever guides, and reliable drivers.
We were able to just enjoy and not have any of the typical stress involved with travel - or a wedding!!! I’ve seen my friends go through stressful wedding planning and I’m so happy we decided to go on this adventure just for us. We just celebrated this past weekend with friends and family at home and surprised them with our announcement! Meghan even prepared with our photographer to have a sneak peek of photos ready for our party at home.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Meghan is wonderful! From the very beginning of the planning process all the way through to the end of trip—-WONDERFUL!
I had a clear vision of what I wanted for our elopement. Initially, I was a bit apprehensive about planning a vacation and wedding that would take place in another country and have the vision that I was going for. However, that went away right after my first conversation with Meghan. I do project management for a living. So, I’m big on the finer details, communication and follow up and staying within an established timeline and budget. This far exceeded my expectations! Every detail was covered, every question or concern was addressed and the communication and follow up was outstanding! And importantly was very respectful of our budget. We were provided with various options for how our vacation and wedding could be put together so that we stayed within our budget. We eloped; however, I still had the fun and excitement of picking out wedding decor, flowers, dinner menu, photographer..,etc. Meghan welcomed ideas that I had and she was great about providing recommendations as well.
Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be and more! Many, many thanks to everyone who had a part in making our vacation and wedding day oh so special!
Everyone was so personable and professional. Meghan, Heidi (The Westin) Sylvia (Photographer), all of the hotel/resort employees (Arenal Springs Hotel and Spa and The Westin- Playa Conchal), Mistico Hanging Bridge Tour employees and CR transportation... they all made us feel special; not just on our wedding, but over the course of the entire trip! I can not say enough kind words!
It’s been 2 weeks since we returned from our trip and we are still on cloud 9!
Maria + Greg
What can I say but amazing! We decided to do a small wedding that included our kids only as we were blending families.
Meghan took care of every detail and was so flexible in changing dates when we had to make adjustments.
We were married on the beach at the Westin Guanacaste and it was simply breathtaking. Even though it was a small group of 6 we always felt as special as a larger wedding. Flowers food officiant photographer the set up on the beach.
Everything was perfection. I highly recommend Meghan and her group for your special occasion.
Carmen + Collin
I was totally thrilled when I came across Mil Besos last year. I am not a planner myself, so I was relieved to find somebody who could plan not only my wedding but my entire wedding getaway, from the legalities to wedding vendors, hotels, and excursions. Meghan Cox was super friendly and responsive right from the start, but I guess my touch of inner-pessimism was holding out for some sort of hiccup. Well, I just returned from Costa Rica last weekend and I can tell you that throughout the entire six months of planning, through to my return home, there was not one single hiccup! During the planning stages Meghan was very knowledgeable and insightful. She took into account our wishes but made suggestions and gave lots of good advice. The wedding itself was seamless. The coordinator, hair/makeup artist, and chauffer showed up at our hotel when they were supposed to and each provided excellent service. My bouquet was beautiful and just as I had discussed with Catalina, as was the ceremony space set up next to the waterfall where we were married. Our amazing photographers met us there and followed us back to the beach after the ceremony, and my husband and I had time for a celebratory glass of wine before we made our way to the restaurant where Meghan has made us reservations. Everything just went perfectly to plan. I would highly recommend Meghan and the Mil Besos team to anyone who wants an easy, romantic wedding in beautiful Costa Rica!
Melinda & Adam
WOW I can't say enough good things! We had the most beautiful elopement ceremony last week, and from the beginning of the process, all the way till the end everything when smoothly and stress-free!
Meghan was so amazing and patient with us. We even decided to change the location of our elopement (from La Fortuna to Playa Langosta) 3 days before the planned date due to poor weather (duh, it's a rainforest--but we were hopeful for a sunny day) and she and her team made it happen!
We had the most beautiful flowers done by Jamie, who also was able to accommodate the date change and rush the delivery of flowers for us. They made a gorgeous mandala out of flowers for our ceremony in the sand because we opted out of the traditional arch. Marcelo was our officiant who was flexible with our last-minute date change and did a great job officiating our marriage, including all the legal paperwork. He made the process easy! We chose Jonathan Yonkers for photo/video and he and his team were wonderful to work with! We can't wait to see the final results!
We are so grateful that we found this team to give us such a great experience!
My husband and I decided to elope with Mil Besos after reading awesome reviews! Meghan was outstanding throughout the entire process - prompt, understanding, visionary! While I didn't see her on my wedding day (she had other weddings that same day) her assistant was so great! Everyone just showed up to our room and everything was done for me - hair, makeup, cake, photos - all amazing.
I highly recommend Mil Besos to anyone looking for a stress-free, unforgettable experience.
Melissa + Meek
Meghan Cox and her team made all of our wedding dreams come true. When Meek and I started talking about running away to paradise to get married, we weren't even exactly sure what that meant or where we wanted to go. We stumbled across the reviews for Mil Besos and decided to email Meghan and find out what they were all about. She responded to me so quickly and with so much detail I knew she was who I wanted to work with. We wanted our wedding to just be about us and our great love for each other and decided to bring 4 friends with us to share in our wedding adventure week.
Meghan and her team spent as much time and care planning our tiny wedding as they would if we were 300 people. Not a single detail was overlooked. We got married in another country, site unseen, and never felt anxious even once.
The week leading up to the wedding was the most fun we have ever had! Zip lining, white water rafting, jumping off the top of a catamaran into the ocean, beach days! All with transportation!
We chose our officiant Einar, who had the perfect vows for us. Meghan connected us with Catalina who worked all hours of the day designing the perfect table for us, it brought tears to my eyes when I saw it. She even shopped for the antique glassware I was looking for and shipped them to me in Canada. We chose Diego Solís from Stories Wedding Photography who was a dream to work with. He was young and fun and really captured our playful personalities. Chelsea, our day of coordinator, was like having a personal assistant. She knew everything I needed before I did and instantly made any wedding day jitters disappear. We had a privately catered dinner on the beach and the food was spectacular. Desiree and Juan were the perfect husband and wife catering team. Monica came to my room to do my hair and makeup and really made me look and feel like a movie star. A million thank-you's to Meghan and all the behind the scene people that helped create our dream wedding. I could write a novel.
I highly recommend Mil Besos to anyone looking for a stress-free, unforgettable experience.
Jennifer + Adam
After getting engaged, I became overwhelmed with the idea of planning a wedding. We talked about taking a trip to Costa Rica & were delighted to find out that eloping to CR was particularly easy & the dry season was fast approaching. We hit the jackpot, when we stumbled upon Mil Besos. This is when my worrying transformed into pure excitement!
Meghan Cox, our personal wedding planner, turned our anxiety into a joyful journey. She guided my fiancée & I every step of the way. Even though we were in 2 different countries, she held my hand throughout the entire process. She arranged transportation; helped us select a tremendous photographer; design a unique bouquet; choose a gorgeous ceremony location; create a personalized yet flexible itinerary; & even write/select our own vows! We had an entire week of pampering, adventure, wonderment & relaxation in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. We saw sloths, coati, iguanas, caiman, monkeys, hummingbirds, toucans, pineapple fields & volcanoes. We soaked in natural hot springs, & refreshing waters off the beautiful Pacific coast. We explored the forest from above while navigating on a private tour of hanging bridges. We ventured to the bottom of La Fortuna Waterfall & waded in the chilly pool below. We rode along the river on a guided safari; & practiced our Spanish! Stylist Paola became a friend & confidant as she assisted with my hair/makeup/nails & gown zipping! Adam & I saw each other for the 1st time in our wedding attire as I walked barefoot down the beach to where he stood waiting for me.
The beauty of Playa Conchal at sunset created the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. We ate heartily & sipped tasty beverages. We cut our cake, toasted to Pura Vida & all the planning + legal requirements were handled without having to micromanage ANYTHING! This trip was life-changing in countless ways. The largest thank you goes to you for taking our dreams & making them a reality. THANK YOU
