Vintage Magic in the Tropics

One of my biggest wedding pet peeves is people who have beach-themed weddings on the beach! WTF?!?! I really can't see another white and blue beach themed destination wedding. I just that that it shows little to no creativity or inspiration. I was starting to feel a little depressed by my prospects then... I saw this wedding!

I adore the moody feel of this wedding. I don't particularly love any of the details but I do love the way it makes me feel to look at the images. I think a lot of the feel comes from the way the photographs were taken and processed so...

I followed the trail and found this other wedding:


I love this reception set up! I love the lace overlay on the tables and the gorgeous white orchids. It has the exact feel I want to have at my wedding. I guess the moral of the story is you can have a whimsical, vintage, intimate wedding in Costa Rica.

  1. these photos are gorgeous. awesome that you've been able to peg a style, and more importantly, a feeling that you love. it will really help bring your idea to fruition!

  2. Thanks Dana! I agree. Sometimes it gets hard to stay focused on what you want when you see how easy a cookie cutter wedding would be... But i think in the end it will all pay off :D

  3. Hi,This was refreshing. I wished I could read every post, but i have to go back to work now... But I'll return.
    Costa Rica is truly a nature lover's paradise, but that does not mean that it is primitive and uncultured. The nightlife in the urban centers rivals that of any cosmopolitan city anywhere. The culture is rich in tradition and the arts and music scene in San Jose rivals that of other capital cities around the world.
