Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
Event Planning Services
Do I really need a wedding planner? We hear that all the time. And while a DIY destination event in Costa Rica is certainly possible, we feel that your time and effort are better spent planning the rest of your trip, helping your guests with their travel questions, and picking out the perfect dress. It takes a lot to coordinate an event from afar without a person on the ground here where everything will take place. And it can get pretty complicated dealing with things like language barriers with your vendors, differences in service expectations in a foreign country, and even things that should be simple - like payment. Currency exchange, foreign wire transfers, and navigating all the strange new tax laws here in Costa Rica can take the joy out of what should be the most joyous occasion of your life. Let us handle the stressful parts so you can just enjoy the ride. No matter what type of event you're planning, we can help you reach your goals and create an unforgettable experience for everyone in your group.
Villa & Hotel Weddings
Some of the world's most beautiful beaches can be found right here in Costa Rica and so many of our clients come here to get married just for that reason. There's nothing like tying the knot with your toes in the sand and a backdrop of the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. We can help you find the best beach location (no, they're NOT all created equal!) and coordinate everything from bringing in chairs for your guests to sit on to arranging catering services for a killer cocktail hour as the sun goes down. Festive live music can set the right tone, and a talented photographer who knows how best to capture that back-lit sunset shot of the two of you can make the difference!
Costa Rica might technically still be considered a "developing country", but you wouldn't know it by some of the seriously world-class private villas, and luxury hotels available for your event. We can help you pick a location that will work well with your group's size and dynamics as well as everything else down to the last detail. One of the best parts of this job is getting to call these jaw-dropping venues our office for the day as we work with our talented vendors to bring your wedding day to life. Each wedding and group are unique, so it's important to take time to find the perfect venue - and we can help you evaluate the options. We think it's the most important decision you'll make, besides who to take the plunge with!!
Same Sex Weddings
We are thrilled that every day, this tiny country of Costa Rica inches closer to legalizing same sex marriage. On the current legislative path, in May 2020 same sex couples can start legally registering marriage paperwork here. But you don't have to wait for the new law to take effect to get down here and start celebrating the next phase of your lives together. We have been privileged to plan many same sex wedding celebrations here over the last few years. Couples will take care of their legal paperwork at home and then come here for a symbolic ceremony, epic party, and of course incredible photos to last a lifetime. So, start working on your guest list and ask for time off at work - your dream wedding with the love of your life is here waiting for you. And we can't wait to help you plan it!
Many of our clients choose to tie the knot privately, in the most intimate of wedding celebrations. We can arrange everything you need to slip away into paradise for your private and romantic wedding. We'll find you the perfect officiant who will get your ceremony just right, an unforgettable location, the right bouquet, and a top notch photographer to capture it all. We can customize your elopement package any way you want - it can be the simplest of events, or include some fun extras like a couple's massage, champagne at the beach, or a mini wedding cake. We can even handle your travel arrangements so you don't have to worry about a thing besides getting yourselves to Costa Rica. We love elopements and would be honored to help you plan yours!
