Five years ago on May 25th, my husband and I said “I do” on Playa Conchal beach in Costa Rica. Eighty of our nearest and dearest from the US and afar joined us for a weekend of catamaran sunset cruises, lounging at the volcanic mud baths, surfing the world famous Costa Rican breaks and practicing yoga on the beach. We had three nights of amazing parties with local musicians and deejays providing the perfect music for each event.
On our wedding day it decided to rain, but that’s the risk you take having a wedding in May, Playa Conchal beach is an amazing setting in Costa Rica. Luckily the rain was not too heavy and stopped right before our ceremony began. After we danced, drank, ate and enjoyed ourselves all night long. It was amazing to have all of our family and friends together in paradise to celebrate one of the most important days of our lives.
Today my Cousin Jay and his bride, Mariana, fly into Costa Rica to recite their wedding vows on Tamarindo beach. They and all their guest are staying in a few hotels along Tamarindo beach. I have been planning their wedding with them for over a year and am excited to see all of our efforts come together this Friday, May 24th. A total of 77 guests will be celebrating the beautiful couple throughout the week. Wednesday everyone will head to Rincon de la Vieja (a volcano an hour north of Liberia International airport) to horseback ride, ziplining or canopy tour, go rafting on the white water rapids and cliff repel. Late Friday afternoon the ceremony will take place and will be presided over by a shaman. After we will dance and party into the night with the rock band, Local Legends.
A wedding is one of the most important events of your life. Planning for your wedding should be a fun, stress fee and exciting experience for both you and your fiancée. I had a wonderful time planning my wedding and a great time planning my cousin’s.I enjoy planning weddings, events and fundraisers so much that I decided to open my own wedding and event planning company, http://www.tropicaleventsbyjamie.com.
