Real Wedding | Jennifer + Daniel | Tamarindo, Costa Rica

When Jennifer contacted me to plan her wedding, I liked her immediately. Warm, kind and confident. Jennifer wanted an intimate wedding with her closest family and friends. Classic, elegant, timeless was the style she wanted to reflect on she and Daniels’ wedding day.

Everyone who met or saw Jennifer was stunned by her beauty.  The vendors that witness many weddings secretly voted her dress the best of the year and Jennifer the most beautiful bride. Our efforts to realize the setting she dreamed of were definitely out-shined by her beauty. This was fine with me.. all eyes are supposed to be on the bride!

Deep purple Calla Lillies, ivory Roses and pale-green Hydrangeas were used in the floral details. Pura Vida Weddings is proud to present highlights of this special wedding.
