Classic Tropical Destination Wedding in Costa Rica

October 9, 2020 | riley

Kara and Kevin wanted to embrace the beauty of Costa Rica in their tropical destination wedding. Boy, did they nail it! With the help of Junebug member and planner Mil Besos Costa Rica, the couple opted for a simple vibe with touches of boho accents to not interfere with Costa Rica’s natural charm.

They opted for a simple light pink color palette with small pops of orange, bouquets of tropical florals put together by Flores de Campo, and a reception complete with twinkle lights and bamboo seating. We’re so thankful photographer and Junebug member White Diamond was there to capture the essence of the day. Keep scrolling to see the epitome of a timeless wedding. 

The Couple:

Kara and Kevin

The Wedding:

Andaz Papagayo, Papagayo Peninsula, Costa Rica

Simple Tropical Wedding Vibes

I wanted to go for a beachy, classy, boho vibe. It was so beautiful. The ceremony was simple with just a circular, tropical, floral arrangement as the centerpiece. The tall trees and architecture of Andaz complimented the simplicity of it. The reception was everything I wanted and more. It was at the Andaz Beach House, so the guests were able to enjoy the low trees right by the water. It was lit with twinkling lights throughout the beach house with just the perfect type of boho decor.

A Tubular Guest Book

My husband is a surfer, so we got a custom-built surfboard for people to sign as our guestbook for our reception.

A Rainy Reception

The best part of the day was when it started to rain during the reception. We had 90’s R&B love songs playing, and there was a moment where my husband and I walked away to overlook everyone. It started to rain, but we noticed everyone stayed out on the dance floor. We joined them for the best rainfall of our lives.
