Non-Traditionally Tropical Puerto Viejo Elopement

September 18, 2021 | kailey

A wedding that doubles as a getaway—we’re sold. This playful Puerto Viejo elopement will inspire couples everywhere to exchange the traditional wedding ceremony for an adventurous destination celebration. From the secluded beachfront ceremony to the reception spent snorkeling, every detail made for an incredible vacation and an even better nuptial. 

Planner One Heart Event Planning and a talented team of vendors created this magical inspiration on the stunning Le Cameleon Boutique Hotel property. To enhance the existing lush greenery and ocean views, tropical floral arrangements by D’Bambu Eventos y Decoración were the perfect addition. With an eye-catching ceremony backdrop and a natural palm leaf aisle, florals truly were the main event. 

If you’re in search of unique ways to take your destination wedding to the next level, you’ve come to the right place. Get ready to be fully transported into a tropical oasis with these images captured by Junebug member Raw Shoots Photography

Photographer’s Thoughts On This Puerto Viejo Elopement

Through our Caribbean Sunrise styled shoot, we wanted to showcase the experience of traveling and getting eloped in Puerto Viejo—a slice of real paradise and ironically one of the most underrated towns for weddings. Our planning team wanted to preserve the essence of the Caribbean beach town. We had a natural palm leaf aisle, a non-traditional tropical color palette, and lots of tropical greens.
