Erika was not your typical bride (check out those shoes – wowza!) and so, her wedding was not the typical affair. Armed with a wacky sense of humour, a razor-sharp intellect and a sense of adventure, Erika brought together an intimate yet diverse group of very interesting family and friends for a celebratory weekend at Villa Caletas this March.
The weather held out, blessing us with a sunny and bright afternoon. Working with a cheerful orange, fuschia and dendrobium green colour palette, we added in gold accents to give a bit more ‘formality’ to the feel – and given the opulence of the surroundings, it fit together perfectly. Here are some images…enjoy!
Dendrobium orchids, hydrangeas and callas in beautiful harmony for her bouquet.
For the reception, we made each table arrangement a bit different from the other, riffing on a theme you could say. Branches, Fuji mums, orange roses, orchids and crystals combined to create an elegant yet tropical feel to the room.
Here’s the set up in the daylight.
And at night…
Custom-made menus reflecting the reception colours perfectly. The only blip to the day was the wind (unusual for the Jaco area at that time of year) which blew out candles and sent the napkins floating about the room (hence the butter knife anchoring down the menu).
Lovely handmade orchids crown the cake.
And how better to close out a fantastic day than spectacular fireworks in the rainforest!
Congratulations again to Erika and Jeremy! It was a pleasure!!
