Well, it’s official folks- we’ve got El Nino on our hands and that means more dry days than wet ones for the remainder of 2012 here in beautiful Costa Rica. The Rainy Season (which runs May through November officially) is going to be one of the driest we’ve seen for a while and also, one of the hottest. However, if you’re on the Caribbean coast, the bad news is a 20% INCREASE in rainfall and the danger of floods.
If your wedding in Costa Rica is within the rest of 2012, plan on having a rain back up (it’s still going to rain). Consider including fans for your guests at the ceremony and maybe even chilled towels, since few wedding locations here have air conditioning. Serving cold water pre-ceremony will help keep guests cool and hydrated.
Big thanks to Comfort Studio for the fabulous shots!

We got ourselves a hat trick on Friday the 13th! What’s a hat trick? Those of you who grew up watching Hockey Night in Canada (like myself) will know it’s when a player scores three goals in one game. Three weddings, three blogs all on the same day. And all at the same fab location, Punto de Vista, and all shot by the wonderful A Brit and a Blonde. What are the odds?
So, without further ado, to the eye candy!!
First up, the very stylish wedding of Katherine and Manuel on WedLuxe, the deluxe of the luxe wedding blogs. I’ve been dreaming of having a wedding on here for a while and am thrilled that this is the first Costa Rica wedding featured there! And what a wedding! Although it rained the entire day, it didn’t dampen their spirits or the sophisticated fantatickness of the swank soiree. Check out our little ole lighting creation with hundreds of crystals over rods of twinkle lights (props to Roberto at Eventos Boadicea for once again making my wild imaginings into reality). It was hands-down gorgeousness all-round, from the Amsale dress to Katherine’s bouquet to one smart looking groom in a Hugo Boss tux.
Kristi and David’s wedding on Destination I Do also featured some serious bling in the decor as well as a number of very sweet DIY touches the bride added. Who can resist cupcakes with toppers featuring photos of the couple’s kitty? Too adorable! Great fun.
And Nita and Marc’s initmate wedding has the folks over at Far and Far Away all a flutter with it’s sweet lil details, like the uber cute A M O R pillows!
Felicidades again to our lovely couples – Katherine & Manuel, Kristi & David and Nita & Marc. An absolute pleasure and honour to work with each and every one of you. Thank you.
