Continuing with Jinger and Calvin’s wedding celebration, we move onto the big day itself. As you can see by the smiling faces, the wedding was a fun and relaxed experience for all.
Rather than a traditional sit down wedding, Jinger and Calvin opted for a lounge setting where guests could indulge in the couple’s favourite past-time of playing games. The colour scheme of red, purple, white and black was predominate in the rental furniture, pillows and flowers. The stylized logo of the couple’s initials, reminiscent of an Infinity sign and coloured in ombre tones, was featured on customized pillows, chairs and printed items.
Inspired by Tawainese night markets, we created food stations around the lounge, complete with fabric banners and paper lanterns. The coffee bar featured different beans with tasting notes for guests to explore the famous golden bean of Costa Rica.
The ceremony colours were orange and turquoise with ombre shades. A bamboo bar for post-ceremony cocktails sits ready with striped paper straws for a festive touch.
Guests were welcomed with baskets filled with Costa Rican snacks and goodies. Each basket was handwoven by an indigenous women’s cooperative in the mountains outside of San Jose, bringing an artisan touch to the festivities whilst aiding a marginalized community and promoting an ancient handicraft. Goods that do good.

The happy couple.

Half an hour prior to the wedding ceremony, the skies opened and we had to scuttle to Plan B, the beautiful yoga loft overlooking the ocean.
We wanted to bring in a touch of an Asian theme so we opted for a bamboo canopy with paper lanterns arranged in orange ombre tones.
Chairs were adorned with ribbons graduation in ombre tones in both orange and turquoise. The piece de resistance was silk ribboning in blue and orange ombre I’d found on line. Score! Best wedding program ever was this one – one side was a computer program of the wedding itself (a program that really was a program!) and on the back, a quiz about the couple for guests to fill out while waiting for the ceremony to start. Tres fun!
