Whitney and Andrew may look like models in a wedding magazine but I assure you, they are a real life bride and groom, a gorgeous couple dressed to the nines in the magical setting of Punto de Vista and Manuel Antonio beach. And that stunning sunset? 100% natural. Amazingly, they are from the beautiful island of Bermuda yet they chose our little Paradise of Costa Rica for their wedding celebration. And from all accounts, their Bermudian friends and family fell head over heels with the land of Pura Vida. Whitney created her own bouquet out of silk flowers and rhinestone pins. Lovely! How breathtaking is this portrait of Whitney? We held the ceremony on the top floor of Punto de Vista, which offers jaw-dropping vistas of the Pacific Ocean. White with pops of red were the colour scheme. The couple made these hilarious programs about being a guest at a wedding. Too funny!! We created a waterfall of lights outlined with soft fabric for the ceremony altar. Cylinders with red petals and floating candles decorated the altar area. Ladies, be sure you have a great manicure for those ring shots. Love how Whitney had silver sparkles on her ring finger nails. Twilight fans will recognize the quote as Edward’s toast to his bride, Bella, in the movie. Whitney is a huge Twilight fan and had A Thousand Years as the theme song for the wedding – her bridal party record their own version for the walk down the aisle! To create the ethereal, romantic feel of the Twilight wedding, we placed lace overlays atop grey silk shantung tablecloths. Floating candles and votives framed a pillar candle sitting in a ring of airy baby’s breath. Strings of Christmas lights created a magical feel for the dinner. Although we’d used the same area for the ceremony, the lighting and addition of dinner tables totally transformed the deck. As each guest had ordered a different main course, we had a specific seating plan to facilitate the dinner service. Rather than a typical tent card for guest seating, we created a band with the guest’s name backed by lace. Practical and pretty! Whitney and Andrew’s first dance to A Thousand Years. Felicidades Whitney and Andrew! We wish you a thousand years of happiness. Huge thanks to Funkytown Photography for the creative and beautiful photos.
