Colorful Afghan-American Wedding at Zephyr Palace
A destination Costa Rica wedding in for a beautiful couple at Zephyr Palace, one of Weddings Costa Rica’s favorite venues for amazing celebrations.
An explosion of culture, color, and love – to name a few terms that perfectly sum up the experience at Susan and Dominic’s beautiful dream-come-true wedding day. From traditional American customs to the combination of British and Afghani traditions, this wedding was a true spectacle of love and life. There was no better way to celebrate the coming together of two different worlds than this day, and we have the pictures to prove it.
The festivities took place at the stunning Zephyr Palace in the central pacific of Costa Rica. The venue overlooks the majesty of the Pacific Ocean eleven-hundred feet high, making it the perfect location for dreams come true.
The day began with Susan and Dominic spending time with their very excited and dressed-to-impress bridal parties, with hair and makeup executed perfectly by the talented Xinia Chacon.
Wearing elegant seafoam green dresses, the bridesmaids carried simple bouquets decorated with simple pink and white roses, accented with green leaves and stems. The bride carried a bouquet with the same premise, only more bodacious. All flowers and bouquets were provided and crafted by Stylos y Flores.
The room was decorated simply with lush vegetation that complimented the bridesmaid’s bouquets and the seafoam green color scheme. Lily’s tied to the guest’s chairs and hanging above the couple as they said their I-do’s added elegant charm and flare you can only find amid the luscious vegetation of Costa Rica.
The ceremony took place with views overlooking the Pacific behind the couple. Susan’s father places a green belt around her waist, a lucky color in Afghani culture, for good fortune.
They said yes! The guests move to the reception hall, where under starry string lights, surrounded by flowers and candlelight, they can celebrate the newlyweds. A gold, white and green color scheme rings true throughout the hall.
Various shapes and prisms accent the candles as centerpieces on every table. They are also complemented by flowers and greenery.
The festivities continue with dancing and music, provided by A-Class Productions. The bride’s cousins then perform traditional Afghani dances to commemorate the wedding. With colorful dresses and movements with flare, it was a beautiful way to honor the couple as man and wife.
This delicious and adorable cake was provided by the lovely team at Mariposa Bakery!
The couple looks at each other in a mirror for the first time as a married couple, which is another beautiful Afghani wedding tradition.
The couple and their guests enjoy a spectacular firework show to end their magical day.
