Magical Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding

Garden Weddings

Now that the excitement of Eclipse 2017 has died down, we thought we’d share this sweet pick-me-up to get Tuesday kicked off right! Maria and Brian’s California wedding was inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of our own personal faves for creative ideas. Bride Maria set to work planning it all, bringing in The Little Branch to create lush floral arrangements and Mirelle Carmichael to photograph every detail and happy moment. Congratulations, newlyweds!

Beautiful ocean views, tropical breezes, volcanoes, cloud forests, and hot springs are always ready for you, and lovingly maintained by the wonderful locals. Experiencing the best of Costa Rica while exchanging I Dos with the love of your life couldn’t be easier (or prettier) than with El Mangroove!
