When your late grandmother was once Miss Costa Rica, that makes a destination wedding in the tropical country a bit of a no-brainer. Stephanie and Mike brought along W&E Photographie, 419 Weddings, and Embrujos, who all played a part in creating a beautiful day of celebration that doubled as one heck of a getaway. Plus, any night that ends with the entire bridal party jumping into a pool is a true winner for us!

From the photographers, W&E Photographie: Stephanie & Mike’s Reserva Conchal wedding was such an incredible end to the year. Costa Rica is just amazing in December as it is any other time of year. But besides the obvious, Steph & Mike, created a wedding that was perfectly “them” with the help of the amazing planners at 419 Weddings. Stephanie has Costa Rican heritage – fun fact, her late grandmother was Miss Costa Rica – so it was only fitting that they wed in one of the most beautiful and laid-back countries on earth.

These two lovebirds are born & bred New Yorkers and they LOVE Christmas. They actually first met dressed up in costume at Santa-Con. You’ll see this part of their story come out on the dance floor toward the end of this post. Speaking of the dance floor – these guys threw the best party. All weddings should end with the entire bridal party jumping into a pool. The end. ;) I like to describe the decor as “tropical minimalism”. The beach, hotel, and vegetation are enough decoration, but add little touches of split-leaf philodendron everywhere and it’s icing on the cake – floral bridesmaid dresses, palm trees, beach-y cocktails, a beautiful couple, and a beautiful sunset – What a way to celebrate your new life together!
