Jordan & Don

When you say “beach wedding”, most people think sand dollars, seashells and a fairly casual affair. Jordan and Don, however, proved that you can have a wedding on the beach and make it as luxurious as any celebration in a posh ballroom. One look at their gorgeous photos courtesy of El Velo Photography http://www.elvelophotography.com/ and you can see how elegant a beach wedding can be (and not a sea shell in sight).

Both Jordan and Don are doctors – she’s a veterinarian at a zoo and he’s a GP. Taking a cue from their professions, they had a monogram created featuring stethoscopes. This monogram was recreated as a gold sticker which we placed on the plexiglass backs of the stately Louis chairs from D’Gala dgalaevents.com to give the wedding a truly custom touch. Even their hashtag had a nod to their medical professions.

Using a colorful palette of fuchsia, bright pink and purples, the floral alchemists at Stylos y Flores http://www.stylosyflores.com/ used roses, lisianthus, orchids and eucalyptus to create lush, bright arrangements for the aisle, canopy and tables. Towering candelabras had ivy, orchids, roses, winding down them, finished off with electric candles (being on the beach we always have a refreshing breeze which makes real candles impossible). Golden pineapples made an appearance on the long tables as a tropical (yet elegant) touch. A small, unexpected element like that can really make the decor really memorable.

For the sweetheart table, our florists created an impressive backdrop with two gorgeous floral walls and an elegant chandelier. Truly a table fit for a king and queen!

Impressive white tables were interspersed with round tables draped in linens with white sequins, which danced and dazzled in the moonlight. Gold-rimmed chargers completed the look and added the little bit of bling to finish of the tables expertly.

Everything came together beautifully under a blue-hued sky. Saying their vows on the sand as the ocean gently lapped to the shores, Jordan and Don had a perfect day for their celebration. An impossibly technicolored sunset was the icing on the cake and then, dinner and dancing under the stars.

Beyond all the beauty of the setting, though, was the bride and the handsome groom. One incredibly stylish couple who were surrounded by 70 loved ones, all of whom had travelled down to Costa Rica from the USA to help them celebrate their love for each other.

What an incredible day and night it was! Felicidades to Jordan and Don. We are so honored that you chose Bahia del Sol for your wedding site and it was such a pleasure to see it all come together so beautifully!
