Flying is the necessary evil part of vacationing for most of us.
When was the last time you stared at an Instagram photo and vowed you’d make it there one day?
There is a revival happening in the desert and I’m here to help you experience it to the fullest!
I am a huge fan of Bali.
Honeymoon planning can feel complicated and overwhelming — but it doesn't have to!
Once I decided I would get married in Costa Rica, there was no hesitation on where I wanted to spend my time after the wedding on my honeymoon.
I just returned home from Costa Rica where I married my person with our toes in the sand surrounded by our closest friends and family, and then spent some time honeymooning in the rain forest at one of the most beautiful resorts in the world.
It’s been the most amazing start to the year, but of course planning a wedding a mere 3 1/2 months after getting engaged was quite a tall order. Not only that — it was a destination wedding. For me, that meant planning an unforgettable vacation experience for 30 people I care deeply about, and wanting their time in this beautiful country to be special and meaningful as well.
So many people have asked “why Costa Rica?!”⠀
Costa Rica is my soul destination. If you’ve ever been, you can understand why. It has the highest life satisfaction in the world, and being there you can’t help but have that rub off on you.
It is also an adventure lover’s perfect playground. There is so much to do, see, and experience here, that your vacation can delight your senses in every way possible. The great thing is though, you don’t have to do all. the. things. You can also find delight in swaying in a hammock all day and watching some of the most beautiful sunsets you’ve ever seen.
I saw our friends and family enjoy the experience we created for them, and truly live PURA VIDA, even for just a few days. And my wedding? I still can’t tell you what type of flowers were in my bouquet, but I remember taking a moment towards the end of the reception to just look out and soak it all in. It was better than I hoped it would be. Without being overly sappy, it truly was the best day ever.
Pura Vida is a way of life. The literal translation is “pure life”— and you can use it as a greeting, a thank you, or just to say something is awesome. It symbolizes moving things forward and simply enjoying life. ⠀
I believe that when you visit this place their outlook on life rubs off on you and you can’t help but feel more at peace in this beautiful country. ⠀
My hope is that we introduced that to all of our guests and they felt that as well.
I’d love to do the same for you! Contact me to plan your own personal vacation or honeymoon to this amazing destination and lets make it unique and special for you and your interests.
If you are thinking about planing your own destination wedding here, I’d love to help you make this a vacation experience your guests are sure to remember.
