Seleah & Ethan

Beautiful beach, beautiful weather and knock-out bride!  

Ethan and Seleah had their wedding in Tamarindo at Capitan Suizo, surrounded by friends, family and their daughters (the cutest little things you've ever seen!).  Seleah's styling was perfect for a beach wedding.  Fitted mermaid dress, long flowing loose curls, soft glowy make-up complete with a floral crown.  

Photographer Toh Gouttenoire (as usual) did an amazing job of capturing the beauty of Tamarindo at dusk and the specialness of Ethan & Seleah's day.

Best wishes to them both!!




Mary & Serban

Congratulations to Mary & Serban on their beautiful, love-filled celebration!

Mary had a gorgeous, vintage style theme -- simple make-up, fabulous dress by Beholden (Anthropologie's wedding line) and completed with a birdcage veil. 
We're always gone by the time the celebration starts, but once again, Jonathan Yonkers' video captures the entire celebration and made me feel like I didn't miss a second.  Serban's reaction to Mary's entrance was the best part!  Awww.....

Soft and Natural Shimmery Make-Up

Here's a few super soft, natural make-up inspiration photos.   Perfect for a tropical beach wedding here in Costa Rica!

Adriana & Eric

We met with Adriana ahead of time for her hair and make-up trial and from the very start, it was obvious that this wedding was going to be beautiful, romantic and stylish. 

Adriana is Costa Rican but met Eric in New York, where they were both living.  They decided to have their nuptials here in Costa Rica at Reserva Conchal.  It was wonderful to get to spend some time with her two beautiful sisters, friends and mom as we got them dolled up for the beachfront ceremony.

Mary & Tom

Congratulations to Mary & Tom on their romantic elopement at Capitan Suizo in Tamarindo.  Despite the dark thundering clouds that were threatening to roll in right at wedding time, they had a beautiful, intimate ceremony -- no rain!

Edible Art

This is totally off the topic of beauty, but we recently did a wedding and the cake was just so gorgeous that I had to take some pics and post them here. It was a spectacular double layer cake with white frosting and what I thought were real orchids. But come to find out, they were not real, they were sculpted frosting.  

Tell me that's not gorgeous?!?

It was made by Victoria Zoch.  To see more of her of beautiful works of art - check her out on Facebook.
