Sara & BJ are both busy lawyers in the heart of Manhattan. They wanted to let their hair down, relax, and dance the night away with their nearest and dearest for the big day. So they opted for a destination wedding in sunny Costa Rica. They chose sunny Tamarindo to say “I do,” and the picture-perfect Hacienda Pinilla was a lovely venue for there over 120 guests.
Sara wore super cute blue shoes for her something blue. Their friend Abby designed the darling invites. BJ created the fun crossword puzzle that went with the playful and colourful program. BJ’s mom created the custom tags and bags that were provided to all the guests. The lovely flowers gave each table and napkin that “picked from the garden” feel. The table numbers were simple, but perfectly elegant glass wine bottle filled with Costa Rica beach sand. The sweet “Señor” and “Señora” signs on the back of BJ’s and Sara’s chairs provided that destination wedding, local touch. Larger than life blackboard was created to showcase the seating chart and was written by hand for a more personalized feel. And keeping up with the colorful vibe of the day, the bridesmaid dresses were not actual “bridesmaid dresses,” but they were so perfect for a destinations wedding with the cool, flowy fabric. Since they could be styled in any way, each bridesmaid added her personal twist and the dresses looked great on all the girls.
Whoever says it is hard to plan a Jewish destination wedding hasn’t seen Sara & BJ’s wedding yet. They brought over their Rabbi to marry them and their chuppah was beautiful with a backdrop to the ocean.
Mazel tov, Sara and BJ!
