Though Lindsay and Chino live here in Costa Rica, Lindsay’s mom was trying to plan everything from the States. After some stressful times going it alone, they realized they needed the help of a professional. Weddings Costa Rica was happy to step in and make their vision a reality. Here’s a sneak peek at the day by the uber talented Jonathan Yonkers.…
The American bride and Tico groom married in a ceremony surrounded by their friends and family from the U.S. and Costa Rica at Hotel Sugar Beach, a gorgeous spot on a secluded beach just outside of Playa Flamingo.
We received the following letter from Lindsay’s mom, Karen, and boy, it brought a tear to our eyes! Knowing you’ve had a positive impact on a momentous moment of a family’s life – well, it doesn’t get any better than that…

Words cannot express how much we appreciate all you and your staff did to make Lindsay and Chino’s wedding the most memorable event of a lifetime. From the very beginning to the very end, you created exactly what we imagined. To say we are thrilled is an understatement.
In the beginning I was reluctant to hire a wedding planner, but I had no idea how much work was involved and how difficult it would be from the United States to Costa Rica to get details taken care of. We are so glad we decided to employ the services of Weddings Costa Rica.
From our initial meeting with you, your attention to detail and your ability to envision what Lindsay and Chino wanted was exquisite. You were able to draw out ideas from Lindsay and I by your suggestions, which helped us both get a visual of what you were envisioning for the wedding. You stayed within our initial budget, but gave suggestions of little things which would enhance the overall look for minimal cost to us. Your suggestions proved to be some of the most beautiful effects.
As we watched you turn Hotel Sugar Beach into a wedding wonderland, it was such a blessing to have that peace of mind and the confidence that you had everything under control. For a Mom, this was huge. And Lindsay’s Dad can’t stop saying it was perfect, that you handled the wedding as an experienced professional.
Your promptness in answering my almost daily emails from the States with all my many, many questions, I can’t thank you enough. You calmed my fears and gave me the ability to enjoy the wedding and sit back to enjoy our daughter’s wedding day.
Our guests are still talking about how beautiful everything was and how much they enjoyed the wedding. Everyone was impressed with your creativity and how every detail from the largest to the tiny things were all tied together. Everything came together quickly and organized as the day progressed. The vendors arrived early in the morning and with precision began their work. I really cannot think of anything we were disappointed with.
I would recommend Weddings Costa Rica to anyone who wants peace of mind and stress-free wedding planning. I couldn’t have done it without you.
