beach wedding, newlyweds, bride and groom sunset, costa rica weddingWhere do I even begin with this crazy, unique, FUN wedding? Jacqui is a dancer in a blacklight theatre company that performs the world over. Peter is a production genius and sound guru who criss-crosses the US of A working on huge productions. Not surprisingly, their wedding celebration was completely extraordinary and one of a kind. The folks over at Rock ‘n Roll Bride agreed and featured this incomparable wedding on their blog.Wedding bouquet, bridesmaid dresses, wedding dress, alternative wedding dress, white rose and hydrangea bouquetI remember when Jacqui posted the fabric for the wedding clothes from Mood (yes, the fabric fantasyland we’ve swooned over on Project Runway). I literally squealed.

    Absolutely gorgeous wedding!! Congrats!! Loving the beach, the glorious glowing set up, WOW!! I was looking to feature glowsticks in our Mauritius beach wedding, either as favours for guests or to light up our aisle with. Can I ask did you guys take yours on the plane in your luggage or did you get them in Costa Rica? Also what did you use to attach to the glowsticks in order to plant them in the sand? Thanks so much!

      Hi there.

      Thanks so much for your kind words! They brought the glowsticks with them in their suitcase and then attached them to wooden bamboo skewers. Easy peasy 🙂
