Imagine the wedding of a professional baseball player and a producer for Oprah. Amazing, right? Well, daydream no more as here is the gorgeousness that was Bo and Neha’s celebration of love and laughter. Enjoy! A rehearsal dinner on the the lawn of the Los Suenos Marriott kicked off the festivities. We went for bright, tropical colours and flowers in bamboo vases. Dinner was held under an open-aired tent, as we were in December and transitioning from Rainy to Dry season. Luck was with us as the day and night was perfectly gorgeous. Neha’s bouquet of white hydrangeas, orchids and lisianthus was so romantic and soft, providing a neutral palette for her stunning red and gold jewels. Letterpressed invitations are always an elegant touch. And I love how the yellow pops against the grey! Neha was truly a princess on her wedding day – how beautiful! Zephryr Palace’s stunning poolside terrace was the setting for the ceremony. The bright yellow rose petals added a pop of colour against the grey sky. A little rain fell but nothing could dampen anyone’s spirits! Weddings in the tropics are hot, so having fans for guests is always a great idea. Making them play double-duty as a uber-helpful program is pure genius. Neha and Bo tagged their wedding as BoHa so we played on the theme by having the signature cocktail be a Boho Mojo. The wedding ceremony was a fusion of Eastern and Western wedding traditions. The entrance-way at Zephyr Palace is a majestic spot for photos. Luckily, the rains stopped for cocktail and photo hour! Light grey linen tablecloths provided a neutral backdrop for the bright yellow napkins and florals in white, orange and yellow. Keeping with the global travellers theme, the seating cards were small luggage tags tacked on a reproduction of a 16th Century map. Bindi are the little jewels Indian ladies attach onto their foreheads. Our Bindi Bar was a huge hit with guests who got their Bollywood on. Photos of relatives, some dearly departed, were placed at the guest book table as a way to include and honour them. Guests wrote their best wishes on reproductions of old Costa Rican postcards, another aspect of the traveller theme woven into the wedding. Fireworks! Everyone was amazed by the pyrotechnics.What a couple, what a celebration – a home run for sure! Felicidades to Neha and Bo for many more wonderful travels and celebrations to come.
Many thanks to A Brit & A Blonde for the photos!
