Amanda and Chris were referred to us by a friend of theirs who was a former bride of ours and we were absolutely thrilled to work with such a warm and wonderful couple. Extra awesome points for being fellow Canadians 😉  A fantastic couple like this had a fantastic wedding at the aptly named, Casa Fantastica. As you can see from the fab photos by fellow Canucks A Brit & A Blonde, fun and fabulousness ensued.

Destination weddings usually have a sense of playfulness and their invites set the fun tone perfectly.

Programs printed on paper bags did double-duty, holding rose petals for tossing at the end of the ceremony.

Amanda wanted an organic beach feel so we used objects that one might find washed ashore to decorate the aisle with. Antique bottles, coconuts, shells and driftwood created a unique atmosphere for the ceremony under a canopy of palm trees.

With a wedding in Manuel Antonio, you might have some furry little party crashers like this Titi Monkey. Sorry, Curious George, your names isn’t on the seating blackboard!

The reception was held at Casa Fantastica, where we created a romantic, vintage look with white Paris chairs, sand coloured linens and colourful flowers under a canopy of twinkle lights.

Amanda and Chris love to cycle so their guest book poster and custom cake topper reflected their passion to pedal.
