Real Weddings – Yvonne & David at LOS SUEÑOS, MARRIOTT


A little bit of rain didn’t dampen Yvonne and David’s spirits or their colorful wedding celebration at Los Suenos Marriott near Jaco! El Velo Photography captured all the bright fun for us to enjoy here.

Orange roses created a bright contrast to the bridesmaids’ cobalt blue dresses.

Due to the rain, the ceremony was held on the Sandia terrace overlooking the pool and gardens which still made for a beautiful setting.

Working with a white canvas of Chiavari chairs and linens, we brought in hits of orange through the napkins and flowers for an understated tropical vibe.

Seashells were found on the frames with the table numbers as well as scattered on the table arrangements.

Round mirrors were a base on which cylinders with clear stones and submerge orchids and calas with floating candles were set. The mirrors reflected the water and candle light, imbuing the room with even more soft lighting.

LED panels were set around the rooms to uplight the walls, creating a more intimate, romantic feel to the room. The new Carara room at the Marriott has a wall of windows and features wood and natural stone throughout as well as lower ceilings than it’s other ballrooms, making it a warm space .

Cannot say enough about including uplighting to any space, as it really adds a totally different dimension.
