Costa Rica inspiration shoot

categories Ceremony & Reception, Details + Decor, Flowers + Greenery

We love spreading the travel bug around, so what better time than on a Friday morning to get you thinking, Costa Rica! If you’re a soon-to-be-Mrs. that’s considering a destination wedding, consider Costa Rica (you’ll see why in just a sec), and consider hiring the talent behind this inspiration shoot: Comfort Studio for your amazing photos + Four Winds Weddings for everything else. Really, they’ve got it all covered. Check out their take on what what a modern destination wedding could be. Also, we spy a few pretty air plants in this organic decor!

We used a very natural palette to highlight the raw organic materials used for decor. Eco-friendly rustic chic elements were used for every detail. Seasonal flowers, twine, recycled glass, coffee paper, driftwood, local hardwood, leather, and even stones were paired, and the end result was both earthy and opulent.

An oversized dining table layered with many textural changes in organic materials, refines the tablescape and blends to it’s surroundings. Typical dining chairs were replaced with streamlined benches made of 100% teak.

Keeping the focus on the tropical surroundings, chic lounge furniture, pillow seating and teak serving trays created a tempting, gathering space for sunset.

Next plane to Costa Rica? We want in! Ladies, thank you so much for sharing your amazing talents with us!

  1. I love her necklace, by any chance, do you know who designer is? also adore the table decor, love the natural elements.

  2. The simplicity of the decor really makes it go a long way! For it being a shoot with only 2 people who aren’t super dressed up, it was still very ineresting! Though the air plant coming out of the centerpiece was slightly too “spider-like” for me!! haa

  3. beautifully done. even though it’s only an inspiration shoot, it still feels so heartfelt!
    *and i loved the little LEAVENWORTH shout out! :)
