Kyle and Judy are a travel-savvy Canadian couple who wanted an adventurous and luxurious destination wedding. For them, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica was just the place. The couple searched high and low for a villa which was modern and would accommodate all of their guests. In the end, with the help of Weddings Costa Rica, they found Punto de Vista. “It was amazing to see people walk through the gates and enter the villa,” says the bride. “[Everyone] arrived so exhausted since the trip was quite long from Canada, but you could immediately see their eyes light up. It is such a beautiful place and we feel so lucky to have been able to get married there.”

Judy got creative when it came time to decorate her dream Costa Rican wedding. “My favorite thing to do was ‘pin’ [on Pinterest.] It’s great getting ideas from other couples. My maid-of-honor found a beautiful image of a toucan and created a logo based on the image and our wedding colors of peach and grey. We also ordered gorgeous chevron runners off of Etsy. They took up a lot of space in the suitcase, but were so pretty!”

The couple kept travel plans pretty simple and left it up to their guests as to when they would arrive at the villa. “Because it was a private villa rental, everyone arrived at different times and even different days. It gave everyone a lot of flexibility to adapt their travel based on their schedules.” Overall, the couple spend five days in paradise with their nearest and dearest – all culminating in a beautiful wedding.

Kyle and Judy initially thought working with a wedding planner was out of their budget, but found Weddings Costa Rica to be much more cost effective than they had expected. It was also a tremendous help in planning a wedding from afar. The couple’s number one words of of advice for other destination wedding couples? “Have fun!”
