If you’re looking to plan a destination wedding, honeymoon or vacation you MUST visit Paradisus Playa Conchal Resort in Costa Rica. We recently had the pleasure of planning a wedding in Costa Rica and were lucky enough to stay at this 5 star resort. (yes, we love our job) The customer service is was outstanding and we were truly given the royal treatment. This eco-friendly wonderland is nestled between lush forests and the beautiful beaches of North Pacific Riviera. This extraordinary destination sprawls across 2,400 amazing acres that are filled with world-class eco-friendly entertainment and unrivaled resort luxury. Picture this backdrop for your big day and wedding weekend – a stunning collection of lavish Suites centered around an expansive lagoon-style pool which are accented by beautiful gardens, thatch-roofed cabanas and spectacular ocean and forest views. Your guests will love you for providing a resort that boasts a championship golf course, world-class cuisine in an array of international restaurants, a boutique spa and health club and an abundance of location-inspired tropical activities including an array of sports, and professional entertainment nightly. The bonus – this resort is all-inclusive and located 45 minutes from Guanacaste International Airport. This might seem far, but for a world-class resort such as this, no one will mind. Plus the drive is muy bonita!

As a fashion stylist I am constantly on the hunt for unique accessories to use in photo shoots and introduce to brides. One of my favorite finds is San Francisco-based Ossai. Every bride wants their look to be their own and to make a statement on the big day. Customized accessories are one of the best ways to do so. Ossai offers a variety of bridal accessories including headbands, headpieces, garters, and belts made of high-quality fabrics and materials such as silk, lace, and Swarovski crystals. You can find a selection of unique pieces at Neiman Marcus Downtown in the bridal salon or customize your own – they have 48 different fabrics/colors to choose from. Most designs range from $200-$500. ~SQ

One of photographer Rebecca Lorrine’s newest endeavors is the unique FotoFavor. Essentially both a photo and party favor wrapped into one, FotoFavor is a photobooth with no walls that allows you and your guests to create fun memories right there and then! No more sticky seats or a claustrophobic box and a real live photographer with high quality equipment and lots of personality! Each host receives a 4×6 book with all FotoFavors and the digital files. Upon request they’ll even upload them to our Facebook page for you to tag your friends. Before your event they’ll design a custom template incorporating the theme and including the date, occasion, logos, anything! In addition to your theme-inspired template they’ll provide props and personality at no extra cost!
