I just had my destination wedding at a vacation villa in Tamarindo, CR last week. I planned the whole thing myself via email and I was so impressed with all of our vendors. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. I did a whole lot of Googling to find these vendors, so I thought I would help out some future brides, by listing all of these wonderful vendors here in one place. I know I could have really used a post like this when I was planning.
Officiant: Einar Villavicencio- Professional, punctual and experienced. He's an attorney who preforms both symbolic and legal ceremonies for tourists
Photographer: Sylvia Guardia M.- Her work is beautiful. She's professional, punctual and she made a lot of great suggestions.
Flowers and Decor: Four Winds Weddings- I just used them for flowers and rental candles for the dinner table, but they offer full wedding planning services as well as decor and furniture rental. Kirsten's flower arrangements were gorgeous. They were punctual and professional.
Hair and Makeup: Maravilla Weddings- Professional, punctual and experienced. They even came out to our villa, so I didn't have to travel anywhere.
Catering: Catering Costa- Professional and punctual. We hired private chef, Jean Luc to come out to our villa. With the help of an assisant, he set up tables, chairs, cooked and served a 4 course meal and cleaned up. They also provided us with dishes, glassware, tablecloths, etc. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Best wedding meal I have ever had!
Cake: Victoria Zoch- Victoria is a true artist. Her cakes are beautiful. She makes amazing sugar flowers at a very reasonable price.
Band: Los Mojitos- Professional and punctual. They are a Latin jazz band, but they're able to play various types of popular music. They even learned a new song at my request.
