Recently we had the pleasure of planning a wedding out of the country. Once we decided where we were headed the fun began! Of course in true Clearly Classy form we wanted to create the most memorable and fun experience that we possibly could! For this couple a destination wedding was ideal. Spending and extended period of time with their nearest and dearest was what they were looking for in their wedding weekend! And that they did!

Everyone flew into San Jose, Costa Rica which is a city of about 300,ooo in the center of the country. From there the guests hopped on a bus to their destination, the beautiful Los Suenos Resort. This is on the East Coast of the country and is very close to Jaco which is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the world.
This country is rich in culture, pride and beauty. The folks there care very much about visitors being welcomed and taken care of in a similar southern hospitality that we are accustomed to. Costa is a wonderful cost effective place to take your guests if you are considering a wedding out of the country.
The first arranged plans for the guests came on Day 2. This was a zip line tour through the rain forest and it was not only an exhilarating experience but offered gorgeous views of the city and ocean below! Such a great time, this is a must do for your guests!!
Later that evening it was time for the rehearsal dinner! We chartered a bus down to Manuel Antonio for a catamaran sunset dinner cruise. This was a wonderful way to kick off the weekend!
The next day began early with preparations and fun! The ladies were treated to a spa visit and the guys lounged around the pool! Hair and make-up began and the anticipation started to build!
The ceremony was gorgeous and it was held on the private beach of the Los Suenos Beach Club. Very little decor was needed to make this spot stunning!
The reception was held at a restaurant in walking distance from the ceremony site, El Galeon. It sits right above the yacht club and the views were amazing!! Everyone celebrated the marriage of Justin and Becca in true Costa Rica fashion!
We love you guys and wish you all the best, we are so honored to be apart of your special week!!
Thank you to Costa Rica Dreammakers for assisting with all of the plans and accommodations.
