GRAHAM & EVER ~ DESTINATION: COSTA RICA 03.18.11
Graham & Ever decided that their dreams would come to life in beautiful and enchanting Santa Teresa, Costa Rica where the waves are epic for surfing and the relaxed beach atmosphere is ideal for unforgettable wedding celebrations.
Casa Capitan which boasts the largest and most extravagant house in Santa Teresa, and that’s an understatement, makes it the most amazing venue for quaint weddings of 50 guests or less.
The ceremony took place on the beach at sunset, followed by the wedding reception which was a short stroll up the sandy path through the palms to the house and nestled by the infinity pool.
The hanging lights and votives mixed perfectly with the surrounding palm fronds and myriad of strategically arranged Cali lily, orchid, and hydrangea arrangements, all done in the corresponding colors of white and green.

In lieu of wedding favors, guests signed custom made coasters and dropped the coaster into a bowl for the charity of their choice, including a local school, an environmental cause, and an animal shelter. {Which by the way, is just a magnificent idea!}

Congratulations to Graham & Ever, may they have a long and joyous life journey together!!
