Austin and I met through mutual friends after both graduating from Florida State University. We instantly became best friends who love the outdoors! Hence how we chose our wedding destination for Costa Rica. Austin grew up traveling to Costa Rica with his dad for fishing trips, so it was the obvious choice for us.
We had 70 of our closest friends and family in attendance which made for the most incredible memories. We rented houses and had events leading up to the wedding for extra family and friend time with everyone, my favorite part! The wedding was everything we had hoped for. My brother hired a painter from New Orleans to paint EVERYONE at the reception (and he didn’t miss a single person)! Then I surprised everyone (including Austin) with a Costa Rican Carnival, which was a hit, local dancers and music parade and interactions.
I LOVED my wedding dress – and the best part about it was that it travels well, no wrinkles!
