Mystic Breeze, a Nosara beach elopement styled shoot editorial we planned that turned into a real intimate elopement for Masha and David, an engaged couple who have been together for almost 10 years, prior to celebrating with their families next year. Also is featured on Ruffled Blog and finally we can show you the whole story here on our blog!
We chose Hacienda Barrigona as the venue because itself is already a hidden gem – A boutique hotel located on the Pacific Coast, hosting up to only 25 guests maximum, and it is the only property in the area that has its own access to the pristine Barrigona Beach, making it as if we had this beautiful paradise completely and exclusively to ourselves. The idea of the concept was taking boho chic to a whole new level, inspired by the travel destinations Tulum & Morocco, and of course the exoticness of our country Costa Rica. Aiming for something glamorous, delicate, relaxing, but also with a touch of something mystical, this elopement shoot combines neutral hues with the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean; dried leaves with fresh tropical florals; washed woods, raffia and wicker elements with crystal chandeliers and hand-woven macrame lamps, everything in our open-air ceremony and reception set-up. Every detail has been given thoughtful attention. For example, we wanted a a convertible gown with removable sleeves for our bride. These lace sleeves with attached tulle give it a dramatical and romantic feeling during the ceremony, but we also designed a change of look for the bride, making her a lot more comfortable to move around, dance and relax during the beach reception.
During the styled shoot, Masha and David exchanged their own vows and got eloped, with the staff team as their witnesses. Worth to mention, this free-spirited couple are founders of an eco-friendly company that sell organic and therapeutic products, and we would like them to be part of our vendors team as well, which is why we had scented oils and Palo Santo incense sticks as wedding favors, copal resin incense during the ceremony, and at the end of the day, the “groom” and the “bride” burned a bundle of dried white sage to secretly celebrate just between the two of them.
If you’re planning an open air beach wedding you should definitely stay tune about this wedding editorial!
