Ashley + Joey’s Eco-friendly Costa Rica Wedding (need imgs)

Definitely in the top five of my “things I’m thankful for” list are destination weddings!  Especially ones in exotic and tropical locations like Ashley + Joey’s that incorporated all kinds of green DIY and are captured so perfectly by talented photographers like Katherine Stinnett Photography.  Ashley and Joey wed where they got engaged in Costa Rica, and with some help from friends, family and one heck of a DIY dream event planner, they all created a wondrous aura of adventure, peace, serenity, and perfection.

From the planner:

In our years of living in the Mal Pais / Sta Teresa area we have come to realize that the beauty of it all lies in NATURE. It is this that inspires our design ,that gives us the urge to create and celebrate love. The need to conserve what we have and utilize what is already here, this is the reason we work with natural elements and upcycled items, minimizing the ecological impact in our little piece of paradise and using our creativeness to execute magical moments without making an impact on our planet.

Ashley’s got that perfect color sense to know a good aura when she sees one- and so she choose Mal Pais Green Weddings and Events to coordinate this lovely day.  They not only stick to their commitment to the environment but also are stellar crafters.  They created the beer bottle candelabras, the coconut fiber wrapped succulent pots, the driftwood signs, and the gorgeous bamboo arch made of bamboo from a local garden.  Ashley’s grandmother, who could not attend, created the invite itineraries and menus.
