Real Weddings: Michelle + Dustin

Real Weddings Michelle Dustin Eco Friendly Green Weddings Eco Elopement Destination Weddings Costa Rica

Michelle and Dustin have a taste for adventure, so a tropical jungle seemed like an ideal destination for their eco-elopement. As it turned out, they couldn’t have made a better choice. The Rafiki Safari Lodge located in the middle of the rain forest in near the central Pacific coast, was perfect for their pre-wedding day adventures that included horseback riding and rafting, and for the ceremony and reception that followed.

With beautiful local flowers and a celebratory meal made from local foods after the ceremony, Michelle and Dustin’s day was all things green.

When thinking of the ideal location for their destination wedding, Emily + Thomas decided that old-world charm, adventure and mountains were musts.  So Iceland it is!  The couple will be heading there with family and friends for their nuptials (designed by Iceland Wedding Planner) later this year, but to get things started, they gave us a look at their engagement album, photographed in DC by Photos By Miss Ann!

So how do you invite guests to an Iceland wedding adventure?  Well, with gorgeous, vintage atlas invitations, of course!  Crafted by Atlas Artistry, the old-world invitation suite began with actual books, hallowed out to hold the contents.  The designers replicated a passport, featuring Emily and Thomas’ engagement photos, the wedding itineraries, and other must-have details, all laid out by Iceland Wedding Planners.  Hand tied with twine and finished with a custom seal, it all blends together to create an incredible experience.

Here is how it all unfolds…

Real Wedding: Sara + Josh

Sara Josh Real Wedding Costa Rica Green Eco Friendly Wedding Beach Outdoor Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine

If you guessed Costa Rica as the destination wedding location for today’s Real Wedding feature, you were absolutely correct! Meet Sara and Josh…

Costa Rica was a special location for Sara, who frequently visited the country as a child. She and Josh chose to hold their ceremony on the shores of Las Baulas National Park, which is an active nesting ground for the Olive Ridley turtle.  They repurposed items such as salvaged milk jugs, paper bag menus, burlap table runners and dramatic pieces of driftwood for eco-friendly wedding décor.

The couple infused lots of local flair into their wedding celebration with handmade fine wooden products from local Costa Rican artisans, and a local Costa Rican menu including Arroz Con Palmito, Gallo Pinto, fresh Costa Rican coffee and Tres Leches, a traditional dessert (yum!).   A local Brazilian duo set the tone for a party with festive Samba rhythms , and after dinner, a local Reggae band entertained guests.  Oh what a night!
