Costa Rica Destination Wedding

Remember yesterday when we shared with you those spectacular vintage invites from Jenn Lane? Well … here is Jenn and Daniel’s DIY Costa Rica Wedding. They wanted their entire wedding from start to finish to be incredibly unique. Staring off with a destination wedding in Costa Rica.

With family and friends by their side they spent a whirlwind week relaxing and exploring the rain forest. Thanks to Jenn and her talented photographer, Rachel Nicole for sharing this tropical delight with us.

Steal this idea!

What a lovely idea to have your wedding party sign the bottom of your bridal shoes. It might be a crafty idea to place them in a shadow box with other wedding memories to have as a keepsake of your special day.

Jenn and Daniel had some unique twists to their wedding ceremony. Her Mom and Grandmother walked her down the aisle to “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison. They read the love letters that they wrote to each.  Those letters were on their wedding invitations that they sent to their guests. Instead of a unity candle, they mixed paint, and stood on canvas to make footprints. They ended the ceremony by washing each others feet and then finally sealing the deal with a kiss.
