About

Our Story…

Events & Weddings Costa Rica started as a fusion of two people, two cultures and one vision – planning extraordinary weddings and events in tropical Costa Rica. Our company was born to fill a void in the wedding and event planning business in Costa Rica: to provide the personalized service that you need and deserve for your wedding or special event.

Our Philosophy…

We do not believe in cookie-cutter events as every couple and every group is different. We design each event tailored to our client’s distinctive style, unique personality and discerning taste.

We customize each experience to ensure that you and your guests walk away with unforgettable memories.
