Veronica & Andrew's Marvelous Costa Rica Destination Wedding, Tony Bowls Gown & Custom Bridal Headpiece

February 16, 2012

One of my favorite design projects from last year was the custom piece made for Veronica. I was so happy when she recently shared photos of her destination wedding day at the Barcelo Langosta Beach Hotel and Casino in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Veronica and her love, Andrew, met while teenagers working together at the Real Canadian Superstore (Alberta, Canada). Their wedding day with over 40 family and friends in this paradise setting marked 7 1/2 years of happiness together! Veronica shared, "our ceremony was on the beach, barefoot, and just beautiful! The tide was almost coming up onto the little spot we picked, but it would always break right before hitting the plateau. It was meant to be our day for sure."

I hope this brings as big a warm smile to your face and it does mine. . .

The couple and their guests enjoyed the wedding festivities in this setting, and Veronica highly recommends their wedding planner. . .

We had an amazing wedding planner named Andrea from Costa Rica Paradise Weddings. She did a phenomenal job of working with the resort to ensure all of the details from the wedding went off without any issues. The wedding itself was relaxed and stress free. The weather in Costa Rica was beautiful for the entire 2 weeks we stayed there. The people in the country are very friendly and it was just wonderful to walk around the area. The resort itself was a 5 minute cab ride to a local town; or you could walk along the beach a low tide to get to the town. The food was excellent; our wedding meal was especially delicious. I would highly recommend this as a destination to anyone looking for something a bit different than Mexico or the other typical destination spots. I also highly recommend Andrea's services if they live far away and won't be able to handle a lot of the details themselves; she took care of everything and it was AMAZING.

Veronica wore a gorgeous, colorful Tony Bowls charmeuse gown with a beautifully-beaded bodice and waistband. The geometric design of the colorful accents on the full A-line skirt only add to the drama of this design.

Veronica told me that color is very important to her and that she would like her favorite color of purple to dominate her headpiece design. We began by creating a Swarovski (vintage and contemporary) crystal and sequence motif in purple hues in a paisley shape to complement the similar shapes used in the bodice of her gown. This motif served as a focal point on a bed of cut white & dyed satinette and emu feathers.

I absolutely LOVE how her bouquet adds the warm hues of her gown with the purples and green to bring it all together. Perfect!

I keep looking back at my wedding photos in awe. It was such a perfect day; everything went so well! I am truly thankful for the work done by Sandra; I get so many compliments about my headpiece and I am so happy to give Breeziway's information out to friends. I really like that it was a beautiful piece that complimented my dress rather than take away from it. I am used to wearing things that are really different, and I think the headpiece did justice to my personality without being too out-there.

Thank you, Veronica, for sharing this special moment in your life with us.
It was a pleasure to work with you.

Wishing you and Andrew many years of happiness and the blessings of the family you seek. . .
