and Costa Rican Rentals host a Wedding Planning Event!

Destination and Costa Rican Rentals hosted a wonderful event in Playa Ocotal, Costa Rica at the properties represented by Heather Mahaffey.  The purpose of this event was to display the beauty of this area, the ease of accessing this region of Costa Rica, and most importantly the ability to host a full scale destination wedding here.  By all accounts the event was a smashing success.

The weeklong festivities were attended by a number of highly respected wedding planners and others from within the wedding industry from all over the United States.  Guests were treated to a tour of all of Costa Rican Rental’s properties in Playa Ocotal and the surrounding area, an excursion (zip-lining or deep sea fishing), and of course a lot of soaking up the sun poolside at the wonderful private villas.

Perhaps the highlight of the week was the networking party and sit down Costa Rican dinner hosted in part by numerous local wedding vendors; among them florists, photographers, caterers, rental provider, and others.  At this party, individual tables were beautifully decorated by each wedding planner in attendance; additionally, a tent and chair display along with a lovely archway were setup to show off the awe-inspiring beauty of a wedding held at these properties.

Those attending the week-long event went away highly impressed and more than convinced that a destination wedding held in this region of Costa Rica, specifically at the properties toured, would be nothing short of exceptional.
