Want a destination elopement, but still want a reception with your loved ones after? Consider doing a post elopement party like Abby and Beth! This couple had a destination elopement in Costa Rica, then an epic Halloween-inspired post elopement party back home in Arkansas. We loved the deep v-neck white suit and dried floral bouquets from the destination elopement, but we especially love how they brought the celebrations stateside for the post elopement party. We'll let Shawna Rinehart of Honey Rose Photo tell you the deets:
Abby & Beth decided to elope in Costa Rica with a small handful of their closest friends in attendance. We flew to Costa Rica and met up with everyone and chatted over drinks about the days to come. On the day of the elopement, Abby and Beth got ready together and we all hopped into a cab towards Monteverde. Surrounded by the forest Abby & Beth exchanged vows and married in a butterfly sanctuary. Officially married we hiked through the forest and headed back out to the cab to head toward our next location on the beach for some couple portraits.
After a few days in Costa Rica we got the opportunity to meet back up with Abby & Beth for their big Halloween inspired reception party in their home state of Arkansas. In good ole' pig party fashion, guests were all dressed up in costume and surrounded by some amazing food and activities including a nacho food truck, tarot card reader, face painter, and so much more.
