And honestly, it was everything I expected and so much more!

Alicia and Kevin are real life examples of the "Where have you been all my life?!" couple. Because I found out that the two were right next to each other. No, seriously, right next to each other. Of all the places in the world, they've lived their whole life in the same Long Island town, with the same group of friends, and the rest...clearly, you see where this is going. Yep, you guessed it, going straight to Costa Rica on a non-stop flight...

When Alicia contacted me with the details of her wedding in Costa Rica, I think we both leaped up in the air from the excitement...okay, maybe it was just me. I slept about two hours before going to the airport for the early AM flight. Stepping off the plane, I was invaded with this insane wave of heat that, I'm pretty sure, burnt off at least three of my eyelashes. Heat jokes aside, the Flamingo Beach Resort, in Guanacaste, sits right alongside an incredible beach that made these two love fish feel right at home. I don't think I know of another couple that loves the ocean more than these two! Sun, sand, water, and awesome piña coladas combined with an all-inclusive menu, made this the perfect place for Alicia and Kevin to tie the knot. And their family, well...I think I was part of it by the end of the trip. 

It was a gorgeous setting, and one of the most scenic shores I've ever seen. Watching the sunset from this beach is nothing short of amazing, and if you're with your significant other, it may even be magical. I can only hope you see what I mean as you view the connection between these two....Pura Vida!
