A surf chic wedding in Costa Rica

29 Jan 2020

Californian couple Cheyenne Rubio and Jacob Ludvik married at Playa Conchal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica with the help of wedding planners Meghan Cox and Mil Besos

Having travelled to Costa Rica two years prior, Cheyenne and Jacob could think of no better place in which to hold their destination wedding. 

As avid surfers, the theme was 'surf sunset chic' and a colour palette of reds, yellows, oranges, gold and teal helped them to achieve their theme, symbolising the sun, sand and sea. 

A beach ceremony and a wedding breakfast hosted outdoors allowed Cheyenne, Jacob and their guests to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. 

Commenting on their wedding location, the couple said: "Costa Rica gives a magic Pura Vida vibe to any wedding. This country is an ideal wedding destination for those seeking a beach or rainforest location. It is tropical with a happy culture and beautiful energy, incredible wildlife, a variety of adventures, beaches and delicious fresh food."

Cheyenne and Jacob's wedding and the work of Meghan Cox and Mil Besos was announced as a winner in the 12th edition of The Belief Awards, a biannual competition which recognises and celebrates the best wedding planners in the world.
