Dreaming of a romantic destination wedding with an exotic location? That is exactly what our feature this morning is all about! Rebekah of A & B Creative designed + styled this shoot in El Salvador at an incredible new venue (that’s also a coffee plantation!) nestled in among the volcanoes in the mountains of El Salvador. Casa Curry is pretty magical as the owners planted everything that’s on site and the result is an oasis that feels like you’ve stumbled upon the garden of Eden. A bit more behind the shoot from Rebekah…
A lot of tropical destination weddings have color palettes that only match their bright surroundings. I love bold wedding hues, but some couples may choose to have an exotic local and feel that a more muted palette fits their personalities better. I designed this inspiration shoot for a couple that would love the lush gardens of this El Salvadorian mountain oasis and the stunning tropical flowers growing on the property, but that are inclined toward softer more romantic colors for their decor. The food is local El Salvadorian delights and I created an iced coffee bar so that guests won’t have to skip the delicious coffee grown on site simply because of the heat.
Looking at Sarah’s gorgeous photos and film (from Twenty Twenty Studios), you can’t help but fall in love with the natural beauty that El Salvador has to offer.
Casa Curry is such an amazing venue because within it there are so many options for your ceremony and reception locations: dense walkways, volcano vistas, arbors dripping with flowers (the likes of which I’ve never seen in the states), fruit trees, a coffee plantation, two cabanas for the couple and their closest friends and family, as well as grassy grounds perfect for walking hand in hand with your love.
The property is so abundant that it supplied every flower (for the exception of the protea) and all of the succulents…even the coffee from the iced coffee bar!
And a fun video by Sarah of Twenty Twenty Studios which shows of the beauty of El Salvador even more!
Thanks so much to all these artists for sharing this El Salvadoran inspiration with us today!
