the final destination: Costa Rica

So far on our blog we have revealed to you the first 3 inspirational destinations for our event on March 20th, as well as the delicious menu of food inspired by these stunning locations.  Now, we are revealing our final inspirational destination- Costa Rica! 

I have had the pleasure of travelling to Costa Rica twice last year to collaborate on photo shoots with several of our event sponsors:  Stay in Costa Rica, Carla Ten Eyck, Candice Coppolla of Juilee Events, Vintage Cinema and dd Nickel. I can honestly say that is one of my favorite places in the world!...Especially for a wedding!  We are thrilled to announce that Stay in Costa Rica will be giving away a 5 day, 4 night 'mini-moon'  in Costa Rica, complete with a couples massage and facial, a tree top zip line tour through the jungle and a sunset cocktail cruise, to a lucky bride who attends the event or purchases a gown during our Destination Trunk Show that runs March 22nd -26th. 

Below is the inspiration board for our Costa Rican inspirational vignette that will be revealed during the event. The board was created by Candice Coppola of Jubilee EventsIn putting together the board, Candice found her inspiration from the beautiful country itself, as well as an all-natural, 1970's vibe.
"This board oozes an element of quirkiness and takes advantage of all that Costa Rica has to offer. I never advocate fighting with natural elements— you should embrace them! We have a lot of elements happening here, but a repeat of color and style. I love the vintage travel posters, the gorgeous anthropology painting with the suitcase and shoes (the muse for this board!) and that amazing photograph of the Costa Rican rain forest."

As our trips to Costa Rica have resulted in a incredible collection of work, we’re going to be showcasing our images by Carla Ten Eyck and her team on the first level of the boutique during the event. Our friend Jim Altieri from Vintage Cinema will also be showcasing his recent work from our November shoot as well. We can’t wait to see you on March 20th from 11-3 p.m. — be sure to RSVP by emailing us at rsvp@eventjubilee.comThe deadline to reserve your spot is Thursday, March 17th.  Learn more about the event by seeing the official invitation on our blog!
