I’m often asked about what should we give our guests as a favor to remember our wedding. I have a list that usually includes things like Costa Rican coffee, personalized mugs with a tropical animal as the handle and sarongs for the beach.

“Since we met the day before our wedding I did not think about any details and just focused on relaxing and enjoying the moment. Then, when we got to the reception, we were so pleased that we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything was beautiful and you really paid attention to my requests for various details. We left Guanacaste feeling like we just had the most amazing wedding EVER. Thank you, Randy!”
