At Sugar Beach we know weddings. We know a wedding should be one of the happiest events in the life of any couple, and with proper planning it can also be one of the most relaxed.

Relaxed? you ask. A relaxing wedding? you ask again, dubiously.

Yes! is our enthusiastic reply. A destination wedding – coordinating your special event from thousands of miles away – can be a pleasant, soul affirming project when you place yourself in the hands of Larissa Banting, one of the world’s foremost wedding planners and the woman behind Weddings Costa Rica.

Larissa’s own Costa Rica beach wedding revealed to her the common challenges a bride encounters when planning a destination event. This experience inspired her to open her wedding planning and design firm in 2003, which quickly became established as the finest in the country. Weddings Costa Rica was named one of the Top 30 wedding planners in the world by both Destination Weddings and Honeymoon. Larissa planned the first Costa Rica wedding to be featured in an international wedding magazine, Modern Bride, and was the first Costa Rica firm to be included in Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book – a resource of the best wedding planners around the globe.
