When planning any event online, especially your wedding day, you really never know what to expect...let me change that mindset for you. With Four Wind's Weddings you know exactly what to expect! Expect a level of professionalism like no other, a sense of organization and confidence that you can totally trust, and expect your vision to be transformed into a beautiful reality. Kirsten's eye for style and floral design is exquisite and it still amazes me how she is able to take exactly what you envision and make it your wedding dream. I would highly recommend the Four Wind's wedding team to anyone, and would tell you to leave the worrying at home. You have no need to worry about a thing when you work with this exceptional team!

When my fiance and I decided on a destination wedding in Costa Rica, we knew immediately we'd need some help. Thankfully our photographers recommended the team at Four Winds. After emailing and Skyping with them, we knew they were the ones to work with.

Kirsten's eye for design is incredible while Jonathan's expertise and Kristen's day-to-day support proved invaluable time and time again. From directing us to the best location in the country for our time of year to helping us find our incredible hotel all the way down to tying the place cards on mini bottles, we couldn't have executed our wedding without them. My husband is an architect so we had a very specific vision for our day and they were able to pull everything together flawlessly.

Kirsten provided all of the floral work for us as well and our flowers were amazing. She also took an idea for our altar I found in a magazine and turned it into reality. It's now one of my favorite pieces of the whole event, looking back.

The addition of Kristen and using Basecamp really made us feel at peace as we neared the wedding day. We heard from them almost daily and we knew that all the small, final details were in great hands. They answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly and provided thoughtful guidance the whole way.

We can't recommend the team at Four Winds enough. There isn't a thing we would change about our wedding day and that is largely thanks to their incredible work. If you have an opportunity to work with them, do it!

We loved working with Jonathan and Kirsten. Jonathan did more of the planning while Kirsten worked on the overall design. They took our jumbled ideas for our wedding and made them a beautiful reality. They helped us hire some of the best vendors in Costa Rica and were really fun to have around on the wedding day. They're down to earth which made it easy to get along with them. They understood our vision from the beginning which is why we hired them, so glad we had them aboard for the big day.

When we decided to have a destination wedding, it was visiting Four Winds' website that lead us to get married in Costa Rica. We instantly knew after our first call with Kirsten and Jon that they were the ones for us!
The planning process was very professional and they did a great job at balancing an eager bride and slower costa rican vendors :) Every recommendation was bang on from the music to the venues, desert suppliers, hair and décor ideas. They have the experience to know how to direct a bride and they're not afraid to let you know what they think which I really appreciated.
They also have amazing ideas. Kirsten was so wonderful at getting a sense for what I wanted and helping me make it a reality. We didn't have a huge budget or want to be too elaborate and she was able to work within that and help us create the perfect setting. Many have said it looked like it was out of a magazine and I agree! The flowers were so PERFECT and beautiful. I wish I could have kept them forever - SO wonderful.
And Jonathan (costa vida photography) did our photos as well. Of course, like everything else about our wedding, the photos were beyond expectations. Jonathan used our rather tight schedule perfectly and was able to get everything we wanted. His creativity, swiftness and ability to make people who hate photos look natural was what has given us wedding pics to last a lifetime.
Lastly, Ivy, who was our wedding day coordinator was our time keeper extraordinaire. I literally hadn't seen the venue until showing up that day in my dress so she was perfect at telling us what was what and keeping everything on point.
I can't imagine our day without the crew at Four Winds. They will delivery your dream wedding and more - no doubt.

It’s tough planning a destination wedding; however, having Kristen in my corner was a god send. She was extremely responsive, resourceful, and most importantly Kristen listened and figured out ways to make things happen. I was incredibly lucky to have her help in pulling together such aesthetically memorable event!

I hired Four Winds in February of this year to assist in planning and coordinating our December wedding. After a consultation via phone with Kirsten and Jonathan, I was convinced they were the perfect team to not only secure our vendors (i.e. do the hard part!) but also put together an extraordinary setting. First and foremost, their coordination and handling of booking our vendors was so incredibly valuable that I could have never ever done any of it without them. They provided us with a few options for venues with extensive photos and eventually a 360 virtual tour of our selected venue. We did not have time or anything in our budget for a site visit, so relied 100% on their word and the visuals they provided. The location was magnificent and we were immediately excited once we saw it in person. Then came the fun part - the wedding design and floral planning. After discussing my vision, Kirsten provided an inspiration board with details of her plans. We worked through the specifics over the course of the next couple months - with her handling the local stuff and me DIYing some design elements to bring out with us. It all came together so perfectly. Kirsten's level of creativity is off the charts and her impeccable taste and attention to detail made our wedding day the most beautiful and perfect day I could have ever hoped for.

As we were reminiscing the wedding in the few days we had left with our family in Costa Rica, everyone agreed that no other destination wedding could compare to ours, that we've truly set the bar! All of my credit goes to Kirsten, for turning our inspiration into the real deal!

I would highly recommend Jon and Kirsten -- they delivered a wedding day that my new husband sincerely describes as "flawless". From our first interviews with potential planners, Jon and Kirsten stood out for really responding to the vision we had for a morning ceremony and brunch reception for our 40 guests. They recommended an amazing venue, made great contributions to our travel-themed design and effectively sourced and managed our local suppliers. As with any long-distance relationship, it's important to set communication expectations upfront as it can be challenging to keep track of all the details. That said, I never doubted that Jon, Kirsten and their team were wholeheartedly committed to delivering a perfect and very personal event. And, final point, the photos *do not* do Kirsten's work with flowers justice!!! She's got an inspired talent for floral design and her work was the final touch on our wonderful day!

Kirsten and Jonathan are absolutely amazing. they are so knowledgeable about wedding details and preparations. they made our day so special and we could not have done it without them.
we contemplated spending the money on a planner for our wedding and whether or not we thought it was worth it. kirsten and jonathan, ended up saving us as much money as the cost us and we didn't have the headache of having to contact vendors. it was so nice to have them as a liaison, between us and the vendors. especially with a language barrier, and being in a different country.
their easy laid back attitudes, were good to keep the planning stress free and they always did what they committed to.
we would recommend them to anyone considering a destination wedding within their realm of expertise and wouldn't change the fact that they were there for us on our day!! they are such amazing people and we are now proud to say we can consider them friends and not just our wedding planners!!

Our wedding was incredible, mainly due to Four Winds Weddings and Events! The decor and style was beautiful and unique! They also arranged for the officiant (who we loved by the way), our reception dinner caterer, as well as giving us advice on activities and things to see while in Costa Rica. Our wedding day went very smoothly, the pictures turned out stunning, - everything was perfect! Overall an amazing job - Thanks Four Winds Weddings and Events!

Four Winds Weddings was absolutely wonderful. They were fantastic to work with from the beginning, middle and end. Not only did Kirsten take into consideration ALL of the concepts and inspirations I presented to her- she created a dream of beautiful flowers arranged throughout our ceremony (from bouquets and boutineers to aisle ends) and reception (the table arrangements were to die for!). I highly recommend anyone who wants beautiful and unique flowers along with a really wonderful company that will help you along the way and make preparing for your big day easier. Thank you so much Four Winds, we appreciate all that you did for us!

Jon & Kirsten, thank you so much for being a part of our special day. We will never forget what you arranged for us. You took our ideas of a simple beach wedding and found the best out of the way spot where for miles in either direction we were the only ones on the beach. It was exactly what we had hoped for and received. The flowers for both of us were beautiful. All the planning you did made it so simple all we had to was show up. Thank you again for your hard work.

Kirsten,

Thank you so much for the flowers that you put together and presented for our daughter, Michelle's wedding in August. I didn't get out to the greenhouse that day to watch you "in action" creating, but later I did enjoy the photographer's pictures of you at work there. The bouquets that you made were incredible - in selection of flowers, color, and form. I think the long tables placed down through the orchard covered with the white table cloths, your "knock out" flower arrangements, and the candles glimmering from the jars hung from the overhead branches of the trees, made a truly magical place!. Many people commented on this later, and many people enjoyed getting photographs of your flower arrangements!. People said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended! Michelle was so pleased with your work! We have seen your floral work at other weddings, and your arrangements are always so impressively beautiful - beyond beautiful!. Flowers are such an important part of a wedding, and Kirsten you have such a gift!

That day Jon you were such a help too! Thanks for helping to get the silverware problem on the tables taken care of! We heard later that you stepped right in and diverted a couple of potential catastrophes! All your abilities and experience in restaurant management makes you a priceless member of the team! You are both also among the most wonderful people that I know!

Thank you so much again!

Love Sharon Burkhart
