    The BEST destination wedding planners in the game!

    Where to even start with our experience with Aimee and Natalie at Tropical Occasions?! They absolutely CRUSHED our destination wedding in Hacienda Pinilla, Costa Rica! Every single detail of the weekend completely blew us away, and we are still on Cloud Nine. Like, was it even real?!?! It was the most EPIC weekend not only for us, but for every single one of our guests. There are SO many details and decisions that go into every wedding….endless vendor options, menu choices, types of flowers, floorplans, timelines, rentals, etc. It can be a lot for any bride & groom, but then when you add in coordinating travel to a foreign country and schedules and housing and transportation for 80 guests, it can take overwhelming to the next level. However luckily for us, we had the absolute BEST team in the game to keep all the stress at bay!!! Looking back on the whole planning process, yes there were plenty of decisions to be made and checklists to take care of, but I don’t reflect on our wedding planning with stress or tension. Tropical Occasions made it fun and exciting instead. My husband and I are both in the luxury weddings & events business ourselves in Atlanta, GA (Bold Catering & Design), so I know how it feels when a bride or client trusts you completely versus thinking that they know best. I’m so glad that we kept that in mind throughout the last year of planning. It was such a sense of joy and excitement going into wedding day NOT knowing every single little detail, and getting to experience everything for the first time right along with our guests. We trusted Aimee & Natalie to make our day & weekend magical, and what they delivered was far beyond anything that we could have dreamed of. I’m tearing up as I write this, not because we are sad that our wedding weekend over, but so content and overjoyed knowing that it was the absolute BEST week/weekend of our lives. Every vendor that Aimee curated was the perfect fit, every creative “wow factor” that they came up with was the perfect idea for our friends and family, every design decision that they made reflected our style as a couple completely, and every hour that they all spent on our wedding was filled with dedication, thoughtfulness, and care. My husband and I interact with planners and vendors of all personalities and styles on a weekly basis in our own careers, but there is only ONE Tropical Occasions. They are rare gems in this crazy industry, and it’s not lost on us how amazing they are at what they do. Thank you to Aimee and Natalie for all of the back and forth emails, after hours calls and texts with timezone differences between Atlanta and Colorado/Costa Rica, and overall attentiveness to us. Being in this business ourselves, we know that wedding planners all have families and lives outside of their jobs, and we are so grateful that the ladies of Tropical Occasions still made us feel like their top priority and that we were your only clients…..of course we know that we were not! Best of all, we connected instantly with Aimee & Natalie from a friendship standpoint. They both have infectious joy, passion for life, and hilarious senses of humor that my husband and I both were so drawn to and immediately comfortable with, both over the phone, in email, and most importantly in person. We feel like we have gained friends for life! We can't say enough about our experience with Tropical Occasions, and we would recommend them a thousand times over!!! - Alex & Lee Miller

    Tropical Occasions were pioneers in Costa Rica and largely defined the "destination wedding" concept here in this amazing country. That said, they were also the first event planners to ever work with us and their guidance before our villa was even complete was instrumental in our becoming the destination venue that we are! Founder, Aimee Monahan is a seasoned pro running things between the USA and Costa Rica and her right-hand planners in both Costa Rica's Papagallo and Manuel Antonio regions means she's got the country covered! We look forward to many more amazing weddings with Tropical Occasions...
