Sarah & Javier

Costa Rica sure cultivates falling in love!

Sarah (who is from Germany) was traveling in Costa Rica when she met her future husband Javier.  She eventually immigrated and fast forward a few years, married her Tico love in a gorgeous boho ceremony on the beach in Playa Grande.

Kate & Dane

I had the pleasure of working with Kate on her wedding day and meeting some of her amazing friends and family.  One of the lovely parts of being a wedding make-up artist is the one-on-one time I spend with each woman closest to the bride while doing their make-up.  The contemplation that each has of their time knowing the bride or the special moments they’ve shared with her gives me a great glimpse into her life and character.  
 
Kate’s mom’s toast says it all.  This is truly one of the best toasts I’ve ever heard.

Desiree & Alex

What do two people who said to themselves “I’ll never get married!” — then meet the person of their dreams do? They travel half way around the planet from New Zealand to Costa Rica for a very intimate wedding (5 people) and then globe trot through South America and finish up in the Galapagos.

Meghan and Adam

Even though I spend such a short time with each bride, sometimes that short time is a very good glimpse into her life.  And in my short time that I spent with Meghan, if I had to sum it up in a short sentence, it would be “She is surrounded by people who love her immensely.”  Costa Rica Wedding Make-Up Artist

I love it when I have a larger bridal party because I get to meet the people closest to the bride and through each of those people, I learn a little bit about her.  Meghan’s closest friends, her bridesmaids really were her biggest cheerleaders and that made me feel amazing to be a part of this day.Costa Rica Wedding Make-Up ArtistAnd let’s just say that view wasn’t half bad!

Meghan was sweet enough to send me this thank you note after their amazing honeymoon in Guatemala!
“I can’t thank you enough for both your incredible work and your comforting presence that week! Thank you so very much!”

Linda & Justin

Linda’s wedding was truly straight out of a tropical fairy tale.  From her family flying in from all over the world to attend, to that incredible gown that would have made Cinderella green with envy!  Photographer Madison Baltodano did an amazing job of capturing all the special moments, not to mention Linda’s smile that just wouldn’t quit!

Marisa & Josh

I met with Marisa prior to her wedding to do a trial make-up session.  She had a pre-ceremony photo shoot scheduled so it worked out well that she’d have her make-up done for those photos as well.

I love when the bride chooses to do a trial session.  It gives us an opportunity to meet face-to-face after months of chatting on-line, and provides a non-rushed environment to get to know each other a bit more and work on the desired look.  The wedding day is much more relaxed knowing we’re on track with the timing and both confident of what the desired look will be. 

The wedding day started out stormy, with rain and heavy thunder.  Marisa stayed calm, and as the day progressed, the parts clouded and the rain Gods made way for the famous Costa Rica sunset.

Marisa’s very kind review:  “Tricia is a true master! She did my makeup for my wedding in Costa Rica, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Everything throughout the process starting with booking the appointment to the day of the wedding was easy and stress free. I showed her a few photos of the look I was going for and told her what colors I felt most comfortable wearing, and she nailed the look. I was also really impressed with how fast she was! Even during the trial session, she was punctual, very efficient, and she was done in about 30 minutes. If you’re looking for a make up artist who’s beyond talented, really friendly and cool, and affordable then work with Tricia!?”
