Sylvia Chaves diverse weddings Costa Ric

I am from Costa Rica married to a British for over 25 years and a proud mother of a beautiful 23 year old girl. I have always enjoyed connecting with people and taking on challenges.

As a self-driven person, I made a career within the tourism industry where I developed very sharp skills for planning and customer service. I have an intuitive sense to understand people´s needs and foresee any issues that may affect the client´s overall experience.
My experience lets me make assertive decisions to handle any situation in a calm way and common sense.

The destination wedding planning has given me expertise in a lot of fields, such as flower arrangements, design, catering, photography, and many more subjects related to events, but the most important quality I have is the ability to make my clients happy and confident about my recommendations, my services always surpass their expectations.

I enjoy planning events and dedicating my energy to orchestrate the day into perfection.

4 years ago my husband and I decided to slow down on work and travelled through  Europe, Asia, Africa and South America .

Learning about the many different cultures and people, seeing amazing places for the first time, has been an absolutely wonderful experience.

When Costa Rica approved equal marriage, I knew it was time for me to go back to my passion, wedding planning and what better way to do so, than founding a company that focus on helping the LGBTQ community creating a safe space for couples to   have wonderful weddings .

Costarrican people are very friendly and this is a very open mind country where gay couples can feel free and safe, my goal is to create magic events and  help couples to navigate the wide range of options available, to always get the best quality and give preference to  inclusive wedding vendors and venues.
