proposal on the beach in
Tamarindo
CostA Rica

Kelly + Ross

It all started as a dare from Ross’ friend four years ago. He told Kelly to pick anyone to go kiss, anyone. Kelly looked across the room, walked over to Ross, and kissed him…with a fake beard and all! After all, it was Halloween and Kelly was dressed up as the Fat Jewish, 100% committed to her costume with a full on beard! Four years later, it was Ross’ turn to surprise Kelly with a surprise proposal on the beach in Tamarindo Costa Rica. Kelly had a feeling that Ross might ask her during this vacation in paradise, but she was completely surprised that he waiting until the last sunset of their Costa Rica trip to ask Kelly to spend forever with him. Congrats you two!

Tamarindo has a special way of bringing people together. Like Laura + Richie, who met each other in this tropical beach town a couple of years ago. I had the pleasure of knowing the two of them before they met each other, and the first time I saw them together, I could feel that they had something special. Fast forward to 2020, with Costa Rica’s borders closed and the whole world on lockdown because of the ‘Rona, COVID brought Laura + Richie even closer together.

And then my third trip…well I ended up packing up my NYC apartment and hopped a flight to Costa Rica for however long I wanted to!!!
