About Us

When Seattle native Aimee Monihan moved to Costa Rica in the late 1990s, she had a dream: to combine her loves for travel and throwing fantastic parties into one unique company. She founded Tropical Occasions in 1999, as the country’s first wedding planning company. Since then, the company has orchestrated more than 1,500 events, across all parts of Costa Rica and in destinations around the world, including Central America, the Caribbean, Europe and the South Pacific. As part of Destination Occasions, along with Denver-based Mountain Occasions, Tropical Occasions is still based on their founding principle: Love is at the heart of everything we do.

Our Philosophy

We believe in celebrating love, equality, and joy.

We believe in celebrating love and embracing the beautiful diversity of the world around us. We believe celebration is an art form, and that it should be meaningful but also fun, from the initial consultation until the last guest departs. We thrive on bringing your vision to life while joyfully managing any bumps or surprises along the way. Our purpose comes from

the knowledge that we are creating memories and bonds that last a lifetime. We know that the magnitude of any memory lies in the details and the seamlessness of the experience. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond to meticulously design, plan and produce one-of-a-kind events in beautiful locations, for an unforgettable experience.

Here at Destination Occasions, we are all fellow travelers, life enthusiasts and lovers of celebration who view the world as one big backyard, and its people all part of one

crazy, vast, beautiful family.
