About Tui

About Tui

I was born in Costa Rica on an herb farm on the Volcano Poas (seriously – my parents started an herbal tea company!) but I grew up in the little town of Mt. Dora in Central Florida. Looking for a simpler lifestyle, we moved to Costa Rica full time in 2005 and I have worked in the event/hospitality/tourism industry since. I consider myself a third generation event planner, following in my grandmother and mothers footsteps - who both coordinated events both socially and professionally throughout their lives.

I married my high school sweetheart and we have shared countless adventures over the years. After 19 years together, we embarked on our biggest adventure - parenthood. More than four years later, we are still together and enjoying the wild ride of raising our free spirited daughter in the rain forests of Arenal Costa Rica!

Some things I Love are: fresh orchids, finding a bargain, truffles, endlessly researching a wide variety of topics, elopements, rainy days, tea parties with my daughter, waterfalls, watching TED talks and Survivor, finding time to meditate and practice yoga, tahini, reconnecting with old friends, unusual or unique names and discovering new places, foods and adventures!

Some things I Don't Like: styrofoam, not understanding something clearly, veal, not having a plan, websites whose about us sections are vague, the sound of balloons popping, bullies, stereotypes, overtired children, rushing into things and being a complete disaster in the kitchen.

Our Vision

Our Vision

Sustainability. We strive to use green, eco-friendly and recyclable options whenever possible. In Costa Rica we can often serve drinks right out of coconuts or pineapples instead of plastic and use things like bamboo as straws and banana leaves as runners or at place settings instead of linens. Our preference is to always use the local option whenever possible in an effort to support our immediate community. However, being just a few hours from the capital of San Jose, we have access to most of the services available in the country. It might sound cliché, but we really try to make our world a better place by using each event as an opportunity to help in our local, rural communities.

Our passion is logistics. There is something really satisfying about figuring out all of the details and fitting all of the pieces together. Costa Rica offers an abundance of event venues that all come with their own, unique challenges. With an abundance of venue and accommodation options, the area truly offers something for everyone. Many of these spots are never seen by the average tourist and we can help you find the perfect one for your event.

By hosting your event in paradise, you are immersed in natural beauty. You don’t have to spend a lot on lots décor or flowers to make a major impact. With the unbeatable natural backdrop, a bit of lighting and some greenery can go a long way. Our experience in the area has given us the ability to use what is locally available and inexpensive to make a big statement – without breaking the bank. We like to work with every client, venue and along with nature in creating one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime events.

Why It's Called Blue Butterfly.

Why It's Called Blue Butterfly.

I became interested in butterflies as a little girl after an inside joke with my favorite aunt. Since then we exchanged them, I have collected them and they have been a big part of my life. As I grew up, I learned more about butterflies and I began to appreciate their symbolism.

Butterflies have many meanings within different cultures, with the most common being symbols for life, love, change and powerful transformation. It can represent any metamorphosis in your life or personality, moving through different life cycles, renewal and rebirth. They are also popularly thought to symbolize a person's essence, or soul, either past, present or future.

The color blue in a butterfly is often thought to symbolize joy, purity, love, beauty or a change in luck. (Why you should carry something blue with you on your wedding day.) In Costa Rica, seeing a blue butterfly is viewed as good luck and a wish granter.

While all blue butterflies are stunning, the most impressive is the Blue Morpho. The Blue Morpho lives in the tropical rain forests of Costa Rica and is one of the largest butterflies in the world. Its wing span ranges from 5 to 8 inches and its wings are iridescent. The apparent bright blue color with wings edged in black makes it breathtaking to see.

Some say events are like butterflies… So often events are used to celebrate or mark a new beginning. Whether it is a new life together as partners or the start of a new sales period, it is some kind of transition or change that is occurring. We are always evolving, growing and always at one of these stages in the different places in our lives. It's about celebrating those transitions!
