Green Weddings was established by partners Lisavette Saylor and Myriam Albu in November of 2010. United by the health and wellness culture of Mal Pais, these partners met and became friends at a pre natal yoga class in 2007. Although they loved mommy hood, they also loved the fast paced world of creativity and production. Shortly after tapping into their base of contacts from around the world, they started to build their business in Mal Pais, spearheading small and large-scale weddings, fashion photo spreads for the likes of Vogue, as well as commercial production. This compatible and ambitious production-duo complements each other incredibly well, creating the perfect balance for any bride and/or client.
Lisavette Saylor grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she studied Interior Design. In the mid 90s, she moved to Miami and ventured into the world of television and music at MTV. Her career in production spans over 10 years producing shows out of LA, Miami, NY and London, among other entertainment Meccas.
In an effort to slow down and enjoy a slower-pace lifestyle (“Pura Vida”), she moved to Costa Rica with her husband in 2004 and had her two daughters. It has been a life changing experience and a dream that has allowed her to pursue her love of design and nature while utilizing her production management expertise in the world of wedding planning. In addition to her boutique agency in Mal Pais, she still consults for American and International based productions, including Music and TV Productions, as well as high- fashion photo shoots locally and abroad.
Myriam Albu was born in France, spending most of her youth in Paris where she studied Décor Design and Visual Merchandising. Following her degree, she played a key role in fashion window displays for global apparel brands the GAP, JACADI, NEWMAN and MARLBORO CLASSICS. Her extensive travels around Europe expanded her expertise into the design and installation of décor for famous fashion houses in Europe. Her passion for world culture and travel inspire her sense of design and style.
Now based in Costa Rica, where she met her husband and had her two daughters, she has found creativity in nature, designing the esthetics and creating the unparalleled ambience that Green Weddings is best known for. Her creativity transcends beyond the wedding experience, spanning floral arrangement and interior design for restaurants and private houses.
