On May 5, Nuevo Arenal celebrated the wedding of Sabrina Krauskopf and Diego Colóm Steele. The bride is the daughter of Monika Krauskopf and the late Willy Dieter Krauskopf, founders of the Lucky Bug B&B and Restaurante Caballo Negro. The groom is the son of former Guatemalan President Álvaro Colóm and Karen Steele.
Sabrina attended the San Francisco de Asis School of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery. The groom attended Country Day School in Escazú, Costa Rica, and went on to graduate from the Universidad de Ciencias Médicas.
Diego’s dog, Bamba, was the ring bearer, and he also played a large role in uniting the couple. According to a printed story of how the couple met that was distributed at the wedding, Diego’s mother had rescued Bamba in downtown San José, and had asked Diego to take the sick dog to the vet. It just so happened that Sabrina was working that day at the clinic. Diego asked Sabrina out on a date a few days later, after Bamba was better.
The wedding took place at the Parador Resort and Spa in Quepos, Costa Rica, overlooking the ocean. Approximately 50 guests attended, and the wedding cake was ocean-themed, with beautifully crafted seashells made of frosting.
