FedEx, UPS and airline package services couldn't help, so Judd Frost put his 32-year-old daughter on a plane to hand-deliver the $500 tan gabardine suit pants, the Star Tribune reported ( http://strib.mn/1e1EDli).
After 11 hours of flying Sunday and a bumpy ride on back roads, Jessie Frost reached the beachfront resort of Las Brisas, where Jason Anderson, 32, of Maple Grove, and Heather Spaeth, 32, were preparing for a destination wedding Monday.
Neither the bride nor groom knew his pants were missing until Judd Frost reached the bride via Facebook on Sunday afternoon. They were just as surprised to hear a special courier was en route from the high-end Judd Frost Clothiers in the Minneapolis suburb of Wayzata.
The bride emailed him: "We are incredibly speechless."
The groom brought his $1,300 suit jacket and vest, tailored white-patterned shirt, lavender paisley tie, alligator belt and cuff links all zipped into a garment bag. But the vest obscured a hanger that should have held the pants.
"I didn't want them to try and find something else. He is really hard to fit. He's a big kid," Judd Frost said.
Judd Frost often flies around the country to outfit customers but said Costa Rica was a first.
"It's a big day for them," he said. "We certainly weren't going to disappoint them.
