{Real Wedding} Amanda & Shay

Catching up on a backlog of events that we would love to share with you!

Amanda & Shay are a perfect example that timing is everything. They had met while working together at a restaurant, dated for a few years and spent a few years apart before reconnecting.  And as Amanda put it, "now here we are!" Sometimes life brings us back to that perfect person, that might have arrived a bit too earlier the first time around.

Together with their closest family and friends, Amanda & Shay exchanged vows on the Tulemar Beach while enjoying their stay at Buena Vista Villas. They filled the time surrounding their wedding with adventures and exploration, and plenty of monkey spottings!

Many thanks to El Velo Photography for capturing the day in both photo & video. Coordination & design Meghan Cox, Our Costa Rica Wedding. Delicious cake from Mariposa Pastry. Stylos y Flores created the beautiful flowers, and Costa Mesa provided rentals.

Buena Vista Luxury Villas Wedding

Reminiscing today about a gorgeous wedding earlier this year, at Buena Vista Luxury Villas in Manuel Antonio. Danielle & Jonah's guests enjoyed an intimate dinner with an acoustic trio for entertainment and ocean waves hitting the beach just steps away.

Tonya & Josh

Tonya & Josh were married at a beautiful waterfall in La Fortuna.  They had a few friends that joined them on this adventure, and one even served as their Officiant for a very personal ceremony.  Great friends, a beautiful setting, sweet vows... well, you'd be smiling as much as they are in these pics! Tonya wanted vibrant colors that would pop from the green background, so her bouquet was done with bright pinks, yellows, and oranges. She and her girlfriends even rocked hot pink shoes! The last photo is a personal favorite. The waterfall involves a bit of a walk and we suggest brides rock sneakers on the way and change shoes at the base of the waterfall.  The texture of the walkway, the shoes, the tattoo, the dress... this photo completely captures the attitude of this off-the-beaten-path bride!

Just a shot of a gorgeous table during set up to brighten your day!  Still to go: place cards and straightening the succulents. After that - showtime! Thank you to Artflower for the beautiful flowers and Renee at Renascent Photography for the beautiful shots!

Intimate Ceremony with Family & Friends, at La Finisterra in Playa Hermosa

Enjoyed crystal clear skies for an intimate morning ceremony with family & friends at La Finisterra in Playa Hermosa. Congratulations Chris & Leah!

Intimate Family Wedding in Playa Hermosa

What a great family! We so enjoyed working with them in creating their Costa Rica Adventure Wedding Getaway. Anne and David each had 2 daughters and this getaway brought their family together as one. The girls were involved in the planning process, picking their dresses and orange flowers. And Anne create an amazing necklace, a work of art really, out of family heirlooms. They enjoyed an adventure with Whitewater Rafting, Canopy Zipline, Snorkeling, and of course, a Wedding Ceremony on the beach of Playa Hermosa. Thanks to Bruno Dubreil for the photos!
