Real Wedding – Tatiana & Patrick – Waterfall Ceremony

Tatiana & Patrick were married at the base of a beautiful tropical waterfall, deep in the rainforest of Costa Rica. This couple was focused on the experience and immediately drawn to a destination wedding in Costa Rica.  They worked with Meghan in making this an unforgettable day. When you are in a location as pretty as this, it is hard to believe it can adequately be captured on film but Toh Gouttenoire was up to the challenge.  We love the results and we are happy to say Love + Wander agrees as they have featured this waterfall ceremony in their blog.  Love + Wander's focus is to "live an inspired life" ... wouldn't you agree that being married in Costa Rica is doing just that?

We love receiving notes from couples after events!

This Thank You note from a recent bride greeted me in my inbox this morning. What a wonderful way to start the day! Had to share:

We wanted to thank you for all the hard work and time you put into making our wedding such a special and unforgettable event for my Husband and I and all of our guests.  As we think of our wedding day and the time we spent with you, what we feel is that our wedding surpassed all our wildest hopes and dreams.  We could not have asked for a more prefect event.  In sending this email too you and thinking of the trip, tears come to our eyes. We truly could not have asked for anything more.  We were pulled aside by each one of our guests and whispered to about how much this was a life changing event for each of them.  Words cannot express adequately our thanks and appreciation.  From the beautiful rainforest setting, gorgeous rooms, delicious food, professional wedding planning assistance, and expert staff; in my opinion there is no better place in the world to visit and celebrate a new beginning.

Thank you again so very much with all our heart.

Osa Peninsula Adventure

So sometimes we head way off the beaten path for adventures of our own... about a month ago this led us to cross the Osa Peninsula! Hiking through the jungle, sleeping in hammocks..this adventure inspired us to provide more extreme wedding getaways for you adventure seekers. Check out the photos of the hike here, the gold mining and prospecting here, and of Cano Island here courtesy of our friends at Toucan Maps who brought a better camera than we did.
