Waterfall Wedding at La Paz Waterfall Gardens – Costa Rica – Nov 2016

Love waterfalls? Nature? and want to get married in Costa Rica?
This couple does! They chose the La Paz Waterfall Gardens and Peace Lodge for their elopement in Costa Rica, a hotel and private nature reserve in the foothills of Poas Volcano. La Paz has five huge waterfalls along rainforest trails, plus lots of Costa Rica’s amazing tropical plants and wildlife.
The location of the wedding could not have been more stunning!
Marcelo Galli gave a beautiful ceremony on the private platform decorated with tropical flowers; surrounded by lush rainforest with a waterfall and river below. After the ceremony we took our time walking through the jungle trails, stopping at waterfalls along the way. At the lodge, the couple cut their scrumptious wedding cake and then we went to visit the very friendly and cheeky toucans. All the toucans are rescue birds and can no longer live in the wild, at feeding time they will hop right on your arm!
A wonderful wedding at La Paz filled with waterfalls and love!

Elopement at La Paz Waterfall Gardens – Costa Rica – 2015

This young, fun couple wanted an adventurous elopement somewhere beautiful and tropical. The La Paz Waterfall Gardens and Peace Lodge certainly is that, a hotel and private nature reserve in the foothills of Poas Volcano. La Paz has lots of attractions, including rainforest trails, five waterfalls, and lots of Costa Rica’s amazing wildlife (mainly rescue animals).
The location of the wedding was just stunning, surrounded by rainforest with a beautiful waterfall and river below. Marcelo Galli gave a moving ceremony, and then the couple went down to the base of the waterfall for a quiet moment together. We walked back through the jungle trails to the lodge, where they cut their wedding cake.
We went in the hummingbird garden and had an amazing time. The staff put a couple of hummingbird nectar feeders into the bride’s bouquet,the hummingbirds darted in and out and around the bouquet, a magical moment! We next met a couple of very friendly and cheeky toucans, they were hilarious!
A wonderful wedding at La Paz filled with adventure and laughter!

A Fairytale Castle Wedding Reception – San Jose Costa Rica – 2014

My last blog post was a gorgeous church wedding of a lovely couple that got married in San Joaquín de Flores, a beautiful little pueblo near Heredia in Costa Rica’s capital San Jose. This photo blog is the reception, what a blast! It took place at the Castillo de Mis Sueños in Alajuela; a fairytale castle built for events like this. We first got some photos on the rooftop terrace and then the party kicked of with a band, dancing and circus fun with clowns and dressing up. All in all an amazing party to celebrate this wonderful young couple.

Have a great weekend,
John
