Sunset Beach Wedding – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica – January 2018

Love this tropical beach wedding!
The bride and groom both wore white; a stunning contrast the colorful tropical flowers. The wedding party and guests were all staying at the Buena Vista Villas in the heart of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The sunset ceremony took place at the private Tulemar Beach, within the grounds. After the ceremony  the wedding party enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the beach, under the beautifully lit trees. The party then went back to the villa for a the wedding celebration, love the mini gift bottles of the tequila. The reception on the balcony was beautifully decorated with colorful flowers and candles.
A wonderful wedding!

Intimate Beach Elopement – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica 2014

This intimate beach elopement ceremony took place on the Tulemar Beach in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The bride and groom were staying in the Buena Vista Villas, my wife and I met them at their villa before going down to the beach. The afternoon was absolutely perfect, the weather the ceremony and the sunset could not have been better. My wife, Katharine, conducted the ceremony, (as the couple had been legally married in the US, she was able to be a non-legal officiate). After the ceremony we took a few aerial photos and then got some portraits using various backdrops. The bride was particularly keen to get in the water for some “Trash the Dress” photos. As the sun went down I surprised them with a wish lantern, it was such a special moment, my wife and I both felt moved just watching them…an amazing couple, best of luck!

Colorful Wedding in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica May 2014

This wedding was just filled with wonderful colors; from the “Something Blue” shoes; to the orange Tiger Lillies and Rose petals.
As there was a little rain, the wedding took place on the balcony in the couples rental house at Buena Vista Villas in Manuel Antonio. After the ceremony the sky cleared and we went to the private beach below Buena Vista and got some really fun photos. The wedding party then when to Emilio’s Cafe for a sumptuous reception dinner. A fun and colorful wedding, planned by Karen at Tropical Occasions; even a little rain could not dampen this day!
