Sunset Wedding at Discovery Beach House – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica Dec 2015

Playa Espadilla in Manuel Antonio is a gorgeous beach for a wedding, a beautiful bay with the majestic backdrop of the Manuel Antonio National Park. This bride and groom choose the Discovery Beach House which is located just steps away from the beach. Randy Gritz from Celebrations Costa Rica created an elegant yet casual event which fitted the wedding couple perfectly. I met the bride at the beach house, surrounded by their children in a happy state of excitement over the wedding. We walked through the garden to the beach where the ceremony took place on the sand strewn with rose petals. After a moving ceremony we watched the sun dip in to the Pacific Ocean, and then the guests returned to the house for a wonderful dinner prepared by Desiree‘s Catering.  This family’s happiness and love flowed through the day, I hope I have captured some of that sparkle in these photos.

Elopement Wedding – Gulf of Papagayo Costa Rica – December 2014

This gorgeous wedding took place at the beautiful in Occidental Grand Papagayo Resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The hotel is located just above it’s own private beach “Playa Culebra”. The intimate ceremony took place on the resort’s sweeping lawn overlooking the bay, the bride and groom stood under a white arbor decorated with tropical flowers matching the brides bouquet. After the ceremony we headed to the beach, the bay has a mix of sand, shell and volcanic rock, perfect for some interesting photos! We got some unique images with reflections in tide pools and the gorgeous light, I even took some aerial photos with my drone. This beautiful wedding was planned by Randy from Celebrations Costa Rica.

Sunset Beach Wedding – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica July 2013

This was such a fun and vibrant wedding and a joy to photograph. This young couple tied the knot in front of 50 friends and family on Playa Espadilla in the heart of Manuel Antonio. The bride and groom walked down a rose petal aisle and said their vows on the sand under the almond trees on the beach. Most of the wedding party left their shoes at the shoe valet to walk barefoot on the beach. After some beach fun and family, group and bride and groom photographs the wedding party went up to the Hotel Karahe to for the reception dinner, followed by dancing and a beach lantern release.

This fun and delightful wedding was planned Randy from Celebrations Costa Rica and held at the Hotel Karahe in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

Exciting news is that I am currently building a new Wedding Photography Website, so please bear with me and check back to my website in a week or so. To see more of my work and latest happening in Costa Rica and the wedding world visit my Facebook Page.
