How do I describe this beach wedding? ” Fun and romantic with a twist of vintage chique”…sounds about right! This fun-loving couple chose Playa Espadilla, Manuel Antonio’s famous beach for their wedding day; the aisle was decorated with whimsical bunches of soft pink roses. After the ceremony we took some photos on the beach, even climbed some trees and let off a beautiful wish lantern. Then the wedding party returned to their rental home, Casa Las Brisas; for a wonderful dinner on the roof top terrace….a perfect day!
This wedding was organized by wonderful Chelsea from Oasis Weddings in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Chelsea is also one of Costa Rica’s finest cake bakers and made their spectacular wedding cake.
Location: Manuel Antonio Beach and Casa Las Brisas a gorgeous vacation rental by Escape Villas
Another gorgeous wedding by the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma. This wedding took place on the secluded beach in front of the resort, the bride and groom stood under a driftwood and tropical flower arch. A perfect day!
This wedding couple love fishing, so what better to have their wedding but at a marina in Costa Rica. The Los Sueños Resort and Marina in Herradura is on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and has great sportfishing! Apart from the bride and groom the star of the show was their bulldog “Chancho” looking very suave in his bow-tie. The wedding took place on the lawn of the Los Sueños resort and then there was a reception dinner, dancing to a fantastic music group, a fabulously fun photo booth and to top it off fireworks. Did I mention the bride and groom like fishing? …check out the cake topper!
This colorful and fun wedding took place at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma last month. The wedding took place under a wooden arch on the beach in front of YlangYlang. After the ceremony we took photos on the beach and then the wedding party returned to YlangYlang for the reception. After a wonderful dinner, the bride and groom had their first dance, I LOVE the passion captured in these photos. Then onto the beach for a bonfire and fireworks…what an amazing night!
This whimsical romantic wedding took place at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort last weekend. The bride and her two sisters looked stunning with flowers woven into in their long tresses. The wedding took place under a wooden arch in Ylang Ylang’s beautiful gardens right next to the beach. The whole vibe of the wedding reminded me of Shakespeare’s a “Midsummer Night’s Dream”, specially when we started playing with the star projector (see second to last image). The last photo I took walking back along the beach from Ylang Ylang to the village in Montezuma. Looking out to the water, I saw the phosphorescence dancing in the waves. I magical end to a magically romantic wedding, all is missing is Puck on a surfboard!
Montezuma is a laid back artsy little town on the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. A perfect location for this couple from Canada! This elopement wedding took place on the beach, there was a little sprinkle during the ceremony, but that did not stop us…it’s lucky too!

This French Canadian couple got married on the beach in front of the beautiful Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma, Costa Rica. The wedding was conducted in both French and English. The bride wore red and she looked stunning and I love how the red pops out against the darkening sky. The group returned to the hotel for a fun reception party and then had a bonfire on the beach. Check out the last photo of the couple next to bonfire, I managed to capture a lightening bolt over the ocean for an epic wedding photo!
