Wedding at Flamingo Beach Resort Guanacaste Costa Rica 2015

This beautiful wedding took place at the Flamingo Beach Resort, in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The resort is located directly on the beach surrounded by tropical rainforest. I met the bride and her family and friends in her room for some candid getting-ready photos. I quickly got a few photos of the groom before going to the beach for the ceremony. The ceremony took place on the beach in front of the Pacific Ocean. After the ceremony we took some romantic sunset couple portraits and got some fun pictures too. The wedding party then headed back to the resort for the reception dinner and celebrations. A beautiful day!

This beautiful wedding took place on the white sand beach in front of the stunning Hotel RUI in Costa Rica. The bride got ready in her suite with family and friends, and then the father of the bride walked her to the beach were the ceremony took place. After a moving ceremony, the bride and groom were toasted with champagne. We headed to the garden to take a few group photos and the heavens opened with a tropical downpour. Luckily the rain was short-lived and we could return to the beach for some magical photographs. We were blessed with an epic rainy season sunset!
