A wedding in the Osa Peninsula? A couple hours drive, followed by an hour boat ride along a jungle rivers and into Drakes Bay, sounds like an adventure, but that is only the beginning!
This wedding couple visited the Copa de Arbol Hotel on vacation and decided that this was where they had to get married surrounded by their closest friends and family. The Copa de Arbol Hotel is new luxury resort in an area renowned as the most untouched on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. The hotel is not accessible by car, only a short boat ride from Drakes Bay or an hours hike along a coastal jungle trail.
At the end of the night, I had beautiful moonlit hike back along the trail to my accommodation in Drakes Bay…it’s all part of the job of being a Photographer is Costa Rica, and going that extra mile….literally!
Location- Copa de Arbol, Caletas, Nr. Drakes Bay, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
Hope you enjoy these photos I love the light in the beach portraits, just magical. I will be posting photos soon from another night hike I did with a local entomologist in Drake Bay.
An ivory rose petal aisle over looking the Pacific Ocean, was the scene for this beautiful wedding at Zephyr Palace in Villa Caletas, Costa Rica. The guests were seated in see-through chairs..perfect not to interrupt the ocean view. The bride looked stunning in a gorgeous ivory gown whilst the bridesmaids were in colorful silks. The wedding party then had a wonderful meal the tables decorated in colorful mix of purple and topical oranges. The party then kicked of with music and dancing until late…a pleasure to photograph! Another great wedding organized by Weddings Costa Rica.
Villa Caletas is spectacular venue for a sunset wedding on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast, the views and the ambiance are hard to beat. This beautiful wedding was organized by the amazing team at Weddings Costa Rica , their attention to detail and creativity once again made a perfect intimate wedding ceremony and celebration. The wedding ceremony took place at sunset on Villa Caleta’s private terrace and the wedding reception dinner was also at the hotel.
Another beautiful beach wedding in April. This was a fun wedding to shoot and there was beautiful light on this sunny afternoon. The wedding ceremony took place on the Manuel Antonio beach in front of the Hotel Karahe with views of the Manuel Antonio National Park in the background. The wedding party were staying at Casa Fantastica, one of Manuel Antonio’s stunning rental properties available through Escape Villas.
This April wedding ceremony took place at Villa Caletas; a spectacular venue for a wedding on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific. As it looked like it might rain, the wedding ceremony took place on a covered terrace in the hotel, the rain held off so we could go down to the hotel’s ocean front amphitheater, Zephyr Palace for some dramatic photos at sunset.
Another beautiful beach wedding in February. This elopement wedding ceremony took place on the Manuel Antonio beach with a gorgeous sunset. As it was just the couple we spent some time getting interesting photographs using the light, volcanic rocks, and even a monkey came to join the fun. I particularly like the photographs with the boat, these boats ferry people back and forth from the Manuel Antonio National Park, the captain kindly lent us his boat for a few minutes.
This wedding was organized by the Hotel Gaia in Manuel Antonio.
