Wedding at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort Montezuma Costa Rica January 2014

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!

Commitment Ceremony on Montezuma Beach Costa Rica April 2012

This intimate commitment ceremony took place on the stunning Montezuma Beach. This was my first same-sex ceremony and it could not have been a nicer couple, it was very relaxed – and I am really happy with how the photos came out. Montezuma is one of my favorite parts of this coast as it has a lot of exposed volcanic rock, which makes for some dramatic photos.


This commitment ceremony was organized by the couple they stayed at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma.
