Location: *Non Beach Wedding
Lately, I’ve been traveling often to the Arenal area to photograph many elopements in the Fortuna Waterfall. The location is simply magical and it’s the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony. This is one of my favorite weddings. Erin and Zack are a young couple that has been waiting since high school to get married. Her dress was one of my favorite ones ever. That vintage vibe makes me smile… she actually got it at Macy’s! I was honored to be part of this day. They got ready at the Arenal Springs Resort, beutiful place! You might want to check it out if you are planning to get married in Arenal. Naraya Hotel is gorgeous as well and they have excellent food! Thanks to Meghan Cox! She is THE one to go to plan and coordinate an elopement/wedding in this area…
In case you where wondering if real people are as beautiful as the magazines, just check out Maridelie and Diego on their wedding day. This was absolutely the living experience of a gorgeous couple, completely in love and sweet with each other and everyone around them. The wedding took place in a not so common place in Costa Rica: Hotel Villa Blanca in San Ramón. The location is surrounded with mountains, nature and wind. The continent was represented with people from Argentina, USA, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica! Not a bad crowd at all, specially if you wanted to learn some new dancing moves.
Jon and Deb from the UK are a quiet and simple couple. They wanted a quiet and simple ceremony, the lavish nature was their decoration and their love for each other was all the ambiance needed. The location was Concepción de San Isidro de Heredia, if you search for the nearest hotel, you might find there are not too many around that area, I was pleasently surprised to see these two wanting to experience a non touristy place and still appreciate costarican culture and people, in the middle of nowhere fancy. They rented a room/apartment in a corgeous property with an amazing view, but enough of describing. Check out the photos!
Elopements are my favorite events by far! Dana and Gary planned this special day a while ago and even though they’ll have a big celebration with family and friends in a couple of weeks they decided to promise to each other their love by themselves and live the moment to the fullest. Just me, the lawyer and musician where part of their special moment and we felt truly honored.
These guys worked around their low budget in such a way that even Style Me Pretty was impressed! I’m so exited to have this beautiful wedding featured in the Little Black Book blog. Check out the full post here!
