Costa Rica Destination Wedding at Costa Verde

Destination beach weddings at Costa Verde Manuel Antonio are some of my favorite to shoot. And, this destination wedding featured a special guest at the reception! Jesus and Mariana chose to have their wedding at Costa Verde in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The couple’s personality out shined everyone else around them. The two were fun, personable, and easy going—the perfect clients for a destination wedding.

The ceremony of this destination wedding was very touching and light hearted. Mariana read a letter she had written the day she new she was going to marry Jesus many years prior to their engagement. There was hardly a dry eye. Still, Jesus kept everyone laughing with his side comments to the officiant during the ceremony. This Costa Rica destination wedding at Costa Verde was truly one of a kind!

After the ceremony the two cut loose with family and friends as the party started. The space was decorated with DJ lights, ocean views, and Jesus’ favorite iguana statue that he had jokingly asked the wedding coordinator to make a part of the wedding cake. Speeches were made by some of the couple’s closest friends and even the youngest wedding guests stayed up late for the party.

The day of the wedding there was no time to get portraits after the ceremony due to delays and the rain. Luckily, Jesus and Mariana had booked a day after session, leaving us plenty of time to take photos the next day. The two chose a more casual look for their session to stay cool and enjoy the morning stroll on the beach together. The weather was much better the morning after the wedding, allowing to get quality photos of them on the beach. I had a lot of fun photographing this fun and energetic couple at this Costa Rica Destination Wedding at Costa Verde.
