Costa Verde Beach Wedding
I was honored to be the photographer for Ashley and David’s Costa Verde Beach Wedding in Manuel Antonio. As Ashley and David are big fans of the outdoors, Costa Rica seemed the like the perfect place to have an intimate wedding ceremony with a select group of twelve friends and family members.
Although Hotel Costa Verde has a lot of ceremonies on the property, it also provides beautiful set ups at the beach. The playitas part of the beach was chosen as there are usually less people there, and it also has the beautiful rock formations at that end.
After the ceremony, Ashley and David suggested we climb up the big rock for photos. It’s challenging climb that can only be done at low tide, and I’m glad that they were daring enough to go for it. Once we made it to the top, we were rewarded with stunning view in all directions: ocean and park on one side, and jungle and hills on the other.
I am happy to say we all made it down the rock in one piece and arrived in time for the dances. Ashley and David had an awesome idea to have their first dances on the beach rather than at the reception area. It made for some very emotional dances not just between Ashley and David, but also with Ashley and her father, and David and his mom.
