Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. Friends and family gather together to wish you and your new spouse all the best in your new life together. Life takes on a whole new meaning as you start thinking in terms of ‘we’ and ‘us’ instead of ‘I’ and ‘me’.
For those that love the sea, there’s nothing quite like a beach wedding to put the icing on the cake. Imagine the splash of the surf, the grit of the sand between your toes, the salty sea breeze playing with her dress and hair. Just you and your spouse-to-be and the people who love you most. Can it be much more special than that?
That’s exactly what it was for Christopher and Haley. Take a moment and enjoy the delightful photos from their fresh beach wedding and you’ll find yourself dreaming of your own special day on the beach.
The Bride and Groom: College Sweethearts
Christopher and Haley, like so many young lovers, met during college and were together for several years as they finished up school. Being adventurous people, they set off to study abroad in Europe for their last semester. Christopher decided to pop the question in nostalgic Amsterdam.
For their wedding, they wanted to do something different and adventurous. They wanted to go somewhere where they could be outdoors and have a good time with their closest friends and family.
Costa Rica is perfect for that! There is so much to see and do and people with even a smidgeon of a sense of adventure will have a good time. And so, it was settled. They wanted to do a beach wedding in Costa Rica with time to enjoy their trip and get some thrills in.
The Venue: Costa Verde
There’s something romantic about packing everybody up and running off to the beach to get married. But as romantic as that sounds, it isn’t really comfortable and your day won’t go off exactly how you envision.
For that reason, it’s important to choose a great venue. They should have a nice, comfortable place for getting ready, but still be close to the beach so it’s easy for everyone to get there. Ideally, the venue should set up chairs and simple decorations to add the perfect touch of personalization to your beach wedding. And, of course, a comfortable place for a reception where you can enjoy delicious food and good company.
Lucky for Christopher and Haley, Costa Verde exists.
The venue has everything you could possibly need for a one-stop destination wedding. There is lots of space for all your guests to stay (and the view from the bridal suite is ah-mazing!) The property holds plenty of interesting places for photo ops–a helipad with a spectacular ocean view, a renovated plane that you can stay in, a hanging suspension bridge in the jungle, and so much more!
There are also several restaurants to choose from so you can have a large wedding reception or enjoy a more intimate affair. Plus, with top-notch wedding planning services, your day will go off without a hitch with minimal effort on your part. Check out more about Costa Verde here,
The Ceremony: An Epic Beach Wedding
Christopher and Haley wanted just enough photo coverage to document their picturesque beach wedding and get a few photos with their guests afterward. They opted for a two-hour package which was the perfect amount of time to get these amazing shots.
I hope you enjoy these photos and let them inspire you for your own epic beach wedding in Costa Rica!
