Light Up the Sky: Epic Wedding Lanterns in Costa Rica
In July I was very fortunate to photograph Nina and Phil’s wedding in Manuel Antonio. The wedding ceremony was held at the luxurious Punto de Vista Villa. By coincidence this villa is on the road down to one of my favorite surf spots.
This is one of the newer rental villas, and the view is just spectacular. The whole layout and design make for great photography. Nina and Phil were just awesome the whole time, totally relaxed and you could tell they were enjoying themselves at every moment.
After the ceremony, we headed down to Playitas beach for a quick portrait session. The weather was perfect, there was some fear of rain earlier in the day, but when we got down there were just as few clouds in the sky.
Nina and Phil also brought some sky wedding lanterns along to light and set off. These were a great touch, and after a little a few minutes of trying to sort it out, they were able to get all the lanterns off without major injury.
We made it back to Punto de Vista right as it was getting dark. Just in time for some speeches and a little dancing.
