Villa El Cantico Wedding Photography
Dara and Ash decided to invite their closest friends and family to their wedding in Villa El Cantico, here in Manuel Antonio. It was a very intimate wedding with about 12 guests, just the perfect size to fit onto the Villa’s balcony that overlooks the ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park. It was a great ceremony with the officiate also playing the guitar as the bride walked in. After the ceremony and a quick champagne toast, we headed down to the beach for some family photos and a portrait session for Dara and Ash. Dara and Ash were having so much fun, and enjoying each other’s company, I basically just had to hang back and catch all the tender moments between the two of them. The sky had a few clouds that cooled down the afternoon a bit, and also made for some real dramatic clouds for the sunset. As the sun went down the guests started sending up Sky Lanterns. This is a great tradition and an excellent way to end a wedding by the beach. It gets everyone involved from the kids to the adults, and it is so beautiful to see all the sky lanterns heading off into the night.
