Once upon a time a girl named Stacy walked into a restaurant to inquire about a summer job as a waitress. The restaurant was owned by a boy named Ari. Stacy got the job. But 2 weeks later Ari fired her. He was smitten with Stacy and wanted her to be his girlfriend. She was smitten with Ari too. They fell in love, got married at beautiful Punto de Vista in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica and are well on their way to living happily ever after.
Stacy and Ari’s wedding ceremony took place at the villa as well – with a stunning view of Manuel Antonio beach and the ocean. They got married under one the of the prettiest chuppahs we have ever seen. Ari’s Grandfather was around for the Holocaust and had been taken into hiding by a brave non-Jewish family. Many decades later Ari’s father visited with this family to thank them and they had knitted a truly gorgeous table cloth for him. This beautiful piece became the chuppah under which Ari & Stacy said I do in front of their family and friends. We were so taken with the meaning and beauty of the chuppah – we just had to capture a silhouette of the couple in front of it. Three cheers to the 2 wedding guests who held it up for us in order to capture this image. Couldn’t have done it without you!
The rooftop deck at Punto de Vista was beautifully transformed by Wedding Planner & Designer extraordinaire Larissa Banting and her crew of magical elves at Weddings Costa Rica to create a stunning and sparkly reception.
Guests then danced the night away in true style on the main floor of the villa. The room was filled with love and laughter and loads of great dance moves. A perfect night for this love story.
