We shot Valeria & Jorge’s wedding in the cloud forest of San Ramon. And yes, it is every bit as magical as it sounds. Villa Blanca Cloud Forest & Nature Reserve is the perfect green destination wedding venue in Costa Rica. The hotel boasts a Five Green Leaves ranking – which only few hotels in Costa Rica have attained. They have a dairy ranch, self guided walking trails and it is surrounded by a biological reserve. It is pure eco-fabulosity.

A GREEN WEDDING IN A CLOUD FOREST AT VILLA BLANCA

Written by Jessica - Posted February 27th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

Vale & Jorge are proof that young love is really sweet. The adoring couple just graduated from University and could not wait to tie the knot. Their backdrop was magnificent: a cloud forest! Many couples assume that if they have a destination wedding in Costa Rica that the only option is barefoot in the sand “I do’s”. Not the case my fellow amigas and amigos. Costa Rica has so many incredible options including the small, off the beaten path town of San Ramon which is up high in the mountains. So high in fact that you are literally amongst the clouds. It is really incredible and something to be seen.

And for eco-conscious brides and grooms – Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel & Nature Reserve makes the perfect green destination wedding venue. An amazing eco conscious hotel surrounded by Los Angeles Private Biological Reserve. The hotel has retained Five Green Leaves by the CST – a ranking very few hotel properties in Costa Rica can boast. They have amazing self guided walking trails (complete with pretty rad wooden walking sticks) and a dairy ranch on the property – did I not say this place was eco-fabulous!

Vale & Jorge’s moving ceremony took place at the on-premise chapel which has an amazing ceiling comprised of 840 hand painted ceramic tiles. Truly a wonder! Our lovely bride, Vale is a designer and she actually designed her own stunning wedding dress and all the paper design pieces too. Which she had printed on environmentally friendly banana paper.

And a kinda hilarious lil’ anecdote – we sat at a table with some of Vale & Jorge’s family who only spoke Spanish and although we are slowly learning we are no Spanish linguists yet. We were engaging in friendly chit chat and someone asked “A Brit” how old he is (in spanish of course) and he very happily answered back with much conviction “quinientos” – which is 500! Amazeballs.
