Chasity & Ryan were originally planning a destination wedding in Costa Rica. Part way through the planning, they opted to shift gears and chose to elope instead. Chasity works for David’s Bridal so she is surrounded by the wedding world every day – having a fun and relaxed day was what these two lovebirds had in mind. It was a true treat to be their wedding photographer to capture all of the moments with a front row seat to the awesomeness of their big day. Perhaps one of my fave moments happened just following their ceremony. With shiny new rings on their fingers, they both gave each other the finger to show them off – their ring finger of course. What did you think? We all laughed our faces off. Photographic evidence above to share the hilarity with everyone. Oh behave!
There are some truly breathtaking places in Costa Rica for an elopement and the luxury boutique hotel and villas at Cala Luna in Playa Langosta is a total favourite. The amazing beach which is a hop, skip and a jump away has a sense of seclusion and intimacy. The tide was out which gave way to some pretty fabulous rocks which Chasity & Ryan were up for exploring. And the private villa at Cala Luna complete with their own pool that Chasity & Ryan stayed in was totally rockstar. Alexsandria, the wedding planner at Cala Luna, took care of all the details big and small – she even helped Chasity do up her wedding dress.
In spite of some pretty strong rain that day, the clouds cleared up following the ceremony and the sun was shining down as if nothing had ever happened. Thank you for having me as the one guest at your wedding – I loved it.
