I can probably say with great confidence that no wedding reception in the history of Los Altos in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica ever was as much fun as Amiee & Adam’s big day. Let me tell you friends, these peeps know how to throw down. You mix in novelty sunglasses, carnival style props and masks, a Costa Rican comparsa, a groom who is a big kid at heart and friends who know every single word to Biz Markie’s 90’s hip hop classic “Just a friend” – and you have a most killer wedding on your hands.

Dressed to the nines and looking every inch dapper and lovely – Amiee & Adam did not need to worry about Louboutins getting stuck in the sand or rolling up tuxedo pants because the tide was rolling in. Costa Rica has amazing beaches, but their non beach destination weddings are not to be outdone. Their wedding took place amidst the greenery and rainforest at Los Altos with a stunning view of the ocean. It was technically the beginning of rainy season, and Mother Nature showed us what she had with a ton of rain at the beginning of their wedding day. The bonus: just before the ceremony it all cleared up, and the greens were all looking greener then green which made for stunning backdrops.

Larissa Banting of Weddings Costa Rica created and designed a magical ceremony and reception that made everyone wish the night would never end. There were smiles for miles, hi jinx and hilarity, and a non stop, no holds barred, take no prisoners, shake what yo mamma gave you dance party. Manuel Antonio has never been the same since.
