Real Costa Rica Wedding by Costa Vida Photography

Jessica and Ashton wanted to exchange their vows in complete privacy, so they walked north to the end of Playa Grande where there is a beautiful rock formation. They stood underneath a handmade dream catcher made by Jessica's father as they said their I do's. The two fathers held up the dream catcher and all of the guests surrounded the couple for the ceremony. It was a touching display of unity and love, as the guests were all a critical part of this bond that the couple shared with one another.

Jonathan of Costa Vida Photography says this is a great example of why you should not be afraid to travel off the beaten path on your wedding day. It is easy to get married on a popular beach near everything, but then you risk not only having multiple beach-goers in the background of your photos, but also the overall disturbance of people moving, talking, and walking around your ceremony. Jessica and Ashton were able to experience a purely private ceremony away from the distraction of everything else, which made for the perfect destination wedding.
