Real Costa Rica Wedding by Jennifer Harter Photography

Noyes and Brandon opted for the beautiful beaches of Santa Teresa for their seaside elopement in Costa Rica. In order to share the day with friends and family, the couple hired Jennifer Harter to document their intimate ceremony on the beach. Read below for photographer Jennifer's insider advice on why an elopement might just be perfect for you.

From photographer, Jennifer Harter:

Some people don’t dream about a big dream wedding. Some couples are more reserved, quiet and happy having a wedding with just the two of them. I prefer elopements too, and as a photographer they are my favorite. There is something very special about a couple running away somewhere beautiful to get hitched with no one else around. Elopements are romantic, relaxed, and stress-free. They about remembering exactly the things you should have on your mind - a union between two hearts. As a photographer I am crazy about elopements because each couple is able to enjoy each other, be present in the moment, and feel no rush during the day. And if you are worried about excluding friends and family, find yourself the perfect local photographer to document the day with stunning photos to share. If you are trying to decide if eloping is right for you just remember to do what feels the most comfortable to you, even if that means a tiny wedding with just you two.
