Sarah & Wes – Destination Wedding in Costa Rica

I’ve had the absolute pleasure of photographing Sarah & Wes for their engagement photos back in the summer and I could instantly tell how much of a connection they had. These two are the sort of people that are a dream to work with – laid back, great sense of humor, smitten for each other and incredibly good looking to boot! ūüėČ Finding themselves in a bit of a¬†dilemma¬†during their wedding planning process, Sarah and Wes decided to move their hometown wedding idea to someplace a little more tropical. I, of course, was ¬†ecstatic¬†when they asked me to come along and photograph their incredible day. Costa Rica is an incredible country filled with amazing views, lively energy and incredibly wonderful people – what a perfect place to tie the knot! My husband Kyle and I ran all through their resort that day taking in all the scenery and trying not to look like a sweaty mess before the ceremony. ūüėČ I could spend a good deal of time just talking about how wonderful it is to watch two peoples so much in love commit their lives to each other (I’m such a mushy romantic) but I will keep this short. Sarah and Wes, thank you for giving Kyle and I an incredible experience to photograph and for being such fantastic clients and friends. You and both your families opened up to us to quickly that we felt more like family than being on the job! I can remember our exact reaction to when we heard our cab had arrived to take us away – “ohhh, can’t we stay just five more minutes!?”. Thank you all for being a barrel of fun and showing everyone how to throw a fantastic celebration! I wish you two laughter, adventures and, above all, love as you continue your lives together.

Sarah and Wes had a gorgeous suite overlooking the entire resort and beach they stayed at. Along with that view, they had the pleasure of experiencing iguanas, birds and the adorable, Coati!
These little guys had visited them most days during their stay and it was JUST before Sarah put her dress on that they popped out on the balcony to wish her well (and get some free snickey snacks)!
Crazy cool, hey?

    Sarah - Ashley, you guys did such an amazing job of the photos! Wes and I are so happy that you and your hubby were there to share our special day with us. Not only do you take gorgeous pictures but you guys have such a great energy and really enhanced our wedding experience. You were the cherry on top of a scrumptious sundae — it just wouldn’t have been the same without you. Thanks again and we are looking forward to the rest of the pics. Much love,
    Sarah and Wes
