Abby and Kevin employed the services of wedding planner Barbara Broutin from FourNineteen Weddings for their wedding at the new El Mangroove, hotel in Bahía Papagayo, Costa Rica.  I have to say that every wedding Barbara plans totally amazes me with spectacular photos ideas and each one surpasses the previous.  El Mangroove a new hotel and spa in northern Guanacaste also proved to be a wonderful wedding location for Abby and Kevin’s Costa Rica destination wedding.

The day starts with the wedding photographers capturing photos of Abby and Kevin preparing for their special day.  Abby had a beautiful bridal bouquet of white & green roses, white & green hydrangea, white freesia, white cymbidium orchids, white cala lilies, while Kevin had a white orchid lei.  The wedding photographers were able to get some great shot of Abby getting ready for the ceremony and also Abby and Kevin’s first look before the ceremony.  It is wonderful to be able to capture the looks and expressions of special moments that will be cherished forever.

The ceremony took place on the beach in front of El Mangroove, there is a wonderful panoramic shot of this while all the guests looked on as Abby and Kevin exchanged wedding vows and were pronounced husband and wife July 26th, 2014 in Costa Rica.  After the ceremony the wedding photographers utilize the beautiful grounds of El Mangroove and the setting sun for some marvelous shots of the newlywed couple and the natural beauty that engulfs Costa Rica.

Then the celebration starts at the Matiss Restaurant at the Mangroove.  FourNineteen does some of the most spectacular work with to die for table arrangements, lighting, center pieces, etc., everything down to the last detail is covered to make Abby and Kevin’s dream wedding come true.  As the party goes on, the photographers capture the cutting of an outstanding wedding cake and then the couple first dance and the parents dance.  A truly memorable day and evening that will be immortalized forever in blissful photos.
