Erika and Neil worked with one of Costa Rica’s top wedding planners, Barbara Broutin, from FourNineteen Weddings and chose the Hacienda Pinilla as their Costa Rica wedding destination, both top notch. Hacienda Pinilla’s 4,500 acres of historic ranch property, pristine beaches, and untouched natural landscapes offer guests room to roam and experience total tranquility and endless adventure. Here you will find a place where you can view spectacular sunsets as you walk along a secluded Costa Rica beach or enjoy a hike among ancient tropical trees that have been used for centuries to provide shade for local Sabaneros and their horses.
With such a beautiful day and wonderful couple as Erika and Neil, this was such an amazing wedding where everything was just so pure, from the wedding dress, bridal bouquet, venue and everything just flowed perfectly. The couple finished getting ready and started for the beach where the wedding ceremony took place, it was an amazing setting under some colorful flowering trees that provided some shade for the couple and guests along with producing a gorgeous backdrop overlooking the ocean as Guillermo walked Erika down the aisle as Neil looked on from the altar while the guitarist played Canon in D delivering a truly romantic environment for this special occasion. Erika and Neil exchanged wedding vows and you could see the joy and excitement as they walked the aisle ensuing the ceremony. Afterwards the day presented a wonderful sunset while Erika and Neil walked the lovely beach before heading back to the reception area and the Introduction of “Mr. & Mrs. Saiz” to the seated guests. A spectacular wedding day that went on into the night with the first dance, parents dance, speeches and toasts, and dancing!
