Mallory and Lee’s Costa Rica destination wedding was held at the Parador Resort and Spalocated in Manuel Antonio, a premier eco-luxury resort that resides high above the Central Pacific  coastline, built on 12 acres of rainforest, just minutes from the Manuel Antonio National Park.  Mallory and Lee utilized Silvia Hernandez, the wedding coordinator from the Parador, for planning and executing their perfect destination wedding.

Diego and Sofia, the wedding photographers, started by capturing photos of Mallory’s beautiful white wedding gown, colorful flower bouquet and Mallory having her hair styled, all the while Lee was preparing in another room.   Next Mallory continued by applying her makeup and adorning her white lace wedding gown with all of it’s intricate embroidered details, allowing the wedding photographers to capture some fantastic photos of Mallory all dressed for the occasion and ultimately donning the white lace wedding veil.

A beautiful ceremony captured in professional photos

The ceremony was held on a scenic vista overlooking the Pacific Ocean, a curious sloth watched all the commotion as the groom, guests, family and friends walked the pathway, to where the ceremony was to be.  The wedding procession started with the bridesmaids and groomsmen walking the path to the ceremony, followed by Mallory and her mother, as the guests and Lee all looked on.  It was a wonderful ceremony and the looks on Mallory and Lee’s faces as they exchange wedding vows is absolutely precious, followed by the kiss as they were pronounced husband and wife.

After  the ceremony the wedding photographers captured photos of the families, bridesmaids, groomsmen, all with the newly married couple, followed by some special photos of Mallory and Lee with  a giant tropical fig tree and rain-forest background, as well as some photos with Pacific Ocean backdrop.  Then they proceeded back to the Parador where the reception was held and shot photos of the guests, the colorful decorations and flowers that adorned the facility, the lovely wedding cake, the speeches that were given, the wedding couple cutting of the cake, all followed by the dances.  A beautiful day, wonderful people, all captured and memorized in a wedding photo story.
