Magazine Style Shoot in Costa Rica

Thinking of going international for your wedding? Costa Rica is definitely a locale to consider! What’s not to love about gorgeous beaches, flourishing jungles, romantic starry nights, and natural landscapes to be admired, need I go on?

We got the chance to team up with awesome vendors to create a unique style shoot in Costa Rica featured in Enchanted Brides Magazine. We stayed at the luxurious Los Altos de Eros Boutique Hotel & Spa. “The Heights of Love” resort is simply stunning! Located on a mountainside overlooking the serene jungle, this is a perfect place for an intimate wedding ceremony and reception.

We had so much fun in Costa Rica! We ventured to the beach, through the jungle, and around the town for some amazing engagement shots. A picturesque sunset wedding ceremony was set by the pool with softly lit lanterns, adorned by beautiful white flowers, and engulfed in the green seas of the Costa Rican forest. A charming reception followed soon after, complete with rich wood, lush greenery, simple touches of white, and lit again with the romantic glow of the lanterns and the last bit of the sunset. Simply enchanting.

Not only is this place gorgeous, there’s also plenty to do: cooking classes taught by incredible Chef Andrea, massages and services at the Spa de Eros, yoga, adventure tours, leisurely guided jungle tours, beach days, ziplining, shopping at nearby towns, or just relax and enjoy the view by the pool. This intimate boutique hotel is the perfect getaway where you will be treated like royalty by their incredible staff and dine on the most delicious delicacies by in house Chef Andrea.

Check out some of our favorite images from the shoot below and the feature on Enchanted Brides Blog.

Bling, bling

Hi Loveys,

So who remembers the scene from the movie Bride Wars where Emma gets engaged and calls her bf Liv to share her exciting news? Liv immediately asks about the ring, “Color? Cut? Clarity? Carat?” We lovveee bling and rings can come in all kinds of pretty with different cuts, colors, shapes, and sizes. Styles can range from vintage to traditional to modern and so much more. So how does one decide?

Here are some of the stunners we have seen so far:

Classic Round Cut

True Love in Wynwood by way of Key West
blueyeimages_jackie_prev0002_web

“I’ve liked her since middle school but she always had a boyfriend,” that’s what Darry had to say when asked how he met Miss Jackie. It wasn’t until high school that Darry got his chance and they have been inseparable ever since. Jackie entered our “Win an Engagement Session” contest and when asked what her dream engagement session would look like she said she would love something unique and colorful. This couple loves music, dancing, art, and fashion. They are Key West natives but opted for a more “funky” feel. Wynwood, Miami was the perfect choice for this modern romance. Congratulations on your engagement Jackie + Darry! It was a pleasure capturing such a pure and sweet love.
