I am so excited to share the first wedding I photographed in 2015! It was a very special one. I traveled to Costa Rica for Jacqui and Peter’s destination wedding in January. Jacqui and Peter are artists and their wedding reflected it. They both had custom-made wedding outfits. I loved Jacqui’s golden romper with a long flowy skirt over it! Jacqui and Peter had an intimate ceremony on the beach and a spectacular sunset happened for our portrait session. As it grew dark, they had their guests help with an installation with 1500 glow sticks in the sand.

A few words on how they envisioned their wedding from Jacqui and Peter:

“Peter and I have had a very colorful history in the arts community of Philadelphia, mainly in video and performance.  Our work plays with light and how it distorts our reality or gives us an experience of connection. We absolutely did NOT want to work at our wedding, but instead wanted to highlight the connection we had with our work.  After all this is how we met.

Many people asked us why we decided to get married in Costa Rica.  We’d been together for 9 years and didn’t have a clue or a vision yet of our wedding.  We had been to Costa Rica before and knew the country was an easy place to feel as if you were adventuring somewhere else, but it was also safe for our families with children and elderly.  It’s no secret that Peter and I love to travel!  We plan on dragging family members and children we have with us in the future. As for the planning of our wedding, I would have to say thanks to Larissa Banting for helping us to get started with our vision.  Getting a good planner really helps!

I also will say there is quite something about leaving the cold dreary PA weather and coming into a monkey and sloth-filled week.  It took everyone into a different time and space. 

My advice to couples planning a destination wedding is this. Roll with the punches and let go of your expectations.  It’s pretty much the only way to get through a destination wedding and the best way to live.  Remember where you are.  Whatever doesn’t work, you are in a beautiful place with your loved ones and that’s worth the trip there.”
