When the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica to shoot a wedding came up, it took about half a second for us to decide … heck yes!!

Darren and Krista had the most incredible wedding held at Casa Fantastica, one of the most incredible villas built into the mountainside of Manuel Antonio.  From the ceremony to the décor to the sky lanterns, every detail was perfect thanks to the amazing destination wedding planners Karen and Anahi from Tropical Occasions.

Krista is a do-it-yourself bride who customized her wedding dress and Ivanka Trump shoes for that little ‘extra touch’.  And who can resist the bow ties on these ring bearers!

Krista and Darren are such an amazing couple.  In place of wedding gifts they asked their friends and family instead to donate school supplies to one of the local schools in need.  When we arrived at the school to deliver the supplies everyone was so surprised to see all of the children running out in excitement to meet us and say thank you!  They even had a dance and performance planned for us.  It was such an incredible feeling to see these kids and their genuine excitement and gratitude, all thanks to this incredible couple and all of the amazing people who donated.Destination Wedding Planner: Tropical Occasions
