Kate & Dan’s Tamarindo Beach Wedding
Tamarindo Diria Resort, Costa Rica
Kate and Dan had their wedding ceremony on a gorgeous lawn area at Tamarindo Diria Resort in Costa Rica before susnet. There’s a wonderful location the resort has for wedding ceremonies on a large lawn area that overlooks Tamarindo Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
Before the ceremony, Kate wanted us to take photos of her and her bridesmaid preparing. When we arrived, they were wearing these great robes with a tropical design that went perfect with the venue and Costa Rica. We took some photos of them as they prepared to capture those great moments between brides and bridesmaids on wedding days that so often happen while preparing. When the bride was ready to put on her wedding gown and the bridesmaids their dresses, we stepped out for a bit and then returned to snap a few more photos of them in their wedding-day attire before heading to the location for the ceremony.
Since it was such a lovely location, we took photos of the entire area and arrangements, then of the wedding guests and groom and groomsmen as they waited fro the bridesmaids and bride to arrive. After the bridal party went to their places near the altar, two groomsmen escorted the bride to her father, who then walked her down the aisle to the alter where Dan was eagerly waiting.
The ceremony was gorgeous and moving! Though it was a bit hot, everyone was at the edge of their seat as Kate and Dan said their vows and exchanged rings. When they kissed, everyone stood up and celebrated and stayed standing as the newlyweds left the hand in hand, followed by the bridesmaid and groomsmen.
Kate and Dan wanted some quick family photos and some of the bridal party and then themselves on the beach, so we headed to the beach. If you get married in Tamarindo, know that the beaches are usually full of people, so beach photos can be complicated. While taking pictures of Kate and Dan, a child wearing no clothing from the waste down jumped in front of them and began dancing around. The were good sports. They kept smiling and we kept taking photos.
Thank you Kate and dan for trusting us with the photos of such an important day. We wish you the best. - Lindsay and Andrés
