Alissa & Barton's Manuel Antonio beach wedding at Parador Resort & Spa.

We hope you enjoy the photos from this wedding at Parador Resort & Spa in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica featuring Alissa & Barton. Alissa and her bridesmaids preparing in one of the hotel’s stunning suites that has amazing ocean and mountain views while Barton and his groomsmen got ready in a suite closer to the bar. Due to foul weather, their wedding ceremony had to be moved from Manuel Antonio beach to a covered area at the hotel, which didn’t damper the excitement!

A special thanks to Harold Rojas, Parador Resort & Spa’s wedding planner, and his team for the wonderful job they did organizing the wedding.
