Jewish-fusion wedding ceremony in Costa Rica at Dreams Las Mareas.

We know you will love the photos of this Dreams Las Mareas Resort Costa Rica beach wedding.  Amanda and Wayne make a great couple, and their wedding was amazing.  Amanda and her bridesmaids had their wedding-day makeup and hair done in the resort’s spa and then went to one of their preferred suites to get dressed.  By the way, Dreams Las Mareas’ preferred suites are simply amazing places to get prepared given their size and amount of gorgeous natural lighting.

Their somewhat Jewish-fusion wedding was under the tree canopy at one of the resort’s three locations for beach weddings.  Right after the wedding, we went closer to the shoreline for family and bridal party photos, and then to take bride and groom photos at sunset.  While we took these photos, their friends and family enjoyed cocktail hour at casual location by the pools with beach views.

Their wedding reception was at a private location on the resort with great mountain views.  The newlyweds made their grand entrance, danced their first dance, listened to speeches by family and friends, cut their wedding cake, and then danced the night away.

We’d like to give a special thanks to Dreams Las Mareas Weddings for organizing such an amazing wedding.
