Couple toast with champagne after getting married in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.

We hope you enjoy these great wedding photos we took at Hotel Arenal Kioro in La Fortuna, of Gabby & Tony’s elopement.  Hotel Arenal Kioro is a gorgeous place for elopements and intimate weddings given its romantic gazebo, lush tropical gardens, and great suites with views of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding rainforest.

Thanks for Francinia – Hotel Arenal Kioro’s wedding planner – and her team for making Gabby & Tony’s wedding a marvelous experience!
