Couple getting married in Costa Rica at Peace Lodge & Waterfall Gardens.

You will love the gorgeous photos of this wedding at Peace Lodge & Waterfall Gardens of Janet and Thad.   This lovely couple prepared for their wedding ceremony in the amazing Deluxe Suites at Peace Lodge.  Janet had her hair and makeup done in the large bathroom with a waterfall surrounded by tropical plants, as well as on the balcony with great views fo the cloud forest.  Thad put on his fabulous white suite in the suite.

They said “I do” at the gazebo secluded deep in a cloud forest that has a superb view of a magnificent waterfall.  We took their bride and groom wedding photos at the terrace at that base of this waterfall and on the shore of a river that has views of an even more amazing waterfall in the background.  Janet and thad ended their back in their suite, where they cut their wedding cake and had us take a few more photos of them in front of the fireplace.

We’d like to thank Hazel Gonzalez, Peace Lodge & Waterfall Gardens Weddings in-house planner, for the amazing job she did on Janet and Thad’s wedding.
