Bride and groom getting married at Peace Lodge & Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica.

We think you are going to enjoy the photos of Sue & Paul’s wedding at Peace Lodge & Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica. Sue and Paul took turns preparing for their wedding ceremony in one of the great villas overlooking the mountains.  When we arrived, the weather was decent, given we were in a cloud forest and it was the rainy season.  As soon as they were ready to head to the wedding ceremony site, it started to rain!

Niether rain, nor sleet, nor slow can stop love!!  Thankfully for the bride and groom, the gazeebo where the ceremony took place had a roof and great views of the Magia Blanca Waterfall.

Paul and Sue wanted a panoramic photo of them with the waterall and cloud forest in the background.  So, we took them to the platform not far from the base of the waterfall and took them, making sure they were coverered by an umbrella, but not too much.  They loved the photo!

A big thanks to Hazel Gonzalez from Peace Lodge & Waterfall Gardens Weddings for doing such fabulous job organizing their wedding!
