Today we’re heading to Costa Rica for Nataly and Scott’s nature inspired destination wedding! The couple tied the knot on December 7th, 2019 at a charming Bed and Breakfast called Sueño del Mar in Tamarindo. Elegantly dressed in Pronovias, Nataly had the time of her life with her husband, family and friends in one of the most stunning destinations in the world.
See more below from this adorable couple’s big day, and special thank you to Raw Shoots Photography for sharing their lovely images with us!
FROM THE COUPLE:
ABOUT THE COUPLE
I am from Costa Rican and Scott is from the USA. We are currently living in Florida and love to travel to Costa Rica every time we can to spend some time to relax on the beach and go fishing (Scott loves fishing ).
THE COUPLE’S WISH LIST
When we fist reached out to the photographers, we just wanted one simple but very important thing – to have real memories from our wedding day. We wanted to relax with our friends and family and just spend some quality time with them. It’s very hard to get all the family and closest friends altogether on one single day, specially living so far away, so this time was going to be very special and we wanted to document the love we share with all of them.
THE COUPLE’S OVERALL EXPERIENCE
Words can’t describe how much we loved our wedding day. It was way more than we expected it to be. What was the best part? Having our two families from different countries reunited for the first time ever. Everybody traveled to Costa Rica to celebrate this special day and we got to experience God’s presence in the most beautiful way possible, surrounded by the people that we love the most in a place that that means so much for us.
We couldn’t have done it without Mil Besos, our wedding planner. I’m from Costa Rica and our dream was to get married there. My husband and I love this country so much. I tried to plan the wedding on my own for the first weeks but quickly realized it was almost impossible considering we live in a different country but Mil Besos made everything look easy. Our guests kept mentioning how beautiful and detailed everything was. The only bad thing? It went by too quickly. I wish we could do it all over again 1000 times. At least we have some incredible amazing pictures that capture the most magical moments on a day that we will always remember.
My husband and I are ocean people. We love diving, fishing, and going on the boat as much as we can. The ocean means a lot to both of us. It is there that we are the happiest and most fulfilled. Our decoration is all about nature and water.
We got engaged in Hermosa Costa Rica but decided to get married in Tamarindo because we both love it and it was the perfect balance between the local culture experience, and good restaurants, nightlife, and a lot of activities to do.
THE WEDDING DRESS
“Nataly is young and full of energy. Her dress was a true reflection of that – pure energy and joy. We think that it was a perfect fit for a wedding in this location, classy and comfortable enough for the wedding on a tropical beach. By the party time, she changed into a 2nd dress which was more relaxed.” – Raw Shoots Photography.
ADVICE FOR NEWLY-ENGAGED COUPLES
Enjoy every single minute of your wedding, really take time to breathe and be present as much as you can. Enjoy those eye to eye contact moments with your husband. Dance and have endless fun! That moment is to celebrate your love with your family and friends. Hug everybody and make sure to have a piece of dessert, I didn’t and everybody was talking about how good it was lol.
Special thank you to Nataly, Scott and Raw Shoots Photography for sharing this incredible destination wedding with us!
