Ahhhh Peggy and Jason, so much to say about these two…!!! What a sweet, caring , fun couple!
Jason’s brother and sister in law (Brandon & Sasha) connected me with this beautiful couple. They lived in my same beach town, and we had known each other for years… so when Jason and Peggy chose Costa Rica as their wedding destination, they didn’t hesitate to recommend me. I’ll be forever thankful, because shooting this wedding was incredibly memorable!
Since I arrived at Peggy’s room I could sense the warm welcome , all smiles and laughter , bridesmaids and moms having a blast! Girls getting their hair and makeup done, toasts and finishing touches.
Jason and Peggy were staying at Villa Caletas Hotel, which I’m completely obsessed with due to their beautiful gardens and walkways. So when they told me they wanted a First Look Session you can imagine my excitement!!! If you know me you know I love FIRST LOOK SESSIONS. What are these? First Look sessions are when we have the groom and bride see each other before the ceremony. This usually takes place once they’re ready and just before the ceremony time. Their intimate First Look Session was everything we could ask for. Jason couldn’t hold his smiles, he hugged and kissed her, twirled her and hugged and kissed her again… so heartfelt.
The ceremony was full of joy and tears, happy tears from us all; their best friends officiated it, and they personalized their vows to each other, which gets us every time!!!! You can listen to parts of them in their wedding video below!
After the ceremony, we went off to their sunset session , the light that day was just perfect, warm golden light with a jaw-dropping sunset to end it off!
The highlight of the reception was a live painting on a surf board by Carlos Hiller. This was a gift from their in-laws. Carlos Hiller painted a classic Costa Rican landscape: Witch’s Rock surf point, a place where they hold numerous fond memories together!
Thank you Jason and Peggy for trusting me with your day, can’t wait to see you all again!!!!!
