Costa Rica Wedding From Jose Villa Photography Part I

First off we have to give a special shout out to the Groom, Akil Bennet, who happens to be a Wedding Chicks photographer in Houston, TX.

Akil wanted nothing but the best for his tropical island getaway. So, of course, he enlisted fine art wedding photographer Jose Villa to capture his Costa Rica wedding after attending one of Jose’s workshops. Besides choosing the wedding photographer Alex, the bride, planned 100% of the wedding with assistance from Tropical Occasions. She wanted Akil to be surprised with this breath taking island event.

If you are planning a Costa Rica wedding be sure to take note of the weather. There is no real summer or winter in Costa Rica and the rainy season here lasts from May to November, with the months of December through April having little to no rain and September and October being the heaviest rain period. As far as heat goes the coolest months of the year are November, December and January. The months March through May are the hottest months of the year.

Be sure to stay tuned later today we will be showcasing more of this seriously beautiful couple.

Stay tuned there will be so much more to enjoy!

Jose Villa is a preferred member and proud sponsor of The Weddings Chicks.

    Beautiful work, as always from Jose Villa, and from the lovely ladies of Tropical Occasions. Wish I could have seen it in person.

    The photos are beautiful, but Costa Rica is not an island. It’s attached to Central America. Just thought you would like to know that. :) Love the photos regardless!

    So beautiful, but no surprise! Jose astounds again- can’t wait to see him blow one of our April 2011 weddings out of the water. Thanks for featuring, Wedding Chicks!
