Remote Costa Rica Wedding
Reagan and Nathan are both Americans living in beautiful Nosara, a village in Costa Rica. Nosara is a beachside paradise with beautiful surf spots and less tourism than the neighboring areas. It is known as a yoga center, and home to the SIBU Sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates animals like coatimundi and the white-faced monkeys. Just north, the beach at Ostional Wildlife Refuge is a nesting site for olive ridley turtles. Just an overall beautiful place.
From Nosara, Reagan, Nathan and their wedding guests traveled to Rincón de La Vieja. A remote park about 3 hours from Nosara. They had their ceremony by the Las Chorreras waterfall. This remote location was secluded from the rest of the world and gave the feeling of time stopping in its tracks. I don't know about you, but I'd love to stop time and sit by a waterfall in Costa Rica.

Reagan and Nathan's love for nature is why they wanted a remote and thoughtfully designed wedding. They selected the perfect venue, a beautiful waterfall within the famous national park of Rincón de La Vieja. The couple really embraced the outdoors, their ceremony overlooked the wonderful waterfalls of the park and their reception site was tucked away in the nearby forest.
Their dream location was so remote that there wasn't any road to access, only a horse path. So, Mil Besos hired a backhoe to create a vehicle accessible path for the school bus to come and bring the guests in. Talk about full service!
Without an electric source, a generator was brought in to allow for music and twinkling lights. Paper straws and bamboo plates eliminated any use of plastics - making this a no-waste wedding. The furniture was made with local wood by the skilled craftsmen at the Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin. The florist kept the centerpieces very natural with locally grown fruit, mostly foraged and local flowers and LED candles to eliminate waste.
This paradise has a focus on nature and a laid back atmosphere. This couple both shared a love and passion for the environment and it showed throughout their wedding. Decor is an important part of the wedding for most couples, but for Reagan and Nathan, it was not just the look of the decor but also the purpose behind it that was important. This sustainable mindset was a huge reason we loved this couple right from the start.
This couple really illustrated how you can design a pretty wedding without compromising your daily mission in preserving the environment. We were totally charmed by Reagan and Nathan and loved the challenge of thinking outside the box for this event. We hope this continues to inspire other brides for their big day!
