A Tropical Pura Vida Destination Wedding | Alex & Mary | Jaco, Costa Rica

Social media has become a force for both good and evil, but one of the best things it offers is connection. Without Instagram, I may have never met these amazing girls in Joshua Tree all those years ago now to shoot their engagement photos.

Since then, I can safely say Alex & Mary are two people I genuinely consider to be amazing friends – from the first time bouldering the Gunsmoke traverse with Alex to cheering them on from afar as they get ready to bring a kiddo into this world! I can’t even fathom how lucky this little babe will be having these two for parents.

After our e-session in J Tree, A&M chose to bring me out to Jaco, Costa Rica for their wedding at the Hotel DoceLunas as well as their pre-celebration nature tour around Manuel Antonio, and their beach party at Playa Hermosa. My favorite memories from the trip are bonding with Mary’s aunt & uncle, almost being tackled by several capuchin monkeys trying to steal my backpack, the van rides back to Jaco, Alex & Mary’s vows, and the badass dance party at the end of their wedding night.

Scroll to see all the magic of this incredible tropical destination wedding and all the Pura Vida. <3
