Real Wedding – Roquell & Stephen – La Paz Waterfall Gardens

Now here’s a sweet, romantic little wedding at the beautiful La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Just outside of San Jose, this is a mystical, magical spot with a lush cloudforest and stunning waterfalls. Roquell and Stephen were flying into Costa Rica for a friend’s wedding so they decided to elope while they were here. How romantic!

Weddings Costa Rica senior planner Randy Gritz was the coordinator for this intimate morning wedding, with Richard May behind the lens to capture the magic.

The rooms at the Peace Lodge hotel on the grounds are breathtaking to say the least. No detail has been overlooked and it’s one of the most uber-romantic spots in the country (jacuzzi on the balcony, waterfall shower, fireplace in the room). Getting ready for their ceremony together in their gorgeous room helped calm any pre-wedding nerves.


Lawyer and officiant extraordinaire, Ana Castro Calzada, performed a very touching and personal ceremony.

Against the backdrop of the magnificent waterfall, Father Carlos, a Catholic priest, gave a blessing upon the marriage.

That, my friends, is the look of love. Gorgeous couple in a gorgeous setting.


A private moment, leaving the waterfall platform, the majestic natural cathedral welcoming the new couple.

Much joy and happiness always to Roquell and Stephen! Many thanks for allowing Weddings Costa Rica to be part of your intimate wedding ceremony!

    Wow, this looks like my dream wedding. Does this place do ceremony only and what would the closest all-inclusive resort be to have the reception at?
