Real Wedding – Amiee and Adam in Los Altos, Manuel Antonio

Amiee and Adam are the epitome of a sunny couple. Their joy radiates off of them like the sun, shining a bright light of love over everyone and everything in their sphere. Even a rainy afternoon couldn’t dampen the spirit of their wedding celebration at Los Altos in Manuel Antonio!

Originally, the ceremony was to be on the deck overlooking the ocean and rainforest but Mother Nature decided to bless the festivities with some rain so we moved things under the tent. Cylinders filled with limes and branches of yellow orchids with orange rose petals on the ground brought a great punch of colour against the grey skies.

Who says seating has to be relegated to little cards? We used an antique mirror instead!

I personally think glitter is a panacea that makes everything better.
