There's no place like home

 

When Andrea contacted me, Allen was going away for work for quite some time. She wanted to do something special for their anniversary. So before he left, they decided to share some amazing moments. At the time I took these, I wasn't yet married, but looking back after some reflection, it reminded me of the ongoing transformation love puts people through...

It's making the choice to do what you don't necessarily want to do. Understanding that you may need to sacrifice the person you were for the person you will become. Taking the time and commitment to work towards a better "us", constantly, even when one of you or both, are at your worse. And sometimes we all need to be reminded, through our own love and the love we see in others, marriage isn't some destination that you finally arrive at...


Later that day it began to rain, and that's where the magic really started to happen...

Love in Costa Rica

 

...MY FIRST DESTINATION WEDDING, check!

And honestly, it was everything I expected and so much more!

Alicia and Kevin are real life examples of the "Where have you been all my life?!" couple. Because I found out that the two were right next to each other. No, seriously, right next to each other. Of all the places in the world, they've lived their whole life in the same Long Island town, with the same group of friends, and the rest...clearly, you see where this is going. Yep, you guessed it, going straight to Costa Rica on a non-stop flight...

When Alicia contacted me with the details of her wedding in Costa Rica, I think we both leaped up in the air from the excitement...okay, maybe it was just me. I slept about two hours before going to the airport for the early AM flight. Stepping off the plane, I was invaded with this insane wave of heat that, I'm pretty sure, burnt off at least three of my eyelashes. Heat jokes aside, the Flamingo Beach Resort, in Guanacaste, sits right alongside an incredible beach that made these two love fish feel right at home. I don't think I know of another couple that loves the ocean more than these two! Sun, sand, water, and awesome piña coladas combined with an all-inclusive menu, made this the perfect place for Alicia and Kevin to tie the knot. And their family, well...I think I was part of it by the end of the trip. 

It was a gorgeous setting, and one of the most scenic shores I've ever seen. Watching the sunset from this beach is nothing short of amazing, and if you're with your significant other, it may even be magical. I can only hope you see what I mean as you view the connection between these two....Pura Vida!
