This teeny secret elopement took place at Playa Jobo, near the Peñas Blancas border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. My favorite part was when the bride boldly swam in her wedding dress at the very end.

Elopement in Tamarindo - Capitan Suizo

The stars really aligned for this small Tamarindo elopement in front of the Capitan Suizo hotel. The weather was perfect (always a risk during rainy season), and in fact although it was a bit cloudy the clouds conspired to give us an amazing sunset for elopement photos. Enjoy!

Secret Secluded Elopement Spot for Semana Santa

Tamarindo is a phenomenal place for a destination elopement in Costa Rica. However during Semana Santa, or Easter Week, it's also incredibly busy. To keep the photo-bombing to a minimum, we went to my super secret secluded spot on the beach and avoided the crowds.
