honeymoon elopement in
costA Rica

Ari + Matt

What do you do when the ‘Rona puts the kibosh on your wedding in downtown Los Angeles??? You turn your honeymoon into an elopement moon and elope to Tamarindo Costa Rica to exchange your vows with the dreamiest beach views! Ari and Matt met a little over two years ago via the online dating app Hinge, and when they realized they were going to have to postpone their wedding, Ari grabbed her wedding dress, Matt packed his beautiful brown tweed suit, and they hopped on a plane for their honeymoon elopement in Costa Rica aka Pura Vidadise.

The two of them couldn’t be more natural and cute together. Both Matt and Ari teared up while exchanging their vows under a beautiful tree with the dreamiest beach front ocean view, and then were all smiles and lauging with each other afteawards. Congrats you two!

And thank you Brittany at Two Adventurous Souls for connecting Ari with me! If y’all are traveling in Maine, be sure to look Brittany up!

Tamarindo has a special way of bringing people together. Like Laura + Richie, who met each other in this tropical beach town a couple of years ago. I had the pleasure of knowing the two of them before they met each other, and the first time I saw them together, I could feel that they had something special. Fast forward to 2020, with Costa Rica’s borders closed and the whole world on lockdown because of the ‘Rona, COVID brought Laura + Richie even closer together.

The majority of family vacations in Costa Rica typically are for one week. But, there is so much to do and see in Pura Vidadise that the time goes by so fast. My first week long trip to Costa Rica, I definitely felt like I didn’t have enough time, so my second trip I booked for 10 days. And then my third trip…well I ended up packing up my NYC apartment and hopped a flight to Costa Rica for however long I wanted to!!!
