DESTINATION WEDDING VIDEO SHORT FILM // COSTA RICA WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER
Is there a better way to kick off the 2015 season than with an incredible wedding in the heart of Costa Rica? Surrounded by rows of coffee plants, waterfalls, hot springs, and volcanoes, Melania + Louis’s wedding was truly breathtaking. Melania + Louis decided to have their wedding ceremony in the country’s oldest Catholic church still in use. The church, Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi, was built in 1743. Later, their festive wedding reception was held at La Casona del Cafetal with an evening backdrop formed by rolling mountains and the pristine Lake Cachí.
Melania + Louis have a deep love for one another and a special relationship and it all started in Kansas when Louis returned from Marine Corps training and Melania was starting her masters at Kansas State University. They met while dancing at Longhorns, a country western bar in Manhattan, Kansas. The next day they bumped into each other at a picnic sponsored by their church. That’s where their story began and brings us to the wedding short film playing above (you might also notice a hint of country western dancing too).
