Not wanting to inconvenience family with extensive travel for a stateside wedding, Rebecca and Joshua decided to jet set to the lush rainforests of Costa Rica for an exotic elopement at a wildlife refuge.
“Both of us have important family members who were physically unable to travel the distance either way,” says Rebecca.
With a cascading waterfall as their ceremony backdrop, the only guests who crashed the celebration were fluttering butterflies, majestic jungle cats, fleeting hummingbirds, and white nose coati.
“It was just beautiful and I’m really glad to have beautiful pictures by Comfort Studios to enjoy and reflect on that special day.”
