Costa Rica Highlands Wedding | Hacienda Sitio de Mata wedding photographer
Wendy & Sebastian are a special couple. After a Facetime consultation a few months back, I met them in person in San Jose in one of the cafeterias. It was the perfect match. From the first moment, I knew that it was going to be awesome! It’s simply the best thing about our job that we get to meet such amazing humans and experience one of the happiest days of their lives. They flew all the way from Seattle to celebrate their love in Costa Rica. The couple, their friends, and families from all over the world gathered in an amazing venue called Hacienda Sitio de Mata. It’s located right outside of the Turrialba Valley, which is an hour away from the country’s capital. I think the beauty of the Costa Rican Highlands is somewhat underrated. Most couples tend to go for a destination beach wedding. However, Costa Rica is so diverse and has so much to offer! The venue opens up to the amazing view of the valley that is overlooking lush mountainsides and a beautiful lake. The tiny chapel sits on top of a hill. The whole place is surrounded by Costa Rica’s traditional crops: sugar cane, coffee, and macadamia. I was in awe! The ceremony was so lovely, light, warm, and fun. You can just see for yourself!
