RIU Palace Costa Rica Destination Wedding Photography… Carly and Mike began planning their destination wedding over a year in advance, with the help of their travel agent at InStyle Vacations and RIU Palace Costa Rica wedding coordinator. Being the fun-loving couple that they are, they wanted to provide a memorable and social experience for their closest family and friends; a week long celebration in a gorgeous and unique setting. Carly became interested in Costa Rica as a potential wedding location after seeing her friend’s wedding photographs taken there.

DIY Vintage Globetrotter Inspired Hamilton Oakville Wedding Photography… We love this couple and are incredibly excited to show off their awesome wedding! In her own words, Daniela explains how their journey together began:
“Mutual friends encouraged us to date. We were not interested… at first. We met once again through these friends, and I was suddenly head over heels for John. John had just started dating someone, though. I waited… We saw each other here and there with friends. Time passed and out of nowhere, when I purchased my tickets to spend a year in Australia, I decided to tell John (he mentioned at some point in our passing he wanted to go there for teacher’s college). At that point, we spoke often. I believed he was still with someone but he was single. The day he graduated teacher’s college I found out he was single, was thrilled, and within a week asked him on a date.”
Within their first year of dating, Daniela and John moved to London, England and from there, travelled the world, seeing nearly 25 countries in two years! So, needless to say, they share a passion for exploring the planet. This mutual wanderlust is the inspiration behind Daniela and John’s reception theme, captured in the details from their choice of a waterfront venue surrounded by sailboats, to their table place settings and centerpieces, using cities in which they have traveled to in lieu of table numbers. The nautical element was also representative of John’s love for fishing – the guys all wore fish hook tie clips! Their appreciation for all things vintage came through in the mod style of their wedding party, with mint bridesmaid dresses, and Daniela’s wedding dress made by her mom and aunt! All of their décor was DIY, from the hand knit ring pillow, ceremony floral arrangements, reception decorations, to their guest-signing dictionary! We adored their whimsical wedding cake, simple and sweet, and incorporating their fun colour scheme.
