Dreamy, coastal, romantic.
This Vero Beach vintage-boho inspired wedding session combines all things I love! It was such an amazing experience to bring this amazing team together and host this shoot myself – I couldn’t be more pleased with the amazing images we were able to produce! Samantha and Anthony are our lovely bride & groom couple, and they are actually sweethearts in real life!
The Venue: Costa d’Este Resort & Spa
I love, love LOVE shooting weddings at Costa d’Este. I can’t tell you enough! Probably half my weddings per year are located there, of all sizes and cultures. As far as being an all-inclusive resort, you really can’t do any better! The ceremony is held right on the beach which makes it the best for those late-afternoon sunset weddings, and then the perfect patio area for hosting the cocktail hour. The resort itself is just drop-dead gorgeous, and the staff is beyond amazing. I can’t tell you as a wedding vendor how much I appreciate the venue staff being so accommodating of the other vendors during a wedding. They always make sure I have water, get a meal, and anything else I could ask for.
We chose Costa d’Este as our resort for this inspirational wedding shoot because of the diversity of the location. Their hotel suites are perfect for coastal bridal portraits and the beachy architecture of the hotel gives a ton to work with for bridal portraits. The inspiration behind this wedding was to capture a romantic, coastal feel and include as many local vendors as possible. Although we were nervous that the weather would turn for us, we ended up having a gorgeous day and absolutely PERFECT beach waves – what better backdrop could you even ask for, right?
