Elopement at the Grand Papagayo Occidental Resort

Angie and Kevin had been dating long distance from the Texas to Canada.  They tied the knot at the Grand Papagayo Resort. Their ceremony overlooked the large arc-shaped Culebra Bay.  The world-class beaches in Northern Guanacaste are spectacular.  The resort is adults only and all-inclusive.  Close to the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano and right on the ocean makes this a perfect location for a wedding. The day was romantic and full of charm.
