An Adventurous Elopement in Costa Rica

A story of love, patience, and hope. Sarah & Rick had planned for their symbolic adventurous elopement in Costa Rica for April of 2020. Like many other couples, their plans changed. When it was clear that travel to Costa Rica would not be possible, their plans were postponed until August of 2020. August was quickly approaching, and their home state of Kentucky was not on the list of states that could visit Costa Rica when traveling resumed. Once again, they had to postpone their plans and were hopeful that their wedding would take place in April of 2021.

Sarah had found her wedding dress in 2019. It fit her perfectly, and she knew she had found the one. Sarah remarked after their elopement that she got to wear her wedding dress more than many other brides. She surprised Rick with a professional photo session at home, in 2019. They had a reception with their family and friends in April of 2021 prior to leaving for Costa Rica, and of course, she wore her beautiful dress again for their adventurous elopement in Costa Rica.
