Love Story:
Nathan and Marissa were having dinner with both of their parents when Nathan suggested they walk on the beach to enjoy the sunset. As the six of them were walking, Nathan proposed to everyone’s delight. Even better, Marissa’s brother was hiding nearby and captured the moment on camera!

Love Note:
Marissa and Nathan are huge baseball fans and centered their honeymoon on visiting classic baseball stadiums that they had never been to before, such as Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium.

Love Story:
Miranda always wanted to go boating on the Central Park Lake; it was on her bucket list, and Alexander was well aware. For years though, he made excuses to not go or made different arrangements. Finally one day, they went on the boat, to Miranda’s happiness. When they got to the middle of the lake, he got on one knee and proposed, making it the most perfect, intimate proposal that Miranda could ever dream of!

Love Note:
Miranda grew up on the West coast and Alexander grew up on the East Coast. They met when their paths crossed in college!

Love Story:
Nikki and Ari met in England, and Ari decided to honor that in his proposal. He proposed on the rooftop of the London hotel in LA on their anniversary, telling Nikki that since he couldn’t propose in England, rain and the London Hotel was the next best thing! A friend was there to catch the moment on camera!

Love Note:
Many special touches went into the wedding – a kitten adoption during cocktail hour, ukulele vows during the ceremony, and a s’mores station at the reception!

 Beauty & the Balance
at Tabacón Grand Spa Resort, Costa Rica

Balance. It’s what everyone desires. The modern couple looking for a once-in-a-lifetime destination wedding or honeymoon getaway can find that perfect blend of adventure and relaxation at Tabacón Resort. Located in the heart of Costa Rica at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Tabacón offers ample opportunities for adventure including rainforest zip-lining, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, nighttime rainforest hikes and waterfall excursions. Their 5-Star accommodations paired with natural thermal springs, exquisite dining and luxurious spa services then allow a couple to unwind in style from a day of thrilling activities. Set within the confines of the rainforest Tabacón Resort is in close proximity to adventure for all levels of thrill seekers.

Nature lovers cannot miss taking part in activities that showcase the natural wonder of this gorgeous country. A daytime horseback ride meandering through the foothills surrounding the volcano is a must-do. The views of the volcano and the lush scenery are utterly breathtaking. However, a night hike may provide even better opportunities to spot nocturnal mammals that are often elusive during the day. Armed with a flashlight and ample determination, night time is the right time to spot one of Costa Rica’s symbolic creatures such as a red-eyed tree frog or a sloth. A short ride outside of the resort gets you to La Fortuna where a majestic waterfall plummets to a clear pool of water that is ideal for swimming after a 500-step hike down a scenic path to reach it.

Looking to take nature up a notch? Jacamar Naturalist Tours take guests on an adventure of a lifetime. Venture out to the top of the canopy for an exhilarating zip-line ride through the rainforest. Then, swing through the rainforest like Tarzan swing to get the full jungle experience. Get closer to nature by hitting the rapids on a whitewater raft tour down the Rio Toro and possibly witness tropical birds and exotic animals winding through the canyons.

Days filled with adventure build up an appetite. Explore a local soda in La Fortuna for comidas típicas (authentic Costa Rican cuisine) or venture back to the gorgeous confines of Tabacón for a casual meal at their restaurant, Ave del Paraíso, for Tabacón’s delicious take on Costa Rica’s famous dish, casado típico criollo, which is the customary meal a wife would make for her husband. A more relaxing option would include donning swimwear and slipping up to the Arenal Pool Bar where small bites such as ceviche and guacamole pair well a libation made from Costa Rica’s signature sugar cane alcohol, guaro. Ah, pura vida!

Relaxation is what brings Tabacón Resort its renown. Arenal Volcano’s natural thermal springs flow through the resort providing guests with a luxurious locale to warm weary muscles that have been worked from a day of energetic fun. Meander through the spring’s pathways to a literal Shangri-la. The Shangri-la Gardens are an exclusive experience for only Tabacón’s adult guests. Its privacy, replete with cascading falls and the steamy springs, sets the stage for romantic interludes. The thermal springs are within close proximity to the resort’s luxurious spa accommodations where Costa Rica’s natural environment is incorporated into each spa treatment. From the local products infused into the massage oils to the outdoor bungalows, couples can escape to even deeper tranquility. ‘The Idyllic’ is the quintessential couples massage bringing the soothing sounds of the rainforest into the ultimate bonding experience. Be sure to request to take a plunge in a relaxing milk bath following the massage. While basking in the outdoor tub, you may even spot an exotic monkey lurking above you in the natural canopy.

Top off your dreamy experience with a Private Gala Dinner where your personal chef freshly prepares a gourmet feast in an open air rainforest bungalow lit by shimmering candles. Each course is paired with sumptuous wines and champagnes that bring out the flavors of each divine dish. A romantic meal is the ideal way to create a lifetime of memories from your luxurious experience at Tabacón.

Whether you’re seeking the thrill of outdoor adventure or a relaxing retreat Tabacón provides the perfect balance.
