Nicaragua Rancho Santana Wedding Part 1 {Destination Wedding Photographer}

Wait until you see the views from this amazing wedding in Popoyo, Nicaragua!  Heather and Rob, from Jupiter, Florida wanted to get away somewhere warm and tropical for their wedding and that is just what they did.  With an intimate sized guest list of 50 close friends and family they celebrated their love with a long weekend on the beach!  Starting out with the Fourth of July and rehearsal dinner on the water accompanied by fireworks.  Then onto their wedding day at a private estate overlooking the beach with a party following at the Rancho Santana Club House and finally a goodbye brunch and some pool/surf time.  Ranch Santana is a privately owned property boasting 2,700 acres of green hills sitting on a two-mile stretch of beaches and coves.  It houses about 30 private estates and a Villa Hotel and Casitas.  All of the guests stayed in private homes with stunning views.  Heather and Rob were so sweet to give me a room in their large 5 bedroom house!  Rancho Santana’s staff, chefs and wedding coordinators were nothing less than AMAZING! They provided gorgeous flowers and decor, transportation to and from the ceremony and reception and they put out the most amazing local grown meals and drinks the whole weekend. Besides flying me in Heather and Rob relied on Rancho Santana to make their day perfect and that is just what they did!  I love to travel, as many of my readers know I am always taking a few large trips a year (so sorry I still have yet to blog Peru, Australia and Thailand… COMING SOON!)  Mixing destination into my business combines my two loves of wedding photography and travel!! This summer I will be off to Costa Rica for a wedding of one of Heather’s bridesmaids!  As I always share, I am so grateful for my job and the sweet amazing clients I have that usually become dear friends of mine! Thank you Heather and Rob for such an amazing week and congrats again Mr. & Mrs. Gramer!!! This is part 1, part 2 of the blog post coming shortly! SO check back in!!
