Rancho Santana, Nicaragua Beach Wedding Photography with Christina and Bryan

Rancho-Santana-Nicaragua-Wedding-Photographer-Christina-Bryan-2014_0124

Christina and Bryan’s Rancho Santana, Nicaragua wedding last month was one I’ll never forget.

Christina and I studied abroad in San Sebastian, Spain about ten years ago. Though our vagabond days are over and we live on opposite sides of a pretty big mountain range, we’ve stayed in touch since college.

When Christina and Bryan, who now live in the Bay Area, asked me to come along to photograph their wedding in Nicaragua, I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve wanted to travel there for several years and this was a perfect chance to explore the country and photograph an awesome wedding with a bunch of rad people.

Brytina, as they will heretofore be known, are surfers and spend a lot of time down there searching out surf spots. They found an incredible spot in Rancho Santana and couldn’t have picked a cooler venue for the wedding.

The day started with the ladies’ preparation at a house Christina’s parents rented out overlooking the ocean, with a sweet poolside-palapa.

Christina has a lot of friends involved in the wedding business in one way or another, and also brought along Reno hairstylist Elyssa Corson and her husband Silken Corson, an awesome wedding videographer also based in Reno.

After hanging with Christina and her bridesmaids, we headed down to the beach-side condos where Bryan and his groomsmen prepared before heading to the wedding site.

The ceremony went down on a promontory looking out to the coast, the surrounding tropical forest, and an amazing clubhouse, restaurant and swimming pool.

After the ceremony, we grabbed a group shot of the entire wedding entourage, and then went down to the beach for sunset portraits with the bridal party, and then with just Brytina.

We timed out the sunset perfectly before returning to the clubhouse for an incredible reception, highlighted by a legit fireworks display, a raging party in an intimate courtyard that was the perfect size for the group, and a legendary dude named Bruce.

That’s it for Brytina. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was an honor to be a part of.

We’ve been as busy as ever for this time of year, so there’s a lot more coming to the blog. We’ve had a few recent Mammoth weddings and engagement photography sessions, so check back for that. Also check out Minaret Photography on Facebook for weekly posts of our latest work. Thanks!
