At some point, every bride probably wonders about the possibility of a Destination Wedding. The logistics may seem overwhelming, but they don’t have to be – not when you find the right place to host your wedding celebration. We would like to recommend stunning Villa Punto de Vista, located in beautiful Costa Rica! This 2016 Conde Nast Awarded estate offers a 270-degree panorama of Manuel Antonio Bay and a beautiful rain forest teeming with (Monkeys, Sloths, Parrots & Toucans) on the villa’s 2.5-acre reserve.
Punto de Vista is a private, fully staffed, luxury wedding villa. It is rented to only one party at a time and is truly unique in that it’s more like renting a private boutique hotel than a rental property. As you scroll through the fabulousness that the Villa offers, keep this in mind – if you mention Once Wed when you book, you will get your choice of a Private Chef Welcome Dinner or $2000 off your stay!
The complex is comprised of both the main villa and an entry cottage on a the rain-forest estate. It features 10 boutique-style bedrooms, all with their own uniquely tiled entrances in Italian Bisazza tile and private baths with organic bath products and rain showers. Need more rooms? No problem. The villa works with smaller local villas and hotels to accommodate everyone and just minutes away. Some even within walking distance!

Featured Unique Elopement in Spain
Elopements have this unique ability to allow a couple to shake off the reigns of tradition and do whatever suits them best. In this event, captured by Meghan Kay Sadler, we love how the couple combined their elopement with their honeymoon, travelling through Spain without any particular plans, and enjoying it all the way.
