Lucía and Luis Diego having a great time together during their portrait session with the amazing golf course landscape behind.

Lucía and Luis Diego met each other 15 years ago. Their love story grew around their passion for cycling. Both of them are very close to their families, so they wanted to have a very intimate celebration with the closest members of their families and best friends for their wedding.

They chose the Hotel Costa Rica Marriott Hacienda Belén as their wedding ceremony venue because of the convenience of having a small church inside the venue and having the opportunity to get ready closer to each other, as well as a stunning view during the afternoon to the golf course's open views. 

Their wedding was a heartfelt and emotional celebration. From tears and, indeed, organic laughs, they really enjoyed every moment of it. For Lucía being the only daughter and Luis not having all his key family members with him were high emotional drivers during their wedding.
