Caroline and Ben (Benoline for short) are both talented photographers based in Austin, TX. Although they have an extensive network of wedding vendors in the Austin area, Benoline were looking for a fun and exotic adventure for their family and close friends (also mostly photographers) in a faraway land. They decided to host their nuptials at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. For those not familiar with Arenal, it is one of the top ten most active volcanos on the planet. Although in recent years it has gone rather dormant, the volcano can regularly be seen spouting smoke and ash. As a result of the geothermal activity, the area is blessed with some of the most amazing hot springs in the world.
One of Benoline’s goals for their wedding was to show their group a good time throughout the wedding week. Well, they definitely delivered on their promise. Their group activities included a high tension zip-lining adventure, a trip to nearby hot springs, hiking in Rio Celeste, horseback riding and general shenanigans throughout the La Fortuna area. Being photographers themselves, documenting this adventure was a high priority for the two of them. They hired award-winning photographers Davina + Daniel to capture moments throughout the entire trip. Here are a few breathtaking shots of their hot spring adventure.
