I wanted lush rainforest and quiet deserted beaches, so I'm getting married way down south at Rancho Pacifico near Uvita. Well actually, I'm probably getting married right on a beach, but we're staying at Rancho Pacifico and they're organizing everything.
So I guess the main question is, what are your priorities? How long do you want to stay? How many guests do you estimate will come? Do you want the hotel to yourself, or do you want a big busy resort? Do you like rustic...luxury, or a combo? What is your budget? What do you want to see and do?
No matter what you want, Costa Rica has a hotel that will suit your needs perfectly, but there are so many great places that's it's impossible to just pick one at random without knowing what you're after exactly. On the bright side, you can't really go wrong in CR

Also has anyone heard of "Weddings Costa Rica" wedding coordinator? If so, what have you heard about them? I feel so overwhelmed at this point!
WCR, is a good company, well established with a large experienced staff.
Whatever your choice, make sure the company doesn't only "paint it with flowers" make sure they tell you the good, the bad and the ugly of a wedding in CR. Lots of luck!

We used El Velo Photography (they service all of Costa Rica) and I highly recommend them. Here are some of our pictures: lahryn & brent
Scroll past all the names (or click on some if you want to see other weddings!). Juan Carlos was our photographer and he was fantastic.
We had William Munoz as an officiant- through Marcelo Galli.
Here is a list of villas in Manuel antonio: Manuel Antonio Area Vacation Rentals - VRBO® is Vacation Rentals by Owner Manuel Antonio Area - Manuel Antonio Area Hotels, Manuel Antonio Area Lodging, Manuel Antonio Area Travel and Tourism
We rented these two (the patio on the blue house was where we had the reception:) : Costa Rica Vacation Hotel Quepos Manuel Antonio - Complete Villa
Manuel Antonio Rental - House
We walked by these houses daily and they are beautiful:
Costa Rica Villa - Villa
Manuel Antonio Costa Rica - Villa with four full suites
I'm sure there are more. I would also recommend the hotel byblos. We went there for breakfast one day and dinner another. The staff was very friendly and food was excellent. There isn't an ocean view but a wonderful rainforest one instead.
It is definately a tourist area, so be prepared for that.. but the clubs were fun, resturants were great, ocean was perfect, no complaints at all. I highly, highly, recommend a visit to Manuel Antonio, we intend on a return trip for our first anniversary:) GOod luck! (and congratulations!

You can find a property on the beach or on the hills, overlooking the ocean. It is a bit touristy than some other locations though. But again, there are no private beaches in Costa Rica and tourists walk everywhere
