del sol photography honeymoon in Costa Rica

Recommended Posts

del Sol has a pretty big following from the brides and grooms on BDWF and I figured I'd put a post in here updating everybody with our status of recent so you can know when to expect back from us..


Currently, we are taking our honeymoon in Costa Rica for 18 days. August 13- Sept 2 or 3....


We got married Dec 6, 2007 and due to the fact that we work our tails off (82 weddings and 35 ttd's shot so far this year) we decided to postpone our honeymoon 6 months.


Nonetheless, we are traveling in the mountains of Costa Rica and we will go days and days without checking our email. In some places, they claim to have internet but its so slow that it takes me back to dialup days of having 14400 modem and waiting 10 minutes to download one photo.


As lame as it is, we are actually working on our honeymoon but at a very very slow pace, answering inquiries as we can.


We have 4 or 5 days left on this trip and so far, we have had 38 individual wedding inquiries since we left for the honeymoon.... Because we individually answer each inquiry (instead of having a bulk response or a staff robot answer each request) we take time to cater to each client. Therefore, we beg for patience with all of you and thank you so much for trusting our vision enough to inquiry with our studio!


Sol is documenting our travels on her blog, www.soltamargo.com/blog. Do check it out, our adventures have been nothing short of national geographic style nature and wildlife touring!


I am shooting a documentary video of our entire experience and plan on updating this forum with our entire experience in Costa Rica.... we will give hotel info, tour info, and of course, excellent documentary visuals of our trip, aiding in your planning of the most killer honeymoon planning... this place rocks!



We will be back in full operation around Sept 5. Thanks for your patience :)

I hope you're having a wonderful time. I've been checking out Sol's blog since you guys have been away. Costa Rica looks fabulous and it looks like you guys are having so much fun! I can't wait until January when Sol shoots my wedding. I can't wait to hear more about your trip since CR is the next place FI and I want to travel to. Keep having a great time.

Keep enjoying your honeymoon! Costa Rica has a special place in my heart and I cannot wait to see/watch all the amazing wildlife you and Sol saw.

Pura Vida!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
