Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
Congratulations to Scott Braman and Alison Mathews, who are getting married May 7 at Hotel Costa Verde in Manuel Antonio.
The ceremony will be officiated by longtime friend of the family Annie Stebbins, of Fairfield, Connecticut.
Scott is the son of Chip Braman, owner of the Hotel Mono Azul, and Suzanne Grimes Braman, a Montessori teacher from California. Alison is the daughter of Patrick Mathews, owner of a small media and entertainment consultancy, and Betsy Mathews, a registered nurse from Maineville, Ohio.
Scott is a film director and editor and has produced a number of short and feature-length documentary films. He was a Fulbright scholar in Ecuador and attended Dartmouth College. Alison graduated from the University of Virginia and works as a senior manager in charge of graphics and branding for Disney’s ABC Family television network. She is also an avid painter and visual artist.
The happy couple lives just off the beach in Venice, California, where they met through a high school friend.
The couple’s closest friends and family will be traveling to Manuel Antonio for the big event. In attendance will be best man Greg Neichin, a vice president of Cleantech Group, maid of honor and sister of the bride Kelley Ballish of Sycamore Township, Ohio, and sister of the groom Jennifer Braman Pleasants, an art professor at Berkeley City College.
A big thank-you to the couple for making a donation to the local nonprofit Kids Saving The Rainforest as part of the wedding festivities.
