      thanks i hope i hear back from her too ... i'm trying to convince myself that his pictures are plenty good enough and there's no reason to spend more hiring someone else.

      i just think it's a little strange that with all the DC brides on this forum, i haven't seen ANYONE use his services, ya know? especially since he's the INCLUDED photographer!

      if you're out there, and you used juan navarro, speak up! good or bad, we need to know!

        Has anyone here had their reception in the ballroom? All the pictures I have seen of the ballroom make me believe that it it pretty dark in there. I also can not tell how big of a space it is. Also, would you spend your money on the ballroom decorations?

            You girls have to keep me updated with this...Booking a Photographer is my next step...And between no one ever getting abck to me and no one ever having Juan Navarro do their Photos, I am at a stand still! :-(
            Thanks for all your hard work! I know you ladies are just as, If not more frustrated as I.

              Someone posted a picture before of it...If you search for it, I'm sure it'll show up. It looked like a big space..It was really nice..But it looked like your average Wedding Hall you can use in your Home town.
              However if that's what your looking for, in my opinion it looked really nice! :-)
              I think you'd definitely want to get the chair covers for SURE if you go that route.

                Here is the review from Dawn's reception that was moved to the ballroom http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t28721 it sounded like she liked it.

                  i would imagine that there's plenty of regular overhead lighting in there and that the pictures you've seen were mood lighting for dancing ... i don't know about you but i need the lights dimmed and a couple shots of liquid courage before i get out there! LMAO

                  i agree with phillybride that it's kinda like a hall you could have had at a home wedding, however, it's also the only reception option that is air-conditioned, so that's definitely something to consider! and of course it's nice to know the option is there so inclement weather can't totally destroy your wedding. dmarie made the best of it and her wedding was wonderful!

                    Im having my reception in the ballroom, partially bc we have about 85-90 people coming, and also we dont want to be limited on how late we can party. when we were there for our site visit in june, we saw a reception in the ballroom. its def not dark in there. they do have overhead lighting, and there are optional additions, like lights under each table ($25/table) and overhead colored lights (i think it was like $250, dont remember exactly)... as far as how big, they have like 4 rooms with dividers, and depending on how many poeple you have, they give u the appropriate number of rooms... as far as decorations, thats a personal choice.. you can make it as simple or as fancy as you want, but i would minimally get the chair covers and bows (the bows can be reused from the ceremony, so u dont get charged twice...).. if u have any other questions, let me know :-)
                    "Woohoo!! Time to get married!

                      I think that is great! I'm sure that your photos will be fabulous and some one can finally share a review and perhaps so many gals can quit spending so much extra money for a diff photog. You could change the world
