    Okay, I have a question about the sound equipment for the ceremony. Does some one have a photo with where the person running the music is at (or a description will do)? Could you hook up any type of media player, i.e. iPod, CD, laptop? I am most curious about the laptop one because I have been trying to find a guitar version of canon in d and the only one I can find that I love is a guy on youtube (YouTube - Pachelbel Canon in D (fingerstyle guitar)). I figured out how to save it into my itunes but it still plays as a video and therefor not on my iPod. Just curious where the music person is at for the ceremony so I can determine if it would be a crappy place for a family member to spend the very first part of the wedding baby sitting.

      Ok if you are looking at the gazebo he is on the far right. Past where the Grooms side sits. I had my IPOD hooked up to their system. I also had one of Ryan's friends "babysit" for the first part. He could still see. I would reccommend having your FI that if the officiant is standing too far away that you guys want to use the microphone. My officiant stood at the bottom of the gazebo and had the microphone and nobody could hear Ryan or I saw our vows.
      I don't know if you could hook up a laptop but I don't know why not if you can hook up an IPOD.

        Yea, the only sucky thing about the ballroom is that it's not very 'destination weddinglike'. We could have done something similar at home. However, with the weather situation we definitely were happy with it. The air conditioning was awesome...especially because my dress was hot! The set up was very nice. I didn't do any decorations (except I had chair bows) and they had centerpieces on the tables with candles and it was really pretty. About the lighting... i didn't really notice it being dark. We hired a DJ and he brought a lot of crazy lights and strobes and stuff so once the music started, it was like a dance club. It wasn't what I expected but it was cool.

        I think that I have a guitar version of this that I 'got' from the internet somewhere. Do I have your email address already? I will look and try to email it to you. It may be too big but I'm pretty sure that I sent a bunch of music to Kat so hopefully it will work.

          I'm getting married in June 2009 and I am using Juan Navarro, the photographer through the resort. I reviewed his website and I was pleased with his work. He responded to my questions and he wrote me an e-mail as follows:


          I am honored you like my job and I will be more than happy to help you.
          I cannot sell or offer any packages different from the ones your wedding
          coordinator has already offered you. For any information regarding the
          packages please do not hesitate to contact Claudia Cantillo, your wedding
          coordinator.
          Indeed, the Dreams Ultimate Wedding package includes 50 printed pictures in
          an album and the same pictures in a CD. For this package I shoot around
          250 pictures, and if you are interested in having all the pictures taken in
          a CD you can do so for an extra fee.
          If I can be of any further assistance, please, do not hesitate to contact
          me.
          Sincerely,
          Juan Navarro


          I hope this helps anyone who is wondering about the photographer at Dreams Cancun. I am just finding it easier to just use all the resources available through the resort. The simpler the better for me.

                  yeah i was surprised to see someone actually got an answer from him because i knew you'd had no luck at all!

                  i think his photos look fine. seems that when we go thru dreams we'll have to pay to get all the photos on disc but if he's taking 250 i don't want him choosing which 50 are the best. i want them all, so i'll definitely be buying the disc no matter what. i work in photoshop all day and would be able to make even not-so-great photos look pretty damn good. besides, what if the only picture of a grandparent doesn't make his cut? i'd be pissed. i think his work looks plenty good enough for me, but they all seem stretched out on his site (disproportionately tall or something).

                    Maybe he just doesn't like my name lmao

                    Too damn right there is no way he is picking the 50 pics i mean would I want one for FMIL in there for!!! Saying that i'd pay him extra to fuck those ones up lmao

                    I think he likes photoshop too much for me he'll have to do some major photoshop on FI to get rid of the gut and bags under the eyes lmao He just sent me a pic god he looks like crap lmao I think its the 6 weeks without a break lmao

                      Okay, that helps-- thank you! I will take the advice of having the officiant stand closer, that is lame that people couldn't hear you as that is the whole point of paying so much for stereo equipment for 10 minutes. The version of Canon in D Dawn sent me is great so I can use my iPod, phew!

                      Thank you for the song, I appreciate it!! So, did you ask them for centerpieces? I'm getting the idea that if you don't 'order' it from them, they put stuff up anyways because they did that with one other gal. I think they must try to sell it first but then do it anyways because they want it to look nice too because other people will see the weddings and want to have their wedding there in the future... ?? Was it the same that Kat had-- vase with sand and I think a shell or something? Trying to decide if I should just leave the centerpieces alone.
