    The wedding was at 4:00 and lasted about 30 min.  Juan was hurrying us to get to the lighthouse because he only had about 35 min. left of  light.  Sunsets were at about 5:15 during this time.  Hope that helps.

      Charmaine,  I got the ultimate package and traded a couple of things.  I traded out the cocktail reception for 10 more dinner guests.  I had the reception on the club terrace and actually it worked out perfect because at the last minute I asked Claudia to move it inside the terrace (with the doors open to the terrace) because it was so windy.  Every night in the Towers which is where the club terrace is located right by the Gazebo, they have appetizers for the guests in the privilage club and the bar is right there.  Nobody uses it too much and since we had our table set up there it was like it was all for us.  My guests thought it was just for them and didn't even notice the difference.  This worked out great.  And yes Juan was the photographer that Dreams uses.  I highly recommend him.  Anyone that brings someone from home doesn't know the lighting or the area like Juan does and he took about 750 photos in an hour.  Also he works with the Videoagrapher so the video that is part of the package was a lot like the photos.  I couldn't be any happier.  I also traded out the mexican trio for gazebo decorations and Claudia gave me tulle for the posts and the flowers.  She also was creative and took the extra chair sashes of mine and tied them around the back posts to add color.  Their were two other weddings while I was there and their decorations on the gazebo where not nearly as nice as mine.  I trusted Claudia completely and am glad I did.

        Tiffany, I am so glad I went with hot pink and orange as an accent.  The colors looked amazing in the photos and my bouquet was the most beautiful I could have imagined.  I sent Claudia a picture and said just something like that and she had originally told me that there were too many expensive flowers in there and I told her to just make it match the colors and she practically matched it the same.  She is so great.  I got my girls dresses at JCPenney's for like $40 and they really will wear them again.  The hot pink sashes looked great on the chairs and then they moved them into the reception chairs so the colors looked so good.  The flowers that the provide for the head table centerpiece was amazing also and Claudia also brought in the centerpiece flowers from the ceremony and this was all part of the package.  I brought four vases with decorations that were hot pink, fuschia and orange from home and just had little hot pink bags with mints in them on the tables and it was beautiful.  I really didn'[t have to put a lot of planning into it and am glad I didn't over think it since Claudia does so much!

          I totally agree with Jana.  Your crazy if you bring someone to dreams to use as a photographer.  Juan is the best.

                    Mariel - Congratualtions on your wedding!!!!  Your pictures are great - you were a beautiful bride.  What struck me was how much fun everyone looked like they were having at the reception!  Looked like quite a party.  I love the idea of the first look on the pier - might have to steal that idea :-)
