    Do you happen to know where the carriage stops in a beach wedding ( I am assuming you can use the carriage for the beach wedding as well right?)

    Thanks for your help!!!

    PS I also loved the calla centerpiece you used in your ceremony
    Rosie,

    If you remember in a couple of ours pics, my hubby and I are sitting/leaning against the stairs ledge Well at the top of those steps is where the carriage would stop. The runner starts right as you hit the sand at the bottom of those stairs. So whoever is giving you away would help you off the carriage and walk down the stairs with you.

    I chose the Calla's to go with the bouquet. As you probably already know, the choices for flowers included in the packages aren't very many. I didn't want to typical carnations or roses so I mixed it up a little bit. They do however, allow you to choose the style of bouquet that you want and choose whatever type of flower you want to use. (well that's of course from the types of flowers offered for the included bouquets) But if you look through those choices you'll see that there are a few choices. So I picked my style of bouquet and then went with the callalillies and white roses. I really liked the way mine and my MOH's bouquets turned out. They also have you chose the color ribbon to be tied around the flowers. I was even more surprised when I simply said "navy blue" and they matched my MOH's dress perfectly!

      I loved your pictures, did you take any pictures of your reception? I would love to see those if you have any.

      Again, very happy for you!

      Rosie,

      Here are some of the pictures taken at dinner. As you will see, we ended up on the main karaoke stage. So I guess you can say we shared our first dance with about 100 guests of the resort. Then we were invited to dance along with the entertainment staff. It was a blast! Sorry if some of the pics are blurry...the hubby was taking pictures and we had already enjoyed several bottles of champagne and who knows how many Don Julio shots?

            Hi Ladies!

            We booked a civil wedding ceremony with a group package, so that when we had 10 rooms booked we would get a free cocktail reception, etc. Now we are thinking about making our ceremony symbolic, and getting married here first (but not telling anybody). Does anyone know if you get the same group deals with a symbolic ceremony as with a civil? I don't see why it would matter, but you never know, and my wedding coordinator hasn't gotten back to me yet...

              i'm not sure if the group deals are different. are you referring to the group rate? if so, that group rate applies to ANY wedding packages (religious, civil, symbolic, ect.)

              hope this helps.

                Nibs -
                Do you remember approximately how much Cecilia Dumas runs for a TTD? Her work really is beautiful and there were a number of pics of hers I had to save to show as samples to the resort photog.
                Although I have a fall back that I can do a solo session at lake tahoe, I would so much rather do it on the beach with the waves and non-alpine tempertured water.
                I sent her an email to see if she would even be available in the couple of days following our ceremony. Cross your fingers for me!

                  Hi girls...

                  I just wanted to get back to those of you who were asking the name of my resort photographer...it was David Pe±a. He really puts a lot of time into his work =)

                    Karla,

                    Thank you for the information about the carriage. I can't really even imagine what kind of entrance that would be... i.e. whether it would be less dramatic because people can't really see you up there from the beach, or if it would be more dramatic because you would be high up there....

                    Also, your reception turned out great as the restaurant didn't seem crowded at all and the ceiling of that restaurant is stunning.

                    I have about 3 months to go and I'm really excited.

                      Marie, I didn't get to find out how much Cecilia is - she is on vacation while I'm in Mexico so our conversation kinda stopped there! I started pursuing her though because I saw a post somewhere on here about her doing it for about 500 though. I'm trying to see about Claudia Rodriguez now. This is like the fourth photographer I've wanted that didn't work out for one reason or another - so frustrating.
