Be sure to clarify what the $12k gets you. I understand they no longer offer a full restaurant buyout (i.e., you would not have the entire restaurant closed for your day). I think the $12k covers use of the terrace and salon. Please let me know if you need any additional information...Lisa Ooops! Forgot to include

  3. Baja Cantina (beach location, not marina). Perfect spot--reasonably priced, good food and perfect location for a welcome dinner. The restaurant has a trio playing on Friday evenings, so they setup between our event and between the main restaurant so our guests thought we brought them in.
  4. Welcome, welcome, welcome! You've found the right spot to help you with your venue decision. Happy Planning!
  5. Oh my Lord, I have not been on the site for quite some time but am not surprised by this email string. As Jessica recommends, be sure all important decisions between yourself and SML are documented via email. Emma WILL agree to one thing and change it, if it does not benefit SML, weeks before your wedding date. They tried to pull a couple of fast ones weeks before our wedding but, fortunately, I had email backing up what Emma had promised to me. The venue is amazing but I fear the demand for events is so high, there, they feel they could charge additional $$ and not act in a professional
  6. We had our wedding @ SML. Yes, the pools are lit at night--very beautiful! So, Emma, hmmm? She was a pleasure to work with in the beginning, however, she got a little funky towards the end. We had an issue with the buyout. Fortunately, I kept all emails so, with the help of our wedding coordinator, working with management, we made sure they honored what Emma communicated to us. I have not been able to submit a full report on the entire experience but I'd have to give SML an A. It would have been an A++ if it wasn't for the buyout issue. The venue is phenomenal--you and your guests will h
  7. I just got married there last month and the website photos don't even do the location justice. I, still, wish I was there! Our guests are still talking about the location--they were amazed. I only wish I could've seen the looks on their faces when they walked onto the terrace for the ceremony. It was great to see the DAZZLED looks on our wedding party's face the day of the rehearsal! Feel free to send me a PM and I can give you more info. Lisa

  9. Thank you all for the well wishes! We got back on Sunday and wish we were still there and could re-live the day over and over. The day was magical--so much more than I could ever imagined. The entire wedding weekend was amazing!!!!!! I've been super quite on the boards over the last couple of months with the addition of a new job and finalizing wedding plans but promise to post a full review and pics in the next couple of weeks. I would not have been able to have the wedding of my dreams if it wasn't for the all of the great advice, tips, direction, ideas, etc. from all the soon to be an
  10. Hiya! We were just married @ SML on the 10th (just returned from Cabo last Sunday)! I cannot even put into words how fantastic and amazing our wedding day was! I'm still on cloud 9 and want to be back and relive the day over and over again. The buyout fee is inclusive of all food, bev, corkage fee, cake, etc. Tag on 10% tax and a separate line item for 17% svc charge (fortunately, they do not tax you on the service charge like most places back in the states do). Be sure to include in your contract that even though you're doing the buyout the restaurant will be exclusively yours, irr

Depending on the boat size - your group will probably take up the majority of it --- IMO since it's not a rehearsal dinner or welcome dinner --- I don't think that it's as impo
  13. Ooh, that is going to look fabulous! I can't wait to see the finished product. You may want to include the nearest hospital/emergency clinic. Hopefully, none of your guests would need this info but I know I always like to know where the nearest hospital is when I'm out of town. Good luck!
  14. Congrats Natalie! Sending good wedding vibes your way!!!!
  15. Hi Ladies! We've decided to book a sunset cruise the day after our wedding and wanted to get your opinions on booking a private vs a non-private tour. We'll have approximately 60 people who will join us and are getting quotes in the $3000-$3300 range for a cruise (light snacks and beverages included). Anyone have any opinions about sharing the boat with others. Also, let me know if you have any recommended vendors you've worked with.
