  1. Welcome to the forum!!!
  2. Here are some pictures: Wedding in Los Cabos
  3. I totally agree with Sodria - about being kind to the guests and choosing the Riu Santa Fe. Although, Riu Palace is more attractive in term of the wedding location.

    Cuba Wedding

    I will post pictures from Paradisus Rio de Oro and Playa Pesquero when I come back. I will be in Holguin from May 3 to May 10 this year to photograph two weddings in two different resorts. Yes, Paradisus Rio de Oro is now for adults only. I was there in June 2007 and kids were still allowed and I believe they changed that in November 2007.

Hi there, I would recommend to book your ceremony around 3pm or 3:30pm. I will be shooting the wedding at the Majestic Colonial Resort in Punta Cana on November 24th and the bride booked her ceremony at 3pm. The sunset is around 5:30pm and I think you need at least 1.5 hour for all of your photographs.

Hi Lisa, I only know "The Barefoot Man " band ( Barefoot Man in the Cayman Islands Caribbean Music ). They are based in Grand Cayman Island and they perform at the Reef Resort. I am not sure if they play at the wedding receptions, but you can always email George Nowak at GoneFishing@BarefootMan.com and ask for recommendations. I hope this helps

  15. Hi Sandra, I am not sure about group rates, but here is what I paid when I was there in December. I took a taxi from the Riu Palace Resort (which is next door) to the town and it cost me $10 one way. You can also take a water taxi from your resort beach to the Marina and I believe it is $10 round trip.
