About Linzibella

  1. Hi there! Just looking for advice or comments about any photo sharing websites that you ladies may have used to upload and share photos with you guests. We would really like for all our guests to have access to the account and be able to upload their photos all to one place (vs. each having individual accounts and having to share albums). We would also like to maintain some control over it (i.e. not have everyone use the same log in and password to one account) so that photos can't be deleted by accident by someone. My DH is looking into this, but I thought that all of you that have done this before might have some thoughts on which programs worked for you. Thanks!

    using a credit card at ROR???

    Re traveller's cheques, I called the resort directly and they only cash them into Jamaican dollars, no USD. You would have to go to the bank in town to cash traveller's cheques into US funds. I'm not 100% decided but I think that I'm just going to estimate how much money I need to pay Chandlyn for the "free" wedding package, the steel drum band, reception cost, flowers etc, and bring that in cash (and never let it leave my sight). I don't want any extra charges on my credit card (and the flower shop and an Lee's Tours have both told me that there will be extra charges to use credit cards -between 5 and 7% I think). What a pain!

    Thanks Kimmer. It's looking like that might be my best option. I'm glad to hear that your pictures turned out well. Did you post them on the forum? If you did, can you send me or post the link to the posting? Thanks!

    ROR Minister ceremony words????

    I have asked Chandlyn, the ROR wedding coordinator the same question and if she could send me a transcript of what is said at the ceremony. She only sent me the actual vows (Do take Groom to be your wedded husband....). I've sent her another e-mail to ask if there is anything else that is said, or if we have to provide that if required. I don't want a whole lot said, but a little more than just the vows. It will only take us 2 minutes! If I hear back from Chandlyn, I'll pass what she sends me.
  6. Hi ladies! I'm getting married at the ROR on January 20th, 2009. I'm looking for ideas regarding a photographer since mine has recently cancelled on me last minute. I have spoken with a couple of you about this, but I think that there are maybe a few more of you out there. Are any of you that are going to be down around then bringing a professional photographer on their trip with them that you wouldn't mind sharing on January 20th? I would of course pay for some of your costs. Or have you booked a local photographer and could pass on their name (I am aware of Brian Nejedly). Someone also mentioned that they had seen some pictures done by Christopher (one of Michael assistants at the Photoshop). Do any of you know whose wedding that was and have a link to the thread with the review/pictures? Thanks for your continued help!

    Photographer for ROR

    Hi! If anyone has information about a local photographer that they've used successfully lately, I'd love to hear about it, get a name/website. Has Michael's work been any better lately? I think that I remember reading about another photographer working at the Photoshop now too? Is that right? Is s/he any good? The photographer that I was going to bring down with me has just bailed on me, a couple days before our final payment was due. I'm now trying to figure out what I'm going to do. Thanks ladies!
  8. Hi! If anyone's thinking about this, I have just found out that I actually have until Wednesday to have all the travel details/final payment worked out. So....if you are getting married the week of Jan 17-24 at the ROR and you have guests that still want to come but couldn't get flights anymore, I have a few spots available. Maybe you just want to check out the location for your upcoming wedding? Or have a nice winter vacation? Let me know! ~Lindsay
  9. Hi everyone! Well, a few things have fallen apart lately for my ROR wedding Jan 17-24th. My photographers have bailed on me (3 days before our full payment is due) and 2 of my finace's Aunts have cancelled their trip in the last 2 days. I'm starting to feel like I want to cancel too and the "Why didn't we just elope" feelings are starting to creep in. I know it will be fun in the long run, but this is driving me crazy. Anyways, there are now 3 flights and 2 hotel rooms out of Toronto and 1 flight and hotel room out of Montreal available for Jan 17-24th if anyone else is plannig their wedding for that week and needs some extra spots. I know that the Sunquest packages sold out really quickly, so maybe you have a couple of guests that didn't book in time and still want to go. If you do, PM me and I'll send you my contact information or that of my travel agent, so they can book and join you at your wedding. Only catch is it has to be done this immediately as details have to be finalized/payments made on Monday, Dec 1st. I hope everyone's planning is going well and you're not having similar issues! ~Lindsay

    Seagrape or Poolside?

    Hi! I've booked Mammee Bay for our dinner and Seagrape for our reception (although I hadn't thought of poolside for a reception. I think that would be nice). I was kind of digging the idea of dancing in the sand, having a bonfire and some tiki torches maybe. I've heard some say that the disco is a little cheesy, and we can all head there anyways after the beach if the party continues late into the night!

    Boudoir Photos - Toronto

    Hi there! I also want to put in my vote for Lisa Mark and Tania Beattie. I just did my BD shoot on Friday and was going to post some pictures when I get home tonight. Lisa and Tania were fabulous. Tania's hair and make-up were well worth it and the couple of teaser pics I've seen from Lisa so far are great. I was so nervous, but they made me feel at home and made the shoot so easy and fun (and I normally hate having my picture taken). I rented the same studio as the girls above mentioned and it was really cool. Lots of brick, wood floors, cool old couch and great big windows. She is planning a BD marathon with Tania for the near future so contact her (she's very quick to reply) as that could be a way to do it a bit cheaper (although I think that her prices are pretty reasonable). Her website is www.lisamarkphotography.com and Lisa's website is brides Etc.(although she is set up through Lisa for the BD shoot) Anyways, I just wanted to throw my two cents in too. Lisa was great if you're looking to do this type of shoot (although her wedding and engagement photos are beautiful too!). I'll post some pics of my shoot later tonight.
  12. Dear Krys, Thanks so much for your post. I really appreciate you taking the time to include the links to those gorgeous pictures you took. I think your suggestion of doing a maternity shoot instead of a TTD is a great idea (my Mom wasn't really impressed with the TTD idea anyways LOL!). Your pictures really are great and captured the joy of the parents. Thanks again! ~Lindsay Quote: Originally Posted by Tropical Imaging Keep your photographer, but instead of having a TTD session, bring some flowing types of fabric and do a cool maternity shoot. 7 months is the perfect time. We've had a few maternity shoots over the years on island and they are so fun. Most of them are not on our blog as our moms have been very daring and choose not to have them online, but here's an idea. http://blog.tropicalimaging.com/2008...nths/#more-529 http://blog.tropicalimaging.com/2007...-and/#more-381 and a couple of samples are in this post http://blog.tropicalimaging.com/2008/05/27/fathers-day/ We have a few more in our portrait gallery on our website as well. Get excited about what amazing maternity shots you'll have and maybe you can make plans to have a family portrait shoot a year later. (We have a few families that started as brides/engagements and come back every year to have us document their lives from maternity onward.) Here is a recent family that has come every year since their engagement/wedding/maternity... http://blog.tropicalimaging.com/2008...rains-part-ii/ I hope some of these can help you get excited about some amazing photographs you can get!!! Congratulations. Krys
  13. Thanks so much everyone. After reading only a couple of posts, I decided I must have been having a "pregancy brain" moment(s) when I was thinking about cancelling. You're all right. I should keep the good photographer and get the best pictures possible of this wonderful moment. I would regret it later on I'm sure if I didn't go with what I originally wanted. Great idea on the maternity pics. Thanks for the ideas. I will be sure to post them when I'm back (although it's not for a long time still). Thanks again for all your support and advice. I knew I could count on you. ~Lindsay

  15. Hi girls, I'm looking for your thoughts on a photography issue. So I had decided on and booked a photographer from home that I'm really happy with for our wedding in Jamaica in January. He's not charging me for the photography but we have to pay for his and his wife's (who is his assistant) travel expenses. This should be okay, because we have enough people booked on our group package that I'll get one "free" trip, so we'll only really be paying for one person and I figure that this a great deal for photography for basically the whole week. And I really wanted nice photography. So where's the problem, right? Well, last month I found out that I'm unexpectedly pregnant. I'm going to be about 7 months at the wedding. So this is not going to be the wedding that I had in my head, but we're going to still go ahead as planned. I can't decide now whether I should keep the good photographer and pay for his trip, or since the pictures aren't going to be what I had imagined (well, what I had imagined but with a beach ball under my dress and a chubbier face) should I just go with the photographer at the resort, who isn't as great but will be cheaper. My dress is going to have to be altered and so it's not going to be "perfect" anymore and so I'm waffleing about this now because I'm just not sure if I'll be happy with any of the pictures. What do you ladies think? I know this is a personal decision, but you are all always so insightful and helpful in making decisions. Anyone been in a similar situation? Thanks as always!
