Thanks!!! Imdels, we were able to stay at the ceremony location for as long as we wanted - and did linger for quite a while after the nuptuals/champagne/photographs, etc. The steel drum band played the whole time! They were scheduled to start playing at 2:45pm. As I said, I was late! We not only took the token wedding photographs, but also goofing off pictures of the Bridal Party - after mos
  3. How long was the ceremony? (We have the 5:00pm ceremony so wondering how long we have before sunset...) Petals~ Our ceremony was to start at 3:00pm... and I was about 20 minutes late!! The ceremony (which included the sand ceremony) probably lasted about 20-30 minutes. I would say that the sun was setting somewhere around 5:30pm... Don't be late, sista! Of course, sunset shots would be perfect too. Was the volume okay with the ipod & speakers? Were you able to set it up at Blue Lagoon for no extra charge? Somebody mentioned a $200 charge to use speakers/microphone so just wond

  5. I brought along an iPod and Bose docking station, which we used for music throughout the meal - and for the father/daughter dance, our first dance, groom/mother dance, etc. It worked out fine... Our First Dance. Photo by JOSH BROWN. Matthew & his daughter... SOOO sweet! Photo by JOSH BROWN. Following our reception, we headed upstairs to the Infinity Bar, where a live band was playing. It was a really good time and a much better option (we thought) than paying the $900 for a DJ - where 26 of us would have been dancing amongst ourselves! The "mingling" was a much better opti
  6. Our wedding set-up: The walk down with my father... (lamb to the slaughter!) Photo by JOSH BROWN Matthew & I actually left our vows at home - both the vows AND sand ceremony vows (not good!) but the minister did an ABSOLUTELY amazing job - and our nuptuals were truly, (although still run-of-the-mill) very special. He was wonderful! A steel drum Band played me down the aisle! They were brilliant and cost $300 per hour. They actually played for longer than an hour for us, poor souls! The nuptuals: Photo by JOSH BROWN The Sand Ceremony, which included
  7. Where to start?!! I can't believe that it has come and gone so quickly! Our DW was everything we could have wished it would be... and more! And I'm so excited to finally be sharing this with you all - future Grand Palladium brides, you are going to have a wonderful, wonderful time! I will try to keep it brief and give *my own* personal opinions and thoughts on our experiences with our DW in Lucea, Jamaica. OneLove, I am using your review as a guideline - I hope you don't mind! Here goes... RESORT: Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton, in Lucea, Jamaica. DATE OF WEDDING: December 15th,
  8. I cannot say enough about Josh! You were wonderful in every way! Not only does Josh take AMAZING photographs but he's an all-round, full-service professional, who helped us in more ways than you can ever imagine! Making phonecalls, providing refreshments when badly needed (!) carrying stuff... I could go on and on. But most of all, keeping a calm atmosphere, when the shit could have hit the fan! Josh, YOU WERE THE BEST! Here are a few of our TTD photographs... They were taken the afternoon after the wedding, when my new husband & I were, let's just say, feeling no pain!
  9. How does one do this? I'm under the impression that this will make posting my review and planning journal easier Because I can load it onto my blog and then cut and paste? Am I off in left field?!
  10. Well, as you well know, mine didn't look too much like that on the day now, did it Josh?!! You're the best! And I've no doubt, worked your magic to make it look as much like #1, as humanly possible...
  11. ... and it was an absolute blast!!! I can't believe that it came and went so quickly! But I promise to give a full review of it all over the weekend. I can't say enough about the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton! It was an absolutely beautiful resort... and the wedding itself went off better than I could ever have imagined it would! Matthew & I were the first to be married at the new gazebo location! And it was absolutely beautiful - perched on a cliff at Lover's Bluff, overlooking the water! Hang tight and I shall post info and pictures as soon as I can!
  12. This is OUR actual wedding set-up! The gazebo, located at it's new location - Lover's Bluff. An absolutely magnificent view, perched on a point above the water! Truly a beautiful setting. http://i276.photobucket.com/albums/k...laneous140.jpg Another option is on the beach. This photo was taken of a wedding taking place whilst we were there... http://i276.photobucket.com/albums/k...laneous083.jpg
