  1. Thank you so much for the feedback on the pictures. The bridesmaids dresses are Melissa Sweet dresses. We got them from a local boutique in Raleigh, NC but they have them a lot of different dress stores.
  2. Thank you so much. I ordered the maracas from a lady in Mexico. Her company is called Mishka Designs. She was wonderful to work with and it was very easy! I sent her a picture of my invitations that were designed and made by Sarah Sprouille and then they came up with a design. I recommend the both of them!
  3. The flowers in my hair were just small white orchids that I requested from the wedding coordinator at the resort.
  4. The cylinder vases were provided by the resort. We also used the sashes from the resort. We were going to get our own sashes to take down with us but we already had 14 suitcases as it was and couldn't worry about putting one more thing in.
  5. The bmaids dresses are mellisa sweet dresses. We got them at a boutique called bella bridesmaid.
  6. I actually just requested to have small orchids from the resort and they brought them to me at the salon. Then the stylist just pinned them in
  7. Thanks everyone! We really did have an amazing time! The ceremony was on the beach by the seaside grille, the cocktail hour was on the lobby terrace and the reception was at the seaside griile. We brought down the majority of the decorations: Candle holders (the shell ones) were from zgalleri, We tool woven brown bead placemants to put under all of the cnterpieces (from target) The blue paper around the vases were from. Mihaelscraft store and Anabel just glued them on for us, we brought down the paper flowers to hang from the ceiling, and we had maracas hand painted by midhka designs in Mexico. I think I answered all of the questions

  9. We just received our slideshow of our wedding pictures and we are so excited! Claudia Rodriguez did an incredible job and we couldn't be any happier! Claudia Rodriguez | Wedding Photographer | Shannon & Michael | July 31th 2009 | Dreams, Tulum Mexico
  10. Claudia is absolutely amazing! She truly made our wedding day wonderful and our pictures just show it all! I would recommend her to everyone.

  12. Quote: Originally Posted by SunBride awesome pictures!

I so wish we had done a casual photoshoot on the resort with our photographer. Thanks SunBride. It was def. a casual photoshoot. We felt really bad because we were trying to rush the photographer the whole time because we weren't really planning on using him at all. So we told him that we didnt want him to come to the dinner, so we just gave hime about 30-40 minutes to do pictures because we wanted to get to dinner with everyone. I wish that I would have realized that they actually took good pictures because I would have asked them to come to the dinner and the actual rehearsal but oh well. Plus because of Natalia's schedule and the other coordinators, we werent able to have the rehearsal until 8:30, after dinner and everything else. So I don't know if he would have stayed that long without being paid more.
  13. I am back from my wedding and honeymoon and will start working on my review soon, I promise. But in the meantime I wanted to give you all the link to the pictures that we have so far from the week of the wedding. We created a site on shutterfly.com yesterday so people from our wedding can upload their pictures, download pictures they want, and order prints that they want. There is an album on the site that is rehearsal dinner pictures that the photographer from the resort took. I must admit we hired an outside photographer (Claudia Rodriguez) for the wedding because we didnt know just how good the resort photographer would be but let me just say... WE WERE AMAZED by the pictures that we got from the resort photographer for the rehearsal dinner. All of the pictures on the site are just regulalr colored ones but he did an amazing job of changing some of the pictures to black and white and sepia tone and he printed those for an album that we got. I hope that you enjoy looking at them and as soon as I get pictures from Claudia Rodriguez I will post those. Here is the link: http://michaelandshannonpageswedding.shutterfly.com/
  14. Ivan was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was extremely organized and so professional. When I mentioned to my father that we would be hiring an outside DJ to come to Dreams Tulum to dj the wedding, he was a little worried and skeptical but after meeting Ivan at our meeting he was absolutely amazed by his professionalism. Ivan had all of our emails and information straight and had gotten all of our music together for the wedding. Needless to say my Dad was so excited that I had done all of the research to find an amazing DJ in the Riviera Maya that would do a great job at the wedding. Ivan arrived early in the evening to prepare for the wedding and was very flexible when we decided to switch things around last minute. I cannot speak highly enough of Ivan and his assistants. They made our wedding truly amazing and everyone had the most wonderful time. He kept everyone dancing and the time flew by way too fast. Our guests were talking about him for the rest of week and wondering how we found such an incredible DJ! I cannot thank him enough for making my wedding reception perfect and showing our 50 guests how people in Mexico can dance and party!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH IVAN! If you are looking for a great DJ please contact Ivan because he will do such an amazing job
  15. Good morning everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know just how wonderful Dreams was! It was absolutely incredible and just like everyone has said in the past, they take care of everything and anything that you could imagine. We had 52 people come with us to the wedding and absolutely no one had a single complaint through the whole week. Their only complaint was not wanting to leave. I am at Secrets Maroma Beach now and loving every moment of it. I will post a review and photos when I get home next week. Again...absolutely no stressing is needed because once you get there everyone takes care of everything!
