  1. jlwedding- sorry for the delay, but I know that our friends who are shooting our wedding are starting to include actual wedding package prices along with their destination expenses but they might work something out... another idea would be us! I don't know if you caught that we are wedding photographers too...but after we get married in august we are going to be marketing ourselves much more toward destination weddings... we recently saw that another photographer posted an offer to the BDW brides to shoot a number of destination weddings for free with expenses covered...so we might do something like this...i don't know if other brides would be excited for something like this, but if we didn't have friends in the industry, it would be a dream come true for me! photography is just too important to me to not make sure that we have great pictures that tell our story and we love forever...also aric and i have been talking about how we can best give back to the BDW brides, so the thought of doing something like this came up, and we know we'd get some beautiful pics out of it...but i don't know i guess we will see... for us photography was obviously the first priority, and unfortunately, we also felt the pain of trying to find a good photographer to document our destination wedding...most "good" ones that are marketing themselves for destination weddings are too expensive and we have read some resort photographers are leaving many couples with a wish that they had hired someone else...thus we were really worried when we started planning our wedding... we were lucky because we have friends in the industry that are willing to help in the situation but not all couples have someone like that... anyway, we will see...but let us know if we can help you ourselves or maybe help you find someone --->what is everyone doing for flowers? is anyone doing something other than the onsite flowers?? this is driving me crazy!!
  2. jlwedding- MP has a flaky policy about photographers as outside vendors but it is allowed according to the coordinators we've spoken with...they're just supposed to be staying at the resort as your guest...we are bringing a photographer friend of ours to our wedding and we are actually shooting a wedding up there for a couple in July so it is allowed one idea might be looking around for a photographer that would shoot the wedding for free if you cover the cost of their expenses...this is what we are doing for our couple in July and many photographers who are great photographers but haven't shot many destination weddings are often open to this...just a thought...

  5. Hey everyone...I posted this in the newbie area but I thought I might introduce us here too...I finally decided we needed to introduce ourselves and share our story. When we first started wedding planning we knew we wanted to get married on a beach but had no clue where or even where to start, then we found this forum. It was a fabulous day and we were so excited to find some direction, since I was already ready to pull my hair out! Since, then Aric and I have spent numerous hours on the forum reading everything we could about different options for our wedding. Now I am super excited to be a MOON PALACE BRIDE!!! I want to thank all the ladies who have spent endless hours sharing their ideas, experiences, and reviews so we could ease our own fears. It has really been hard to plan a wedding, considering that we are in the industry ourselves. We have seen so many beautiful weddings with amazing ideas, details, personalities, and unique events that planning our own became quite the task. We are wedding photographers ourselves, so we see all the little moments, special details, and events of the wedding day as the words of the couple's love story. And when we give a couple a wedding album telling the story of their day, we feel that it should draw others into their day, emotionally connected them with the couple and their love story. Thus we want to take care in picking every detail as it relates to our love story and the family and friends that have played a role in it; this is where the forum has helped immensely with the sharing of others' ideas and love stories. A little about our love story: Aric and I were introduced to each other at a photography conference. Our mutual friend Brittany had invited us both to go with her and a couple other girls to a photojournalism conference in Fort Worth, TX. Long story short-it was fate. I'm not the kind of girl that goes out on a limb and takes a trip with a group of people that I don't really know. I made every excuse for myself why I should not go-but in the end I knew that none of those excuses were sufficient. So I walked into Brittany's house that day whispering prayer after prayer under my breath and looked up to see Aric standing there-big smile and all and I knew I was on that trip for a reason. That weekend was the beginning of our friendship and when we got back we knew it was on the road to blossom into something more. Aric pursued me over and over again and as our friendship grew so did our love. He's my best friend in the whole wide world and graciously loves me in ways I do not deserve! I simply cannot wait to marry him!! August 1st can't come soon enough!!!!! Not long after the conference, Aric started a photography business shooting engagements, kids, families, or whatever came his way as he finished business school. I began shooting sessions with him for fun, and we realized it was a fun dynamic for us to document others' love stories in the midst of our own. Finally, we started shooting together 100% of the time, and I joined the business. Since then we have both become full time wedding photographers and have started another side business renting photobooths. We can't wait for our wedding, and though we are super busy ourselves, hopefully I can find a way to give back to the many ladies who have given here themselves. Thanks for all you do ladies!!!! Because of you our wedding will be even better! Oh and you can check out our blog to learn more about our love story and life! And lastly, I'll leave you with a with pictures from our engagement You can check out the proposal story on our blog too! www.aricalanphotography.blogspot.com
