  1. ok, here is my review! I am still waiting on the professional pictures from Paulina Ulloa! I did the barefoot package and me and all my guests spent the day at caletas.IT was truly a dream come true! I got over to the marina at 830 am and met Kelley who is so sweet! Brad was already on the boat and we headed over on the boat with all the day trippers. Kelley met us over there later and even picked up a bag of candy for me to add to my favor bags! When we got to caletas brad took us up to the bridal suite which is so beautiful! We had fresh fruit and champagne waiting for us. We went down to the beach for a couple of hours and just hung out and enjoyed each others company. I went up the the casita and we spent time in the hot tub drinking champagne and just talking before it was time for lunch..Lunch was at 1 and let me tell you, after we had lunch the day FLEW by! After lunch I had to go take a shower and Fernando was waiting on me when I got out of the shower. He did a half up, half down hairstyle and he rocks! I loved my hair and make-up! He was worth every penny! Then it was an hour to showtime and I started freaking out! I still needed to put on my nails and my dress and my photographer (paulina Ulloa) has just shown up and she was also great to work with! I can’t wait to see my pictures of the wedding and TTD session the next day. While I was getting my hair and make-up done the guys went kayaking! Then it was time for the ceremony. The day trippers had left for the day and the ROTN crowd had not shown up yet so it was just us! I walked down the path from the casita and my step father was waiting on me..Kelley went to play the music and I wanted to walk down the aisle to the Hawaiian “somewhere over the rainbow†we tested it out 100 times before I went to caletas and it played fine..Well it wouldn’t play at the ceremony! So I had to choose another song at the last minute..I could have been bummed about this but I decided to not let it get to me and Im glad I did..so I ended up walking down the aisle to smile by uncle cracker haha..at the end of the day it was all ok! After the ceremony we took more pictures and Kelley set up the reception area..It was beautiful! We just hung out and danced the night away until it was time to go back at 10 pm..it all flew by way too fast and I wish Icould just push re wind and live it all over again!! Oh and I also sprained my ankle the night before and had a touch of food poisoning! It was still a dream come true even with the quirks!
  2. Well Im back! I am working on my review but let me just say WOW!! it was everything I could have dreamed of and then some! Kelley is amazing to work with..we had a few snags in the ceremoney but it was still magical! Review and pics to follow!

I asked Kelley that myself and you do have to include yourself and any outside photographer, videographer, etc..

  8. I had another nightmare that i just had to share with you guys! I dreamed we were all at caletas and the shower didn’t work and I was trying to get ready so I had to bathe in the ocean. Then the tables were all set up and some crazy person with a jeep runs into the cake table and the cake topples in the sand! Then it was already 7 pm and Fernando didn’t show up to do my hair and make-up yet so the ceremony had not even started so I went to the bar and asked for a tequila shot and they did not have tequila so I settled for a lemonade but there was no alcohol at all at caletas..Fernando finally shows up but I forgot my money to pay him so I sent my uncle (who is not even coming to the wedding) back to PV on a canoe and my atm card would not work in Mexico!! I was exausted when I woke up!!

Im going out of my mind with excitement/anxiety!

If you are inquiring about a 2011 date or a date that is months away, yes it probably will take a bit longer to get a response. Just be patient, dont worry as your wedding gets closer you will have Kelly's full attention! thats right andi! she usually responds to my emails by the next day if not the same day now that I am days away..when my date was still months away it would take her 3-4 days which is still not bad! She is awewome!
  11. Im doing the barefoot package and staying all day and I am still having a reception..were not going to the show though..the only thing is we dont get the dance floor set up, we will just dance in the sand

  17. Did anyone get the passed hors d ourvres tray? If so, was it good? I was thinking of adding 1 tray to be passed while DH and I are doing pics so my guests can have a "cocktail hour"..There is so much food for the reception though Im not sure if it would be worth it..
