    Hacienda Encatada Wedding

    We recently had dinner at DOn Manuels at Capella and I have not seen anything quite as amazing in Cabo as Capella Pedregal. This venue is seriously extraordinary. Have you looked into Cabo del Sol? Cabo del Sol is far from the "mega resort" look. They only do one wedding per day, which means that you have total privacy for you and your guests.

    Karla Casillas - WC

    I completely understand a Bride's frustration when it comes to lack of communication from their Wedding Coordinator, especially when it is a destination wedding. As I mentioned before, I hired Karla Casillas and if I had to do things all over again, I would not change a thing. There were a few times that I felt communication could have been better, but after putting everything into perpective I had to understand that I was not her one and only wedding pending and most importantly, I trusted her with my big day and she completely delivered. Lack of better communication and all, Karla is a well respected Wedding Planner in Cabo and is great at what she does.

    Suzzane Morel...is she really worth it!

    I used SM for my wedding (for myself, BM's and moms--for both hair & make up). My overall grade woud be a B-......It was ok work but not great. The majority of the time SM does not do hair/make up herself or even go to the wedding site the day of the service. A group of staff is assigned to you depending on the size of your group. I am not saying they did a horrible job, but could have been a lot better...especially for the price.

    Videographer HELP!

    I'm a true believer that you get what pay for. Having said that....we hired Angel Zapien and could not be happier with the results. He created not just a video, but an actual story.movie of our wedding. We got married in June 2010 and still watch that video almost every week!!!!! He and his team are simply amazing at what they do. Trust me, you will not regret spending the money!!!

    transportation quotes

    Check out Cabo Transfers http://www.cabotransfers.com/. We used them for our guest's airport trasnportation for our wedding in June. Ericka was a pleasure to work with and communication was prompt and efficient!

    I need Sheraton HDM info!!

    I only dealt with Viviana up to the point when we signed our contract, then they assigned us to a in-house wedding coordinator....for the majority of the time I worked with Oscar Alcocer (he was a gem!!!!!!) but no longer works there, for the later part of the planning my Wedding Coordinator and I worked with Anne Vanolande. She was also great and very prompt with replying to my emails. Sorry to hear you are having such a tough time with them. We had our wedding reception at Cabo del Sol (next to the Sheraton), but for the two other events that we did have at the Sheraton they did not allow us to bring in outside vendors. But I believe for cakes they do charge a "chutting fee" if you go w/an outside vendor.
  8. Hi Marta. I got married in June and I could NOT have been more pleased with the vendors that my WC, Karla Casillas http://karlacasillas.com/ lined up for me. Each vendor was phenominal!!!!!

Photographer- Dino Gomez http://www.dinogomez.com/site/Home_V.html Dino was so much fun to work with! and we were BEYON pleased with the final product!

    I need Sheraton HDM info!!

    Hi tmp2be. I hope you have been able to get in contact with Viviana Alfaro at the Sheraton; if not, here are the banquet and drink menus/pricing. These prices were effective during my wedding in June this year so not sure is they will be different during the time of your wedding. We had our Welcome Dinner, Ceremony and After Party at the Sheraton, but our Reception at Cabo del Sol. However, we had food & beverage orders for the welcome dinner and the after party and I was able to customize the menus for both because I didn't really like what their set selections were. To give you an idea...for the Welcome Dinner we had a "Mexican Style Fiesta Buffet", the food was AMAZING everything was delicious...that dinner ran us $48pp....and for the After Party Midnight Buffet we had a "Create Your Own Taco Buffet"....again, the food was VERY GOOD and that ran us $28pp. I hope this helps. You can also find my review below. Overall, we were extremely pleased with the Sheraton!!!! Drinks Menu.pdf Banquet Kit.pdf

    Resort Spa vs Outside Hair & Makeup?

    I actually just returned from staying at this beautiful resort!...LOVE IT! Although they have a state of the art spa I would definitely go with an outside stylist who is a professional at what they do....and Suzanne and her staff are fabulous! I hired them for my wedding, but they came out to our location which was extremely convenient! I have also been to her salon and I think you will be fine if you have to go get ready at her salon and travel back in a cab...they are pretty well air conditioned. I didn't do a hair & make up trial, I took everybody's satisfaction into consideration on this forum and I was very pleased with my hair and make up Good Luck!
