  1. I'm not sure if this question has already been answered but I can't seem to find it. I was legally married in mexico in april 2011 and am trying to figure out how to obtain a marriage certificate here in Ontario, Candada. If anyone has been through the process and knows what to do please help!!!!
  2. Wow I am getting married in 7 weeks and this is the first I have heard of our marriage not being legal when we get back to Canada????? I'm a little worried now.
  3. Thanks so much Kim, It really helped to get a visual!!!!
  4. Hi ladies, I am wondering if anyone who got married at the Akumal side had their dinner at the Dolce Vita restuarant and if you happen to have any pictures? I am trying to plan what to bring down for decor and would love to have a visual on what the area will look like. Also, did you do your speeches there? Thanks so much, jessica

    Your day sounds like mine lol. I'm getting married april 2011 at Akumal with the ceremony at 4pm, then dinner at the Italian restaurant. We are still debating on the poolside reception but I think it would be worth it! Let me know how the day goes!

    Gran Bahia Principe Akumal

    Hello, This resort was recommended to us by our travel agent. It was one of our top 3 choices and what made it the final decision was the pricing. Our goal was to have our guests pay $1500 or under, and we got it for just a little bit over. Some of our other favourite hotels were closer to $1800. I also checked out this site and trip advisor for reviews and pictures and liked what I saw!!! Good luck with your move back to brampton!!! If you end up choosing GBP we should keep in touch for the planning process! jessica

    Moments That Matter Photography


    Pros: Lincoln took us to the perfect location for our shoot
    Cons: none!
    We did a trash the dress session with Lincoln and his assistant AJ and loved every minute of it - we didn't want it to end!!! I found Moments that Matter while searching the internet for photographers in Mexico and from the first initial email from Lincoln I was comfortable and confident in booking. He always replied to my emails promptly and answered any questions we had. What made me feel even better about our decision was when we saw what a kind-hearted and understanding person Lincoln is. We originally booked Lincoln to capture our wedding day but unfortunately the resort stuck to their "no outside photographers" policy, so we had to cancel. Lincoln was more than willing to refund our deposit with no questions asked. This was extremely considerate and much appreciated because in most circumstances we would have lost our deposit. That's when we decided to do the trash the dress instead.   Our experience with Lincoln that day was incredible and one we will never forget. From the beginning we felt comfortable and at ease, knowing the pictures would be everything we were hoping for. We had so much fun and now that we are back home we can't stop looking at our pictures! There are so many unique and creative photographs. Now we just need to find another occasion to hire Lincoln for!!!!   Thank you for everything, Jessica and Eric
