  3. Oops! That tree is not inside the AHR! Lol. It's inside the lobby of Playacar Palace

  5. Hey girls! Sorry, for the delay! AJane, you guys will LOVE it! The place is beautiful and the staff really go out of their way to accommodate you. If Wilma is still there, I would try to get assigned to her. She set everything up flawlessly, so much so that we gave her an extra 60 bucks at the end as a tip. She was phenomenal! And Cindy, I actually had a woman here in Philly do them! If you want to contact her to see if she would do through e-mail, her address is riley4@verizon.net and her name is Theresa from Creative Crafts. Good luck and best wishes ladies!! xoxo
  6. Hey babymila! Sorry I missed this! It was actually a local woman here in Philadelphia that took care of them for me!
  7. Thank you so much, Krysta!!!! I can't even take it! I have to literally try to not watch it everyday, hahaha! Your day is only a month from now, congrats girl!!!
  8. Ladies, I don't know when you booked, but prior to I believe March 2011 there was no fee for sound set up on the beach. Since I booked before that, I stood firm that I was not paying for it. That being said, there was a girl who had her wedding day the day before mine who did not have the sound system and you could not hear a thing. If we could not have had ours for free, honestly I think I would have just shelled out the money.
  9. Thanks girl!!!!!!! It was unreal! I had no idea and you can def tell by my face! Haha!
  10. Hey ladies! I know there are some Philly area brides on this thread, if youse (yes, youse for my Philly girls! haha) are having an AHR, you should totally check out the videography company we used for ours. They are freaking amaaaaaazing!!!! Here's the link for the "preview" they did for us, it's absolutely ridiculous and they were super friendly and easy to work with. http://vimeo.com/37990004
  11. Hey ladies!! All my pro pics are done and they are freaking AMAZING!!!! There are almost a thousand so I have them broken into albums on my FB. Friend request if you would like, or just ask me if there is something specific you want to see Name is Kristyn McCrohan
  12. OMG! Do it!!!!! Lol! Girl, seriously, it totally calmed our nerves, got us the pics we were looking for AND took absolutely nothing away from the walk down the aisle. Both my husband and I were crying during the processional even after doing the first look. If anything, the shoot made me more excited!!
  13. Joda, it was soooo much fun! We loved doing it, even if it was sunrise the day after our wedding. I'll do anything for good pictures!! And like I said, if you have thought at all or your photog has suggested a First Look session, I would absolutely 100% tell you those First Look pics are my favorite ones hands down.
  14. Me too!!! I was so happy we did the TTD!! I would also ABSOLUTELY recommend the first look to any bride. We didn't have any other time alone for the wedding day until it was the end of the night and we were dead exhausted! Plus, you can totally see the excitement in our embrace. We wouldn't have had those types of pics with our family around and racing the sunset for pics
  15. Ladies, don't discount the idea of bringing flowers down with you! It saved us a TON of money and no one believed that they weren't real and they look even more real in the pictures. The woman I used was very affordable. Pictures of the bouquet are in the blog http://www.jennycastrophotography.com/blog/?p=554 and the woman's site is http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/simply-classic-creations-noblesville/website/1ee97e2791be8445.html
  16. Hi Traci!! There were three kids (6,6 and 8) in our wedding party and they LOVED it!! In fact, my little diva sister (6) laid on the lounge chair by the pool, sipped her virgin Pina Colada, put on her shades, and proclaimed "This is better than Disney!" Hahahaha. They were so sad to leave!
  17. Thank you ladies!!!!! My gallery is almost ready (I don't think my best friend has SLEPT since coming home from Mexico) with over a THOUSAND edited images! Omg! I may have to call out sick so I can have a viewing party with my damn self!
  18. Best advice I can give with exceptions is to make sure you get everything in writing. Seriously. You deal with many different people during your wedding planning so what one tells you might not fly with the next. Make sure you have it in an e-mail! I had to forward quite a few to explain what had been promised or told to us.
  19. Hey there leche510 , which picture were you looking at? I think it might be the venue we had are AHR at that you were looking at. If it's this one, then yup it's my reception venue back here in Philly
  20. CDC it was amazing!!! Hahaha!! My hubby brought me out to the dance floor, sat me in a chair and made me close my eyes. When I was allowed to open them all I see is my husband taking his jacket off in a very stripperish way! Lol! I started cracking up laughing, and next thing I know the Phanatic is pushing him out of the way and dancing in front of me! It was great! He was there for about 40 minutes dancing with guest and posing for pictures!
  21. Thank you so much girl!!! Your day will be here sooo soon! And yes, Jenny did an amazing job. Can you believe she is only in her second year having the photog business? Crazy!
  22. Yay!!!! My photographer (my best friend) has been working like crazy and has finished our blog!! I cry every time I look at it!! http://www.jennycastrophotography.com/blog/?p=554
