  3.  Hi there,  Just wanted say hello, I'm so glad I came across this forum! I am from Vancouver, BC We're not getting married for a while... January 2012 to be exact but we thought we would start planning reeeally early! (Also buying a house in the spring of 2011 so lots of big things happening in the next 15 months)  It was a toss-up between Gran Bahia Principe Coba/Tulum and Grand Riviera/Sunset Princess and we've decided to go with the Grand Sunset Princess, and we are so excited!!  Looking forward to this whole experience  Cheers and happy planning to all the brides!

    Hello - 2012 Bride

    Hi there, Â Glad to hear I'm not the only 2012 bride out there (We're getting married January 2012 in the Mayan Riviera) . My dad laughed at me for planning so early but, like others have said, the earlier the better! Â Happy planning!

    Hi there,  We are working with Marsha Steeves (office located in west broadway). She has been very helpful and professional so far, it definetly helps to go with someone that is experienced in destination weddings. I believe she has 25 years in the destination wedding field  Good luck with the wedding planning!

    ClaudiaPhoto Wedding Photography

    Beautiful work!

    Pros: Service Quality Communication
    Cons: I wish we had chosen a larger photography package
    We hired Claudia for our wedding at Barcelo Colonial Resort on Jan 21st, 2012. The reason we chose Claudia was that we were looking for something above what the resort offered, something really special, and a photographer that could provide us with a nice mixture of candid and standard wedding shots. We looked at Claudia's work and really liked what we saw. She was so friendly with her emails and super fast with the responses, which we really appreciate as this doesn't always happen when planning a destination wedding :)   On the day of the wedding, Claudia arrived on time and was very friendly to our wedding party. I was really worried as it seemed it was going to rain and was overcast, but thankfully the weather worked out to be ok, it wasnt too bright and there was a nice breeze, and Claudia mentioned it would be good for photography. I really enjoyed the direction she provided when we were taking "posing" shots as well. She was there for getting ready shots, and even offered to have her assistant for the day take getting ready shots of the guys, but the guys missed out on this as they we had some phone issues and were having trouble location which room they were in. During the wedding she was right there, and after the wedding we took some wonderful group shots as well as a photoshoot with the 2 of us at Playa Azul (our wedding location). The timing was absolutley perfect as we got some really good light.   Due to our humble budget, we only went for the basic package so I was really anxious to see the shots. When we got them in...wow! We were so stunned as they are soo beautiful. The quality, lighting, candids, etc, so beautiful..it brings us right back to that day. There are some priceless pictures that makes us tear us eveytime we see them, she was able to capture some really beautiful moments.   So to summarize, we are soo happy with the pictures and the service, the only regret we have was not going for a larger package but maybe next time we visit that area, we'll give Claudia a call and see if she's for an "anniversary" photo shoot :)
