  1. Here is my ring! It is Ritani and absolutely beautiful! I love love love my ring! My hubby did a great job picking it out!
  2. Thanks ladies! It was incredible! Shanlovesalexi- you will LOVE her! She was so great! I'm sure yours will turn out beautiful!
  3. Aww thanks Matt! You are so sweet! Well if thats the case, I'll take the EXTRA hotness any day! Haha!
  4. Thanks Matt! There are just too many amazing pictures to choose from! You guys definitely did such an incredible job. Not only are our pictures incredible, you ALL were so so so sweet and encouraging! You, Sol, Juan, and Melissa are some of my favorite people. I SWEAR I am going to practice holding my breath and looking more graceful underwater so next time I get to to an underwater shoot I will be looking WAY more photogenic! I don't know how you got the pictures you did though...I must have been one of your toughest clients! Hahaha! Thank you! I love Del Sol too! Haha doesn't sound pervy at all! Thank you very much! I LOVE hearing that! Hey, if you got 'em flaunt 'em! LOL! Oh man, there are SO many pictures that I LOVE I can't even pick just one. It helps to have a whole GANG of talented people to help make you look amazing! Thanks to Del Sol, Sara Tamargo, and Red-i by Chelsea, I was looking fabulous and feeling like a model!
  5. Yes I bought day passes for both of them. I'm torn about Abilene... at the time when I wrote the review my little sister had brought up how she hated her hair the first time around and that really stuck in my head. After my friend touched up my hair I ended up liking mine a lot, but at the same time was exactly what I wanted. My mom was THRILLED!! She loved her hair and was SUPER excited that she had all the volume in her hair. She seriously has the finest hair ever (and hardly any of it), so she was skeptical, but she ended up LOVING hers. My other little sister had a picture and she really liked her hair too. Honestly I think if you are prepared and have pictures you should have no problems with your hair!
  6. Aww thanks! I think you should definitely hire Del Sol...I'm of course a little biased! Haha! But hey, the proof is in the puddin~ they rock it every single time!
  7. Aww thanks Matt! At this point in time I think I was starting to stress because we were late for the ceremony and no one could figure out how to lace up my dress! Somehow Juan was able to get pictures of me NOT freaking out. Now THATS talent! Haha!
  8. I ALSO wore barefoot jewelry at the reception as well as during our TTD made by Redi-i by Chelsea! I also had a some made for my 3 sisters and mom. They LOVED them and not only wore them after the ceremony, but wore them ALL week! They were absolutely gorgeous and we all got several compliments all week by passersby!
  9. I was IN LOVE with my shoes! Pink is my favorite color and it was the main color in our "theme", so it fit in perfectly. I LOVED how it also had some bling in it...I do love to sparkle! I ended up getting these last minute at Nordstrom for around $130 about 3 weeks before we left and they ended up being perfect! They are Steve Madden Partyy-R in Fuschia!
  10. Here is my dress! I posted a crappy cell phone pic of me trying it on in the store earlier in the thread, but now that I got my wedding pictures back from Del Sol I have WAY better pictures to show off my pretty dress! Unfortunately (or fortunately in most cases) I somehow lost quite a bit of weight the last 2 weeks before the wedding because all of a sudden my dress was laced as tight as it could go and I felt like I was swimming in it! Fortunately I am pretty busty, so it fit my chest well enough to hold the dress up, but because there was so much extra room in the tummy, the boning in the corset bowed out a bit and made me look like a had a bigger pooch than I did than when I was heavier and it fit more tightly. SHOOT!
  11. Hey ladies! We just got our TTD pictures back from Del Sol and I am in LOVE!!! Matt and Sol took us too a great secluded spot in Playa del Carmen where we did a bunch of pictures in the trees, beach, and cenote! I had a BLAST! Honestly, even though a TTD is not cheap, I HIGHLY recommend doing one. I can't tell you how much I look at mine and am just amazed at how great we look. When else in your life can you wear your dress again and have a little fun while a super talented photographer is making you look HOT HOT HOT!!! Here are a few of my favorites!!
  12. Thank you so much! It has been an incredible amount of work, but SOOO worth being out of a big company with shadey practices. I definitely do A LOT of brides! I hope the review helps! I'm glad I could be of some help! I HIGHLY recommend hiring either Del Sol or their sister company La Luna. All of our pictures were absolutely incredible and worth every single penny! I can't tell you how often I look at my pictures...I am starting to feel a little narcissistic, but I can't help but feel so proud of our pictures and how good they made me look! LOL! As far as I saw on our bill we were NOT charged a set up fee. If there was one it may have been like $50. Our bill was pretty dang easy and only had our final wedding bill...all of the charges on the bill that I can remember were the BIG stuff like the reception, JSAV, Zuniga, cake, etc. Perhaps we weren't charged because it was such an easy location?? This whole big fee is news to me! Thank you! Yes, I had a VERY difficult time with Marvin. I would say that if you have had better communication with other florists, and you think they could get through and sneak the flowers to you, I would HIGHLY suggest using one of them. I can say that as small of a problem as it was on the big day, the fact that the bouquets did not fit in my centerpieces REALLY bothered me all night! It just looked stupid and sloppy...and that was one of the final requests I had made several times and one that he confirmed a couple days before the wedding. I imagine that maybe he is getting too busy with all of us MP brides and is having a hard time handling the work load...but still, even if he was going to take months to answer me, he could have at least gotten the flower pictures right!! Thanks so much! It's been a crazy year so far, but by far the BEST year yet! Thank you! It was definitely amazing. I had a lot of help from Sara (makeup) and Del Sol! They can make just about anyone look like models! Yes the theft was a bummer. Especially because one of them actually had their SAFE broken into! Their code had been disabled and reset (which only can be done with a special master key), so they had to have someone come and open their safe for them and that is when they discovered their stuff was missing!! My Uncle was mostly upset because apparently MP security was trying to make it sound like it was THEIR fault and that they had done something to leave it open...or that it was staged. Who knows...but he sure didn't appreciate MP's lack of action. Its crazy that BOTH happened the day we were leaving to go down to Playa del Carmen. Makes ya wonder.....
  13. Hi Ladies!!! I'm Baaaaaaack! I know. Long time, no see...or post....but I am back in action! I figure I should give a little update on my life to somewhat explain my absence from the forum, so here it goes: As everyone I'm sure is aware of or will be, the last couple of months before you leave is hectic to say the least! Once down there it was a total whirl wind of meetings, family, friends, dinners, drinks, and last minute details. As soon as I got back from the wedding I started working on opening a new lash/wax lounge, "Lashed with Love" with my friend and colleague as well as working my regular spa 40+ hours a week. After many late nights and long days, we finally got the store opened in March! After that I was working 60+ hours 6 days a week and trying to slowly transition over to Lashed with Love to give my clients a chance to see me before I left (so I could give them a heads up) and to make sure I was giving my manager time to find new hires and leave on good terms. I also wanted to make sure we were stable enough at LwL before I quit my job since I had many bills to pay after my surgeries and the wedding. Not only was I working a lot, but the many different aspects that go into a new business is enough to keep me up late nights constantly working on something work related! Then there is everything else that needs to be done in the time in between that gets pushed to the side...I think my poor dogs might have gone a little nutty due to the lack of fresh air and walks! BUT as of this week I am no longer at my other job and am now full time at our new store! I never thought working 40+ hours would be a breeze, but I'm amazed how much more time even just those extra 20 hours can give me! Yay!! I began slowly building my review on MP and tonight finally finished it!! So now that I am not a slave to work, I am fully able to answer any and all questions! Here is my MP review- http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/moon-palace-golf-spa-resort-all-inclusive/reviews/5928 Thanks for being so patient with me ladies! I hope all your planning is going well and you aren't stressing too much. Just remember it WILL WORK OUT!
  14. I LOVE this picture Matt! Juan did such an incredible job! I loved how he was like "oh man, I just thought of something" and dashed out of the room and came back SO excited about the cool picture he just took that he couldn't wait to show me! He was so funny and sweet! I think this was one my favorite pictures: My dad who NEVER dances! Juan got a GREAT picture of this rare and hardly ever seen moment. I love getting to see pictures like this one~ the joy and happiness people had that made them want to just get up and dance!
  15. Samantha~ I agree with Matt! We had a Catholic ceremony (which is about an hour) at 4 pm (the sun set around 5:30), so it only gave us about 30 mins of daylight, and were totally rushing after the ceremony to get the group shots, parent/bride & groom shots, bridal party shots, bride & groom shots, etc. We got some great pictures, but I wish we had more time to have some more fun with different poses and settings. Give yourselves plenty of time so you don't think back and wish you would have gotten a picture that you would have wanted but because of time constraints didn't get. I have to say though the sunset shots that Juan Jose got were amazing! Del Sol was the BEST choice we made in regards to planning our wedding. You can't go wrong! Good Luck!
