  1. I used Ismael for my wedding on 8/23 at the moon palace resort! He was FABULOUS! I could not tell you how happy I was with the photos! He is very flexible and will do any types of photos that you want. He is a great artist! I strongly recommend him!! Quote: Originally Posted by MrsMom Has anyone used Ismael Pacheco before?

  2. Here's a sneak peek of or pictures. We LOVE them! Our AHR is next Saturday. After that I am sure I will have more time to be on here. Right now things are a bit crazy. If you have any questions message me and I"ll respond. You guys are going to have an AMAZING time. http://www.ismaelpachecoblog.com/
  3. I'm sorry I must have worded this wrong. YOu cannot use your credits for decor. I got all my linens from ebay.
  4. You will not be able to use your credits to upgrade the complimentary. Unfortunately, they will not make any exceptions with this. There are MANY other things to use your credits for here. It all depends on how many days you're staying. We stayed 8 nights. This gave us $300 credits to the spa, which we used all of and then had to pay cash for our couples massage. My FI and his groomsmen golfed and used their credits. Many people got the tequila that you can use your credits for. There are nice creams in the spa that you can buy with your credits. You can also do many tours. DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR ROOM WITH THE CREDITS. Chances are they will probably do that for you anyway. Some of our guests also did the lobster dinner and liked it. I'd advise you to buy a few table runners and or chair sashes. Buy some decor to put on the tables. We used our bridesmaids bouquets for the center pieces and it looked great. Also be flexible. We were supposed to have our reception outside on the Tucan Terrace and they moved us to the ballroom. I was not happy about this at first but my WC said there was a chance of rain. All of my guests really preferred being in the ballroom because there was AC! Everyone had a fabulous time!
  5. We're here ladies! Today is the big day. I can't believe it. This place is paradise. Talk to you when I'm officially Mrs. Muller!
  6. She will do airfare but it might be cheaper for you to do it on your own. Teresa was really nice but be careful and double check everything. Deanna, Teresa's assistant helped us a lot and made a ton of mistakes. First she had my FIs mother and aunt at a different wedding. Then they booked my friend on nights that NO ONE was going to be there. She wasn't even going to be there during the wedding and they tried to blame it on me. (Why would I book my friend when I wasn't even going to be there?) Deanna also never responded to many of my family and friends e-mails. Just call at least once a week to follow up. It was all good but just ask for a summary often and double check it. Also, make sure to remind everyone to get the transfers. Congrats!
  7. Hi Mrs JDH I believe he touches them up but I am not 100% sure. I know that he responds to e-mails very quickly and will help you anyway he can. He's been great so far! Shoot him an e-mail.
  8. We picked the complimentary package since you cannot change ANYTHING on the packages. There is a lot more flexibility when you do it that way. We are having a AHR. My future father in law has offered to take care of everything because I felt the same way about money. People think that just because we were having a destination wedding it was cheap! Our AHR will be on Sept 10th and will just be heavy appetizers all night. We will have a tent and dancing. Even though I didn't want it we're excited to celebrate with the 180 people that couldn't come to Mexico!
  9. Yes, and it seems as though my WC works for both. The e-mail on the attachment said contact Lily Sanchez at deco cancun. But when I contact her she works for Moon Palace. I just found it interesting. (Unless there are two Lily Sanchez's which is very possible.)
  10. Have you looked at Ismael Pacheco's photographs ? We're using him. He was $1000 and I really liked his photos. Since he was so cheap I didn't mind paying the $300 for the room. Now I can use that room for something else I guess. I was going to do the $1500 packages with smile market so it worked out better for me. Ismael gives the CD with all of the negatives and is there for 7 hours. He's done a few weddings there. They are on his website.
  11. It's nice that they gave this to you. I wish that I had gotten something like this. I feel as though I have been up in the air just going from recommendations from on here. What I found ironic was....it said to contact Lily Sanchez from Deco Cancun. That's my WC! Does she do both? Weird. Moon Complementaria from resort.pdf Private Events MPCancun.pdf
  12. Here's yesterday's drama girls, Last week we did the quick switch to the catholic ceremony. ( I know that it's probably our fault for the timing of our last minute switch ) I e-mailed both Janina and Lily about the switch. They said it shouldn't be a problem, that the time was still available. In the meantime I have gone to my local parish and set up private pre cana sessions to get all of our paperwork and pre marital work done before we get married. They have been great and working extremely hard to help us meet all of our requirements. On Sunday night I got an e-mail back from Fr. Benito answering some of my questions. YESTERDAY I e-mailed Janina again because I never got the contract for the switch. She told me that the time might not be available because they haven't heard from Fr. Benito. Something is strange! I called Moon Palace four times, everytime they went to look into it I was disconnected. I made all of my programs last week saying that it was going to take place at the Immaculate Conception Chapel. I AM PRAYING THAT THEY WILL GET BACK TO ME ASAP AND ALL WILL BE GOOD. THe problem with planning a destination wedding is the waiting for everyone via e-mail!!!

  14. Yes but the flowers that line the chapel aisle cannot be moved. (They aren't calla lilies but some other similar flower.) I was hoping to use them for my reception and she will not allow it.
  15. Okay, I"m going back to the questions about the Catholic Ceremony. I just went and met with my local parish and they asked what diocese the Priest was in. Does anyone know that? If he is and "independent contractor" practicing on his own it will not count for my church. I e-mailed the priest and never heard back from him. Does anyone know his name and or contact info???? I'm trying to call Janina now too to find the answer.
