  1. I was really worried about taking it on the plane, if they would let me or what would happen if they didnt let me take it! But i did not have any issues. It was in my carry bag with some other wedding things and it never got questioned. The only thing they ever questioned in my carryon was the unity candle. I think because of how dense it was ...
  2. The rock background is down the beach. We walked to it, he took pictures the whole way. I don't know about any must have shots- we just let him have total control. I thought the pictures were going to be awful because the sun was so bright I could not stop squinting my eyes! But somehow he worked around it and we got beautiful shots. I would just say to put total trust in him, he is amazing. I did not want to walk the whole beach in my shoes so his assistant was kind enough to carry them for me. I cannot say enough good things
  3. Hi, Thanks! You will be so happy with Sascha! He is truly amazing. We ended up with over 600 pictures that are all gorgeous! Our ceremony was about 50 minutes to an hour- so about the same as a regular mass. It seemed to go by so fast though!
  4. the classic catholic package- i dont think its an option anymore though
  5. Thank you! We got all 600+ to look through yesterday. They are amazing!! Did you end up booking him? If you did you will definitely not regret it- he is phenomenal. He captured every single moment- looking at the pictures was like reliving the day. So fabulous!

  7. I tried to copy and paste the link: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/gran-caribe-real-resort-spa-all-inclusive/reviews/7126 Otherwise it is listed at the bottom of the page in the brown box under "recent reviews" for now.
  8. We chose to do the lasso, bible and unity candle. However the priest asked us what we were doing and he said none of them are required, they are all just traditions. We had a full mass as well and it didnt add too much time to the whole ceremony- maybe an extra 5 minutes. But they are definitely not required.
  9. I finally posted my review on the GCR Vendor Review page. I put up some pics of the flowers and decorations as well. I hope this helps in your planning
  10. We had guests staying at both resorts, we stayed at the Royal. We found it was easy to spend time with both groups. The GCR group obviously couldnt come hang out with us at the royal so we just made sure to have some plans with them at the beach during the day or at the lobby bar after dinner on some of the days. We had a group of 8 staying at the GCR and they all hung out together so we didnt feel bad when we wanted to relax and stay at the Royal because we knew they were all together.
  11. It was $70 for hair and $60 for make-up. I stayed at the royal, so my hair and make-up was done at the royal. I believe there is a spa/salon at the gran caribe. I would just tell your WC your preferences when you book the appointment.
  12. It will be here before you know it! Enjoy the planning
  13. We had all our hair and makeup done at the resort and they did a fabulous job! My mom was not happy with her make up at first and they totally redid it for her- no problem! I was very impressed with their skills and professionalism.
  14. I know I am dying to see them!! I know the contract was 40 edited pictures per hour plus all unedited photos. I would assume digital, but I guess I never asked! I will let you know I paid everything on paypal, that way it was easier to not have to remember to bring anything. I paid online before we left for the trip- but then we met with him and decided to add an extra hour so I ended up using our resorts free wifi and my smart phone to make the last paypal payment. We were able to meet with him a couple days before the wedding which was very comforting for me. He said he likes to try and arrange a meeting if his schedule allows before the wedding day.
