  1. Hello! We decided to have our cocktail hour at 3, ceremony at 4, reception at 4:30/5. We will make sure to have all of our photos done before 3pm so I think we will be fine (fingers crossed). Thank you to everyone!
  2. Hello! So after doing some thinking and speaking with Brenda, our offsite planner (I call het when I need an immediate answer as emails take a long time sometimes), we have decided to stick with the Caribbean terrace but move everything to an hour earlier. This way we'll have some beautiful photos in the light and will have a view even if it's only for an hour. Also, for those that are thinking to decorate the pool at the grand terrace, Brenda informed me that it is possible as the pool closes to the public at 6pm. However, she stated, that the decorations will likely not be very noticeable as the pool is not immediately next to the tables or dance floor. @@smilenstacy and @@LydiaButterfly could you please email me your photos. I'd love to see how everything turned out! @@shan0487 we are having our ceremony on the vena do terrace. Can I see your photos from the rehearsal dinner? By the way- is Moon still using Latin Asia for flowers? Is there anyone else?
  3. Hello! This is a question for those that have seen the sunset in Cancun. We are getting married in December, and the ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5pm (cocktail hour is 4-5). According to various sources, we have been notified that the sun should set at around 5-5:15pm then. Additionally, we were told that when the sun sets in Cancun, it's not a gradual scenic event, but rather a sudden change in the color of the sky. I am wondering what color the sky would be at sunset. Does it get pitch black right away or does the sky gradually get dark but still gives enough light to see the surroundings for a little while. I am thinking to move the ceremony time to 4pm instead of 5 (cocktail hour 3-4), but if I do this then I would not be able to have fireworks immediately following the ceremony as I had initially planned. So it's a tough decision. On the other hand though, if we have the ceremony when it is still light out the pictures may come out a bit nicer and the guests could enjoy the rooftop view from the reception for a short period of time (whereas if we go up there after 5:30 as we are currently scheduled, if the sky is totally black then, they will not see the view at all). Please advise. Thank you in advance =)
  4. @shawn0487 where did you have your reception? What are your thoughts on having it on the Caribbean Terrace when it is dark? Is it still worth it? Would anything show? Confused bride over here =( Tia!
  5. Thank you! I am waiting on my wedding planner to write back to me about whether I can decorate the pool. Will be awaiting her response (sometimes it takes a while).
  6. My wedding is in December. When was yours? We were told that it gets dark by 5pm then. Do you know if this is true? Thanks!
  7. Thanks for the reply! Here is the thing though, we are getting married after sundown (ceremony begins at 5 and reception at 5:30), therefore I'm afraid that the beautiful view from the Caribbean terrace will not show. Can anyone advise on this? Thanks!
  8. Hello! I haven't been on here in a very long time as I have put the wedding planning on hold. I am now starting to continue planning and am realizing that I am not set on anything! We have already reserved the Caribbean Terrace (rooftop) for the reception, but now I am beginning to contemplate moving the reception to the Grand Terrace (by the pool) so that I can decorate the pool with floating candles and Chinese lanterns. I am looking for your opinions and advice on this. It would be greatly appreciated! Also, if you can share photos that would be great. Thank you in advance!!!

  10. Hi @@NJBride2014, Thank you for that info. I will be emailing my wedding coordinator tomorrow to see if I can negotiate the same thing as you for Del Sol... it's worth a try. I heard that paying for the photographer's night is tricky since the hotels know their local photographers and will recognize that they came for work rather than as guests, but I may be thinking too much into this. I"ll have to see. I will post an update about what happens with Del Sol. Thanks!
  11. @@NJBride2014 Thank you very much! Yes, I also find that a bit strange.. How did you work out the 2 day passes instead of the vendor's fee? I would like to do this as well! Also, were you only able to negotiate this for Del Sol or any other outside photographers?
  12. Hi @@NJBride2014, Just emailed you his package list. I have not seen his videos yet, and am also reluctant for the same reason. Where are you getting married? I am having a hard time choosing photographer and videographer. I am getting married at Moon Palace and they have only a few preferred vendors. Carlos Pasten is one of them, and I like the fact that he does both photography and videography. The only other one that offers both is Sarani but she is a bit expensive.. not sure what I am going to do yet. If he posts a demo will you please let me know?
  13. Hi @@NJBride2014, Sorry for the late reply! If you still need this, please send me your email address and I will forward you what I have.
  14. Hello everyone, I am a Moon Palace bride looking to select a photographer and videographer for our wedding. Has anyone used or seen Carlos Pasten's work? Any reviews would be greatly appreciated. I am not clear on whether he does both photography and videography. Also, if there is anyone else that you recommend for videography that would be great. Thanks in advance!
