  1. Hello brides!!! I got married in the Azul Fives Hotel in the Riviera Maya this past May 1st. We were very blessed to had found our photographers for that very important day! We picked Shenko Photography, they are a married couple of photographers, and they are great people to work with, they were on time, prepared and very respectful with what we wanted for that day and for our schedules. They are very creative and artistic and every single person that saw our wedding pictures was so amazed by them and the moments captured that they actually could imagine every detail of the event. We also had out trash the dress session the next day and have a wonderful time. It's worth every single penny. Here I can share some of the pictures and also the link to their blog. http://www.shenkophoto.com/blog/incredibly-emotional-wedding-at-azul-fives/
  2. Hello Brides!! Congratulations to each and every single one of you!!! I recently got married on May 1st in Playa del Carmen, so I wanted to share with you the best Dj and Photography Brands that I got for my perfect Day! If you don't have any idea or recommendation for these two, I am glad to share my experience now that I finally got the chance to meet and work with them. For the photos I got in touch with Shenko Photography, www.shenkophoto.com, a married couple that are real real artists. Their pictures took my breath away, and they uploaded a blog on their webpage for a sneak peek of my wedding day photos! They made us a photoshoot one day before the Wedding, so we could meet each other in person and get to know each other working with the camera, which really helped for the big day so we could feel more comfortable. Here is the blog if you want to take a look! http://www.shenkopho...-at-azul-fives/ I 100% recommend these people! Also because I think that wedding pictures are the best and only memory you got from that day, everything happens so quickly that I didn't even remember some details until I see the pictures! For the music, I took a friend's recommendation and I love it ! Dj. Rickalvin from Fuzion Musical Ricardo Trujillo Duran Entertainment Manager 9981604069 · dj.rickalvin@hotmail.com He was really great! He also works with his wife and they were really punctual and very well organized, also got great prices and packages! The music was really good and he was really interested to know our choices and what we liked and what we didn't like, so he did the best work! I really hope to help you guys and don't hesitate to ask me whatever you need! Best Regards!

I think I got lucky, I was working with a wedding coordinator at the Azul Fives, but he went away to another job, so the new coordinators didn't know what we had negotiate or not, so we kind of took advantage of the situation, but everything we said was totally true! Actually I am really disappointed on the hotel's organization and logistics, but in the end everything went great and everything was absolutely perfect!
  7. Hello!! Yes I did!! I paid $150 for photographers, $100 for the DJ and my wedding planner arranged not paying for her even though they also brought the flowers.

    4 Days Til My Wedding!

    Hello brides!! I'm 4 days away for my BIG DAY ! I wanted to share my experience in this wild ride planning the perfect wedding! I am not that nervous I think, because I trusted very professional people for that special day. My experience with the DJ has been really great! I picked Dj. Rickalvin: And he has been great through all this process, he is very well organized and very flexible. He always answers my emails quickly and exactly with the solution or answer I need to any of my doubts or questions. We told him the music we liked and what we didn't like, so this way he knows a little bit more about us and what we expect for the wedding day! I found this Dj through a friend of mine that got married on Cancun last summer, and every single person told me they had lots of fun and everyone recommended the dj a lot. Another vendor that has been in touch with all throughout this whole time are the photographers: www.shenkophoto.com As I told you before, this is a married couple that is dedicated only to taking pictures around the world. We've been communicating for more than 8 months now, and I think we now seem to now each other even if we haven't met in person. Last month we arranged a Skype session and that was the first time we saw each other, other than in photos. We talked a lot about the wedding day, the pictures we would like for that day and with who, etc. They also seem to be really interested in small details about that day, like for example flowers, centerpieces and other decoration details that we picked. Also they are really organized, and helped us make an itinerary for family pictures so that we don't lose any time and we have all the people we want on the pictures. In 2 days we are meeting for a casual session so that we know each other in front of the camera and in that way, I think, it will be easier to communicate on the wedding day for the things we want, and can or can't do. My fiancé always laughs at me because I am a very bubbly person and I don't have shame of anything, but when you put a camera in front of me, everything changes!!! I just don't know what to do it's such a dumb thing! So wish me luck!!! When I come back from my honeymoon I'll tell you more details about everything =)

    Do I Have To Have A Wedding Program?

    Hello brides!! I made my own programs, and I'm planning to put them on each room for our guests to know when to be ready. I also put a phrase in the front (that I got from google oopsy!) to thank everyone for making the effort to be there with us. In our case, we are having a Welcome Dinner a day before the wedding, and also I wanted to specify the different locations we are having for the ceremony, cocktail and reception. I think that if you are having every ceremony and reception party in the same location, then you don't really need the programs. I attached my itineraries here.
  14. @@snswedding2016 Hello !!! I'm from Mexico and I'm marrying this next May 1st. I really really think the guys at the hotel abuse the fact that you guys aren't here to negotiate or to look for other options and that's getting on my last nerve. To answer your question about the rooms blocking, we also made that deal and we didn't regret it because they all finished very very soon, and now the people that didn't make their reservations on time are rushing and there are no more rooms available for the date. And for example, if you blocked 30 rooms, your guests can start making the reservations without paying them, only by giving a credit card in guarantee and they pay as soon as they get to the hotel. So that payment you make for the blocking, the hotel keeps like an advanced payment for the actual wedding, I'm I making myself clear? haha if you have questions you can ask. In my case, we first make like an agreement for the wedding details directly with the wedding coordinator at Azul Fives, it was an Excel sheet and we filled it in with locations, timing, details etcetera. Then, the excel calculates approximately how much will my wedding cost, so the money we paid for the blocking after everyone made their room reservations is transferred to the wedding total. Hope it helps!!
  15. They do allow them!! I'm not using any in-house vendors, the thing is, my wedding coordinator inside the hotel stopped working there this past february so I can't tell you who to speak to. But you may ask, and I don't mind you mentioning my wedding!! Gerardo Sanchez & Andrea Berretta, tell them you're my friend and I told you hahaha good luck!!! I'm getting so nervous, we are only 2 months away from the wedding!! can't wait to tell you how it was!!!!
