    And Chicago thanks for posting the link to Jorge's photos. You are a beautiful bride!! And I love the photo of you and your hubby playfully embracing on the beach - it's just so candid and intimate but in a playful way - love it.

      Chule,

       

      You can actually just talk to Jorge and figure out a deal. What we initially wanted was to get 100 pictures that we would choose from hundreds that he would take. We altered his package to where we would only print 50 pictures. He does print them if that is what you would like.

      In the end when we saw all 429 pictures...we just could not narrow it down to 100. We bought all 429 and decided to print them ourselves. You can always print those pictures yourself just as he would.

      Of course the deal we made was also implementing a videographer in the price.

      It was pretty much custom. Regardless, we got a very good deal considering the quality of his work and that we would pay double that here in Chicago.

        Jerzy: LMAO!!!!!!!! you sound like me... I usually wake up around 12-1pm back home and 10-11 on vacation (don't want to miss all the sun and food) and he gave us 9am. I was very nervous I'd look like crap but I called it an early night the night before the shoot. honestly it takes 30-45 mins and then you can go back and take a nap. But do wake up an hour early to get your make-up put on. I suggest just wearing your hair lose and down.. it'll get messed up anyways!! :)

          Hey Girls! We are still down here in the DR, and having a blast! Will post a full review when we finally get back home. I have had no issues and the wedding adn Carolina by far exceeded ALL of my expectations! My guests loved the GP Bavaro, and many of them want to come back sometime!!!

           

          Off to drink some more....


          Counting down to January 17th in Punta Cana!

            Thank you so much for all of this great information. I have been customizing the package with him but was just a bit concerned about the printed photos. He said that he would give me 50 proofs with a CD which I wasn't too sure of, but now...I think it will work being that I can print those pictures anywhere I wish. I mean I don't want to have extra photos just sitting in a box either ;)

              I am hoping he will keep the later time (like 5pm) because he scheduled the day after our wedding so I know we will be up late on our wedding night celebrating with everyone. Getting up early for photos the next day just isn't going to work lol! Thanks for the tips... I am thinking hair down with simple make up. We don't have enough money to do actual wedding ceremony photos so this will be our "wedding" photos. I am hoping to do some by the beach, but saw someone do pics jumping into the pool which looked awesome! I prefer the beach but if there's time, I'd like both. Did you meet with HDC beforehand, or did you just decide everything once your photography day came? I know we are getting a great deal on price so whatever he does will work for us! Our budget is controlling everything right now unfortunately.

                Tracy - I know I already told you that you are of course welcome to come see mine. And we really should try and get together for a drink and meet in person while there...I know for sure that the Sunday night (April 10) my entire group basically plans to take over Hemmingways (it`ll be our first night there as a whole group AND our MOH/BMs/GMs plan to do a little bachelor/bachelorette thing for us so sure to be rowdy one!) so if you're looking for something to do that night, there's where you'll likely find me :)

                  Carribeanlover: our reception is suppose to be at 4pm and we are thinking the ceremony will be at the gazebo by the beach. Is that where you had you ceremony? I'm getting so excited but still so much to do!

                    I'm REALLY confused about the rooms now :(  Should I have not had guest book in the RST?  We have a Romance Suite booked.  I wish I could do a site visit, but I just don't think it's going to be possible.  I'm extremely stressed about this now.  We have 40 guests coming so I know that we probably end up with some in 'older" rooms, but I just wish I could do the room assignments based on the people I know are easy going and the ones who are picky!  Ugh!   Type A coming out...

                     

                    @Chicago ...were those real touch flowers?  You looked beautiful!

                      Yes, my flowers were real touch. I got them from wedideas.com
