I am a bit worried about the time that the judge confirmed - 6:30pm. I am afraid that this will be late and we will be too dark for pictures.

    I have tried to search online what time the sunsets in Punta Cana in November and even though I have been to Puerto Plata a few times, I can't really remember.

    Anyone have any ideas if it will be dark at this time or if there is a way to have the ceremony earlier - say 4pm. I tried to email the MC (Deyanira) and she hasn't responded to any of my questions yet. She has only responded when I sent her my ID, or my credit card and authorization letter so far.

    Any advice would be great!!!

    I am starting to feel the pressure of starting to plan things a bit!!!

    Welcome!!!! our date is December 1st. 2010 and we were told by our WC, Carolina, that the sunset is at 5:30PM. during that time.

        Would you possibly be able to send me some of bourdeauxterrace my email is
        I thought things were busy BEFORE the wedding...boy was I wrong!! Hahaha...I think I just chose to ignore them because the wedding took priority hehehe...back to reality :-/

        I'm working on my review, but in the mean time, some of our photos have been blogged!!! Check out these awesome shots from Melissa Green!!! Melissa Green Photography | Utah Wedding Photography, Boudoir and Modern Photojournalist

        I was lucky enough to have Melissa and Summer photograph our wedding and it was THE BEST decision I could have made. The only things I got to take away are my husband, my memories and my photos. That's a LOT to trust with anyone and we couldn't have chosen a better team to work with. I'll write more in my review!! I promise!!

        Nat, as you can see from the pics if you get a chance to look at them, we got married in the gazebo. I was SUPER happy with that choice. The beach is nice, but I like the scenery and greenery around the gazebo more. I didn't want the audience that a beach wedding brings. We still had some onlookers, but not nearly as many as if it was on the beach.

        I took lots of pictures of Bordeaux terrace because that's where we were going to have our "dessert hour" with the fire dancers. When Sharron checked with the schedule of the fire dancers, they said "no way" to Bordeaux because of the wooden pergola structure. It's definitely got to be my favorite view, but we had to do Himitsu due to the fire hazard. I have family photos if you'd like me to send you some. It's the perfect place for lanterns and you can put tons of them up if you'd like!

          hey Chris! I have a question for you :) You had the caribbean trio... what did you think of them? Is it worth the extra money? They are one of the things that my FI and I banter back and forth about... lol

            I loved the Caribbean Trio, but there are some definite pros and cons to having them. This was the set up:

            They played while our guests were waiting at the gazebo (about 20 minutes)
            Then they walked back to the lobby where I was waiting and played (the guests probably couldn't hear them at this point) while the wedding party walked in. Watching the video, you can't hear them, but that may have just been the video camera. We're probably going to edit it to have different music while they walk down, or cut and loop the music that you can hear and have it play in the backround.
            Then, when it was my turn to start walking with my dad, they were about 4-5 steps behind me and followed me the whole way while playing. I was having a hard time not crying...it was really nice!!!!
            They were quite during the 10 minute ceremony (we didn't do any sand or anything, just a straight up standard script) and then played again while we walked off and did some quick pictures.
            I knew I wasn't going to get the full HOUR that I paid for, but since we weren't doing a private reception, I didn't care. I wanted them for their destination wedding feel and I certainly got that!!
            The surprise came during our dinner when they showed up and played a few more songs for us (and the other people in the restaurant)!! I was super happy about that!! Totally unexpected...

            So all in all, they played for about 45 minutes...I think everyone enjoyed them, but I KNOW that my husband and I certainly did! I think it was worth it, not only because it was our only source of musical entertainment besides the music from the fire dancers, but because it was definitely a perfect fit for the location and the feel!!

              well that is good to know!! We are doing a sand ceremony, and having the champagne toast on the beach afterward... for us, the idea is to have them there for that as well as just before the ceremony since we are using La Barcaza for our reception!
