    hello girls,
    I haven't been on here lately but just spent all day catching up on your posts. As always so much great info!! We decided to move our May 15th wedding to Oct just b/c people were freaking out BUT that leaves us w/out a photographer as the one we were initially going to use can't make it in Oct. HELP!!!! Del Sol & Elizabeth Medina are booked. Who else is there I could call that you girls could recommend? Does anybody know how MexicanWeddingPhotos (Paradisus's on-site photographer) are I wasn't all that impressed w/ their web-site compared to all the others.

    Help!!!!!

      Hello,
      You should check out Ajua weddings! They have a ton of different music/entertainment options at prices alot more reasonable then the Paradisus even with the 300 outside vendor fee tacked on.
      Just a thought

        Thanks cac...I contacted them and they told me they do not provide their services, unless you are using them as your wedding co-ordinator. : (

        Wish I could help you with the photog...but I think I am bringing mine down from here. Good luck! I'm sure someone will be able to help you out.

          That's bizarre they told you that b/c they are providing me w/ my mariachi's & my violinist? Maybe it was my bad and I misunderstood what you were looking for. Sorry

              Cac...wish I could help...I'm bringing my photogs from here but maybe one of the other girls can help you.

              SMB..I wanted fire dancers also but it seems like we can't get them at the Paradisus...let us know if you find some other performance group. I would love to provide something like that four our guests.

              Lauren....YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!! SO SO SO excited for you! That is fantastic news. It sounds like things may be returning to normal at least normalish!!

                I guess planning a wedding wasn't enough on my plate, FH and I put on offer in on a house last night and it was accepted! Feeling such a range of emotions, from pure excitement, to 2nd guessing myself, to nausea! My FMIL's 1st words to FH were that she thinks we overpaid and rushed into it (ummm...what comparables did you look at?). FH was really upset, which upset me. Even if those are your thoughts, keep them to yourself and congratulate us. Grrrr!!!

                Sarah, I'll let you know what I find out about some type of performance (especially since we are both named Sarah!). I think it would be such a nice surprise for everyone.

                  And Lauren, such great news about the restaurants! I can't believe you only have 18 days left. So crazy!

                    Great news Lauren! Getting really excited for you!

                    SMB&CRZ - we must be wedding/life twins! We are in Toronto as well and closed on our new home 3 weeks before we left for the wedding (with some of the same comments about price etc!!!!)

                    Don't worry - it will be busy but you will get through it! Where abouts did you guys buy? Maybe we will be neighbours!

                      We bought in Stouffville. It's a really fast closing...July 31st. It should be interesting trying to get everything organized, and scary, because I've only ever lived in Pickering. New adventures I guess!
