Their pictures are...good...just not what I was hoping for. I didn't realize how important the photography was going to be until just recently, and especially now that I almost "lost" the opportunity.
I spoke with Micaela yesterday, and I think they are going to allow us to purchase two "offsite" passes, at the fixed price (also new) of $100 usd each for our photographers, and then they will be allowed on the premises as members of our wedding party. I would like to stress however, that if this is what they are able to do for us...they may not necessarily be able to do that for you. I'm glad I didn't listen to those people who said I was planning things way too early, because had we waited just a few more weeks...the new prices would have been in effect and the "No Outside Vendor" policy (which, unless you've inquired, has apparently been in effect since just after Heidi booked!! - however long ago that was) would not be flexible.
I think things will work out...and ultimately, I'll pay what I have to to make the wedding go off without a hitch...it just...hurts the wallet a bit! But to her credit, Micaela seems like she will try to go above and beyond on anything she can to calm a bride down...so to me, that is invaluable.
Anyways...thanks for calming me down yesterday...even if not directly!!
Now, I just hope we can juggle our wedding date...still haven't heard about that yet...
