    Thanks Kerri! I wish I wouldn't have waited so long! I love Samuel Luna, so I'm hoping he is still available! :)

        Hey Lisa...

        I tend to get pretty passionate about stuff and shooting in the Royal Gazebo has been a Royal PIA :) jk.... there are circumstances that can block our creative path a little.

        happy to "shed light" on this subject.

        One of the things we concentrate on is helping our clients fine tune or align expectations. Planning virtually is very tough, therefor its our duty to provide as much info as possible in order to keep everything on the right track. In Mexico, its so easy to go uninformed about everything. Most hotels aren't going to provide this kind of info, so we are happy to!

            For those of you looking for photogs, Mike Cantarell and his team have been wonderful to work with and come highly recommended on BDW esp for their videography, reasonable prices as well!

                    Wow Matt...fantastic advice! thank you! I didn't even think about set up, how sad is that! I wonder what else I am forgetting to think about!

                    It's 5 days before I leave and I've managed to squeeze in 2 more people to the wedding party. They booked their flights/hotel. That is not what I needed only 5 days before I leave, but it all worked out!

                    To all you ladies out there planning for 2011...be prepared it FLIES by!!! I was amazed at how fast it all came. My best advice is to try your hardest to stay calm. I know there are going to be things that frustrate you and you can't get answers for (welcome to the 2010 nightmare), but don't panic. You have time to sort those out. I feel like I am going into the Royal completely blind. There are things that I have no idea about, but I figure once I get there I will just know. It is hard to imagine something you have never seen before.

                    I promise to post lots of pictures and a very detailed review. One thing I kind of wish someone posted on here with their review, but I never saw was exactly what the wedding coordinator gives you options on. When I sit in front of Zulma and make all those difficult decisions I will keep a notebook handy so that I can make a list. Maybe that will help ease the planning stages a bit. If there is anything else you want to know tell me now or forever hold your peace..ha!

                      dear date twin :)

                      one thing that keeps me sane is knowing that there have been brides that have shown up to the resorts with nearly nothing planned. and if THEY can end up with a gorgeous wedding, i most certainly can too!

                      i'm at the gran porto at 6:00 - what time is your ceremony?
