    Ahh yes...i knew there would be questions, as for pictures well when we post them all on our site I will put a link up for it because we have about a 1000 photos and so it might be easier just to have them on a website instead! As for how everything went...it was great, Our wedding party went over on the 11:30 boat all together and so we hung out for a bit together and then the guys went out swimming and to hang out on the dock and then us girls just hung out in the bridal suite relaxing and getting ready! They have a lunch buffet ready for you when you arrive which we enjoyed first before anything and then just had a very relaxing day until the wedding! I would definitely reccommend going to Las Caletas before the ceremony for a site inspection too because it definitely put any worries we had to rest being able to see it all! Honestly I think the only thing we would have changed would have been probably staying longer but since we had younger kids with us we left at 10:30 and just continued on partying on the boat ride and then at the hotel but that was still tons of fun! It was such an amazing day and turned out to be very relaxing which all of us really enjoyed since I have seen some very stressful brides on their wedding day...but I also found it pretty emotional (as a bride you don't get to see the area all set up until you are walking down the steps so it really takes your breath away...i know I had to stop for a bit to get my composure back!) Oh and as for the ceremony area that was how it looked...we did pay for the bamboo chuppa though since my hubbie absolutely loves bamboo but other than that, this was how it looked (we kinda stayed pretty minimal with the decorations!, but it still took our breath away!) Anyways I should get back to work here but I just wanted to post a little something for ya!

      Thanks, Ali! I can't wait to see the rest of the pics. I'll try to be patient!

      If you hadn't paid for the bamboo chuppa, what would it have looked like? I'd like to do as little as possible as well, I am just trying to get an idea of what it would look like if I did nothing! If you have any pics of your dinner table, I'd love to see those too. Or I can wait for the link to all of the pics - no problem. Thanks again!

        Wow, Ali! Your pics look amazing!!!!, I can't wait to see the rest once you've got them up on your site...
        We are not having anything extra (ie: the Bamboo chuppa) so I'm curious to know what the decorations will look like as well...if anyone knows and could let us know, that would be great!!!!
        Thanks again for posting a few teaser pics! Looking forward to seeing more when you've got time!!!!

                  haha - too funny Ann! I feel the same way - I haven't seen any photos of weddings done at Caletas, other than the Vallarta Adventures website, and the one other link from this message board - so it is very exciting!

                      Kay, I can try and answer a few of the questions but I might not be able to get to them all! Umm without the bamboo chuppa, I think they did have a palm arch that was provided (now thats just what i think, since Jeff and I pretty much chose the bamboo right away we didn't really think about other options) As for the cake, well it came from Las Caletas, we ordered it with our package. Nicole gave us a few options for it and then we just sent her a picture of what we would have liked it to look like and it turned out great! I am still working on posting more of the pictures on to a ewedding website so once there are more up there then I will supply a link for it! A lot of our picture are night-time shots because Jeff and I didn't want to see each other before the ceremony so we chose to have all our pictures down after the ceremony, but that was just our personal choice! We figured if we didn't like the night time ones then we would just do daytime shots the next day, but we thouroughly enjoyed the night-time ones! Anyways I have to get going....I am getting very excited to get our video back from there too (which should be arriving in about 2 weeks) so it will be more to look at! Ahh I just can't get enough!!!! Take Care!
