    Forgot a few others - invites were from The Aerialist Press

    I PROMISE to write a very detailed review soon.  In the meantime, I thought I'd post a link to a "sneak peek" slide show http://harris.brookeboling.com/ from our photographer - the incredibly talented Brooke Boling.  http://brookeboling.com/  She is based out of Nashville, TN, but will travel and is quite reasonable.  We LOVED her!  Hope you enjoy the pics!  Flowers by Planner1Events - Gabi is AWESOME!  The flowers were EXACTLY as I had requested/thought they would be.  http://www.planner1events.com/  Ceremony performed by Pam from http://www.beautyweddings.com/.  She did a fantastic job, her words were very touching, and she had everyone in tears!  DJ was Ivan from DJ Doremixx.  http://www.xcancun.c...emixx/home.html  FABULOUS!!!!!!!!  We cannot say enough good things about him.  (There is a fun pic in the slide show of our guests dancing w/some of the many props he provided!)   Wedding cake was done by Ceiba's pastry chef - delicious!!!  And Paola, Diana, and the staff at Ceiba were beyond excellent - our guests are still emailing us and saying what a fantastic time they had and how impressed they were with the entire Ceiba wedding experience.  It was PERFECT!  (I want to do it all over again!)

     

    (More detailed review soon... :) )

      Tweets your pictures are beautiful!  You had a lovely wedding and you made a beautiful bride.  The song "I Loved Her First" was a favorite of my dad's and it made him think of me and when he would walk me down the aisle.  He died March 19th of this year so he won't be able to do that.  I had been thinking about that song but could not remember the name of it.  I am so grateful to have found that song.  Thank you!

        Hey ladies! I'm getting married at Ceiba in February. For the brides who have already had their weddings there, I'm wondering where you got your hair done. Did you have Ceiba's onsite salon do it? If so, were you happy with the results? If you went some place else, any good recommendations? Thanks!

          Brenners - I am very sorry to hear about your dad.  He may not physically be at your wedding, but he will be in every other sense!  The version of "I Loved Her First" on my slide show was a recording from the songwriter, Elliot Park.  (I LOVE him!)  I don't think that version is available.  However, Heartland recorded the song and that is likely the version you and your dad heard on the radio.  It will be a very special moment for you when that is played at your wedding.  I wish you nothing but the best!

            My mom and sister are stylists and did the hair for us.  I think another Ceiba bride had stylists come from Cancun.  Paola will be able to give you recommendations.  As an FYI - it is windy, warm, and humid there.  February will be a little better than beginning of April, but there is still a lot of wind.  So, keep that in mind on how you want your hair.  I was planning on doing my down, and then we decided to pull half of it back for picture purposes (it would have been everywhere with the wind if it was all down).

                  Hi Ladies, Sorry I haven't posted.  My wedding was April 16th and I can't begin to describe how amazing it was from start to finish.  We arrived on Monday prior to our wedding and left the following Tuesday.  We had family or friends with us every day we were there but that was fine to us.  Eight straight days of pure sunshine. Ceiba staff exceeded any epectations I had.  To have everyone know your name and your guests was incredible.  They treated us like king and queen! Our friends and family raved about how wonderful everything was and have requested to have a reunion there again.  HAHA I have not written any reviews yet but I will eventually. Theresa - thanks for sharing your pictures.  Amazing.  You look so calm!  Your husband's wedding band is so similar to my hubby's.  Loved your flowers!  I used a photographer that a former Ceiba bride had used.  He flew from Williamsburg VA.  Awesome - took 4 days of picutres (snorkeling, hanging out photos at the pool, bbq, wedding, a photo shoot of me and hubby in the water) BUT right before I left I read a bad reviews stating he takes forever to get pictures back.  We emailed him on April 23rd and have yet to hear back from him.  BUT, his father passed away on April 20th only two days after he returned from my wedding.  I am trying to be calm about not hearing from him but a person who wrote a bad review on Yelp emailed me and told me it took one whole year to get their wedding pictures.  Ok enough rambling about that. Brenners - so sorry to hear about your father. I am sure he will be watching over you on your big day. MarisKash - I used Melissa V. Perry for hair and make-up.  She came to Ceiba and did a trial for about 3 hours a few days before my wedding.  SUPER sweet and easy to work with.  I ended up crying during my trial b/c I didn't feel like I looked like myself but wedding day came and I felt like a million bucks!!!!!!  I will try to post some pictures that my friends and family have sent.  She is on this forum so you can shoot her an email. Those of you who are debating on Ceiba...don't debate...do it!  We went over our budget by a lot (mainly b/c I was clueless on prices) but it was worth every penny and then some!

                    Thanks again for everything Gabi!  The flowers were incredible!  You can post the link on FB.  I'll email you some pictures of the set-up as well.  I will also post a more detailed review soon, including one under event planners/florists.  You exceeded our expectations!

                      CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am soooooo glad to hear everything went so well.  Ceiba really is an incredible and special place! 

                       

                      Good luck with your photographer.  Hopefully he will get back to you after things calm down with his family.  I am sure your friends/family have some great shots too!  I am looking forward to seeing pics! 

                       

                      I was very calm, actually.  Everyone at Ceiba, and all of our vendors, just took care of everything - so I had nothing to stress over! :)
