YouTube - Kirsten and Aaron's Wedding Video
Swankster...first off the hop you looked beautiful!! Your make-up turned out amazing!! I'm so glad to hear that everything went off without a hitch! All that sense of panic for nothing! Also glad to hear that the Gran Tortuga was opened when you went! Can't wait until you post your review! I'm busting with questions but I'll wait a bit before overwhelming ya! :o)
On a separate note I have to tell you how awesome Jazmin has been! I sent her an email recently and today she called me!!! Because she is going on vacation and didn't have the time to reply via email! She was amazing!
The video is very cool. I'm so glad that we decided to go with DJ Bijan! Looking and yours and swongs pictures makes me wish I was getting married next week!

First of all the guests LOVED the OOT bags... I am so glad we did them. The things that were used the most were the bags themselves (the guests brought them EVERYWHERE!), the mugs - again EVERYONE used them all the time - a huge hit! The towels were also used by everyone since we noticed that if we lost any of the pool towels the resort supplied there was a $50 fee, other things that were used: tylenol, immodium/tums/pepto, bandaids, keycard/tip holder - even though the resort had actual metal keys with lanyard - most attached the pouch without the wrist coil to the lanyard. some things that I did not see get used were: sudoku books, cards, hand sanitizer (every restaurant had this at the entrance), drink mixes (the packets you pour into a bottle of water), spanish for dummies and water proof containers. Some things that some people used but not all: water cameras and off wipes. I have pics of our bags/contents... I'll post those in the OOT bag thread soon.

Thank you so much!! Yes, Jazmin is awesome... I got frustrated with her when she would take weeks to respond to emails but after being there and actually seeing just how busy she is and how hard she works for each bride I have a new respect for her! The day of our meeting I also saw her (and her trainee Mara) meet with 3 other brides. That does not include any weddings that she might have had that day. She is so on top of things - things that I didn't see her write down and I thought she'd forget - nope - she was spot on with everything. And Mara, who is new, was equally great!

I know exactly how you are feeling! I was the same way before I left! With that said - I have started my review (i'm writing it in word and then plan to copy/paste once it's done) I also want to add pictures so as soon as I get all that ready I'll post!

In the meantime if anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to PM me! I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have... so if you'd rather not wait for my review - no worries :)

I know Tlseege! Hubby is already talking about going back there next April for our first anniversary!

 

Great pics at your AHR Wendy! If it was possible, you look MORE amazing than when we met at the Premier Lobby on your wedding day!

 

Congrats to all the recent wives of GBP and newly engaged and planning brides! You've picked one of the best resorts out there!!!

I've probably asked you this question before so apologies if I have.....did you use the resort photographer? If so how did you find them?
