Diego is one of the Arrecife's photographers!

 

We had 140 guests...so 15 tables and lots of flower arrangements, decor, etc. I hired Melissa Parry (MVP) for hair and make-up which started at 7 am sharp...

Our pictures began at 1 (groom/bride first look) at La Hacienda and then at the beach (with a rainbow)!, followed by a Ketubah signing (jewish wedding tradition) under a large palapa located near our villa and the ceremony location, then it poured while everyone was seated and waiting for our processional at 3:30....then they dried off the chairs and the ceremony at the Akumal hammock location started around 4:15 pm, followed by a champagne toast at the ceremony site, then cocktail hour at Bar El Mar on the beach with Mariachi band, ice luge, and appetizers; followed by our dinner and dancing reception at the Main Akumal Pool from 6:45-9:45 with DJ Bijan...IT RAINED around 9:30 again, and lots of guests just jumped in the pool....then we went inside to Bar Pakal and had the cake and brought our extra liquor to the bar with us....then went to the club. AMAZING AND FUN!

I've been told by the Tulum WC - that you need your music on a CD for the ceremony and for the reception - you can bring your iPod for the DJ to use if you have specific music you want played

I took a CD... We didn't need any songs for the guests while they were waiting because they all met at the snack bar then the WC took them to the site 5 min before it started. We had Soul sista by train for my wedding party to walk down to, Im yours by jason mraz for me to walk down to, Marry you by bruno mars for signing (we did legal so there was a lot of singing, if this is what your doing then have 2 songs for signing) then Good life by OneRepublic as our recessional. it worked out awesome, and it goes sooo well with our video!

Well guys... we leave on Sunday, so I probably won't be back on here before we head down!!  I can't believe after the months of waiting the time is almost here!  Our actualy wedding is a week today, and I have a fiance who is stressing about weather because he saw some rain in the forecast.  Keep your fingers crossed for good weather!

 

We finally finalized out music last night, and I couldn't be happier with it - it's all meaningful to us, and most of it is unknown songs found on youtube!

 

Happy planning, and I promise a detailed review upon our return!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
