    Hi Nikki, thank you!  It was so much fun, I wish we could do it all over again!  He he.  The pink colored wine is actually the resort's "fruit cocktail" that is included to toast with after the ceremony.  It is extra for champagne.  It tasted pretty good!

    Your wedding photos look beautiful! Congratulations! We have the same wedding colors (as do 80% of the brides! lol) and I noticed in one of the photos that you have a pink colored sparkling wine. what did you put in the wine to make it this color? did you bring something with you, so did the resort do it?

    Thanks

    Nikki

      Hello brides old and new! It's been awhile since I've posted.. sorry!

       

      Anyway, I had some trouble printing my wedding photos from Arrecife due to copywright. I remember asking Nestor about this and he assured me there wouldn't be a problem but I should've known better... all the places I print at are very uptight about printing professional photos without a release. Anyway, after several emails back and forth I finally received this release form directly from Arrecife. Wanted to post for any of you who might need it. If it's already been posted sorry for the repost!

       

      I hope everyone is doing well! Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do!

        I know everyone, including myself, would most likely turn their nose when it comes to using the photographer provided by the resort but I saw pictures of a wedding on the Akumal side where the bride had posted the few pictures part of her package and they were VERY GOOD and she had regretted not going with this fellow.

         

        I saw this awhile back and silly me, I didn't write down the name of the photographer

        One of the pictures were from a far view in the trees looking out unto the wedding site while guests were arriving

         

        anyone recall the name by chance? I realize I may be taking a shot in the dark but I can't say I tried?

          Hi AngieEH: The resort photographers have a Facebook account "Arrecife Studio Mexico". http://www.facebook....141628232524938    

          The two resort photographers are Nestor and Juan.  You can see examples of photos they took on facebook.

           

          Swankster:  Thanks!  I didn't even think of that.  I won't be able to download until I get to 150 posts.  But I should eventually get there and I'll save the link.

          Christi

                Nestor did our photos, here is a link to our Snapfish account, the password is "mexico2010" if you need it.  He did an amazing job, and I would recommend him to future Bahia brides :)

                    Oopps, nevermind- I read that your ceremony was at 4! Do they offer to do bride/groom and family pictures prior to the ceremony???

                      I had Nestor as well and he was amazing. I think you can request someone but its not 100% guaranteed depending on their schedule. If you are just getting the photos included in the wedding package I think that it's just photos of the ceremony.

                      I dont think they take the time to do photos afterwards with family and what not since its only 10 or so photos you are getting. I could be wrong though not quite sure because we booked the basic package $540USD which included 36 photos plus the 10 in our package. I definetly recommend this if you can afford it. Friends and family took a ton of photos but the photos they take are really really good quality and get really romantic and neat shots.  We ended up buying more for a total of 87 photos since there were so many nice ones to choose from.
