    Thank you so much for all that information! and your pictures are just beautiful!

     

    My fiance and I have stayed in the resort before and think it would be perfect for a wedding - we are planning November 2011 - quick question (sorry if its already been asked) was this an all inclusive package? or did you have to pay fees for the wedding package you had?  

     

    Thanks!~

        I second what CanadianKim said.  We brought our own photographer from home, so Nestor just took photos of our ceremony.  But I am pretty sure you can pay extra and have him before the ceremony to take photos while you and your groom get ready, the ceremony, after to do family and group shots, etc.  Arrecife Studio Mexico has a Facebook page if you want to contact them, and see more photos they have done :)

            We did, and it was SO yummy!  Very fresh and moist!  Here is a pic (don't mind our Simpson's wedding cake topper, my husband is a bit obsessed) he he.

              Thanks so much!

               

              does the dinner vary on the amount of people? That sounds amazing! :) I can't wait!

               

              Did you use a travel agent? i'm in Alberta - and having a hard time finding someone that specilizes in it that isn't going to charge an arm and leg! :) thanks!

                I don't think it matters how many people you have for the dinner.  But from what I understand, whatever side of the resort you get married at (Tulum, Akumal or Coba), that is where you have to have your dinner.  We had ours at the Gran Tortuga.

                 

                We did use a travel agent, she is a friend of ours though, so we were lucky.  I had a tough time finding one in the beginning too...no one would call me back, or they would and would listen to our budget, but then would suggest resorts that were way out of our budget!  Our travel agent didn't specialize in weddings, so maybe just try going to a regular travel agent and seeing if she can do a group booking for you.  We booked through Sunquest, and our flights were through West Jet...

                      You have to pay for the wedding package as well. I have the package prices and details for the legal ceremony options if you would like me to send that to you let me know.

                       

                      We just used a travel agent from Marlin travel and booked a group. She was great. You just get a quote and send it out to everyone and then they have a certain amount of time to book where the rate is valid(usually a two week time frame) and then they just contact the agent to book. You need a minimum of roughly 10 people to do a group booking.

                       

                      The basic package with Arrecife Studio for the $540US includes pictures of you getting ready in your room before the ceremony, pictures of the ceremony, group shots, and then a bride and groom session.

                       

                      We had the raspberry cake as we thought that was a little different and everyone really liked it. They did a nice setup around it on the table with napkin swans and flower petals as well.

                       

                      Beautiful pictures Angie! Congratulations!
