    The sound guy is great too!

    I gave my iPod to my sister to man, but the sound guy took care of that too!

    By "burnt" did you use cds or just the IPOD? Trying to decide which to do. May bring both just so have back ups. Do they have the cables to connect the IPOD to their sound system? Thank you tons for the help!

      I took my laptop and burnt a CD for the ceremony only.
      The sound guy has a whole elaborate set up with his headset, PC, CDs, mixer, etc. He did a fabulous job.

        I didn't rent the sound system for the ceremony because I thought that almost $200 for a 10 minute ceremony was ridiculous. It was very loud up there, but honestly it was difficult for us to even understand the officiant and no one mentioned that they couldn't hear anything. At first I was adamant about getting it and then I decided I really didn't want to spend more money. I think it was fine. I would say if you have a large group you would definetly want it, but because we had a small group claudia had our chairs set up really close to the gazebo, so I think everyone could hear just fine.

          So, you had the sound system for the wedding and the reception? Or you just used the IPOD for the reception?

              Oh good point Jilly!
              Since we had 41 people, I think we needed it the way our chairs were set up.

              Sound system for ceremony, then they connected our ipod to the sound system which was rated per hour during the reception.

                Do you think for the reception an IPOD docking station would work?

                  I believe that's what Jilly used for her reception and thought it worked great. It probably depends on how many people you plan to have.

                    Thank you! we used claudia rodriguez's studio. We were supposed to have Citlalli, but she got really sick the night before our wedding so we had another guy, I don't remember his name, but he was one of her associate photographers.

                    we used a docking station, but we only had 25 people. I think Paula had around 40 and said it worked well also.

                    If you're having a group bigger than that I would probably get a DJ

                      I will have between 30-40 so it should work fine. Did it cost a lot extra for Claudia's staff to do the photography?
