I know there are lots of new brides on here who I don't know, but I wanted to say enjoy your wedding planning! I am missing mine already! We got married April 25 at AS and I have been M.I.A before and after the wedding on this site, but I couldn't have done it without this website and all the support (and ideas!) I got from everyone. Just thought I would check in and say hello! Congratulations to all the April and May brides, those were the girls I got to know the best! I just wanted to say that our wedding was amazing and I don't have a single regret about doing destination. I just have to get some motivation to write my review! Our wedding was just a bit different as we had a catholic ceremony at El Dorado and got our pictures taken there on the beach, which was gorgeous, and then had our reception dinner at Spoon. I got even luckier as I didn't plan a private reception after and ended up having a live band at the Mojito Bar, it was perfect. I will see if I can post any pics. For the photographer, I used Caribe from the resort and had no idea who my photographer was until the day of the wedding, but I must say I was absolutley thrilled with my pictures, considering I blindly booked the package and had no idea who would be showing up that day. I am more than happy with my pictures, he was so professional and knew all the right shots to take. i was especially worried bc my now husband (lol - still funny to call him my husband!!) hates getting pictures taken, so the photographer did a great job. Our photographer was Santos, we got the 6 hour package which came with 3 albums completed and a dvd with all the pics on it to take home. I know of a few girls thinking of doing destination/or in the process of planning one and I can't say enough great things about the wedding. Even my mom who was not on board at the start, had a blast and told me several times what a great week and so nice for the families and our friends to get to spend some time together. So thought I would try and share some pics. I miss my room, the sun and my daily margarita lol. What an amazing week. My only complaint is that we stayed a week with our friends and family and then they left! We stayed at the same resort, should have maybe went somewhere else for our honeymoon. We were missing the party lol and had already seen every show and ate in every restaurant. Anyways, it was all good and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
