You must be getting so excited!! I've heard she is incredible too, I'll definitely contact her but think she os out of our price range. Although, photography is super important... Hmm....

Wondering if you ladies can help me out? I'm in a photocontest. To win you have to get the most votes on fb. Here's the link:
Otherwise you can check him out Chris Schmitt
As much as I complained about DH not being involved in any of the wedding plans, I would have gone crazy if it were the other way and he was in my face with his opinion all the time. QUOTE]
I agree, I canâ€™t complain too much, he would have driven me INSANE if he ever argued with what I wanted to tried to push in his own creative sideâ€¦ yeah no.
Liked your photographer & your photo! I hope you win!!!
LMAO you are too funny!

So, she sends me the link. But it's only for USA brides. (I'm Canadian and although my fiance is American he lives here in Vancouver w/ me - but 1/2 our guests are coming from the USA... so I don't understand if we could still qualify). So... she sends me the link to Canadian promotions. And there's a GREAT Canadian bride & groom stay free promotion - - it applies to every Karisma hotel EXCEPT AS!!! aaaargh. I'm hoping that we might be able to negotiate out some kind of combo of the two promotions or something?!?
Anyone around here had any luck with their negotiations with the WC's at Karisma? I just want what I think is fair - since it seems to be offered to almost every other bride. And I'm in kind of a bizarre situation with the Canadian/American stuff. Suggestions anyone? TIA
So sorry to hear this! Hope you get it all worked out.

We ended up finding someone locally in Toronto, who we are flying down with us. His name is Taylor Jackson, and I am loving his work.
I know that when we discussed not using the resort photographers, we were told it would be $500US, and it had to be an approved photographer. Or someone who was staying at resort (although they did not provide how long that person might have to be staying.)
I was told by my WC that they either had to pay the outside vendor fee ($500) or stay three nights. I figured the vendor fee would end up being less, so I was trying to look for Mexican photogs, however, if I really like someone I'll definitely be willing to fly them down!
I think we would be able to use Claudia without the vendor fee, so I am seriously considering her!

I am so thankful that they were willing to help doing some of the tedious work for only food and drinks! and.. of course for a good time. I feel like I am getting so close to the wedding. I cannot wait till I am done planning!
One of the things we made was the fake mustache and lips as props for our guest picture book. It was so much fun!!!
Do any of you ladies have recommendations for wording for our invites. They're a little formal so I'm thinking the wording should be formal too? Let me know what you think.
Linz, you are so on a roll girl! Your invites and pre-mailer were amazing. Good work! I cant wait to see how cute everything else is for your wedding!
Glad everyone who hasn't heard of it is going to try Old Bay. I love it on baked potatoes and chicken too. I've found it in NC, MA, and now Bermuda so I am sure New Orleans has it somewhere! Its the best on shrimp too - I even add it to tuna salad. :-)
I keep checking Claudia's website for my pro pics and still nothing - its been over 7 weeks - I am dying to see my slide show & wanted to show it to everyone this Saturday at the AHR.
I hope you get them in time! Maybe if you email her and let her know you wanted to show them off she'll expedite the process!
