and now of course i have more questions...Who did your hair and make up? How many people fit into the gazebo during the ceremony?

Fernando Fuentes did hair and make up. He's not associated with the hotel, I hired him as an outside vendor and had to get a day pass for him to come to the resort. His info is in the "hair and makeup" thread.
A lot of people can fit in the gazebo. All our guest easily...we could've fit 50 more with room to spare, the gazebos are quite large.
Yes, we hired the Mexican Trio to play during our cocktail hour. They were great!!! I loved having them. I think they were about $500/hour. Which was a lot cheaper than the Mariachi band.
We didn't hire a DJ, we just rented the sound equipment and used our Ipod. You can't hire an outside DJ at ASP and I wasn't sure about their onsite DJ. An ipod worked really well because we got to have the exact music we wanted and they had someone there to control it so people weren't changing songs, playing with the ipod, etc. And it was cheaper than hiring the DJ. Plus now I have my whole wedding playlist and I'm not gonna lie...when I'm home alone and cleaning I put it on and dance and get a bit of nostalgia, it's nice to have the music from my wedding!!
The projection screen and projector was around $1000-$2000 I think?? I posted a price sheet a few pages back for the price of the lights, DJ, screen, etc if you want to see the prices for everything.
This was the view of Mundaca while they were setting up the reception:
Of course this was during the day at night you couldn't really see anything but it was gorgeous.
