    Here is a great picture of the Chichen Gazebo that we will have for the wedding (that I found in Rachaels Shutterfly photo) and to the far right in the picture you will see a gazebo with no roof, this is the Pandero Terrace where we will have the 1 hour cocktail/hors d'ourevers (the post under the photo is mine). I am not sure if I have a picture of the ElGreco, where we will have the wedding dinner, I will check.

    I will try to dig up photos of ours of the other gazebos and restaurants. Give me a little time and I will post them for you.
    We also choose the Chichen Gazebo and the ElGreco because we did not want any kids around.

We are having the 1 hour cocktail and hors d'oveures reception in the Pandero Terrace with music for dancing. We will have the wedding dinner at ElGreco on the outside terrace.
      Hi Julieswedding! thank you so much for all of your helpful information...you must be so excited for your daughters wedding...its so close! Can I ask you, how many people do you have coming to the wedding? and who did your daughter hire as the photographer/videographer? i saw the picture of the Chichen gazebo, it looks beautiful..do you know if the horse and carriage can come right up to that gazebo? sorry for all the questions :) thank you, Nicole

One of my girlfriends schmoozed the manager and talked him into giving us half the terrace (I posted pics earlier in this thread).

          I don't remember hearing music, but maybe it was just because we were outside. We used the BOSE ipod dock and played our own songs throughout dinner (I made a playlist just in case and I'm so glad I did). Hope this helps!
          Hi Rachel...i just looked through all of your pictures, you looked beautiful...What gazebo was your ceremony in and where was your cocktail hour held? also I love the maraccas! thanks...Nicole

              I booked Del Sol for my photographer. They are rather expensize. $2800 for 4 hours, But all the photos are editted and you get the files. As a designer, thats a big deal to me. Plus they do AMAZING work!

              My Wedding is in Feb. I am not sure when I am going to send out the invites. I wanted to do it 2 months ahead, but that puts it in the Christmas Card Rush. Maybe I'll Do it First thing in Decemeber.

                  Hmm you could try to do a search on her. There should be a post of the forums. The name sounds very fimilar..which is probably a good thing. I swear I read good reviews, however Del Sol was the first photographer I looked at, and I booked them right away so I really didn't look into or evaluate other photogapher. Looking back I think I made the right choice, but I wish I would have researched it a bit more.

                    Hi!!!
                    I'm leaving next weeke for my wedding in Aventura Spa Palace. Yayyyy!
                    I'm using Del Sol, (Matt) for my photographer, very excited about this their work looks amazing. I booked them back in December.

                    As for my invitations, I'm having a small group, 15 people I sent my invitations back in October.

                    I have done all my planning with Dulce via email. So hopefully everything will be as wonderful as I imagined when I arrive.

                      Omg YAY! I can't wait wait wait for more ASP Bride photos and reviews. Have you posted your wedding planning thread yet? Also, Did Matt contact you recently for an update / prep for your wedding? Are you using them for your makeup and hair?
