    I kind of just told people that this way we could get a free cocktail hour. They were all ok with it so I didnt have to worry about it too much.

    jodimichelle: Yes, I just asked her and she said when I buy the day pass just say it is for a guest. She said dont say its for an outside vendor. But once he is there with the pass its fine.

    jena0609: I do have a picture. Im not sure how to post on here but if you send me our email I can email it to you. The only thing about it is that it looks really big so we have two places reserved just in case its too big. I can show you pictures of both places if you want. Our photographer is Octavio Montes.

    krismcmit: The lady that I was talking to was named Yudelka. As of a couple days ago she does not work there anymore. So your best bet would be to email then a couple more times then try calling.

      Kelly...I'm curious to know if you got something different?
      Yazmin actually just sent me an email that had file attachments of various pictures that the photographer had taken of weddings at the resort. The website she gave you was what I was really looking for when I asked her who the photographer is and if I could see samples of his work.

          Elizabeth Medina (the photographer we used) lives about 4 hours from Aventura Spa Palace. She required a stay at the resort as part of our package.

          I never really asked the people at ASP, I just told them from the beginning that one of our guests would be doing our pictures. I figured its easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission =)

          Our pro pics should be up soon! can't wait!

            Hi everyone
            Does anyone know how far away the closest golf course is? I know some of my guests will want to golf...

            Also, how far away are teh other resorts that we are allowed to use for "free"?

            Thanks!

                Erin-Your pictures do look great! Congratulations!

                Marissa-The Moon Palace is one of the "free" resorts that we can go to and they have a golf course. It's in Cancun and according to what I have read it is 45 min away.

                  ERIN your pictures are BEAUTIFUL! They make me second guess going with the included photographer. I wish someone on here who used them would post their pictures. (I've seen the website, I just want to see someone on here's pictures too). I don't think a photographer is in our budget unfortunately.

                    Hey ladies... i apologize for being so intermittent here. I kind of thought life would slow down once the holidays were over, but January was busier than December and February is looking even worse!!!!

                    Anyway, I used the resort photographer, and while the quality is probably not as good as some of the pro photographers, it wasn't as big a deal to me and i still thought they were really good. I can't be bothered to try to upload them here (i have never managed to make them work properly!) - but you can go to my wedding website to take a look if it will help you out. You can tell some are really great shots and some are just mediocre... I got enough shots that i thought were really good that it was worth it to me. If you tell the photographer some ideas you would like to try, he is really willing to work with you. If not, you get the "stock" photos. (We liked the idea of the pool balls showing our wedding date. That was actually my husband's idea - and some turned out great, some not so much. Once he figured out what we were going for, they were better and not so out of focus...) We are fairly picky people about those kind of things and we were happy with our resort photog, but it's all about your preferences.

                    Go to the "Photo Album" page and the album you want is "Wedding - official". These are the ones from the resort photographer. You can also check out the resort photos - i think i took photos of EVERYTHING on the resort property!!!

                    Hope this helps! Please feel free to PM me if you need anything else!!

                      So to use an outside photographer, we just have to have them stay there or get them a guest pass and claim that they are our guest, right? I just want to make sure I have everything set for that!
