We are using Lidya Solemidt for our photography. I only really need her for our ceremony and all the photos after... and not really for the reception. Our ceremony is going to be so short and quick that I'm only asking for her for 2 hours. We have a couple people in the family who are photographers and are going to be taking pictures through reception as well as we're putting out cameras for people to take pictures. Lidya is also doing a TTD shoot for us the next day. Her total fee is $850. We aren't actually booking a dj. My FBIL knows a little bit about it and our reception site has all the equipment to do it ourselves so we're paying $250 for equipment.

Sorry it took so long to get the answer! Laura said that if you do not have your reception w/ the Lol-Ha Restaurant the fee for a ceremony at Cannon House Site is $100

Thank you but we have decided to have our wedding in Puerto Vallarta instead. We could not get a lot of information on Cayman and got frustrated. Thanks anyway.

You absolutely can!! I'm having a wedding for 50 ppl and my ceremony/reception budget is about $7000 but that includes a TON of extras like elaborate lighting and decoration (i.e. fabric drapery, specialty chair covers & sashes, high end centerpieces, etc..). If I take out all those extra things that I had them order especially for me, the budget goes down by about a $1000. I was just ultra pickey about certain things. I'm not even staying at an all inclusive, i had everything done a la carte because I don't particularly like pre-packaged weddings...again, I'm just picky. So, I think you just need to do your research and NEGOTIATE (never pay for something without trying to bring the cost down or get extras thrown in).
