Happy Legal Day Maura! **UPDATED W/PICS!**

Recommended Posts

Thank you thank you thank you for all your well-wishes and prayers for good weather! Our legal day was fantastic!

 

We started off the day having breakfast at the café across the street on Saturday morning and then I left to get my hair done. I liked it, but I will definitely be doing my hair different for the wedding in Mexico because it didn’t hold up great in the wind and from moving around and being hugged by everyone, so I can’t imagine what it would’ve looked like if we had been dancing all night too. I haven’t gotten the photos loaded from my own camera but when I do, I will come back and add a close up photo of my hair.

 

We ended up actually doing our ceremony on the garden terrace overlooking the Chicago River at a fancy restaurant about a block from our house. The weather ended up being beautiful, there was a little bit of wind and it was a little cloudy during the ceremony, but the sun came out toward the end. We toasted with champagne afterwards, and had a few glasses of wine before heading to dinner with our parents. We spent the weekend at a hotel so we had a kind of mini-moon, which was really nice to have some privacy while his family had the run of our house.

 

Today (Sunday) we went to brunch at the Four Seasons Hotel with our parents before we took Jose’s parents to the airport. It was absolutely incredible! All in all, it was amazing, and we are so so so excited for our wedding in Mexico now!

 

Here are some highlights in photos from the day.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
