1. Going through Sandra, the group sales person, for booking rooms

3. Photos of us at a ruin... any ruin... in our gown and suit. What do we do?
4. Top choices for reception locations? Does it really matter to book it private?
Thanks and congratulations to all of us!
In terms of question 3, as Bianca said, wedding photography is not allowed at the ruins. I learned that the hard way You can read about my experience in my review (I think it's one of the last things in my review). As said in my review you could sneak your way in by only putting on your wedding clothes when you get inside the ruins, but that is your risk (Laura, one of our other brides, did it and got fabulous photos!)
In terms of question 4, it's all a matter of personal preference. The seaside grill seems to be the most popular option I think. In terms of whether you go private or not I think it depends on if you want to do dancing and speeches. For those you'd want to go private but if it's just a dinner, than it's up to you whether you mind having strangers there (I personally would not mind, I would just consider it more as a dinner than as a formal reception). You have to decide what you want to get out of your reception. But read the new policy about the restaurants carefully because it has recently gotten much harder to book the restaurants privately.
