    Yes we did. The sound of the waves would have drowned us out without it I think!

      Hi Amy, I think she is assistant to the WC. That's what I kind of figured out while there :-)

        Did you also work with Aurora? What did you think?

          I think she's fairly recent there, she came on while I was planning during the winter. She was a bit disorganized: I'd receive documents she wanted me to fill, which I promptly returned to her, only to re-receive the same email and documentation to fill a few weeks later. But she was great at responding to my communications though, and put me in touch with Javier, the head concierge, when I asked for his email. She might be getting better, as I said, I think she just started there less than 6 months ago... Have you had any problems with getting a hold of her?

            Just to jump in here, I have received my first email from Aurora this week. She responded to my question within 48hrs (damn good by DT standards!) and was the only person I've dealt with so far to actually answer my question in a clear and confident manner.

            Looks like she's finding her feet.....

              Excited to see a fellow "chapel" girl, we dont get many of us on here....

              As for your idea about the trio If I were you I'd double check the timings with your W.C before you make a decision.

              Its my understanding that you usually only get them to play for one set of 45mins - 1 hour so if they started to play in the chapel im not sure if they would then come back later to play the cocktail hour unless you paid a seperate fee.

              Also perhaps they would start timing their set from when they start to play in the chapel so you would then not get the full set for your cocktail hour? Just a thought, maybe some past brides can give more specific info.

                  Since the ceremony runs a little less than 30 minutes, I would say that you would have them for the ceremony and then maybe 15 minutes afterwards, for the start of your cocktail hour. Unless you pay more to extend the time.

                    I am back from my wedding and honeymoon and will start working on my review soon, I promise. But in the meantime I wanted to give you all the link to the pictures that we have so far from the week of the wedding. We created a site on shutterfly.com yesterday so people from our wedding can upload their pictures, download pictures they want, and order prints that they want. There is an album on the site that is rehearsal dinner pictures that the photographer from the resort took. I must admit we hired an outside photographer (Claudia Rodriguez) for the wedding because we didnt know just how good the resort photographer would be but let me just say... WE WERE AMAZED by the pictures that we got from the resort photographer for the rehearsal dinner. All of the pictures on the site are just regulalr colored ones but he did an amazing job of changing some of the pictures to black and white and sepia tone and he printed those for an album that we got. I hope that you enjoy looking at them and as soon as I get pictures from Claudia Rodriguez I will post those.
