      Hi! First off I just want to congratulate you on your wedding!
      I loved the pic with the fruit and the b/w with the blue ocean, I hope what ever photographer I pick can create some pics like that for me. I also loved your flowers.

      I am also getting married in Playa del Carmen, by Father Jorge too! So now you have me a bit concerned. You say he seem bothered at first because you were late, how late were you to the ceremony? Did you have a full Catholic Mass or shortened version? I'm just wondering how did he get confused or off track. And about him just disappearing wow, that's weird. He didn't even announce you two as Mr. & Mrs

      Overall, I'm glad everything turned out well for you two.

      I do!!!!

        Congratulations to you Deb on your engagement and upcoming wedding, how exciting! It was such a wonderful time for me so I'm happy to hear you are now experiencing it, it will be great! So you are also getting married by Fr. J :). Yeah, I was perplexed by some of the things that ocurred....we were only about 5-10 mins late due to the van breaking down (and my wedding coordinator was there at the church telling him why we were late, but I guess the reason didn't matter much), so I'm not sure why he seemed a bit bothered. We had a fairly short ceremony too (we omitted the homily and intercessions, and the bringing up of the gifts-they were already there at the altar) so it's not like we spilled over an hour. But honestly I think that is just his personality. He's kinda dry and monotone, but I had expected that from the other brides I talked to before we got married. Even though we gave him a detailed program of what we wanted in English/Spanish and the order of the songs, he still messed up about 2-3 times. But honestly this didn't take away from the beauty of the ceremony for us. The violinist we worked with really knew his catholic ceremony so helped to "cover up" some of the mistakes the priest made. I think, because I knew the program inside out, only knew of the flub ups. My family said they didn't even realize because they were enjoying the ceremony and the view so much. One thing though that we all cracked up about was the asst running up to the altar for us to sign the papers when we thought we were getting ready to kiss. We laugh about it still now and how we kissed on our own, but again we were on such a high that day that it wasn't such an issue for us. The chapel is amazing (are you getting married there, or in the main larger church in town?) with the view of the sea, we couldn't have gotten married in a better place! I think you'll be just fine Deb, honestly. When I was in your position I had read reviews of the priests and was als worried, but after chatting with a few brides I felt better and knew what to expect, and in the end we were really happy! Who is helping you coordinate your wedding and where are you having your celebration afterward? Do you have a lot of guests coming? Good luck with everything and feel free to PM me anytime if you need more info or have more questions!!!

          Hi Susan,

          well after reading your response, I can see that maybe the Father got confused with your program.... but guess what? I just got news today that Father Quinn will be officiating my wedding instead because Father Jorge is transfering to Tulum. So now I'm going to research on Father Quinn. Our wedding will be at the bigger church in town and we plan on having a full mass. Our wedding coordinator is Ajua Weddings, and so far they have been great with handling our requests and responding to e-mails right away. It's just so weird though to put your trust into people you've never met, but so far I am satisfied. Our reception will be at a restuarant/beach club called Zenzi. I wanted to be able to see and hear the ocean for our reception,

            Hi! Congrats on your upcoming wedding! We did not have Fr. Quinn...we were assigned Fr. Jorge so didn't have a choice. It didn't matter tho, I had heard Fr. Q was realllly dry and unemotional.

              Even after 3.5 years, your posting is still very helpful. I had no idea how the chapel on 5th Avenue looked like! It is definitely lovely. Thanks for sharing.

                I was wondering how many people can fit in the chapel and is it air conditioned?
