    Bianca!
    You are amazing posting a mini review while you are there. I am a little worried about the gazebo now. We are planning to have our ceremony and reception there.
    I am so glad everything went well! Enjoy the rest of you trip. We look forward to your pictures!

        The thing I am really concerned about is the ceremony music - i got the ultimate package but swapped the mexican trio for a violinist but Jacy can't give me a list of music the violinist can play.

        What should I do about reception music? are you having a DJ then too? what are your music selections?

        I also keep changing my mind about where to have everything-lol
        I am glad to hear there is another option if you want to swap the mexican trio!! I too am getting the Ultimate package.

            I think our night in the gazebo was a bit rare. The wind really picks up in the evening. Its not that bad in afternoon. I would just go check it out every evening at the time you plan on having your ceremony before the big day. I hope the videographer for my veil flying away. My photog said she missed it. I'm sure they got a chair sliding away.

              Rehearsal dinner:
              Jacy said they could set up a long table at Portofino for us, but that was not the case. i went up to the hostess and told her what we wanted and she offered to set up 2 tables for us on the deck, one for 10 and the other for 9. My dad left them like a $25 tip per waiter. We had 2. I would have known sooner about not being able to set up the tables for us, but my voicemail was not working.

              Ceremony:
              OMFG IT WAS WINDY!!! No joke. That part was horrible. My veil flew out of my hair. Luckily my sister caught it. There was a chair or two that got blown across the gazebo and we had to cut out the sand ceremony. I did not ask for the speakers but it was set up for us anyways. I asked for the videographer and he was there. There were also like 3 resort photographers plus my photographer, Martha Roque. Everything was nice. I didn't really care about the decorations at this point. they had the tulle wrapped around the poles like we've seen in other photos. There were two floral pieces set up on the front two poles and then one on the table. Thats about it.

              Reception:
              This was gorgeous! Oceana was closed that night so we had it there WITH our 3 kids. Jacy said it was not a problem. The set up was amazing. I really need to post photos of this. Jacy did an amazing job. One part that I didn't let bother me was that there were some rude people on their balcony making "sex" noises. A bit immature, but they eventually stopped.

              let me know if you guys have any questions... I will try to post some pics in the next week or so.


              OOOOHHHH!! My photographer's husband also owns a transportation company. We got a great rate to take us to the ruins on Friday. We went to Coba and Tulum and had lunch in between. The beach at tulum is something you do NOT want to miss! We paid $320 for two 14 passenger vans that had a cooler with water and beer. Sinal tours was charging $390 I think for the 2 vans without the cooler with drinks.
              Bianca - Congrats!
              Can you post the photog's hubby's company info...sounds great!
              Ladies - sorry I have fell off the planet. Busy with work and move = no time for wedding stuff :)! I just sure am glad this swine flu stuff is dying down :)

                Aaronsgirl - weather can change, so don't worry! Part of the reason I keep saying, I will figure it out when I get there! I am planning on ceremony in gazebo and cocktail hr there, reception not sure, pending temperature, wind, humidity. I don't want my hair and makeup running down my face! It will be great whereever, your on vacation!

                    A small gift for you... Our video from the resort videographer is uploaded onto youtube. I haven't really watched the whole thing or even know if the whole thing is up. I am a youtube newbie...
