Where to start!!
Wedding..... we met with Vanessa our second day there. We went over a list of things ,flowers, music etc. Took about an hour. She was so organized that it was a breeze. I forgot a couple things so over the next few days I would run over to her office, questions answered in 2 min! We had the ceremony on the beach which was amazing. When we, the girls got there everything was perfect! Ceremony went off without a hitch! They shuttled us everywhere we wanted to go for pics, drinks etc. We had a private family dinner at Portfino as there was 86 of us and that would have cost a bundle for a full dinner so 36 for family and wedding party was perfect which was no extra charge. We had La laguna from 7 to 11 , was very nice. Used our tablet for music and all was good. About 1115 Vanessa said we had to shut it down cause the rooms are near by so no problem, off we went to Colonial lobby, live music till 1 am, and we shut that down! It was a wonderful day and I cant say enough about Vanessa and her team, absolutley fantastic!
The resort is very very big but I liked that because with a group of 86 it was nice not to be stepping on top of each other all the time. the shuttles are really good, we used mainly at night if we had a few drinks! Once you figure out all the paths and short cuts its not more than a 5 min walk anywhere.
Staff were fantastic, just an issue with the front desk manager when my guests with day pass forgot to get their ID when they left. Vanessa did everything she could to deal with it, but he was a bit of an AH. Luis at front desk was great, along with Denise the waitress in colonial lobby.
Overall it was a wonderful wedding/holiday, the 2 weeks went by way too fast!
I put a few pics on my profile on here, cant seem to load them on this.
What time was your wedding? Our wedding is booked for February 25th 2013 at 4pm, I am slightly worried about sunset/photos etc.
We wanted this time due to other daytime arrangements such as the two hour cocktail do etc but I didnt even think about sunset!
What was it like having the restaurant? We would like to have this as no extra charge and only 12 of us but want to do the toast, cake and speeches and are worried it wont be private enough...do they decorate the table at all?
I think we also want the gazebo on the beach for the wedding ceremony!
