    Congrats on getting your day!!  It's a wonderful thing when things work out!!!



    Hey there Ellabaja

     

    Yeah I can't say that I have ever seen a fire on a beach yet (other than the fire dancers in Playa).  It could be for many reasons like it is already 30 degrees and a fire would just make it hotter ;)  Also the wind coming off the ocean on the beach is pretty strong at times and would need a substantial fire to keep it going. Some weddings light the reception area with them and it wouldn't take much to get a few more for the beach. 

     

    Here is some examples:

    Congrats on your special day

      We're trying to find something to do other than go to the discos after the reception.  We were thinking it would be awesome to have a fire (we didn't know if it was possible or even made sense) or something on the beach...  any ideas?  We just want to relax with whoever wants to join!

        After our dinner was over, a bunch of us stayed at the bar right next to where we had the reception/dinner.  A lot of guests actually went back to their room after...  It was about 11:30 and it had been a long day in the sun.  They do also have their "POP,"  People of Palladium, where they do different shows during the night...  but that's a sit down and watch thing..  I don't know what else to tell you...

          Most of our guests went back to their room as well after the wedding.  We went to our room to change and it was 12:15, so I guess everyone were just exhausted from the day.  (So were we, but we still had to entertain some of our guests).  We went to the disco... Oh my... worst place ever.  It stinks, isn't really nice and had a bunch of 16 years old, not adults what so ever.  If we were to do it again, we would just go to the lobby bar and hang out.  The disco isn't worth it and no fun at all, IMO.

           

          Maybe you'd want to check it out beforehand, which we didn't do.  We never made it to the disco all week and had written on our welcome letter that we would all meet at the disco following the reception.  Maybe it was just a bad night?  Not sure... but I wouldn't recommend it.

            We didn't even go to the disco when we were there... I was wondering where it was, but it wasn't something anyone was interested in...  Steph, where was it??

              It was at the Riviera, on the right side of the lobby.  So not worth going... Yuk!

               

              We stayed at the Colonial and there was music and animation every night of the week we were there.  Not sure about the other lobbies, but I know there wasn't anything happening at the Kantenah when I walked by 2 nights in a row.

                Hi everyone!

                 

                Here is the slideshow of our wedding photos: http://www.claudiarodriguezblog.com/ (We are the first ones on the page).

                 

                I won't go into details right now, but Claudia has lost some of our photos. I will do a complete review once I find out the final outcome of the situation.  Let's just say I'm a bit frustrated at this point.

                  You look so beautiful!!!  I have goosebumps from watching that!

                   

                  Did you get your photos yet?  I completely understand your frustration, I'd be so upset!

                    Yes, I got a DVD with 3000 pictures.  After going through it, we got about 1100 (including TTD) excellent pictures... althought, we also noticed that all our cocktail hour was missing and plenty of reception pictures.  That's when she told us she had lost them... She's trying to recover some, but I'm still waiting.

                     

                    She picked the pictures herself for the online slideshow.  I'm not 100% satisfied with the outcome, I'd say 50% of the pictures I wouldn't have chosen, but it's okay and doesn't really matter as I'm picking the pictures for the DVD slideshow.

                      Where did your FI and the boys get their suits? I really like them.
