I think you pictures are beautiful! Your hair looked very natural. I wouldn't have known it was a weave if I didn't read this post. I love your Trash the dress session. I would have been terrified to get my weave wet!

 

Thank you so much for the kind words! The TTD was so much fun. I wash my weaves all the time, so getting it wet was no problem for me. The sand came out very easily. Hoping all the best for your big day :)

They are one of my favorite design houses, so I had to get one! The original one I wanted was called Enebro, but they discontinued it. I was heartbroken, but I this was 2nd on my list anyway, so it all worked out. I named my dress Lupe, lol. All the best to you in your wedding planning. Feel free to contact me if you need any advice, help, etc.

AfricanVenus,

I'm not sure if you still frequent the board or not but I just looked at your pictures and I must say, you guys look like you had a ball! So much happiness and love in those pics! Did you take your photographer with you or was it the resort's photographer?

 

Your dress was the very first dress I picked out when I got engaged; then I talked myself out of it. But you looked stunning in it.

2012mrstobe,

I still have my email notifications set so I can respond to this thread. The photographer I used, Aurora Gutierrez, was someone I found while researching. My venue came with a photographer as part of my package, so I had 3 photogs that day (2 photogs and 1 assistant). Aurora divides her time I think between Southern California (Studio Eternity) and Mexico (AuroraGPhotography). I believe her headquarters, if you will, is Mexico. She lived 4 hrs from our venue, so I paid her toll fare since she drove. She was so wonderful and extremely personable. A really lovely person, as well as professional. I didn't take any service providers with me. I think Mexico is full of local talent. If you search hard enough, you can find anyone within your price range. Where are you planning to wed?

AfricanVenus,

I will be getting married in Jamaica. I already have a photographer but I had to come in and comment on your pictures as it seems as if the photographer captured the very essence of your wedding. The pictures are really great and he documented some great memories.

I have locs past the middle of my back, so getting my hair done on the resort will be verrry interesting! My travel agent said that to can send them pictures so they can figure out who can do my hair, but I will most likely taking myself off-resort to a natural hair stylist unless they have an ace in the hole that I don't know about! LOL I have gotten lots of inspiration from Munaluchi bride, and wanted to share: http://munaluchibridal.com/wedding-hair-inspiration-19-wedding-updos-for-black-brides/ These styles are so fierce! These headpieces are even fiercer: http://munaluchibridal.com/wedding-hair-bridal-headpieces-and-accessories/

I broke down and put a texturizer in my hair. My stylist told me not to but I was worried. I should have listened to her because the job she did on my hair was AMAZING!! It lasted all day and the next day it looked gorgeous and wavy when i took it out. I had an off center low bun with beautiful pin curls. LOVED IT!!

I was married on April 25, 2013. I got a sew in for the wedding with the deep wave Brazilian hair. The Spa curled it and pinned it up. For the reception, we took the pins down on one side of my hair so it seemed as though I had two different styles. The hair was perfect with the weather. I did not have to do anything to it.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
