Super Newbie Getting Married in Cancun!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I am so excited to join this forum! My first forum i have ever joined besides American Idol when I was a freshman in college back in 2002 =P

 

1) My name is Joy and my fiance and I got engaged on August 9, 2008. I immediately went in wedding planning mode so here i am.

 

2) We are getting married next April 2009. The exact date is still in the works. we are waiting for confirmation on my other alternate date. I should have it confirmed by the end of the week. I have Saturday, April 18th reserved from my wedding sales coordinator, but I am waiting to see if April 23-25 are avaiable. We decided to look at later dates because teh resort we picked is lowering their daily room rate beginning on April 18th. We want a nice, very detailed oriented wedding so we're trying to save as much as we could!

 

3) We picked Moon Palace Resort and Spa in Cancun for our wedding location. I am sooo happy to see that our resort is a super popular wedding destination. It took super long for my fiance and I to choose a resort, let alone a country! Our first choice was St. Lucia and Bahamas 2nd. However, we needed all-inclusive resort since we are planning on bringing family members with us.

 

I just want to share how lucky I feel to have my fiance help me out EVERY STEP of the way! we do nightly pow-wows on wedding planning. I am sooo proud to say that every decision we've made, from date to location to price range, have been done TOGETHER! we debate and weigh our pros and cons, then we make a decision as one. awww sappy huh?

 

we have been together for 10 years so it's about time we get married! we are both 25, from California, college grads who have professional careers. we are both avid travelers so a destination wedding is perfect. we decided to have one while vacationing in dominican republic. we can't wait to be married and start our family =)

 

thank you to all of you who keep this forum going. i LOVE reading your posts, reviews, opinions, and stories! thanks for sharing =)

 

 

- Joy

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
