        Hi! Your pictures are great! I am a future bride at a RIU resort next May. The WC keeps telling me that there is a strict policy about outside photographers and that I cannot hire one. Is that true?? Was it an issue for you??

        Thanks! Kara

            I noticed your hubby wearing flipflops on the rocks! That's too cute peaking from under the suit :)

            I'm a future bride at RPLA in October 2009 - just in the beginning of the process. Kind of nerve wracking hearing about Pamela's lack of response. It took her 1.5 weeks to reply to one email so far. I think I'm ok with that...what bothered me in your review - her total lack of accountability during the wedding

            That's odd about the photog rule. I asked in the beginning stages of my planning regarding outside vendors and the hotel was fine with it as long as I paid for day passes. I ended up bringing two photographers, one videographer and a mariachi of six people that were all outside vendors. I wonder why the rules would be different in the RM RIU's from the ones in Cancun?! Have you talked to the supervisor that overlooks the wedding department about this?

            Thanks! We hired Vincent to do both our wedding and TTD pics, but he was sick the day of our wedding, so Diego took the pics. Vincent was there to take our our TTD pics and we thought he did a great job. Here's the link to the thread where I posted the pics. It's only a few, but he took some amazing pics that aren't even on the slideshow that I'm totally in love with!

                Great review!!!
                It was just today that I was going through your pictures again...they are beautiful! I could watch them over & over!! I think my fav (or one of them!) is when you are first coming out of the building about to walk down the aisle & you're crying! It's so moving!!!!!

                  Your pictures are gorgeous!!!

                  Too bad you had some problems with the WC, but it looks like it turned out wonderful in the end!

                  Thanks for posting :)

                    Ahh, you're too sweet! Thanks! That's one of my favorite pics too. It's funny because when I got out of the hotel to start walking down the aisle, the "wedding" really wasn't what was making me cry, it was the fact that there were soooo many people starring at me and I started to get really nervous and scared. So, I began crying and the entire way down the aisle my dad was cracking me up to relax me and thank goodness it worked!
