    In response to the first question---yes, those will be our thank you's.

    Ellipse---We did not rent the disco. You can rent it from 9-11, but with only 23 guests, we didn't feel that ten people or whatever dancing on the floor at a time would be much fun. Regardless of whether someone has booked it or not from 9-11, it doesn't open to the public until 11, so we were just waiting and waiting to get the show on the road.

    As for Dunn's---we emailed Michael four months prior and asked. He said he had done TTD at the RIU, but never at Dunn's. He was enthusiastic and said it would be a great challenge. However, after the actual shoot he said that he had never done one there before because he thought it would be too crowded. Since we didn't see anyone until 11 a.m., he said that our experience changed his mind and that maybe he'd start to advertise a bit. He was very happy with the pics and thanked us for the idea/opportunity.

    We wanted to arrive at 8:30 a.m. when it opened to avoid the crowds, but since we didn't have any beach photos from our wedding day due to the weather, we did some beach photos first. Since Michael was already there shooting, he offered to give us a ride to Dunn's which was above and beyond---a taxi would have been $20 (originally the person in the lobby said $30, so we left. They called our room later and said they'd take us for $20). We paid Michael's entry fee which was only maybe $7 since he has a residents card (it's normally $15).

    We felt very bad, as Michael got both of his cameras wet and they shut off. Luckily, we were just about done anyway. He said that the insurance for his camera is hundreds of dollars and he had never thought it necessary to buy it, but now he knows why he should. Luckily, he wiped them off and they were working by the time we left.

          Thank you very much for your review. I really appreciate an honest review. I am sorry about the rain and all the negative experiences. It must be frustrating to be planning for over a year to not to have it go as plannned.

          Congratulations on your marriage!

                  I am so happy to hear that Michael worked out!!! That makes me feel so much better since we are going to be using him or Christopher instead of being along a photographer.....
                  Your pictures are amazing!!!! Congrats and welcome back

                    Congratulations and thanks for the review! I'm getting married December 2009 and will hope for the best with regards to the weather.

                    I love your flowers. Did you pay extra? Also, did you pay extra for the tulle around the gazebo? I also want to use the aqua blue and orange combination.

                    Thanks again for your review and I'm glad you are enjoying the married life.

                      Congratulations, Sorry about the weather, your pictures still look fantastic. I was telling by FI about the ones at Dunns river and he wants us to have some took there, could you let me know if you went there just for the photos or did you go on an organized trip and took your dress with you. x
