Absolutely! It's starting to feel real now. It's going to be so beautiful. I think I am using the same photographer as you too Kits (Cecilia Dumas). I love her portfolio and can't wait to see what she does with our wedding. Thanks again! 6 months and counting....

I used a photographer that I flew in but I know a ton of girls have used Cecilia Dumas. :) But of course you might not know that since I STILL haven't gotten my review posted on here. sad.gif I have heard that Cecilia is great to work with and takes fantastic pictures.

I see that you are from St. Paul, is that the MN St. Paul? :) I grew up in MN and lived there until college. I can't wait to visit in a month! I love nothing more than the leaves along the St. Croix in fall!

Yes...Cecilia... she can take a while sometimes :-)
But I hear she now has an assistant! So hopefully that will help things along...

As I said before, I'm MORE than happy to help out with anything I can... (i.e. if you need any price lists sent to you etc, am happy to do it...though most of all that stuff is posted already in the "accommodations" section of the forum or even in the old Silversands/Maroma thread)...
Anyhoodles -- congrats! And let me know if you need any help... (need to know the layout/set-up etc...)

Cheers!

Hi ladies,

 

I am getting married on December 19th at SMB. Are there any other brides getting married here in the next few months? Hope everyone is doing well. I am so excited to see the resort for the first time.

 

Laura

Hello everyone! I will be getting married here on Jan 30th 2010 and absolutely cannot wait! It will just be the two of us and then a reception to follow at home :) The only detail I am still undecided about is the photographer, I see that a lot of past brides did not use the resort photographer so I am a little worried because that is who I was going to go with. I asked Cecilia for some info but haven't heard back yet...any advice ladies?

Hi there!

The resort photographer is Juan Navarro...or rather his company (i.e. you may not get Juan himself for your wedding, but one of his associates)...
If you use the search function (top right), you can search his name on here and there should be some threads with reviews of girls who used either him, or one of his associates...

What you choose totally depends on how important pictures are to you and what style you like...
In a nutshell, I'd say if pictures are super important to you, you may want to book an outside photographer.
if you're not too concerned, then Juan Navarro or one of his associates would probably be okay... you won't get the same quality as some of the pro photogs on this site though:-)

We used one of his associates during our reception, b/c we had an hour included in our package (and at that time SMB was NOT doing substitutions of any kind :-( )... Anyway, since our pro photog (outside vendor) had left by the time our reception started, we had the resort photog cover our reception for about an hour/hour and a half...
And actually, his pictures were pretty good! (better than we expected:-)) We actually liked quite a few of them and bought a CD of all the pictures...

If you want, you can check out the pics he took for us on our photoshare site:
(we had one of Juan's associates, who, if I recall, was named Edgar...he was really nice! Better than our pro photog:-))

Just click on the album labelled "resort photog pics"... don't bother going through the other albums... you'll get really bored:-)

Anyhoodles...hope this helps, and if you have any other questions, ask away:-)
