It worked out well in the end.  It stopped raining right before our ceremony, so we were able to take pics outside, by the beach, and in the hacienda.


    Congrads on your wedding! They say that rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck!


    Question about the hacienda -

    1. I heard that its a private residence that was never completed and that they may resume construction - no sign of this yet?

    2. I also heard that although it photographers very beautifully that its quite dirty inside - is that true?


    Would love to see your pictures when you get them.

      Thank you Boo!


      1. That's what I heard too about the once private residence. But no sign of reconstruction at all.

      2. Yes, it was pretty dirty, but you can't see it in the pictures. Here are a couple of our pics taken in the hacienda.  They were taken around 6:30 so it was getting really dark out.

        Here are couple more pics in the hacienda.  It is dirty, but it looks really romantic in the pictures.

            I agree with ReeRee, the Hacienda is a bit dusty and dirty, but you can't tell in the photos. (Though I would definitly recommend you wear shoes). The  building is really amazing and most of my favorite wedding photos were taken there.  I would recommend all future brides at least check it out before your wedding day to see if you want to use it for pictures.

            Reeree- awesome pics!! Those are gorgeous! I absolutely loved the hacienda but unfortunately we didn't get any pics there.


            I second Mlynnea with a note to all future brides checking out the hacienda before the wedding day. You pretty much can't go wrong with it!

                  Gorgeous pics ReeRee!


                  We didn't get any pics there either (given what a jackass our photographer was, there was no way we were going to be able to drag him there, lol:-))

                  But it does make for beautiful shots:-)

                    Thanks Simister.


                    I drafted my reviews, but the existing wedding review section is closed for all new reviews..  So I'm trying to learn how to post my review, but I think I'd need to add new vendors and post my review there. And for Cecilia Dumas, I have to create another review separately....  Anyway, I will try to figure this out asap.
