Do you have the price list and flower options catalog? Do you know your colors and budget? If so, I'd just pick what you want and send her an email asking for a quote. Also, in the same email ask every question you have (and get quotes) in bullet point form. Once you email it out to Nayeli, follow up in a day or 2 with a phone call to her. Lynn uses skype which is less expensive, but either way, you should probably call her asap. The email will serve as the "in writing" part.
Nayeli did our ceremony and the wording was beautiful. The judge just stands next to her so there's no translation needed. You will get your marriage certificate in Spanish and it is legal in the states. We live in NJ and did not need to register it here, and we used the Spanish version to put me "in the system" as my husband's wife with the Military-He's retired from the Air Force. Therefore, we did not have it translated to English. It's super easy, and you will only need your passport and tourist card(that you get at the airport going through immigrations). You'll need to be there at least 3 days before the wedding to get your blood work done (Dr will take your blood at the hotel and requires $200 in USD cash) Your witnesses (4 of them)will need to be there by then as well in order to sign the paperwork that Nayeli will send to the court. At the ceremony you and all of your witnesses will sign the official document. If you do not have 4 witnesses, the WC staff will be your witnesses.
If you choose symbolic, you wont need to do anything other than say I do. With both, you do not need to write vows unless you want to...just let her know.
It is so important for brides to know that this time of year starts to get crazy busy for them, and the communication will be fewer and far between so start asking questions and quotes EARLY so you can have plans nailed down as you go. If you don't have specifics you want, then they will choose for you. It will still be beautiful, but may not be exactly what you want, so the best tips I can give is BE SPECIFIC and get a quote for everything. Even if you talked to someone and it was a verbal quote, write an email stating the verbal quote.
Amy, if I can help with any forms of specifics for you, IM me and I'll give you my email and send forms I have.

I have literally recieved no additional information other than what is on the website. Have not picked flowers, not had a final cost quote, or even discussed prices. We also still aren't sure whether to have a symbolic or legal ceremony and have asked for the wording of each and have had no response. I am feeling very let down. We didn't meet with Nayeli when we visited but Daniella who has since been fired, I feel like she promised us a bunch of stuff during our tour but now have nothing in writing!
Is anyone else experiencing issues with this?
