    Hey Everyone,

     

    I just photographed a wedding at the resort and thought I'd share some of the photos.   It was hard to get a good idea of what the resort looked like for wedding purposes before I got there, so I hope it helps your planning!  This is just a Facebook album, but enjoy.  :)

    We also did a Trash the Dress at a nearby cenote and finished at the resort beach.

    Happy planning!

      Hello OCT brides,

       

      We've been back from our dream wedding at the Ocean Coral and Turquesa for two weeks now and I needed to share a quick message with all future brides to let you know how amazing our wedding was. 

       

      First let me start by saying, you are in very good hands with Ana and Arianna.  I could not have asked for better wedding co-ordinators.  They are both very sweet and accomodating. 

       

      The wedding day was absolutely perfect.  It was at 2pm on the beach with the reception at 6pm on the roof top terrace.  I highly recommend having the private reception on the terrace.  Although it is just off the lobby area, it felt very intimate and at no time were we bothered by other guests of the hotel.  We had our own wait staff, and bartenders.  All of our guests raved about how great the food was.  We selected the surf and turf option.  We did the dinner, first dance, speeches, cake cutting and even had time for some music/dancing in the three hour time period we were given. 

       

      Instead of rambling on about how much I loved our wedding, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask. 

      Sandi

        Hi Sandy!

         

        It's great to hear that everything went so well! We are leaving in 9 weeks, it's coming up fast and all the little details are finally getting decided. we have been thinking we wanted to have the dinner in the private banquet hall for just that reason, the privacy! but after reading your post I am thinking twice. did they put up semi walls to block off your area? and how much did the reception cost you? we were planning on doing the lobby terrace after the dinner for the dancing etc. but it would be nice to do it all in the same place. Thanks for your help!

          HI Lise,

           

          I personally think it would be a shame to have the private reception indoors.  It's such a beautiful location.  There were no barriers put up. There are built in barriers with the terrace walls with one side of the area with glass doors leading to the lobby lounge area. You have your own area on the terrace top.  I honestly do not remember anybody else around other than our guests.  We had 32 people and decided to have a large square for our dinner party.  There were 8 people on each side.  Very intimate. 

          Are you on FB?  If you want to add me as a friend (Sandi Perisic), you can see some of my pictures including many from the reception. 

           

          We had a package deal so I don't know how much the reception was.  The package deal included everything from the flowers,private reception, legal work, the justice of the peace, my hair and makeup etc. 

          If there is anything else, feel free to ask. 

           

          Sandi

            Hi ladies!

            I'm wondering if any of you have had a friend or family member take your wedding pictures at this resort?  I know in the emails I've exchanged with Ana the resort doesn't allow any outside photography, but does that extend to your own guests taking the pictures?  My wedding is on March 10th 2011 so I'm cutting it a little close if I have to hire their exclusive photographer.

             

            Thank you! Steph

              Hi Steph,

              Last email I sent to Ana asking about photographers, she replied by telling me that I can use my own (also family friend) as long as they are staying at the resort. I just don't think you can bring someone in for the day.

              Hope this helps!

                Hi Sandi!

                 

                I added you :) I do agree, I would love to have the dinner outside but my fiance really doesn't want to if there will be other people around. He is worried about the speeches and people feeling really uncomfortable. If I can't convince him then I think we are going to compromise and have the dinner inside for 2 hours and then move to the lobby terrace for the dancing/reception. What package did you get? I don't remember seeing one with an outdoor reception.

                 

                Thanks for your help!

                  Hi Steph,

                   

                  I just got back from my wedding at the OCT and we used a family member to take our pictures. 

                  If I'm not mistaken, you can use an outside photographer for a fee.  You have to pay their day pass as well as a fee.  Ask Ana about that.

                    Lise,

                    I believe the package was called the Paradise.  I can forward a copy of it to you on FB including the price and all other details. 

                    Try your hardest to convince your fiance to go with the outdoor reception.  You won't regret it.  I sent some pics today for you. 

                     

                    Sandi
