    Hi Ladies..

    We are getting married at OTC on May 21st and I'm having trouble making the last few decisions, so I thought you all could help.  We're planning on the ceremony being on the beach, and the cocktail hour as well.  We were also hoping to do dinner outside on the terrace.  I'm just having troucle picturin geverything since I haven't seen actual wedding photos from the location.. I would love to see any that you have to share, my email is jenngraleski@gmail.com

    Also, what did you all do for your rehersal dinner.  I've just received an email from Anna that to do it anywhere besides the buffet is $20 per person extra, did you all pay this.  Suggestions are welcome.


    Thank you,

      hey Jennifer!

      We just got back from our wedding a the OCT and loved it. It was really hard to imagine everything, so when I found this site i was so thrilled. We¨ve just received our wedding photos and they are on facebook. I have no problems with you adding me and having a look through them! I have a few other OCT brides on myfacebook I can link you too also!

        Hi !  It's been a long time.. but to me it was just yesterday.  I didnt get back to you guys since a lot of events happen after my wedding...  unfortunatly I lost my mom two days after I returned from our wedding. 


        Our wedding was on Nov 10th 2010... The wedding and resort were perfect!  I do have lots of picture on my Facebook (200)


        Your welcome to come and see!  Enjoy every moment of your planning I goes so fast.

          Thank you. I just searched for you on FB, but was unsuccessful. Are you on there under your maiden name by chance?

              Oh! And the outside photographer fee was 400 USD we talked her down to 200 USD after another bride told me that's what she got them to agree to. Also, word of experience... our package included pictures from the resort, and even though i hired an outside photographer and payed the fee, i figured since my package included the resorts photographer, I should still be allowed to have them there too (it's more pictures right??) anyways, on our last day there we went and viewed the photo's at the hotel gift shop and they were HORRIBLE!!!! we were allowed to chose 25 to be printed off to take home with us... we could only find 23 (out of the 150 that were taken) that were okay. We ended up getting doubles of a few of them as we coujldn't find 25 we even liked! DONT REGRET IT! pay the 200 USD fee to get your photographer on site. We hired Sascha Gluck, and we LOVED him!!!

                  Can I ask what you are paying for a package there from Canada? I am waiting to hear back from my TA and I am wondering what approx prices are like from there. Thanks!

                    I could not agree with Jacquelyn more.... pay the extra $200 to have an outside photographer and I promise it will be the best $200 you will ever spend!!!  We also paid the $200 fee and hired Lincoln from Moments That Matter Photography and are unbelievably happy that we did - he's fantastic!  I have several of our wedding pics on FB as well (Lisa Maria Fleury), feel free to add me as a friend too so that you can take a peak :)

                      If you bring your own photographer, and just have them stay there as part of your group (mine was only there for 3 nights) there is no problem.  I knew a photographer from my hometown and had her come with as part of my group and the hotel knew that she was a "paying guest" so there was no charge for her.  You can look at my pics on facebook as well.  Aubrey Green, or the photographer is on facebook as well and she is under Studio Noveau Photography.  Best wedding decision that we made was to bring her.
