Oh man, light is the most important fact in a photo shoot, it means all!!! I used to suggest my brides to send me the itinerary, I review it and suggest the best timing for pictures and if possible to move some things to get the best of the daylight, at the end we can work in any light when we are creative enough, we can use flash, hard light or soft light but the result depends on the photographer skills, some of couple attitude and some the beauty of a place, effective communication is an art as well, be aware and select wise your photographer :)

 

Besos

Our wedding is March 27, 2012. Our photographer is Dean Sanderson. He has recommended we change our time to 4pm at the latest. I'm waiting for Ana to respond to a few of our requests and questions. 

Thank you for your advice!

Let me know how you do with that - I asked to have my November 2012 4pm time changed to 3:30, and she said no.  Sounds like there are ceremonies at 2pm and 4pm and that's it!   I hope you manage to change it - I'll push a bit more for it if you do!  lol

Hello ladies,

 

I just got back from a trip to OCT when I finalized some of the details for my wedding.

 

I am so excited that everything is coming together so nicely. Ana is just great, helpful and it feels like anything you want can be done.

I wanted to let everyone know that food is very good. We tried 4 different menus for dinner and 2 of the hoer oeuvre's (not sure about spelling :) ) and we loved it. But most of all the cake options are all fantastic. I could not decide because i wanted them all :)

 

I am starting to count the days to my wedding.

 

Countrybride looks like you had an amazing wedding. Congratulations!

 

Happy planing!

Ana

What menu options were the best/worst?  We are thinking of doing the surf and turf option. How about the cake.....do they do chocolate with white icing....or other combinations?

@AnaS- You are so lucky to be able to go down and taste the menu options!  Tell us what were the best options?  and also for the cake, what did you guys end up deciding?  Did Ana talk about the clear vases in reference to the flowers? or are you deciding to go with  getting it at Walmart?  Ana quoted me a price of 48usd per 3 clear vases with the submerged orchids and floating candles. At first, I thought that was high until I started inquiring around at home how much it would be and that is actually kind of a low price since it is an orchid.  I am leaning towards going with the price that was quoted but let me know what you decided.  Also did you and your FI decide on favors?  My fiancé and I might just get the favors while we are there or we might have them mailed directly to the resort. I asked Ana about having a local bakery make traditional Mexican cookies and putting them in little gift boxes and giving them as a favor. She said she could certainly do that because that is actually a Mexican wedding tradition. She does seem like she will try to do whatever it is you want. :-)  Happy you enjoyed your trip to OCT! My fiancé and I count the days until we are there again! :-)

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
