When I booked my date I was corresponding with Nicole, but I haven't been in contact with her for a few months so I guess I may need touch base with Loreto to make sure everything is still on track for me. It's good to know that she has been good about replying to your messages. Hopefully she will continue along that route in the future.
For your private cocktail hour do you plan to hire a DJ or band, or will you be using an iPod?
I believe that you can have your ceremony at the gazebo, so long as you have less than 20 guests. One thing that I was warned about was that the pool bar doesn't close until 6:00pm, so there may be a couple of people still hanging out by the pool area. I think you run the same risk anyways at the beach, so I'm not too fussy about that.
We're hiring a DJ for the cocktail hour. I believe his cost is $150 per hour. I've been given the heads up that their system is only capable of playing cds so unfortuneatly we can't hook our ipod up.
I'm toying around with a couple of additional options like having a violinist or steel band for the ceremony and having some custom floral centerpeices for the dinner, etc. but I have to do a bit of a cost benefit analysis, especially seeing as how we'll be changing locations throughout the evening.
I'll update as plans progress!
