I got married April 14th and it was amazing. Our dream wedding. We got married on the beach which I would not have any other way. However the other days I was there the weddings were at a diffeent location and it doesn't matter where you have the wedding each place is equally beautiful.
Nicole is the head wedding planner here and she is the BOSS. She really has her stuff together. She knew exactly who were were when we got there, and remembered every conversation we had had. I brought the e-mails with me but she already had everything. She has tons of pictures on her computer of different things to choose from. About 20 minutes before the wedding she came to get me in my room and while we were waiting she walkied everyone downstairs to make sure everything had started.
We got the videographer for $350 and it is perfect! Well worth the money. It's about 30 minutes of video including our ceremony.
We took our own photographer with us. "Jim Fish" of Jim Fish Photography from here in St. Louis and it was the best decision we made. Contact him if you are looking for a destination wedding photographer. He had three cameras with him and he and his wife are amazing.
We did the ttd the next day and it was awesome. We also jumped in the pool in our clothes.
We ate at Aunt Rubys for the reception but we did not rent it out b/c we had a small group. Really the things you can do here are endless. I just have to say to try and stay calm once you get there everything will just work out. It was the best decision we made.
Our parents did not understand why we made the decision to have a destinaiton wedding but afterwords they all said it's the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. Everyone was crying.
Please ask me any question. I will help any way I can.
