I'm not really sure how that works actually ... I originally was going to say yes you could, however the minister the resort provides has all the paperwork and stuff for your marriage license and is responsible for getting everything filed.

Please please invest in an outside photographer so you have pretty pictures of your special day!

 

 

I am with kfarkas26 !!! Misha Earle is AMAZING !!! She photographed our wedding and TTD session as well ... waiting anxiously for the pics !! We didn't buy a single picture from DigiPix, not only were they ridiculously expensive, but I took better pictures with my camera ! We had considered buying a group pic they took the night of the rehearsal dinner, but I wasn't willing to spend the $15 they wanted for one 5x7 picture ! I will say however ... we did use Digipix to do our video for the ceremony, and we really loved it. If you don't want to spend $1000 + (and that's the cheap end) on a photographer, you should consider the resort videographer :)

    Bah, lol. Yeah I wasn't sure either. Other resorts had told us you had to pay the minister fees regardless, and Iberostar did tell me before that he could perform a symbolic ceremony, but I hadn't specified about legal at the time. We were originally going to the legal thing beforehand with my uncle, but since he's coming now anyways, I figured down there would be better. :)

            Thanks for that info! I was considering them for the videography. Do you mind sharing what your charge was for the pictures? Did she have 2 photographers?

              Hi Lauray, I actually sent out informal invites as my save the date via email. I had a graphic designer create a really nice one (looked as formal as paper would have). I have her creating the passport invites now as my formal invite. What did you choose?

                Hi Ladies, I think I read this somewhere before but I can't for the life of me find it again. We have an extra day of shooting with our photographer and are trying to decide what the best way to use it will be... if we can afford an excursion for our guests it will be that and our welcome dinner.

                 

                But, otherwise we are thinking about nearby venues where we could go and take some pictures like the Great Rose Hall House or the Aqueducts. Did anyone else contact them about just taking photos there... I think I read that they charge a pretty large fee. Anyone have any other suggestions of places that might make for some awesome photos? I might be open to TTD, not sure yet because our extra day of shooting might end up being the day beforeee the wedding which wouldn't work out so well! :)
