Hi Krista,

 

I had looked into photos at the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course- Aquaduct. Here is the response I got from them back in April: 


  In order to take pictures you can deal directly with me as I set up the date and organize the payment and the transport on the property. The cost for pictures is $250 per hour. This allows for three persons to go around on a four seater golf cart from the clubhouse to the aquaduct. Please let me know if you would like to go ahead and reserve a cart and also a time.  
Thanks Robert Ames, PGA Director of Golf Cinnamon Hill Golf Course Rose Hall, Jamaica (O) 1.876.953.2984 robert.ames@rosehall.com

Maybe that is what I remember seeing... thank you! There has to go be somewhere beautiful that won't charge us a ridiculous fee just to be taking photos there...? I'll keep researching but the Aquaduct is so beautiful. I wish I could swing that into my budget... maybe I need to pick up a part time job in addition to my full time one! :) 

 

Did you decide you were going to do that? If so, so jealous! Your pictures are going to be stunning!

Just had my 70 person wedding at The Grand, ceremony on the beach, reception at port maria. It was the best time of my life, wouldn't have changed a thing. We had a bonfire the night before which was so much fun. The wedding coordinators Syrecka and Janelle were AMAZING, best in the business. Took care of every little thing and they were both so sweet everyone loved them. The Grand ceremony and reception setup is breathtaking. Food and drinks were nonstop and so yummy. The flowers from Tai Flora were gorgeous and Misha Earle was awesome. I was most worried about the DJ but DJ Juvenile was perfect. we told him ahead of time, no lame group songs, no slow dances, just fun party music, lots of great top 40, dance, hip hop, and that's exactly what he did. He had every new song and everyone raved about him.

We did do first dance, and then a mom/son father/daughter at the same time. We did it right away and super short just to get them over with :)

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. :)

 

I found an answer from the FB page !!! Another bride said she had her dad who is a minister do her ceremony, but the Jamaican minister had to pronounce them and sign the marriage certificate.

Question....how did you handle the down payments for the outside vendors? I feel nervous sending someone I've never met/ so far away money via western union or deposit into their account??

AhhhH!! Thanks for the answer!! Haha, the resort replied and told us we could have him do a symbolic ceremony but still have the wedding package we wanted as well, so we might just do that!

Have him marry us legally in Ontario 5 months prior with just our parents there, then do the ceremony in Jamaica too! :)

It's definitely scary sending deposits to vendors you haven't met, but I trusted sending to tai flora and misha earle since they are both respected vendors.

Tai flora is the hotels's connection so no worry there but the private vendors raises some concern since its so many months in between. I guess we have to just "trust" and go with the reputable vendors only.

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
