    endless love - those pics are wayyy better than the ones I got cause I didn't want to get too close as the ceremony already started.

    smf47 - I am almost positive the isle is sand.

    The location of the beach ceremony is beautiful. It is on the far right side of the resort right off the Excellence section. It was nice that it is a covered area so your guests won't get too hot. Note that it is on the border of the property line, and to the right of the ceremony location, there were lots of beach goers and locals looking on. But - the ceremony site is set back pretty far from the water, so it isn't really intrusive, although they may get in your pictures.

    The reception location outdoors (shown in last recep photos posted by endlesslove) upstairs past the lobby overlooking the ocean and resort is beautiful!!! I also saw a reception set up on the sand that was decorated Mexican style which was pretty cool, but more public as it is in the center of the resort on the beach.

    The resort is beautiful and whatever you all decide, you will have a great time.

      I'm at the Excellence Riviera right now. We just had our symbolic wedding this past Tuesday, June 16. We did the Love Package (Silver Package). We added no extras except for 2 guests since the max is 20 total people. Here is the link to the photographers pics that we hired. They'll be up for 13 days.

        congratulations! excellent photos- looks like a great time was had by all....also, it seems that 'tiffany' blue is a very popular color choice for the beach setting....but it goes SO well!

        enjoy the honeymoon

          For everyone who had already had their wedding- did you rent a car? I'm worried about our guests getting to the resort. Does the resort have a shuttle that pics you up or did your guests get a cab?

            Congrats cowman! Love the pics! Hope you are enjoying the rest of your trip!

            endless love, do you mean getting to the resort from the airport? transfers were included in my vacation package to and from the airport. i've been to a few other resorts in mexico in the past and there was a shuttle bus that took us to the resort from the airport. it had travelers going to different resorts and made stops at different resorts to drop everyone off.

              I just wanted to recommend Octavio Montes as well. He was the photographer we hired and this is his site. He's very nice and very professional. We actually hired him a week before our wedding. We decided if we could find an affordable guy we would take him. We did his 4 hour package from 4-8 pm. He showed up at 3 pm ready to go and stayed until a little after 8 for no extra charge. The package we ordered let us pick out 110 pictures all of them that he took and he printed them on 6 x 8.5 inch photo paper. He then gave us the complete set of all of the pics on 2 dvd's for us to keep. All of that for $770. After seeing what other people cost I thought this was a steal.

                  For the cocktail hour/reception we went ahead and brought an IPOD and speaker dock. It worked out well. We didn't want to spend any extra. I don't think most people even would've noticed if there was music or not.
