      Hi ShannonLeigh! I am getting married at ERC on April 30, 2010, not too far behind you :) I just emailed Veronica today asking for more information regarding other reception areas, too. She previously mentioned the beach was only an option if you have a minimum of 50 guests. I, too, have seen pics in the lobby/foyer area but only with the banquet set-up which I'm not crazy about. The restaurant option may be a nice alternative and offer more set-up options.

      As for photographers, my Mom is in contact with Sascha Gluck at Wedding Photographer Sascha Gluck for Cancun and the Riviera Maya, Mexico. His pricing is much better than some of the others we've looked into (which have been starting at around $5000). If you book him for a 2010 wedding before September 2009, he'll honor the 2009 pricing. I think we're leaning towards using his services.

      I, too, am considering other decorations for the reception but I want to travel light in that arena so I 'm waiting to hear back from Veronica about other decorations they may have available on-site (i.e. white lights, tea lights). I have a lot of other information that she's communicated as well - I've asked a lot of questions (so far) so that we can start planning accordingly. Of course, some of it will depend on the number of guests.

      Good Luck with everything!!!

                    hi girls!
                    We just recently booked out wedding at ERC on May 15th, 2010. I am so exited and I have been looking on this site for days now. It is so helpful. I am thinking of using the photographers from Moments that Matter http://www.MomentsTh..../PriceList.htm . They are reasonably priced and I like their pics. I am also looking into getting a catamaran for a sunset cruise the day before or after the wedding.

                      I noticed some links to flowers and decorations and even cakes for the gold wedding package, again for some reason i still don't have enough points on this site and i'm trying to decide on a color scheme, so if anyone has pdf files they can send to me directly, hopefully i can open them, i would soooo greatly appreciate it!
