        Did anyone use the onsite photographer? If not who did you use?

            Hey girls!  My wedding is not until January 2012, but with the help from this site and the facebook group I've decided to go with Phil Steingard!!  His pictures are amazing!!  The resort also doesn't charge an "outside photographer" fee because he works there so often!  You guys should check out his website!  PLUS he's there all the time, so he charges basically the same as he would in Canada if he can do more then one wedding when he travels.  Good luck planning!!

                I just got back from Punta Cana on Tuesday.  I had my ceremony this past Sat on the beach, had some hors 'deourves at the Sea and Sea reception right after for the guests while we took pictures,  and the private reception (dinner) at the Wet Bar. Photo Phil was my photographer and he def knows what he is doing.  I also had DJ Mannia there and we all danced from the start to the end. I don't think I sat down.  He was GREAT!!!   I had the best day of my life. 

                Sandra helped me along the way but Stephany was my WC when I got there and she def does a great job. I gave her my items that I wanted incorporated in the ceremony and reception and she definitely improvised and used them.  She also coordinated a group dinner for my guests at Sea and See Rest the night before the wedding and it was a set menu and it was excellent.  It was a nice touch. 

                 

                I had a private dinner so I paid $55 a plate.  We bought liquor bottles there (through WC) instead of the open bar which is too much $$$.  We order a few bottles of vodka, rum, and JD and the mixers were provided.  That was def a cheaper way to go.  We def got hooked up with other stuff too because I made friends (tipped) with the staff from the moment I got there so they remembered me.  I also speak Spanish so I was able to speak to everyone which I know helped.

                 

                I'm on my way to my honeymoon but can give a more detailed review in a few weeks.  I stayed at the Elegance and had a nice room.  I had 42 guests and they all had an amazing time.  It's a fun hotel, great staff and GREAT weather.  I can't wait to go back. 

                 

                I will post pics and all the great stuff later.  I just wanted to let you future brides know that we had the BEST time of my life.

                      Chendy,

                       

                      How did you go about getting the liquor there? That is one of my biggest concerns? Also, for the hors' deourves, did you get a separate package or it was just provided for you guys?

                       

                      Thanks
